The fact that the brawny V8 remains tractable and well-mannered is even more impressive.
by EVO (Feb, 2007)
On the fast A-roads it’s much more assured; stable, grippy and devastatingly rapid.

It’s a mighty performance in any context, and substantially quicker than we managed in a standard Z06 (0-60 in 4.1, 0-100 in 8.9).

When do you stop searching for huge bhp numbers and tiny acceleration figures?

Engine

The resulting boost in power sounds almost unfeasible given the relatively simple nature of the upgrade, but Lingenfelter is very well respected and has been working on the enduring Chevy V8 for 25 years.
by EVO (Feb, 2007)
We like the turbo motors because they are so docile when they're not generating any boost, but with the 427, there's no turbo lag before the serious kick throws you back in your seat.
by Car and Driver (Jul, 2001)
The point is well taken, but Lingenfelter bases his new engine not on the old iron big-block but on the Corvette's LS1 aluminum small-block.

Powertrain

The more engine savvy among us might shrug and say, "So what?
by Car and Driver (Jul, 2001)
The extra muscles start to flex almost from tickover (despite an uneven, dragster-like idle, the lumpier cam soon smoothes out), but it’s when extended beyond 5000rpm that the engine starts to feel uncomfortably violent.
by EVO (Feb, 2007)
Add up a lot of labor and new engine internals, and the $22,650 price doesn't seem so obscene.
by Car and Driver (Jul, 2001)

Horsepower

David Yu is now in discussion with Lingenfelter to see if some of the horses drowned somewhere mid-Atlantic.
by EVO (Feb, 2007)
Besides, your life expectancy is probably severely reduced with a 600+bhp Corvette anyway; you’ll be lucky to be around long enough to hear it go pop.
by EVO (Feb, 2007)
As a result, Lingenfelter switched to turbocharging as a way to obtain acceptable power levels (acceptable power in Lingenfelter-speak is 500 or more horses).
by Car and Driver (Jul, 2001)

Handling

Combine a very hard ride with masses of power and the result is that you simply don’t have the confidence to fully unleash the engine.
by EVO (Feb, 2007)
I think I’d invest my £5500 elsewhere, and with track driving in mind the suspension would be a good start.
by EVO (Feb, 2007)
One reason for the 427's strong numbers is the smooth way it doles out the power without the tires breaking loose.
