The claim made for today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe ZO6 is that it puts out over five hundred ponies at the wheels. That’s by way of a Lingenfelter supercharger and a lot of other work, but is it enough to lift twenty-five grand from your wallet?
I’m at Lingenfelter’s shop in Wixom, Michigan for a cars and coffee. Come walk around with me and check out some awesome cars.
If the standard Z06’s 1740cc supercharger isn’t big enough for you, Callaway will build you one with a 2300cc unit that rises the horsepower figure to 757 and the torque to 777 lb-ft. Because the Corvette Z06 just didn’t have enough power stock, right?
Renown tuner Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and Southern Comfort Automotive birthed their idea for a “GM version of the Ford Raptor” as the Chevy Reaper some months ago. Cool concept, egregiously ugly. Now they’ve rectified that with a stately GMC version.
To give GM fans a ground-pounding off-road alternative to the Ford Raptor (and troll the Blue Oval), Corvette tuning legend Ken Lingenfelter and truck tuner Southern Comfort Automotive got together and created a suped-up Silverado called the Reaper. This is the first one we've seen in the wild.
I finally saw the Chevrolet Silverado Reaper beyond the confines of a Photoshop-scape yesterday at the Chicago Auto Show, and learned a few things about it that might make you reconsider writing it off over that wacky face.
DECATUR, Ind. - Lingenfelter Performance Engineering took home this year's GM Design Awards "Best New High-Performance Chevrolet Product," which was presented November 8 to CEO/Owner Ken Lingenfelter during the Specialty Equipment Marketing Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.
Corvette-o-philes know the first-generation Corvette wasn't a muscle car — it was a European-style roadster with Jaguar in its sights. Under the fiberglass hood was an inline six, dubbed "Blue Flame." But in 1955, sales were off. The Corvette needed a transfusion — and it got one.
Watching an engine up on a stand doesn't always count as porn, although Lingenfelter's 358ci LSx flat plane crank race engine with a 76mm Garrett turbo, producing more than 1,000 hp. Watch for it in the Lingenfelter Gen V Camaro SS.
What would you do if you blew the engine of your Ferrari 360 GT during a track day? While most Ferrari owners would probably go for an expensive engine rebuild after the tears subsided, one Californian exotic car owner decided to think outside the box. The 1000 horsepower Chevy powered bastard Ferrari seen here is…
Closely chasing Evolution Performance's eight second Mustang is Lingenfelter Performance's LS9-powered 2010 Camaro. Their six-speed Camaro is consistently running low nine-second quarter miles and, judging by this video, they're well on their way to an eight-second run.
After we saw press photos of the Lingenfelter twin-turbocharged 800HP Specter Werks Corvette GTR, we headed to their Troy, Michigan shop and grabbed some exclusive first photos of the super tuner car as it was packed up for SEMA.
Take the radically restyled Specter Werks Corvette GTR, chuck an 800 HP Lingenfelter twin-turbo 7.0-liter LS7 under the hood and 22lb carbon fiber HRE wheels underneath and you've got one badass 'Vette set for debut at SEMA.
What happens when you match up the displacement freaks at Baldwin-Motion with the turbo- and supercharger-drunk labcoats at Lingenfelter? We're not exactly sure, but apparently you get something like the new Lingenfelter/Motion Big-Block. Tech specs will be released at the SEMA show in a week or so, but we know the…
Corvette Z06 owners looking for ways to spend the spread between their car's dealer-premium price and the sticker of, say, a Ferrari F430 or Porsche 911 Turbo need only call the boys at Lingenfelter. Give the venerable Corvette tuning house 8-12 weeks and $50,000, and they'll turn any Z06 into a twin-turbo, 800hp…
