VIDEO of ETP 215 / StreetSweeper and peripherals 511RWHP (PICS & DATA)

VIDEO ARE BELOW, just before the pics


Long story that I will try to make short.

We arrived in USA middle of 2002 for a two years contract job and we are presently with my wife in the process of becoming USA Citizen and running our own business since October 2005.

When the time came in 2002 to decide what second car to buy (the company that was employing us was providing a Suburban) the choice went on an American Muscle Car, radically opposite of the ones we had in Europe: go for the Corvette ZO6 (auto was so far away from our culture…).
Driving the first 200 miles in a row surprised us a lot, we had some apriority based on what we were hearing on those cars from Europe, but everything was really nice, engine, gear-box, brakes, handling, noise level, as well as interior and accessories was not that bad for that level of price compare to a German sport car, plus the look was amazing. After a little more driving I was convinced that I could burn almost all the cars we could find in Europe on a night trip between Nice (French Riviera) and Milan (Italy).

Then I discovered that I could easily modified the car, mainly everything from top to bottom and still be able to drive it on the road without going through any kind of homologation process.
After some soft modifications on the brakes and the suspension (more to my liking) I decided to look around for an engine upgrade. It took some time before ordering all the components of my combo, I met and spoke with a lot of persons, exchanged also a lot of emails with others, everyone was really great providing tons of information and I could make my own opinion.
One Magic number (for me) is the 100 WHP by Liter NA, which is for a car able to be driven on the road rare or very expensive, but mostly not done on “big cube engines” in Europe, and it seemed that some shops and tuners were close of it, without adding some crazy electronic systems or high technology (dynamic or sophisticated material).

My decision was made and Ed Curtis became the provider of the main parts but was also assigned (by me) as the bandmaster of my final product.
After speaking with Ed of the different possible options, the components listed below will be finally assembled by the end of next week by J&J Performance in Fort Myers (FL).
I don’t know yet what kind of power the engine is going to produce, but that seems to be the closest combo that is going to fit my needs.

The idle completely stabe at 900rpm :

Thank you for the kind words,

The catback will be the Titanium OEM from the ZO6, does not seem to bother anything in term of power and tuning.

Greeny5005 set-up is definitively very close, will the details added bring something to the recipe?

I will tell if I am really thrilled when I will get back in the car again, just beeing realistic it is possible, just wait and see...

I have updated my first post simply because I initially forgot to mention the ARP Head Bolts highly recommended by Ed on this set-up.

The pic is in 6th position...

Hi HAMMR-TYME,

When my daughter was still in age to believe in Santa (long time ago), it never came to my mind to let her know "how much for her presents", she was getting what she was earning, that is the magic of Christmas.

Seriously I didn't choose the cheapest way to build my combo, I was lucky to not be tightened by the prices of the components when I decided the project.
I was focus on quality, efficiency, reliability and a long term use with the possibility to upgrade the package without having to buy again 60% of the peripherals if for any reason I wanted to go a step further.

I had a lot of options from different providers, I could certainly have the complete engine modified for some $% less, but it had been easy also to follow some guys and build something similar for a lot more than the actual cost.
I want to mention that Ed never pushed me in any direction, he just let me the choice and we could agree after having debated on the advantage of this option or of another one.

On the top of that, both Tony Mamo and Ed Curtis are professionals that always answered all my questions, always retuned all my emails and always took time on the phone to explained in details the plus and minus of every parts they could supply me, and it is a privilege that I have used (and abused...sorry...).

Most of the prices of my combo are listed on Ed Curtis website:
http://www.flowtechinduction.com/
and if you want more informations just send him an email, I'm convinced you will get an answer.

About beeing a good boy, I will confirm that after having the car off the dyno and driven around.

On the technical side, let me report some measurements from Saturday:

Piston out of the hole :
- 0.04

Piston to Valve Clearence :

- Intake = 0.110
- Exhaust = 0.130


Knowing the head chamber volume is 60cc and the Cometic head gasket is 0.040 thickness and also that the StreetSweeper is a camshaft with some substantial duration numbers , THOSE ARE IMPRESSIVE CLEARENCE NUMBERS...

I hope to be sorry as well...

The clutch is in since some miles know and with my previous power (425RWHP/404 RWTQ) was working fine with street tyres.

Referring to Spec website data, the Spec II is supposed to handle 450 RWTQ and the Spec II Plus 527 RWTQ.

I don't expect my torque to be that high, BUT i would like...

We will see if the clutch can resist as it is advertised on the builder website.

We are planned to start the dyno session tomorrow, will let you know...

All of this is great info to see how well this combo works but why post this on a GTO forum to begin with? You're doing this in a Z06 so I don't get it!

Hi DA GOAT,

I appreciate your comments.

Two reasons why I posted first on this board:
- If I didn't misunderstood the GTO until 2004 had a very similar engine than the ZO6 (untill 2004), LS6 if I am right, then it is something to share with people using this block.

- The decision to build this combo was for the most influenced by all the info I collected on this board, and there is nothing really revolutionnary on what I went with, some of you are already running a set-up very close.

For sure I will make the Corvette community aware of the results and will add a link to this thread for the one that wants to see the pictures of the different parts.
For the moment it is easier for me to answer or questioned on one board for one thread (I am maybe lazy) and compare what I have with persons that have already experienced this kind of combo...

Hope that make sense.
Christian

J&J are good guys. I remember their cars and a few of them at the local street races years ago in Buccingham. Long before the Fast and Furius crap came around and created all the drama and new laws.

They always had good running cars, maybe not as much as Lethal but made a good showing. Funny the number of great shops in a little town, J&J, Lethal Injections, All Stock, Corvette Connection to name a few of the well knows.

I think SEG factor is going to be very high in that light of a car.

Any pics of the FAST port work?

Also my number guess is 480rwhp and 440rwtq.

Jeff

Jeff thanks for the kind words.
I guess you haven't been around in the past couple years. Much has changed. Don't think I am bragging just figured I would give you a update.
Lethal and Corvette connection are now closed.
Brian and Chris (Creep) were the 2 main guys At lethal and Brian recked a car at the track hurting himself pretty badly (is 100% okay now) and never went back to working on cars. He now sells houses. Chris stayed at the shop trying to do the cars himself, but couldn't keep up all alone. He now is our number 2 guy at J&J. And one of the best #2 around.
So basicially Lethal and J&J kinda came together.
Justin has increased his skill 200-300 percent and is the smartest guy I have been around when it comes to cars.
We got the old supercharged Mustang (pizza Mike) running very well. Now a twin turbo car that runs drag radial stock suspension. Still tweeking, but last visit earned him a 5.02@150MPH in the 1/8, and a 7.60@188 in the 1/4. C ar has more in it but we need to change the computer as it only makes 25PSI right now, and 35 is where we need to be. We now have 7 current guys that have ran a 5.xx in the 1/8 all on drag radials and in stock suspension form. Mike Freeman (pillow head) has his car going back together and he will more then likely be in the bottom 5's high 4's with his car. We have been playing with GM stuff forever as well, and have done a ton of LS1 cars. Vette's/GTO's/F bodys etc.
Fun cars that pick up gobs of power with out F/I.
Now it looks like we might start exploring the Dodge market, but that would only be is we could find some more good hands. Right now we are to busy as it is.
Maybe one day if your in the area you can swing by and buy us lunch. LOL J/K man.
