why not throw this twin turbo on a new Z06?

Discussion in '1988 Callaway Sledgehammer Corvette' started by Str8Pipe, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. Hell, if they can get an 88 this fast with a twin turbo they should do the same with the new Z06, sure would make it probly even more faster, maybe create a new top speed record?<!-- Signature -->

    Damn strait! I thought I was the only one wondering why they havent tried to make a C5 Sledgehammer. Dear God that would be insane.

    My guess is that Reeves Callaway bores easily.

    That, and there isn't an enormous market for high performance parts for the new small block.

    Yet.

    Hey, I'd like to see an LT-5 Sledgehammer. I think the potential is there.

    It's not the fastest car, it's only a record breaking car.

    Well, there are some obvious reasons.
    Reeves Callaway doesn't work with modding the new C5 Vettes. Dunno why, would be a great idea, he only works with the C4 style.

    I own a 1989 Vette, same as the 1988 internally, some exterior details different, and that engine is SIGNIFICANTLY less complex than the new Z06's engine. Sure that car would go fast as all get out with a twin turbo, but the z06's isn't built for that. The new Corvette z06 is already in a class by itself. As it stands, it's quite hard to drive on the street, it's more at home in the track.

    hey rusty11 it's simple: you suck major cock
     
  10. Re: why not throw this twin turbo on a new Z06?

    Yeah, Callaway likes that ZR-1 way to much, I don't think the the 10hp advantage concerns him to much....is it the suspension package, more aerodynamic (As hard as it is to beleive GM would make it worse more that 12 years later)? I just don't get it.
     
  11. Re: why not throw this twin turbo on a new Z06?

    now that i think about i can't think of any turbo vette's that went on production.
