600 HP, where to get it

Within 3 years, my C6 will be off warranty with low mileage. At that time, I might like to take the car to a professional shop and get a HP increase. It's a case of bang-for-the-buck, competence and reliablility. In Canada, where does one go to get this sort of thing done and what sort of money would it take?

600hp

I'm getting a 427 C5R block with 530rwhp for my 2000 coupe built at Tony's Corvette Shop in Gaithersburg, Md. (301) 987-0565. They are one of the best shops in the east coast. They have really ramped up their capabilities for the newer cars. They are not the cheapest but their product is fantastic and will stand behind it. Of course with 600hp comes a $7-10k brake job as well as, reinforcing the whole drive train. Not to mention suspension changes (not too much in parts but a whole lot of labor). For my car we ended up going with the C5R engine, reinforced MN12, Exidy double plated clutch, 3.90 reinforced rear. To get all of this to run properly and stay cool we added an oil cooler/larger radiator, tranny/trans cooler and steering cooler. Now we have a bullet proof drive train that needs to stop and do it repeatedly so we went with Red Devil Ceramic/Titanium brake package (used in Nextel Cup Cars). It weighs 33lbs less than the stock system; a positive to this system is that it is a 6/4 calliper system and we did not have to change wheels becasue the rotors are the size of the stock ones because. They do not need to be bigger because of the greater friction and heat dissipation of the rotor/caliper combo (supposedly 60-0 distances are in the 90-80 foot range!!). We also needed to add steel brake lines as well as front (DRM vents) and rear venting (Z06 Ducts). So now the car can accelerate and decelerate but can it handle. We changed the springs (Vette Brakes) and dampers (Billstein) as well as the sway bars (Hotchkiss). We also needed heavy duty bushings (to poly), links and toe/tie ends so they would not melt with the heat. We also added a bump steer kit to deal with the stiffer suspension. In order to stiffen the car more we changed the tunnel plate and added a rear chasis stiffener (looks like a half roll cage for the rear). I also added a G2 front and rear spoiler for a bit more downforce as well as a DuMans multi port hood to let the car breathe. We did the C5R lights just for looks and so I don't have to raise the lights at the track. All in all it is going to cost as much as a new vette but the car is going to be at Ferrari Enzo performance levels. Just beware 600+ hp is no good unless you do the whole thing and doing that is very expensive albeit extremely rewarding.
