LPE 630hp ZL1 build thread with photos and Chassis Dyno Video!

This beautiful black 2013 ZL1 (equipped with a manual transmission) belongs to Perry & Terry Dillingham. They dropped the car off Saturday (10/6/12) for a 630hp upgrade.

- Upon arrival we took the car straight to the chassis dyno for a baseline run where the car made an impressive 528 rwhp/ 524 lbs/ft torque on the first run and 519 rwhp/ 517 lbs/ft torque on the second run. (See attached image)

10/8/12
- Next, we brought the car into the shop for the removal of the supercharger front cover (snout).

- The snout is then taken to our machine shop for removal of the factory supercharger pulley.

- Here is a picture of the ported snout

10/9/12

- Pressing the new 10 bolt hub on the snout

- New solid isolator installed

- We installed the new Airraid intake while we were waiting on the machine work on the snout

-The car is now all back together ready for a date with the chassis dyno calibration engineer tomorrow

Come back tomorrow for the chassis dyno video and final numbers!

Is a solid isolator needed when swapping the pulley? If so what does it do?

Gets rid of supercharger rattle as spring in on LSA motor and contacts blower shaft. Other than that nothing, your just getting LS9 isolator.

It's a little higher than normal. On average you see around 480 to 515 on the M6 cars. Just remember that the weather is getting cooler, fuel may or may not of had ethonal mixed in the fuel from the pump. Time of day during the dyno run, in all there are a bunch of factors we don't know about.

Take it for what it is, dyno runs are just there to verify that the vehicle is getting the proper tune and air to fuel mixture. It's a nice tool to use to properly adjust a car after modifications.

I thought LPE was using Rotofab/LPE CAIs?

The package includes an LPE air intake, but the customer opted for an Airaid intake instead (we are a dealer for Airaid as well).

It improves the air flow. The power numbers vary from car to car

Thanks,

Here is a video of the Camaro on the chassis dyno for final calibration. It made an impressive 565 rwhp/ 571 lbs/ft torque!

Also, attached is the final dyno sheet.


Thanks,

Got my car yesterday and I'm very impressed with the LPE 650 upgrade. 624 ft lbs of torque at the rear wheels feels incredible. Kudos to Jeff M and the LPE team.

Just curious, what is different from the 630 package to the 650 package that you got an extra 50+ torque to the rear than the build above?

I think an injector upgrade and a larger lower pulley to increase the boost.

If you check the LPE's web site they list the differences. I was really impressed when they gave me the final numbers. Most of the 650 HP package cars dont have that much torque at the wheels.

As DangerZL1 said, the difference is an injector upgrade along with a new balancer and lower pulley.
