Q:

Hi I am interested in buying the corvette you have on eBay, I am wondering if you have ever dealt with anybody from Australia before regarding modifications to the car and import restrictions or bans against modified cars?

Also has there been any chopping of the body in the engine bay to fit the blower?

Thankyou.

A:

I have never dealt with anyone from Australia before. Mostly the middle east when it comes to out of country purchases. They have never had any issues importing modified cars. But every country is different. You would need to check with your country's customs to get that info. Here is a link to help you out and get started. http://www.customs.gov.au/site/page4371.asp

As to your second question, there has been no chopping of the engine bay to get the blower to fit. It is the original engine bay and everything in has been custom fabricated as necessary to get it all to fit

 

Q: 

Sir, I just have to say, you have impeccable taste in your ride and performance upgrades. This has to be, the most sweetest Vette I have ever seen. Alas, if I could, I'd bring your money in fresh 1000 dollar bills. Good luck with the sale, and with your new family. Ron

A: 

Thanks Ron. It is not easy letting this car go. I only hope someone will get as much enjoyment out of it as I did. 

 

Q:  

Your probably going to laugh but its just a Gee-whiz question. What kind of gas milage do you get in this beast and will it run on 91 octane.

A: 

Good question. Gas mileage is probably around 12mpg....sometimes more, sometimes less depending on how hard you are driving it. I'd like to think that it does pretty good considering the power it puts out. The Corvette is already a very efficient sports car. As for running on 91 octane: I would not do it without a new tune. It was tune to run on 93 octane and methanol. The car needs as much octane as possible to put down the HP numbers you see. But yes, if you have it retuned to use 91 octane, it will run just fine, but the HP will decrease a bit.

 

Q: 

Hi So is this a regular vet that you just put loads of money into? Or is a z06 or the zr1 ?

A: 

This is a c6 coupe that I drove for 2 months, put less than 6k miles on, and then dropped it off at Dallas Performance, spent the next 2 years engineering and building the car and tweaking it to get everything just right; picking out close to $100k worth of Z06, ZR1, and other specialty aftermarket parts (some of which had to be fabricated specifically for my car) for a one of a kind build that you will see nowhere else in the world. :)

 

Q: 

I just wanted to commend you on the way you have answered all these questions. It's very rare to see someone approach them with such politeness. You have indeed built a beautiful car, hands down one of my favorite corvettes. Good luck with the sale and the family. Garrett

A: 

I appreciate the kind words!

 

Q: 

what type fuel pump /s do u have to handle that much hp?? very nice vette.....Greg

A: 

There isn't just a boost or pump or anything simple. There is a completely new custom fuel system that was installed to handle the 1000hp. For details on the custom system, contact Taylor Sims at Dallas Performance. 214-349-1300 Thanks

 

Q: 

so what happens if the meth kit runs dry during a race? Also how does the body of this car differ form a z06? (not necessarily the panels but thinks like the engine cradle)

A: 

If the meth runs dry during a race the car will pull timing and will feel slower. It is not designed to run without meth however. Meth is not like nitrous and is going to last you quite a bit longer. The windshield wiper tank was converted to the meth tank, so when you are running low on meth, the "add windshield washer fluid" light will show up on the dash. If you are driving long distances and you run low, you can pull into any walmart and buy a product called HEET. It is basically pure methanol and a convenient source of fuel while traveling. The biggest difference in the body is the frame. The Z06 has an aluminum frame and a magnesium engine cradle. It also has a dry sump oil system. The front fenders are also carbon fiber. Those are the main differences. The rest of the parts have either been upgraded to ZR1 parts, or even better aftermarket parts where GM doesn't make something strong enough to support 1000hp.

 

Q:

does this car have any kind of warranty ? if so how much.thanks John

A:

This car has no warranty. The GM warranty became void as soon as I started modifying it. There are no guarantees when you start engineering vehicles beyond what was thought possible. I can guarantee you though that I have made every effort to make the car as solid as possible. The is build occurred over a 2 year period where I would make changes each time to any weak link I could find. My #1 priority building this car was reliability because it was going to be my daily driver. But life changed and I had to buy a car with a back seat because I now have kids. Good luck and thanks for the question.

