And how much power are you looking to make with it?
And is this a full track car or will it see street duty as well?

It made 609hp/569tq on the engine dyno. It is a street car that will see some road course a little drag racing.

Car looks great man! Could you give a little more detail about the Motul set up? Their website was pretty generic. How much of an improvement in ride and handling?

Thats Moton. It is an incredible improvement over the already amazing Z06's factory handling. It feels like it is on rails. Ride quality does not diminish.

We recently built an engine for a customer whose installer is in Minnesota.

You mean those aren't cans of brake fluid, damn typo. I was wanting to know how the system works and whats all invloved with installing it.

They are 7-way double adjustable coilovers. There are 7 positions of compression and rebound dampening. The canisters are nitrogen charged so you can adjust the pressure on the shock fluid. The spring perches are threaded on the shock body for ride height adjustment. Installing it is pretty easy. They take the place of the stock shocks. Two holes are drilled in the body to pass the fluid lines to the canisters which are mounted in the trunk area. Front canisters are mounted on the radiator upper cover. There is quite a bit of setup time to adjust the ride height. I have initial settings completed, but I still have to get the car on the scales and corner balance it.
