Default 1000hp Yenko Corvette now on sale from (formerly) SLP

In true American form, Specialty Vehicle Engineering says in its brochure that there’s “no substitute for cubic inches or supercharging,” which is why the 1000 HP Corvette features a 6.8-liter bored and stroked V8 based on the Grand Sport’s factory 6.2-liter LT-1 engine.

gets a block that has been blueprinted (i.e. its components are chosen to meet exacting tolerances), as well as a forged crankshaft, forged H-beam rods, forged aluminum pistons, and an upgraded fuel system.
Quote:
the Stage II 1000HP engine—which makes an SAE certified 1,000 horsepower and 850 lb-ft according to vice president David Hamburger—gets CNC ported high-flow LT4 heads, stronger main and head fasteners, a 20 percent larger displacement supercharger (2,900 cc, to be exact—which the company says yields 25 percent more boost), a 10 rib belt drive, a 10 percent larger throttle body, an upgraded exhaust system, and a different fuel system. Automatic versions get beefier internals (with a 12 month, 12,000 mile warranty), while manual models get a different clutch than stock.
Quote:
The Stage II 1000 HP Yenko/SC Supercharged Corvette costs $68,9995 in addition to the stock Corvette Grand Sport, while the automatic will run you $77,995 plus the factory car.

The packages can be ordered through authorized GM dealers, and each come with a three year, 36,000 mile “engine and supercharger assembly limited warranty.”

There's no substitute for adding more power to a car other than adding more power to a car.

Grandsport is a z06 minus the engine, so weight savings is already there.

Seems Yenko sold quite a few Corvettes but never modded any.
