This is it. Thanks to an anonymous tipster we have what appear to be the very first and clearest shots yet procured of the 2009 LS9 6.2-liter V8 engine powering the 2009 Corvette ZR1 -- something we weren't expecting to see until the Detroit Auto Show in January. But, since information yearns to be free -- and whoa, nelly, do these shots show off some serious information on what will be the most serious piece of weaponry in the General's quiver come next year -- here they are and here's what we know. Essentially what you're looking at is what appears to be a standard twin-screw-type supercharger mounted below a highly efficient air-to-water intercooler system. Now, we can't speculate if it's tied into the engine system or if it has an independent radiator system -- but we feel pretty confident all of this is a one-off, which means the General's running the show on every single horsepower above and beyond the stock horse output from the 6.2-liter V8 it all sits atop. Gearheads, your engine pr0n awaits in the photo gallery below. While you check that out we're going to go and hide from GM's shock troopers. Hey, does anyone know the number for the witness protection program?

We have camber locks for C4 cars. VMAX Camber Lock corrects front upper cross member flexing which changes front camber during corning. When a C4 corvette is corning, leverage is applied at great force to the upper front A Arm attachment points which causes flexing. The Camber lock attaches to these vulnerable points on the cross member and locks these areas from flexing. These are not wimpy and not heavy, made in the USA. Full chrome moly construction makes this a great addition to your C4, weighs just 5lbs. Our guarantee is whether racing or driving on the street the VMAX Camber Lock will stiffen your ride.
I talked with Pete today and he had mentioned that we will be meeting with Bobby Fischer during the P.R.I. show in two weeks about getting our name on his car for 08. From what I hear he has given everyone a good run for the money this last season and has big plans for the 2008 season starting with road Atlanta. Pete and I are hoping to get get up to that event.
Bobby Fischer’s naturally aspirated 2005 Cadillac CTS-V has had many modifications done to his car. To start off,the intake consists of a Lingenfelter cold air system, F.A.S.T. intake manifold, and 2.055” intake valves. Com Tech provided the 90mm throttle body and fuel rails. The full exhaust system starts off with Billy Boat long tube headers which have 1 ¾ “primary tubes which flow into a 3” collector. The rest of the system has Random Tech catalytic converters, Billy Boat 3” exhaust,x-pipe and resonators. The mufflers are on the rear of the car only. The exhaust valves are 1.6”. Now, back to the motor itself. The injectors,coil-packs, and wires are factory. The heads are ported and were changed from 15⁰ to 14⁰ . The heads were re-worked by CNC Cylinder Heads. The camshaft is a Comp Cam. The specifications on this are exhaust/intake duration 232/236 @ .050”respectively. The exhaust/ intake lift is .595/.601 respectively. The lobe center is 114, 4⁰. The compression ratio is approximately 11.3 with .041”Cometic head gaskets. The fuel this vehicle uses is 93 octane pump gas,preferably from BP. All the tuning was done by Finish Line Performance in Naperville, IL. The installation of the parts was done by Creative Engineering in Beloit, WI. A special thank you goes to VMAX MOTORSPORTS for referring and doing the F.A.S.T intake, all the Com Tech parts, and the Comp Cams. VMAX has made this car extremely competitive from the short, 1.95 mi track at Blackhawk Farms Raceway to the legendary 4.05 mi track of Road America.

We had a great time at the ultimate corvette party. We would like to thank our friends at World products, random technologies, van steel and comp cams for all the support, you helped in making this a great show. Pete was fielding all kinds of questions about our products and packages we offer and we hope to hear back from some of you who we made contact with. Pete and I are both new to offering suspension and brake kits but with the help from Paul Lesinski we are getting up to speed on offering some kits for different applications, we had a great display of shocks and composite springs in our booth. The magnet in our booth seemed to be the warhawk 7 liter aluminum block and cylinder head that we placed out front,that is one great package for someone looking to take on all comers. Let us know what you thought about our booth we are here for our customers and would like to know how to better serve you.
