It runs on a flex tune and comes with an assortment of power mods.
Late Model Racecraft (LMR) is back with another powerful Chevrolet Corvette. The Texas-based tuner upgraded a C7 Corvette Z06 to 900 horsepower. That figure is the result of several modifications, most notable of which are upgrades to the 1.7-liter supercharger and a flex-fuel system. LMR has a penchant for uprating Corvettes, like it did on a C8, tuned to over a thousand horses.
The owner, Christian Brown, initially brought the Corvette to LMR for minor upgrades. The American sports car was upgraded with a cold air intake, aftermarket headers, and a tune, resulting in 600 rear-wheel horsepower. However, Christian wanted more power, so he returned to the shop for further upgrades.
For the next stage of the build, the Z06 received a new cold air intake system and throttle body. It was then ported, received a custom cam kit, and got new pulleys. Aside from this, it has new headers, a custom exhaust system, and a revamped fuel system, which includes a bigger fuel pump and injectors. It then received a flex-fuel sensor and gauge, allowing it to run on either 93-octane fuel or E85.
LMR squeezed more power, now producing 874 hp and 826 Nm of torque (609 ft-lb of torque), translating to over 900 horses at the crank.
Despite the extra power, the car still has its factory heat exchanger and does not have an expansion or ice tank. The intake temperatures are still manageable, but if the owner wants to be more competitive on the track, he must buy the modifications above. The American sports car also has Toyo R888R tires for extra grip and to help put the power down.
It's not the end yet for this Corvette build, as Christian may add more power to the American sports car by giving it a better intake cooling system and other modifications. Who knows, it may end up like the 1,500-hp LMR Corvette Stingray with all the modifications available.
