Our first build is a 2012 ZR1 , with a little kit We like to call the 710+ , thats an LPE 710 with some Dasilva Motorsports custom touches .

A set of ARH 1 7/8 headers and we are making power people :coolgleam:

Here are the headers :thumbs:, x-pipe & high flow cats being mocked up . We will then tig weld it all up for no leaks :D





Attention to detail is what were all about .

Should have this ZR1 on the dyno tomorrow :canada:

Our second ZR1 is a 2010 , again our 710+ kit along with the AHR header package and a nice cam to kick it up a notch . An LG Motorsports ZR1 rad will help keep the temps in check .
We will start on this Z next week . Then pick up his Carbon edition ZO6 for a nice round of heads & Cam in the Dasilva Motorsports style , then oh ya this client has some toys and Dasilva Motorsports will be sending all 3 cars to the next level .. So for the 3 car , well how about a 2007 Dodge Charger Superbee ..... can you say Maggie & AHR Headers :rofl:
 
Too much project for 2014 but as I stated in an other tread, I would like to do this for 2015. I don't want to do head and cam but 710 kit, headers, maybe porting the snout, tbi and upper part of blower and probably upgrading cooling, the baby's run pretty hot. I will try to get a day off during the summer and go visit the shop when other forum members meet

Sounds good Stephane :D

Here is some progress from today :

Headers installed and all connections except 2 have now been tig welded .
Dave our master tech has some real skills :D



Beautiful looking system .
In the back ground is our 2010 ZR1 that is coming up next




The charger has been removed for installation of the 710+ kit









ZR1 # 2 looking very nice after a bath , clean cars won't scratch when being worked on . Dust and dirt even with covers can scratch the paint . This is why we first wash a car before working on it .





Should be complete today and roll'n out the HP tomorrow :canada:
 
Wow, these weldings look like there where made by a machine. The super charger top is of, do you drill holes in the wiper box to access the rear bolts?

:swear: Washing the car before is a great insurance policy, only the pros think about these small but so important details.

We drill no holes my friend , like I said Dave my head tech is very talented :canada:
 
great thread - please keep the updates coming

also looking forward to reading about the work on the Z06 Carbon.
 
These are sweet builds. Can't deny the potential in the C6 ZR1's. Total favourite of mine. Cyber grey is a fantastic colour!

Dropped in some fresh 91 octane and finished up the tune portion :

652 RWHP & 648 RWTQ @17psi -This ZR1 is a beast :canadaflag:



We are installing a Katech inter-cooler tomorrow and hope to have the cold air intake finished up by the end of the week :D
 
Yup.

Thanks for posting. I feel so inadequate now with me the wimpy HP my C6 is putting out......
