BUT, if you are one of the millions of enthusiasts who have, your luck is about to change. This sequentially-shifted C7 Z06 is the ultimate track car with power to spare, great looks and the tone from those Corsa exhaust tips is intoxicating! Katech has continued engineering products to improve Corvettes, and their latest offerings have supported some of the highest-horsepower LS- and LT-engines to date. But Katech is more than just how to add more columns elementor and horsepower!
Safety was paramount, and a complete rollcage was installed into the interior of the C7. Plates were added to mate the steel cage to the car's aluminum frame. We came across this video of a Katech-prepped C7 Z06 track monster that has been modified for safety, performance, and severe track-duty. The car has the requisite suspension modifications and numerous aero and cooling components to make it much more track-capable; but the one thing that will have the folks standing at the pit wall when this car flies by is its sequentially-shifted manual transmission.
With the addition of electronics, up-shifts and down-shifts are both possible, with rev-matching down-shifts negating the oft-maligned heel-toe procedure. Weight has been addressed by removing the side windows and their mechanisms completely, while the front, rear and small, quarter-glass has been swapped out for polycarbonate versions.
Katech has added heat exchangers out in front, with additional ductwork to move the air out through the wheel openings. Another GM-style pump helps keep coolant flowing and cooling like it should.
There are also provisions for additional transmission coolers, should the need arise. A front splitter and rear diffuser ensure that turbulence is kept to a minimum while down-force is maximized. A track-engineered undertray with tunnel is installed, but a street version is in development.
The Z06's LT4 engine gets assisted cooling through additional heat extractors mounted to the front of the car. Safety was also addressed by the addition of the rollcage and some ingenious engineering has kept it as ergonomic as it is safe. Mounting plates were added to the aluminum frame to allow fastening the steel roll cage to the vehicle. The bottoms of both doors have been trimmed to make way for the door bars while still affording an arm rest for comfort. Finding room for a rollcage isn't easy in a C7.We know, advertisements are annoying and slow down the internet.

Katech went to work adding their Level 4 upgrade package, which includes CNC porting the stock cylinder heads, also porting the supercharger and snout, upgrading the camshaft with a new K-Force 2 replacement, a new mm throttle body, and including a Roto-Fab air intake system. Most importantly, the supercharger drive pulley was replaced with an ATI damper, and the crank pulley was beefed up as well. According to the video published late last week, the now breathed on Katech ZL1 1LE was making hp and lb-ft of twist at the rear wheels when it left the shop.
It might not be as insane as the Hennessy kitswhich can boost output past the 1, hp mark. Your email address will not be published.

First Name. Last Name.All rights reserved. More on this:. Up Next. This is where Katech Performance stepped onto the scene with the Stage 4 upgrade package, translating to RWHP and rear-wheel torque. The list of modifications include CNC ported heads, supercharger, and snout, the mm throttle body, K-Force 2 camshaft, ATI damper, upper and lower pulleys of the supercharging system, as well as the Roto-Fab air intake system.
A serialized plaque rounds off the list, which is understandable considering how much it costs to upgrade an already expensive car like the ZL1 1LE. If we assume a percent loss from the driveline, the crankshaft numbers for this Camaro would be horsepower and pound-feet, give or take a few for both metrics. For that money, Chevrolet is much obliged to add front dive planes, a more aggressive front splitter, black hood wrap, carbon fiber inserts, low-gloss black mirrors, dark taillamps, inch gloss-black forged aluminum wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R rubber, red calipers with the 1LE logo, DSSV dampers and performance suspension, as well as an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
