Thank you Morris, of Malone Racing, for choosing D3 Performance Engineering for your ZR1 Corvette build. His ZR1 was shipped to us with an LSX engine upgrade along with a complete nitrous plate system for which he was looking to remove and add some more power without having to refill nitrous bottles all the time. The decision was quickly made to build a compound boost setup to decrease spool up times with the factory supercharger while adding the top end power from the turbo. Our fab department engineered and fabricated a rear mount system using a Precision ProMod 88 billet turbocharger, placing the turbo in the rear of the vehicle but keeping centered to evenly distribute weight in the rear. Boost control was done with a pair of Tial wastegates with matching Tial blow off valves in the front. All hot side was handcrafted out of aircraft grade stainless steel while all the cold side from high grade aluminum.
This turbo system is completely designed with no additional intercooler system aside from the factory bricks, modified by D3PE, and a D3PE ZR1 HX System with an added ice tank used for long pulls during top speed events. We also upgraded the engine cooling system by adding our direct bolt on PWM Dual Spal Fan Shroud kit.
We upgraded the fuel system to a Fore Innovations Level 4, E85 compliant, triple Ti 267 pump setup matched with Injector Dynamics 2000cc injectors to handle the new horsepower while running Ignite E98. We also upgraded the clutch to a RPS quad carbon with Tilton adjustable slave and Tick adjustable master.
To complete the build, we added a D3PE ZR1 ProEFI package to help protect the engine as well as put the power to the ground. The standard package was installed along with a back pressure sensor (used to actively make fueling changes based on back pressure), flex fuel sensor, I-boost for on the fly map selecting, and boost control. The package also comes standard with traction control, launch control, and rolling antilag.
On our dyno this setup made 1425whp and 1198wtq at 34 psi making it the highest horsepower ZR1 in the world!
Keep an eye out for Malone Racing at all of the half mile events!
