Chevrolet tuning information with articles and pictures about modified Chevrolet cars for Chevrolet tuning enthusiasts.
Rarely do you come across something so custom built, that makes you wonder how it was even accomplished. Take this Chevy truck for example that is now powered by a Ford diesel engine with a new turbo setup. These rat rods never get old and when you shoot soot out of the exhausts, it just makes it that much sweeter. Soot life, as many die hard truckers call it, has been gaining popularity over the past few years with jacked up trucks and diesel engines. You have to see for yourself in the video below.
If you can’t wait for the new Corvette Z06 with the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 producing 625 horsepower, then head over to Callaway for their S610 tuning package. Not to be mistaken with the golf company, Callaway Cars have taken the 2014 Corvette Stingray and given it a similar appearance and power output to that of the Z06. With the addition of a new supercharger and high performance exhaust system, the standard Corvette now puts down 610 HP and 556 lb-ft of torque. A hefty increase from the factory 455 horses and 460 lb-ft of torque.
Here is the all new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray that has received a nice tuning package from the guys at Hennessey Performance. Even though the brand new sports car offers a powerful V8 putting down 455 horsepower and sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds, tuners always want more. Pairing up one of the most famous American sports cars with one of the top American tuning firms, you are sure to have a winner. Hennessey has given the Corvette C7 owners several options, five different packages to be exact, fitting the tastes of all car lovers worldwide.
The tuners at Schwabenfolia have recently put Lambo doors on a Chevrolet Camaro SS for the upcoming New York Auto Show. We’re not quite sure if this is a good look for the once tough muscle car now trying to imitate an exotic. However, there are always people out there who will try it whether it looks good or not. At least we can say the tuning company added some power under the hood with a Magnuson TSV 2300 supercharger.
With the sixth generation of the Chevrolet Corvette coming to an end, D2FORGED wheels had to hook it up with a new set rims. Installing new wheels is the most common way to tune or customize your car these days, and when you spend the extra cash on a name brand like D2FORGED, you will surely be pleased with the results. Even more so when you factor in the carbon fiber package found on this Chevy Corvette Z06.
Tampa-based tuning company 813 Customs has sent us these pictures of their latest Chevy Camaro SS Convertible which we are going to call the King of Bling. Behind all this chrome is a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SS with the factory 6.2-liter V8 engine. The exterior has been wrapped with a chrome car wrap while the interior received a red chrome paint for the custom boxes holding multiple speakers and subwoofers. Check out the video and more pictures of all the work below. Fitting 32′s on a Chevy Camaro SS isn’t easy.
The wheel specialists from D2Forged have hooked up this Chevrolet Corvette with a new set of their MB1 rims. Wrapped in high performance tires, the wheels measure 20×10 up front while extra wide 20×13-inch rims were installed at the rear. They feature a matte black face with titanium flange stripe, along with hand painted center caps holding the D2 emblem. The staggered style of rims have been popular choices this year when tuning cars, however we’re surprised this MB1 set doesn’t have a deep dish or chrome. Most tuned Corvettes look great with a deep lip for the rear wheels, especially if it’s going to be 13 inches wide.
The custom tuners from Chrome & Carbon in Dubai have sent us these images of their Chevy Camaro widebody kit called the Guyver. Why is it called the Guyver? The name is from an older Japanese anime series where the characters transformed into robotic warriors. This sports car definitely looks like it could have been in the movie Transformers while the widebody kit is priced at 18,000 USD or 13,500 EURO and will hold plenty of carbon fiber as expected from a company named Chrome and Carbon.
Here’s an interesting name, the Yellow Steam Hammer package has been recently released by German tuners O.CT Tuning for the Chevrolet Camaro SS. Obviously they did not think the 6.2-liter V8 producing 426 HP and 420 lb-ft of torque was enough. These guys decided to bolt on a new supercharger to give it some boost, resulting in a new output of 621 horsepower or 630 PS, while the max torque was recorded at 538 lb-ft or 730 Nm.
We always love unique tuning projects and cars like this Acura Integra will surely impress those who witness it first hand. This car was recently listed on eBay where it pulled a $19,000 bid with the 6.5-liter Chevy big block V8 sticking out of the engine bay. The GM powerplant is so large you can’t even fit a hood on the Acura Integra unless you did some extreme modifications to it. We’re just wondering how the driver can possibly see out the front of the Acura Integra after watching the video and pictures below.
We all know a Ferrari 458 Italia supercar is fast, but how does the notorious Prancing Horse match up to some of the competition that is less than half the price. We have a video here from drag times, recording a stock Ferrari 458 Italia racing an Audi RS6 with 750 horsepower, an AMS tuned Nissan GTR-R with 600 HP, and a Lingenfelter Corvette ZR1 carrying 750 horsepower. These three sports cars race the Ferrari 458 on a 1 mile run, so hit the jump to see how it all went down!
The tuners at Lingenfelter have released two new tuning kits for the Chevrolet Camaro sports car. It starts out with the Signature Series 1 which consists of several new aero parts, a new hood, revised grille, front spoiler, side skirts, and trunk spoiler round out the package. The styling upgrades continue inside the Chevy Camaro with new embroidery for the seats, aluminum pedals, and a number plaque to note its rarity. Performance modifications are modest, but do feature a sport suspnesion kit and Magnaflow high performance exhaust.
