Default 1,870 HP so far.. New Texas Mile Build

Top Speed Corvette C5 Z06
Built and Tuned by Hinson Motorsports


4-27-2012
We have arrived at the Ohio Mile!










3-23-2012
Unfortunately, we had to postpone the trip to Texas. We simply ran out of time to test before the race, and that is a long haul to ride untested. So we're planning to attend the Ohio Mile, which has 4 events this year. We'll be tested and ready.



3/23/2012
New numbers are in!

2,246 HP @ 7,800 RPM
34 psi






3-20-2012
We made our first pulls on the engine dyno! We made 1,870 horsepower on low timing and 27psi. We're turning up the boost and timing tomorrow. We'll run out of injector around 2,400 horsepower. Special thanks to Young's Performance, Lane Culver, Butler Performance, Ryan Carpenter, Buddy Anderson, and Noah Mitros for making this happen so quickly.

We are headed for the Texas Mile on March 23-25! We are thrashing to complete the project now (3/20/12). We ran 224 mph on low boost with our previous build. We're looking to beat our own record and eventually compete for the world record for the fastest piston powered car. This new car is a combination of C5 and C6 parts resulting in extreme performance. We have built on the information gained from our previous car, and this ride is looking to push the boundaries for standing mile racing.

Getting ready for the engine dyno.



Amazing craftsmanship by the guys at Hinson Motorsports.



Shameless plug for our friends at RHS & Total Engine Airflow/TrickFlow. We stock and use these great manufacturers for our personal and customer use. Let us know how we can help you assemble your next combination of parts!



RHS intake spacers for the tall deck build.



Forced air enters here. Intake is a GM piece with custom fuel rail solution by HINSON Motorsports. An intake elbow plate has been bolted down to the top. We will custom fabricate the elbow to work on this engine.



A billet alternator bracket built by Lane here at the shop. Got amps?



Custom water plates for -12 AN cooling connections. Built in house at Hinson Motorsports.



Custom high capacity oil pan with trap doors for fluid control.



Custom external oil pressure regulator on race oil pan.



Amazing craftsmanship by Buddy & Lane at HINSON Motorsports. Great work guys!



118mm Turbo - It's bigger than you think.



Don't get sucked in



5" Downpipe.



Lots of boost = Twin BOV.



Funny car cage for driver protection. Still under progress when picture was taken.



This is an all business interior featuring a 25.5 cage for protection.



Intercooler and engine water tanks in the trunk. All fabricated in house.



Running a TR6060 and ZR1 differential with Quaiffe LSD. Thanks to RPM Transmissions for their support on the initial build in 2011.



SPEC Twin disk from last year's C6 race car. Thank you SPEC for the continued support in 2012.



High rise hood to clear the intake elbow.



Custom adjustable rear wing.



Rear wing support for additional drag and down force. Braces supported by custom structure built behind the rear bumper.



True Forged 18" wheels.



Looking to put a "2" in front of that horsepower quote.



Old sticker from previous life as a single turbo 76mm. Kinda funny in today's form..

Nice build. Can't wait to see what she'lll run. How do you speculate 2400hp of injector with 160s? Also, why the low gearing?
