Vehicle description

$140,000.00 total investment.
Dyno charts shown in photos are with 40% e-85 @1020rwhp! And a pull with 50% e-85 @1042rwhp. Now with the Port Injection system the car runs full e-85 @1100rwhp!
This car needs a very specific buyer. A buyer that understands what it takes to make a car go this fast reliably. A buyer that’s not a "Kelly Blue Book Guy" sitting and comparing the value between a Stingray, Z06, ZR1 or Grand Sport. You cannot build a value based on data that doesn’t exist on KBBs" webpage. So, a car person understands that KBB doesn’t have an option tab that specifies the thousands upon thousands of dollars spent on the car. Wouldn’t that be great though? A menu option that allows you to select each modification you purchased and build an estimated value of such items. Well, that doesn’t exist. A potential buyer needs to just take the time and run some numbers for the parts their stock C7 Corvette will need to double the horsepower of a Z06 reliably!

The car was built to be a very fast, very reliable daily driver. Never street raced, garage kept. Small Scuff on mirror, small chip on targa top. Both caused by me. Those items are already deducted from my price! Other than those two items, the exterior is perfect. Interior is perfect. The Car runs at 180 degrees on average, and under spirited driving on a hot day it runs 180-200 degrees. This, thanks to the upgraded capacity of the LG Radiator, and 160 degree thermostat. All while running ice cold A/C!
I have every invoice for every dollar spent on this car. Every receipt. Very well documented by JMS Racing out of San Antonio. The engine was built by LME out of Houston (Late Model Engines) then ultimately installed by JMS Racing.
Flex Fuel analyzer and tuner, using Port Injection, the car makes 1100rwhp @E-85
(Estimated 1200hp at crank). The car uses methanol, barely. Due to the Port Injection upgrade, I use only a 10th of the methanol that I used pre-port injection. So, the cars’ tune is NOT meth dependent, I only have it because I didn’t want to uninstall the Alky methanol system and then have to patch the nozzle holes on the inlet pipe. So, the alky methanol system is still intact, and running at its lowest meth output. If you’re knowledgeable about tuning, not making a car dependent on meth is extremely important in maintaining the reliability of any forced induction motor. This is why I just spent another 8k and upgraded to LMR Port Injection, as it now eliminates the need for methanol on account of the additional fuel supply. I have a total of 140k into this car. So, it’s a Perfect opportunity for someone to have a 1200hp car, and not have to start from scratch on a completely stock corvette. Just think! ! Hennessey will charge 65k to take a stock Z06 and build it to make 1000rwhp. Not including the AFE Stage II Race Coilover suspension that my car already has.
The summary of upgrades are listed below:
- LME (Late Model Engines) 1200 HP spec’d Longblock. 377” @ 10.5:1 Compression, Ported Heads, Cam, ARP Studs, LT4 dry sump oil system, Wiseco Pistons, Callies H-Beam Rods, Clevite H- Series Rings, Manley Dry Sump Crankshaft, NGK Spark Plugs
- LME Billet Upper Intake System
- LMR Port Injection Rails (eliminates the LT4 Direct Injectors I was running previously)
- A&A Corvettes Supercharger System / Vortech YSI-Trim Blower w/ 10 rib pulley @ 25psi boost
- American Racing Headers w/ Titanium Heat Wrap
- LG Radiator
- 160 degree thermostat
- X-Pipe
- Fore Walboro Triple 525 Pump Fuel System with hidden fuel primer switch.
- Flex Fuel, E85 Analyzer and Tuning System. (Automatically and seamlessly tunes the car based on the content of the fuel tank) (93 octane yields less horsepower, E85 yields higher horsepower.)
- Custom Billet Catch Can
- LT1-S Organic Triple Disk Monster Clutch
- Carbon Fiber Drive Shaft (shaved several lbs off the car)
- Brand new Toyo Proxes R888R
- Procharger Race Blow Off Valve
- MGW Short Throw Shifter
- Suspension / AFe Stage II Race Coilover Shocks w/ AFe Stage II Sway Bars. Fully adjustable ride height, as well as adjustable compression and dampening settings (shaved several pounds off the car)
(Full disclosure: The new coil overs replaced the OEM electronic shocks. So, upon start-up, the dash displays “Service Suspension” because the computer is looking for an OEM electronic shock. The driver just hits "OK" on the steering wheel menu, and simply moves on without issue. Again, this is because the car used to have electronic dampened shocks from the factory. Which were replaced by “analog” AFe Stage II Racing Coil overs!)
- Carbon Fiber Dash
- Blackvue 4k dashcam with wiring hidden into the interior lighting module. Very clean look!
- Cray Astoria forged mono-block wheels powder coated matte black
Odometer reads 14000 miles. THE Completely brand new powertrain currently has only 2000 miles. I have two keys and one manual. Plus a car cover.
