Default Need Corvette Performance Shop

I bought my 2008 ZO6 new and have enjoyed every minute of ownership. I now have 86.000 miles on it.

The one thing I would change is the sound. I miss the sound my old C3 made with the mechanical cam (stock 1970 LT-1 cam) and Flowmaster exhaust. People knew when I started it up and it idled with a definite lope.

I'm considering having a new cam installed in my C6 along with some head and exhaust work. I'm not really looking for a lot more horsepower and torque but rather more of that old powerful sound you hear a street rod make when it arrives at a show. I don't track the car, it is used as a daily driver so I don't want the driveability to suffer a lot.

If I were in the mid-west I'd take it to Katech but since I live just outside of Tampa I'd like to find someone local that is experienced in this kind of performance work.

Does anyone on this Forum have someone they would recommend ?

I've heard nothing but good about these folks.

I briefly saw/heard a CTS V like mine that had a performance cam in it and, yes, I longed for the old school performance motors. Mine is plenty powerful, but the old cammed up motors puts a smile on my face!

Yeah, give Greg at AntiVenom a call. That will likely be your best bet locally.

But bear in mind, the more lope you have in the camshaft the more driveability at low speed might suffer as a result. Kind of the nature of the beast with radical camshafts.
