If you are reading this, you probably like boost. Corvettes sure do, which is why the new 2019 ZR1 has a massive supercharger poking through its hood. More boost means more power, so if you need 1,000 horsepower and 966 lb-ft of torque at your command Hennessey Performance is here for you.
You might be wondering how they have already developed a set of upgrades. It is simple. They are able to make identical numbers on the LT4, which is found in every Corvette Z06 and Camaro ZL1. To make 755 horsepower from the factory, the ZR1 will arrive with high flowing intake and exhaust systems, which will allow HPE to make the same power as their HPE1000 Corvette Z06 and the Exorcist Camaro without such a radical cam and top end. But that doesn’t stop them from porting the heads by hand and dropping in larger valves. It will be capable of reaching 60 mph in 2.5 seconds (with drag tires) along with consistent quarter-mile times in the mid 9’s.
No matter how potent the factory exhaust is, it doesn’t compare to Hennessey’s stainless headers and high-flow catalytic converters. Although the new car has 13 separate heat exchangers, the intercooler system will be upgraded inside the blower along with its radiator. Each car will also include serialized badges inside and out, with all modifications backed by a 2 year/24,000 warranty.
