Vette from a dig

2012 SRT8 vs 2010 (I think) Vette.

My buddy has a Vette with some bolt on stuff and tune but nothing internal, but real quick. He was shocked to say the least. The Vette sounds sick as it is going by, you got to admire that. http://vaughtstudio.com/SRT8vsVette.MOV

i saw bout 73 on the gauge before slowing down... hell a few bolt ons on the jeep and its a little closer race! The vette still wins, but not bad for a 5200lb suv! The vette does sound good tho!

He went by me at about 65 mph. That was our second run. The first one, he never got around because he panicked when I jumped him at the line and spun all the way through 1st and 2nd. He is a good driver and kept it in check on the second pass. We did one more with the same result as the second. Understand that his car runs high 11's frequently so I assumed it was going to be bad for me. Was real happy with the 0-60 though and if you can get them flustered off the line, bye bye.

When I grow up, I want my car to sound like his. And, BTW, he is a cop of all things. LOL

Would like to do tune, headers and exhaust maybe a cam? Probably still gonna take more than that to run that vette down though. Still even in stock form, a really fun grocery getter.

thats the blessing/curse about our rigs...beat pretty much anything on the road from the dig, then as you get to 1/8 mile then fast cars will walk all over us. But you expect that from any 5000lb suv. No one wants to race me from dig, they all want to race from a roll lol

It would take a hell of a lot more than a tune to run down that Vette, or any Vette for that matter. But tunes should be ready by 2015.

Lingenfelter doesnt do "just bolt ons" h&c is minimum. Blower is next as far as "bolt ins" go.

Well that my be the case but they do sell several bolt ons for his car. LPE CAI, LPE programming, Headers, Exhaust, Thermostat and Flywheel. I realize some of those are not LPE brand products but he purchased those items from LPE. That is the info that I got from my friend anyway, but maybe he is wrong about what he bought and who he bought it from?

Buying parts from Lingenfelter doesn't make it a Lingenfelter Corvette. A Lingenfelter Corvette has a package that is installed and tuned is at Lingenfelter. Alot of people have tried to pass off bogus cars as Lingenfelter built cars just because they bought some parts from them. That's why you can't buy Lingenfelter badges. They only come on cars that are built by them. A true Lingenfelter built car has a higher retail value then a standard Corvette and that's usually why guys try to pass them off as Lingenfelter built cars.

Im not trying to be a dick. Its just a little misleading since there is a level of performance that is expected from a Lingenfelter built car. I don't say I have an Edelbrock 68 Coronet because I have an Edelbrock Carb on it. Or a Foose car because I bought his wheels. Its a 68 Coronet with mods.

Well I am not trying to be a douche misleading people, just passing along info that I was given. He told me it had some bolt on stuff (as I said in my first post) on it and it does (CAI, programming and fly wheel from LPE) along with other bolt on stuff, AR headers and corsa exhaust. If you want to get a hard on about it, go for it.

For the rest of you, please do not take offense, I apologize if I mislead you.

Nice vid, it always feels good to get the jump on a nice Vette, even if it only lasts for a little while.

Wonder how you would know so much about them Lingenfelter cars. :rolleyes:

You wouldn't happen to know Darrin S. would you Joel? He has a Yellow C5 with their base turbo package on it from the time. Owns the go-kart place. Speaking of Lingenfelter what do you know about their Camaro packages, seeing alot of them around town. Looking forward to spanking a few with the new motor, well hopefully.
