We previously had this car in for tuning, and the owner decided to come back for some pretty big changes! We swapped out the current cam with our own custom cam, which was a 221/235 on a 114+0 LSA. We also refreshed the top end with new valvesprings, and installed a new Melling 10296 oil pump while we had it all apart. On top of that, we added an A&A Supercharger kit with a Vortec unit, with a set of 1000cc Fuel Injector Connection injectors to supply enough fuel. The car hit the dyno, finishing up at 622 rwhp & 595 ft/lbs tq. We loved the results, the new added power, and better sound!
This bright yellow corvette came in for a complete transformation. We spec’d and installed a custom cam, specifically to work well with the twin turbo kit the customer had brought in. We also added a full cam install kit and a new Melling 10296 oil pump while we were there. We spruced up the fuel system and also added a Monster Triple S Organic clutch to make sure that we would be able to support the newfound power. The car did not disappoint on the dyno….laying down an impressive 627 rwhp & 606 ft/lbs tq! With a new gnarly idle it really turns heads now!
“Great experience from start to finish. I work in the automotive industry and was blown away by the excellent communication and customer service. My car spent several weeks with them getting a twin turbo kit, fuel system, clutch and PCM custom cam. I can’t say enough about the tune, the drivability is absolutely incredible. The wait was a few months to get it into their shop, but honestly after seeing the quality of work I’m surprised it wasn’t longer. A+ Company and employees.”
When this corvette came to us with a previously installed Edelbrock supercharger, we knew we would have a great base to start with – and room to improve! This pristine show car was looking to make more power and also change the idle sound to turn more heads at shows. We decided on our popular LS3 cam – the Phoenix – knowing that the driveability would still remain good. We reached out to Advanced Induction to do a 280cc porting & polishing package on the heads. Our modifications paid off – we picked up 162 rwhp & 206 ft/lbs of torque, ending up at 662 rwhp & 672 ft/lbs tq. Definitely rounded out this lovely build!
“Thank Nathan (technician) for the TLC and thoughtfulness. Please tell him how much I appreciate his efforts. There seems to be more room in the bay than before. Everything is running perfectly! It is rare these days to find someone like you and the PCM family. We are friends for life. The car is phenomenal and I saw the U-tube posting. I am famous!!”
This sharp 1999 Corvette unfortunately spun a rod bearing, so we sent off the shortblock to Harrell Engine & Dyno for a mild rebuild. When it came back we installed our Firefighter camshaft, our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Kit, and a Melling 10296 along with a set of Kooks Headers. Nothing like getting to fall in love with your car all over again with added power and better sound.
Gotta love these awesome LT-4’s…they respond very well to just a few mods! We took this one in at 574 rwhp & 550 ft/lbs (already killer right out of the box). With a cold air intake, Kooks Headers and Exhaust and a Redline Motorsports lower overdrive kit, we picked up 87 rwhp & 93 ft lbs of torque, ending up at 634 rwhp & 643 ft/lbs of tq!
When 557rwhp isn’t enough…you upgrade to an A&A Corvette Performance supercharger kit!! We previously did a naturally aspirated build on this yellow beast (check it out HERE), and now it came back for more. Topping it off with an A&A supercharger kit using a Vortec head unit, this go round we finished up at 729 rwhp & 584 ft/lbs tq! Good luck getting traction with that!
“While the drive to work was like 10 minutes but I smiled all the way. I enjoyed the pickup experience at the shop. The tech you had on the car gathered my parts and chatted a little bit. He took the time to go over the parts and car with me. Told me about maintenance, and the work to make it a get in and go setup. Nice guy and customer experience.”
This customer was bit hard by the power bug. After his first go-round with us – the install of an A&A Supercharger kit (first install blog HERE), he decided to come back for more! This time around, he went even bigger, adding ported and polished heads from Advanced Induction, a custom blower cam by Alvin at PCM of NC, and Kooks headers in 1 7/8″ as well. We also installed our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Kit and a Melling 10296 to back up the new cam. Previously with the blower, the car made 567rwhp and 512 ft/lbs tq. The new package really awakened the beast all over again – laying down killer numbers at 710rwhp & 647ft/lbs tq! Now with the choppy cam it really turns heads too!
We had previously tuned this track car with his old set up, a TSP 408ci with an MS3 cam. Unfortunately one of the valvesprings broke, wreaking havoc on the block. We replaced it with another 408ci, however on this go-round we added our own custom cam, picking up 30hp over the MS3. We also installed our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Kit to prevent the same thing happening again, and a Melling 10296. The final numbers were very stout, at 516 rwhp & 470 ft/lbs!
After finding out about us through our website, this customer reached out via email to create a package for his 2008 LS3 manual corvette. It was time to make it faster and more aggressive sounding! We decided to get it breathing better first, through a Halltech Intake and a set of Kooks long tube headers.
For the cam, we decided on our recently developed Phoenix. This is a larger version of our 545 camshaft, making a bit more power and also sounding off more as well! Driveability still remains excellent, and it is a nice grind for any LS as it feels very powerful in the mid and upper RPM range!
To go along with the cam, we beefed up the valvetrain also, using our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Package. Featuring Brian Tooley Platinum Springs and Brian Tooley Pushrods, this package also includes gaskets and a new timing chain as well! We replaced the oil pump with a Melling 10296, and also threw in a COMP trunion upgrade for extra rocker strength!
This corvette originally baselined at 391 rwhp & 392 ft/lbs torque. After the modifications, we ended up at 472 rwhp & 428 ft/lbs, for a gain of 81 rwhp!
“I don’t know where to start…the car literally sounds amazing. Better than I had hoped for. Your customer service exceeded all expectations with quality responses and quick prompt return emails. The work put in is flawless and I say that with pride considering how bad I hate for someone else to work on my car. The car feels incredible through then entire RPM range. I can’t describe enough how the sound of this car has completely changed the way I look at a Corvette. That’s saying a lot considering just that name alone rings bells. I want to thank each and every employee at PCM for taking the time dedicated to a project like this and turning it into a reality. I will definitely be back for future work. You’ve gained a loyal customer and I hope to get you plenty more in return for the smiles I get by starting my car. Honestly I hope you guys know, sometimes you aren’t just working on a car, you’re working on a dream for someone. Again I appreciate everything and I hope you can share this gratitude with everyone at the shop! See you soon! “
