Screened over two episodes on the SPEED channel, the build featured Marine Sgt. John Hayes’ Dream Corvette. John was a pivotal part of this project and his story is well worth reading – check it out here.
The hosts of Two Guys Garage called on numerous automotive aftermarket companies to help them transform the 2009 Corvette a dream machine. Rick Squires and his son Mitch from STS Turbo put their hands up for the turbocharging duties and worked alongside Kevin Byrd and Willie B installing the twin turbo kit on the Corvette.
Hellion’s Eliminator twin turbo kit for the Coyote 5.0 V8 includes two 62mm ball-bearing turbochargers, stainless steel 4-to-1 style headers, and, fitted to a stock motor it yields in excess of 600hp at the wheels.
The car shown in this video however, is no ordinary Mustang. Featuring a Ford Racing Aluminator engine, equipped with Turbosmart Comp-Gate 40 external wastegates, Race Port BOVs and running with 23.9psi boost, this package puts down 1,249hp at the wheels!
