(ANNOUNCER)>> TODAY ON ENGINE POWER POWERSTOP'S ULTIMATE Z-06 CORVETTE GETS EFORCE SUPERCHARGED AND CHASSIS DYNOED.

(MIKE)>> WELCOME TO ENGINE POWER AND PHASE TWO OF THE POWERSTOP ULTIMATE Z-06 SWEEPSTAKES. NOW PHASE TWO INCLUDES PUTTING MORE SUPER INTO THE SUPERCAR PLATFORM. NOW WE'RE GONNA INCREASE THE FACTORY 505 HORSEPOWER RATING TO OVER 650 WITH THE USE OF THIS EDELBROCK SUPERCHARGER SYSTEM. NOW AT THAT POINT OUR Z-06 WILL BE MAKING A FEW MORE PONIES THAN THE BRAND NEW 2015 Z-06. LAST WEEK WE STARTED THE BUILD BY REMOVING THE DRIVELINE, FROM THE ENGINE ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE REAR DIFFERENTIAL. IT ALL CAME OUT AS ONE ASSEMBLY. THAT WAS TO GET ACCESS TO THE CLUTCH SO WE COULD REPLACE IT WITH A BETTER ONE.

NEXT WE REMOVED THE TORQUE TUBE AND STOCK TRANSMISSION THAT HAD AN ISSUE WITH FIRST GEAR. WE REPLACED IT WITH A BRAND NEW TREMEC UNIT. NEW QA ONE ADJUSTABLE SHOCKS WERE PLACED AT EACH CORNER. POWERSTOP'S NEW ONE CLICK TRACK KIT THAT WAS DEVELOPED ON THIS CAR WAS INSTALLED, AND IT USES 14 INCH CROSS DRILLED AND SLOTTED ROTORS ALL THE WAY AROUND AND A SPECIALLY FORMULATED PAD DESIGNED FOR HARDCORE OPEN TRACKERS AND AUTOCROSSERS LOOKING FOR BETTER STOPPING POWER.

(PAT)>> THE HEART OF ANY SUPERCAR IS ITS POWERPLANT, AND THE NEW Z-06 PACKS 650 HORSEPOWER AT THE FLYWHEEL. AND WE WANT THIS ONE TO BE A CLOSE CONTENDER, AND THE EASIEST WAY TO DO THAT IS A DIRECT BOLT ON SUPERCHARGER UPGRADE. THIS EDELBROCK EFORCE KIT WAS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR THE 2006 TO 2013 LS SEVEN Z-06 VETTE AND ITS UNIQUE OILING SYSTEM. THE KIT INCLUDES EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEED FOR A STRAIGHT FORWARD INSTALL THAT YOU AND A BUDDY CAN DO IN YOUR GARAGE, LIKE NEW INJECTORS, AIR INLET, SEVERAL PARTS TO ADDRESS THE DRY SUMP OILING SYSTEM, AND A HAND HELD PROGRAMMER TO INSTALL THE NEW TUNE. AS IMPORTANT AS THE ACTUAL PARTS IS THE INSTRUCTION BOOKLET TO INSTALL THEM. EDELBROCK PROVIDES A VERY DETAILED GUIDE WITH PICTURES. NOW DON'T SKIP STEPS. IF YOU DO PLAN ON SPENDING MORE TIME ON THIS BUILD BECAUSE YOU'LL HAVE TO BACK UP TO MOVE FORWARD AGAIN.

(MIKE)>> SINCE OUR BATTERY IS ALREADY DISCONNECTED WE'RE ADDING A STEP AND REMOVING THE HOOD. NOW THE FASTENERS THAT RETAIN THE FRONT FASCIA, SOME ON TOP, SOME IN EACH WHEEL WELL,

AND SEVERAL UNDERNEATH. THE BRAKE COOLING DUCTS ALSO NEED TO BE REMOVED. NOW WE CAN PULL OFF THE ENTIRE FRONT FASCIA AND SET IT TO THE SIDE. DRAINING THE COOLANT IS THE NEXT STEP. NOW THE AIR INLET IS REMOVED AND THE MASS AIR SENSOR IS PULLED OUT AND PUT IN A SAFE PLACE TO AVOID DAMAGING IT. USING A 15 MILLIMETER WRENCH WE CAN UNLOAD THE TENSIONER AND REMOVE THE SERPENTINE BELT.

