475 horsepower and 0-60 in 5.0 seconds! HOW

Discussion in '1993 Callaway CR1 Corvette' started by z28infront, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. The LT1 must suck, a stock LS1 with 305 horsepower does 0-60 in 5.1 seconds, OH thats Z28 and the 2002'Vette z06 LS1 with 405 horsepower does 0-60 in 4.0 seconds stock. Go away callaway.

    The 2002 z06 has a LS6 engine not the LS1, not sure it makes a differance though.

    This has to be wrong. Maybe its slower because of all the manjuice i spilled on it when i saw how beautiful it was. Just a thought.<!-- Signature -->

    A stock '94 MKIV Supra could waste this piece of sh*t. <!-- Signature -->

    Gday. Its either because
    A) Its torque peak is around the mid/top rpm range @ 5000 rpm
    B) Its gear ratios are wide which would = less accelleration with a bit more top speed. Im sure its one of them.
    but geez, 1993 with 470 odd bhp wow

    LT1 is the Vette engine used from like 92 to 97 I think. Unlike the all aluminum LS1 used in today's stock Vettes that produces around 350 hp, the LT1's only produced 305 hp and were all iron except for the heads. LT1's aren't that great for low end torque because of the short runners on the fuel injection system, but pretty good for high end driving. This is a complete switch from the 82-91 (maybe 90 or 89 instead of 91) Vettes that had the tuned port injection that was all about torque and no top speed.

    Some of the numbers on this website are wrong.. I guess they just put something down if they don't know it.

    It is wrong. I have a 93' automobile magizine where they put this up against a modded RX-7. I firget whose version it was but it had 365hp. Anyways they confirmed a 4.4 0-60 time
