C6 Z06 Corvette - Twin Intercooled - Twin Turbo


Since the first release of the Corvette, Chevrolet ignited the passion of performance enthusiasts who desired high performance, sharp handling and killer looks. The C6 Z06 has now taken the Corvette legend to new heights and has produced what is arguably the greatest 'Vette yet.

Now, the perfect partnership has been formed to take the Z06 to a performance level that will have thoroughbred supercars running scared. Drawing on 30 years of turbocharging, supercharging, intercooling and engine management system design and production knowledge, APS has created the ultimate High Output System for the Corvette's 7.0L LS7 engine.

Drawing on the man-years of APS engineering and testing efforts for the market leading APS C6, C5 and GTO Twin Turbo systems, APS raised the bar further still with the APS Twin Intercooled Twin Turbo System for the Z06.

The APS Intercooled Twin Turbo System for the C6 Z06 Corvette is by far the most comprehensive High Output System ever produced for this highly desirable performance vehicle.

Lift the hood and the engine bay looks neat and purposeful - a quantum leap over any turbocharger or supercharger systems available today - a signature of APS workmanship.

But great looks don't just stop there. At the business end under the engine bay is where all the action is.

A straight forward bolt on totally engineered system that utilizes the latest in liquid cooled true ball bearing turbocharger technology. Working in harmony, both GT3582R true ball bearing turbochargers deliver ballistic power with bullet proof turbocharger reliability - and with custom APS end housings, that ballistic power is delivered with extreme efficiency and in a super compact package that is ideally suited to the dynamics of the vehicle.

Each liquid cooled turbocharger is directly coupled to the custom APS High Energy exhaust manifolds, cast in super tough high silicon/moly Iron for maximum durability and precision NC machined for leak free exhaust operation.

High engine bay temperatures have always been the Achilles heel of forced induction engine performance. With each turbocharger tucked up under the chassis, heat is channelled away from the engine compartment for high engine durability and consistently high engine performance. With the APS Twin Turbo configuration, under bonnet air temperatures are a fraction of traditional turbocharger designs. In fact, for even greater peace of mind, the extreme duty APS engine oil cooling system included with the APS Intercooled Twin Turbo system adds yet another level of engine reliability.

Let's face it, nobody likes to wait for extended cool down periods, when you can simply turn around and line up for another screaming pass down the quarter mile track.

Two huge 44mm TIAL external wastegates deliver enhanced boost pressure stability under extremely high boost pressure conditions in addition to a great degree of boost pressure flexibility.

For example, with a simple change of the wastegate spring specification, a variety of boost pressures can be set - from 5 psi all the way through to over 20 psi.

A pair of huge, highly advanced, bar and plate intercoolers, deliver chilled air with a target pressure drop of less than 1.0 psi with intercooler outlet temperature less than 15°F over ambient, at any vehicle speed over 50mph. Truly outstanding results at such a huge horsepower level - and just like the APS turbochargers, the APS intercoolers have massive additional headroom available.

Huge horsepower demands huge exhaust gas flow - and this is an area that APS Engineering has paid particular close attention - not only to the complex physical performance of the exhaust, but also precisely tuning the sound quality to the dynamics of the vehicle. The result is a superb mandrel formed and TIG welded 304 grade stainless steel twin 3" exhaust system that delivers a symphony of turbocharged sound and crisp turbocharger response - at any RPM.

The fuel system is a critical part of any forced induction solution particularly at the high performance levels of the APS Intercooled Twin Turbo system for the C6 Z06 Corvette. Included in each APS Z06 TT system is a comprehensive APS Extreme Performance fuel system that employs twin in-tank fuel pumps to deliver a huge volume of fuel through highly robust Teflon lined stainless steel braided fuel lines to the APS billet alloy fuel rails. Best of all, the APS fuel system operates at rock steady constant differential fuel pressure that is balanced and boost referenced for the ultimate in fuel system performance.

Huge Horsepower and Mountains of Torque

  • Twin 600 HP GT3582R true ball bearing liquid cooled turbochargers for bulletproof boost
  • Custom APS Turbocharger end housings for extreme efficiency and in a super compact package
  • Twin huge 44mm TIAL external wastegates for rock-steady boost pressure
  • Extreme Performance Twin Pump, Full Return, Constant Differential Pressure Fuel System for Ultra High horsepower at high boost pressures
  • Teflon lined stainless steel braided fuel lines for high fuel flow and added protection
  • Mandrel formed and TIG welded 304 grade stainless steel twin 3" exhaust system for huge horsepower and a symphony of turbocharged sound
  • Extreme Duty APS engine oil cooler for total peace of mind
  • Twin APS vertical flow bar and plate intercoolers for massive levels of chilled charge air
  • Twin APS air intakes for free and easy breathing
  • Twin APS dual vent blow off valves for the ultimate in boost response
  • No cutting of stock body for peace of mind
  • Inconel turbine wheel and Ni-Resist turbine housing for the ultimate in high exhaust gas temperature longevity
  • Hi Performance Gasoline Spec turbochargers completely eliminates the limitations of regular diesel spec turbochargers commonly found in aftermarket turbo systems

The APS enhanced Corvette delivers uncompromised driveability. Crisp throttle response, tidal waves of torque, silky smooth highway cruising and excellent fuel economy all add up to an outstanding daily driver - and at your whim, mash the pedal and unleash the beast within.

With insane horsepower and monster torque, the APS High Output System elevates the Corvette performance enthusiast exclusively into the pilot's seat of the supercar owner's club.