THE THROTTLE BODY IS NEXT IN LINE FOR REMOVAL.

ALONG WITH IT ARE THE COILS AND BRACKETS, WHICH COME OFF AS AN ASSEMBLY.

(PAT)>> WITH PIG MAT UNDER THE FUEL LINE WE CAN DISCONNECT IT. UNPLUG THE INJECTORS AND REMOVE THE HOSE FROM THE DRIVER'S VALVE COVER. THEN THE DRY SUMP TANK AND THE PASSENGER VALVE COVER TO REMOVE THE ASSEMBLY. REMOVE THE FOUR FASTENERS SECURING THE FUEL RAIL TO THE MANIFOLD, AND PULL THE FUEL RAILS WITH ALL EIGHT INJECTORS OFF. NOW DISCONNECT THE EVAP CONNECTOR, MAP SENSOR, THE VACUUM HOSE FROM THE BOOSTER, AND THE PCV TUBE. AFTER LOOSENING THE BOLTS, MOVE THE MANIFOLD TOWARDS THE FRONT AND PULL THE LAST VACUUM LINE OFF THE BACK. AND USING SOME TYPE OF SUCTION DEVICE, REMOVE AS MUCH DEBRIS AS POSSIBLE. HERE'S A COMMON SENSE QUICK TIP.

MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN THE SURFACES AND PLACE TAPE OVER THE PORTS SO NOTHING GETS IN THEM. YOU MUST ALSO MAKE SURE TO REMOVE IT BEFORE THE BLOWER DROPS ON.

(MIKE)>> THIS VALLEY COVER IS NOT GOING TO BE

REUSED, HERE'S WHY. THE UNDERNEATH OF THE SUPERCHARGER INTAKE MANIFOLD REQUIRES MORE CLEARANCE BETWEEN IT AND THE VALLEY COVER THAN THE FACTORY INTAKE DID. SO EDELBROCK SENT US A NEW ONE. NOW IF YOU NOTICE IT'S GOT MORE CLEARANCE FOR THE OIL PRESSURE SENSOR AND USES COUNTER SUNK FASTENERS FOR A LITTLE EXTRA ROOM. NOW WE DO HAVE TO SWAP A COUPLE OF THINGS OVER. WE WILL REUSE THE EIGHT ORINGS FROM THE FACTORY PIECE AS WELL AS THE ORIGINAL BAFFLE, WHICH IS HELD ON WITH FASTENERS AND A THICK BEAD OF SILICONE. PRY EASY AND DON'T BREAK IT. WITH A NEW BEAD OF LOCTITE SILICONE ON THE BAFFLE, IT GOES ON THE SAME WAY IT WAS REMOVED. NOW THE ORIGINAL GASKET AND DRESSED OUT COVER GOES ON. TO AVOID ISSUES DOWN THE ROAD PLACE A SMALL AMOUNT

OF LOCTITE ANTISEIZE IN THE COUNTER SINK. THIS WILL AVOID STRIPPING OUT THE ALLEN HEAD OF THE BOLTS IF IT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED SOME DAY. THE ORIGINAL OIL PRESSURE SENSOR CAN GO BACK ON AND THE PLUG IS CONNECTED. A QUICK WIPE OF THE ANTISEIZE AND IT'S BREAK TIME.

(ANNOUNCER)>> MORE DISASSEMBLY AND PREP FOR THE BLOWER UP NEXT.

