Top Speed Corvette C5 Z06
Built and Tuned by Hinson Motorsports

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.



3/22/12 Update
New numbers are in!

2,246 HP @ 7,800 RPM
34 psi


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, Lane Culver, Butler Performance, Ryan Carpenter, Buddy AndersonPerformance, and Noah Mitros for making this happen so quickly.

This is a custom tall deck 427ci solid roller engine built in partnership with Butler Performance. The guys at Butler Performance handle our big cubic engine builds. These RHS blocks are great when they're in capable hands of a great machine shop. Give us a call to help plan your next race engine build.



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..

Will be interesting to see if that Alum RHS block will last for a long pull at high boost. Pretty cool build though.

Actually putting the power down with a rear wheel drive car +no weight in the back will be even more intresting. lol.

A camaro went 240+ so i guess it is possible. definitely a cool build!

I am sure he will be contacting ProLine for one of the 100% Billet Aluminum Motors. This is pretty normal at the 10.5 Tire events. I hope that RHS Block will withhold the power and torque if not I bet it splits right down the mainline of the cam bore. I am not sure who is tuning it or who will be tuning it but Petty is the man when it comes to tuning turbo V8's. I love Turbo V8's. I would LOVE to own a 02 Camaro SS built LS1 with 2 PTE 62mm Billet Turbos
fun street car!

LOL

So, this Vette makes around 2000 Rwhp or more.There was a Ford GT that ran the Texas Mile and trapped over 260 mph, while making less power than this Corvette. Does this Vette have any chance to beat the Ford GT's record and trap 270 mph?