 

Q: 

How much does the car weigh? Also is the meth kit needed to make those numbers? How does the car do in traffic? Do you mind sharing the approximate 1\4 times?

A: 

I've never weighed the car since the completion of the build. A stock C6 weights about 3200lbs. With the additional forged engine and supercharger weight, the car probably adds a couple hundred pounds. The car is also lightened a bit with the carbon fiber hood. The meth kit is needed to make those numbers. As you approach the 1000hp mark, you need as much octane as you can get, and the cool charge that methanol provides is needed. The windshield wiper fluid container was converted to the meth injection, so it is very easy to fill the tank with methanol. How does the car do in traffic? Well...any manual car is horrible in traffic in my opinion. But I believe the RPS triple carbon clutch ($3k) really provides a good clutch slip for stop and go. Is a 1000hp car ideal for traffic? Probably not. But it's not much worse than the manual truck I drive around. As for the 1/4 mile times....I've never tracked the car. Similar corvettes with about 1000hp run low to mid 9s at around 150mph. Keep in mind that these are good drivers and they are running different tires.

 

Q: 

sorry if this is an ignorant question but im not familiar with this kind of power. can the car be driven daily or does it require continuous maintenance?

A: 

Not an ignorant question. I built the car to be a daily driver. I eventually bought another car with a back seat for the kids though. Besides the typical oil change for the engine and supercharger and refilling the methanol tank, there isn't much else to do. Treat it like any other car, but if you are going to drive it hard often, the frequency of maintenance will obviously increase.

 

Q: 

is the car a z06, a grandsport, or a ZR!

A: 

The car is a C6 with parts from all 3 cars. I've taken what I have felt is the best of the Corvette family and also added better aftermarket parts where GM does not make what is necessary to support 1000HP. It has the full Grand Sport body. It has the ZR1 driveline (transmission and differential), and it has the Z06 brakes. The Z06 and ZR1 do not have a removable top, this car does. That's a big plus for many. Many believe the Z06 ls7 engine is not the engine of choice to supercharge and add large amounts of PSI. The ZR1 already has a supercharger, but it only puts down about 600hp to the wheels. So to match this car, you would need to remove that supercharger and add a larger one. This build was planned out well in advance and no expense was spared and I tried to make no compromises. Thanks for looking.

 

Q: 

Your family is very lucky to have you. If it was me, I would have chosen the corvette. (kidding of course) Lots of Luck with the sale and new family.

A: 

Haha. Thanks. If they could ride in the front seat it may be a different story!

 

Q: 

I sold my 08 zo6,in order to buy a zr1.After seeing this beautifull machine,its better than a zr1,i have the cash to buy it.This car is capable of way over 200mph.will the Targa top stay on at this kind of speed?Have you done any suspension upgrades to handle,extra hp.?Thanks Scot 808.277.1294

A: 

Hey Scot, I believe it's better than a zr1 too, but that all depends on the person. The car is solid and can handle 200mph. It was built for the Texas Mile, and there are no weak links on the car. It has the zr1 transmission with hardened mainshaft and also the zr1 differential with hardened output shafts. It also has DSS 1000HP axles. Adjustable PFADT coilovers also sit on all 4 corners. The targa top will stay on for sure. Corvettes have gone much faster with no issues at the Texas Mile. I also have the solid targa top that would go with the car to whomever buys it. Thanks Tony 214-207-4143

 

Q: 

The car has ac?The car horsepower can 1000hp? Thanks.

A: 

The car has cold AC and all working accessories. No comfort accessory or any for that matter were removed in the building of this car. The car makes well over 1000HP to the crank. But 935rwhp to the wheels. It is capable of breaking 1000rwhp possibly with a new CPU module and some other modifications, but trust me, 935rwhp is ALOT and more than most people can handle, and traction then becomes the limiting factor, but I understand the appeal of hitting the nice round number of 1000.

 

Q: 

Do you have a pic with the targa top off? thanks, pc

A: 

I do not at the moment. But I will go to the shop and snap some pictures with the top off, the interior, and the engine bay. Keep an eye out over the next few days.
