now it needs a super charger and the LS7, some long tube headers...... should get it some better performance...

what could be better... you can now "fly" a Corvette.... talk about an instant panty dropper...

The LS7 isn't the best motor for superchargers or turbos. The top ring gland is shallow and its easy to blow the piston. Most of us just set them up 600+ HP with a small cam and ported intake and beat the snot out of them as daily drivers that last 200,000 ish miles. If you boost, its better to hop up a lS3 for high HP builds. Lot of people do 1000HP LS7 but the sort of regret it.

in another vid they explained that the gear box is a step up type... So torque is gonna be needed...

some wondered why go with a V8... the answer was its cheaper, fuel wise and maintenance wise... imagine pulling up to a jiffy lube to get an oil change.

the long story basically said they wanted the look and feel of a Jet but not the expense... especially for those ex-military guys that continued flying but cant afford a sport jet.
