Project Corvette
 
Welp, this arrived on Thursday as I got home from work. Its Asshansons old 2006 Corvette. Previous owner ended up dropping a valve and locking the motor after he only put around 3k miles on it over the last 3 years. I made the journey down to Iowa to look at it 2 weeks ago and debated what to do... After some heavy thinking and some negotiating, it's in the garage.

I will start to tear into after our wedding takes place mid July. Overall condition of the car when I looked at it a couple weeks back was rough. Once it was delivered I gave it a bath and an interior polish. It looks in much better shape than I though it would be. Still needs a good exterior detail, but that will come once the engine gets addressed.

Still has all the same mods Andrew left on it when he sold it, no changes. Once the engine comes out and I figure out what can be salvaged ill decide on what to do engine-wise. Thinking built shortblock with a mild cam for around 500whp.

Nice! Congrats! I'm sure it feels good to have a fun car again, regardless of its current condition. :)

When does the bowtie tattoo get installed?

GMstyle! I think right around 57k, battery is dead so I have to charge that up tomorrow to double check it.

Awesome to see, in for updates!

Re: Project... Im back in the game
 
Excited to see what you decide for the motor, a milder cam actually designed for a supercharger application instead of the stupid big one in there now haha.

It will definitely be over 500whp. Oh, and it's already setup for E85, run all of the boost!

Re: Project... Im back in the game
 
Thats what I told him! He keeps saying, eh. I dunno. I'm like well if it can make over 500whp easily and comfortably, why limit it at 500whp haha.

Honestly, I think you should get slicks and put a chute on it while your at it.

Andrew put this in the SB

http://www.corvetteforum.com/forums/...rivetrain.html

Incase it gets closed down for some reason:

2006 Corvette 3LT Black/Black/Black
44.5k Miles on the car
1200 miles on new engine, clutch/flywheel, transmission, and torque tube (just broken in)

Performance
- 427 forged stroked LS3 shortblock (Eagle rods/crank, Mahle pistons, details and receipts available), 11.5:1 cr
- FAST 102 intake
- LS3 heads
- PatrickG Custom grind cam (239/247, .610/.632, 114+2)
- Comp chrome moly 7.425 pushrods
- TEA dual valvesprings w/ ti retainers
- LS7 lifters
- SLP underdrive pulley
- Monster Stage 4 Clutch w/ Lightweight Billet Flywheel and Remote Bleeder
- Built T56 (Doug Rippie Motorsports, details and receipts available)
- Rebuilt torque tube
- Z06 engine oil cooler
- Dewitts heavy duty radiator
- OBX 1 3/4" stainless Headers/Midpipes
- Corsa Sport axleback
- K&N CAI
- Tuned by Carl @ CJ Tunes
- Z06 fuel pump assembly
- 57LB FAST injectors
- Planned to tune for E85, hence the fuel pump upgrade - haven't yet (weather's just getting warm here), but will soon unless buyer prefers otherwise
- Stainless brake lines (Doug Rippie Motorsports)
- Extra set of Hawk pads

Exterior
- IForged TE10 18x9.5, 19x11 wheels
- Nitto Invo 275 front, 305 rear
- 30% tint
- RPI Designs Taillight and Sidemarker blackout kit (can remove if buyer prefers)
- Extra set of 4 C5Z rear wheels w/ Pirelli slicks
- Lowering bolts installed front and rear, lowered a bit
- Transparent roof

Interior
- 3LT (dual zone climate, seat warmers, etc)
- HUD

It was built to be a rock solid daily driver and track day car. The new engine and drivetrain is just broken in, running fantastic. I will have exact dyno numbers soon (very soon if there's interest), but it should be a good bit over 500rwhp and around 500rwtq. I put a lot of time and money into the car, especially this past winter, and was looking forward to enjoying it, but the wife is looking at a career change, and this would facilitate her taking time off to study for a while.

2500 horsepower, then hit up the guys from street outlawz and have them come up for racing
awesome dude

Halon 07-06-2015 03:46 PM

Re: Project... Im back in the game
 
I'd say do whatever you want to. 500hp is plenty to have fun with, and it'd probably give some nice peace of mind knowing that your not pushing the envelope with the setup which is a nice feeling.