(PAT)>> THE SUPERCHARGER INSTALL CONTINUES ON POWERSTOP'S ULTIMATE Z-06 SWEEPSTAKES GIVEAWAY CAR. ON THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE REMOVE THE 15 MILLIMETER

BOLTS THAT RETAIN THE EVAP SOLENOID. THE UPPER RADIATOR SHROUD IS REMOVED, AND BACK UNDERNEATH THE OIL IS DRAINED AND THE FILTER IS SPUN OFF. USING A DISCONNECT TOOL, THE OIL COOLER LINES CAN

BE REMOVED FROM THE COOLER ALONG WITH TWO BOLTS HOLDING THE COOLER TO THE SHROUD.

ONE MORE FOR THE BRACKET AND THE COOLER IS REMOVED. NOW TRACE THE COOLER LINES TO THE OIL PAN. DISCONNECT AND REMOVE THEM AS AN ASSEMBLY. THE COOLING FAN IS NEXT AND IS REMOVED FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE CAR. THE POWER STEERING RESERVOIR IS DRAINED USING OUR PNEUMATIC BLEEDER. THEN THE LINES ARE DISCONNECTED FROM THE COOLER AND THE COOLER IS REMOVED, FOLLOWED BY THE ALTERNATOR.

(MIKE)>> THE NEXT STEP REQUIRES DISCONNECTING THE STEERING SHAFT FROM THE STEERING RACK. NOW IF THE STEERING WHEEL IS TURNED WHEN IT'S DISCONNECTED DAMAGE TO THE AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT SYSTEM CAN OCCUR. SO HERE'S HOW TO AVOID THAT. SIMPLY PLACE TAPE ON THE STEERING WHEEL AND SECURE IT TO SOMETHING ON THE CAR SO IT WON'T TURN. BACK UNDERNEATH THE STEERING SHAFT BOLT IS REMOVED AND THE INTERMEDIATE SHAFT IS PULLED FROM THE GEAR. BOTH TIE RODS ARE DISCONNECTED AND THE SWAY BAR END LINKS ARE DISCONNECTED FROM THE CONTROL ARMS SO THE SWAY BAR CAN BE REMOVED.

(PAT)>> WE HAD TO REMOVE THE STEERING RACK TO HAVE ACCESS TO THE BALANCER.

SINCE THIS ONE IS A PRESS FIT AND IT DRIVES THE SUPERCHARGER, WE NEED TO INSTALL A DOWEL TO KEEP IT FROM ROTATING ON THE CRANKSHAFT. THE ORIGINAL OIL COOLER WAS REMOVED FROM THE CAR AND IT'S GETTING REPLACED WITH THIS SETUP.

IT'S A BLOCK MOUNTED COOLER LIKE THE ONES USED ON THE LS THREES. NEW FITTINGS AND LINES ARE GONNA ROUTE IT DIRECTLY

INTO THE ENGINE'S COOLING SYSTEM, UNLIKE THE OLD

SYSTEM WHICH WAS COOLED BY INCOMING AIR.

HERE'S HOW IT'S DONE. ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE OF THE BLOCK REMOVE THE 17 MILLIMETER THREADED FREEZE PLUG AND INSTALL THE SUPPLIED FITTING RIGHT IN ITS PLACE. NOW ROUTE THE HOSES SO THEY RUN BESIDE THE ENGINE MOUNT AND TOWARDS THE FRONT OF THE CAR. THE OIL COOLER IS INSTALLED NOW. IT FASTENS TO THE OIL BYPASS LOCATED ABOVE THE OIL FILTER PAD. FROM THE FRONT OF THE CAR REACH BACK AND ATTACH THE HOSES TO THE BLOCK AND THE COOLER. NOW WE CAN INSTALL A NEW FILTER TO WRAP UP THE OIL MODIFICATION. THE STEERING RACK GOES BACK IN AT THIS TIME. PLACE IT IN THE PASSENGER SIDE FIRST. THEN MANEUVER IT TO THE DRIVER'S SIDE. THE INSTRUCTIONS SAY TO DO THE OPPOSITE BUT YOU RISK BENDING THE BRAKE LINES. SO USE THIS METHOD. THE NEW HOTCHKIS SWAY BAR GOES BACK ON NOW JUST LIKE THE OLD ONE CAME OFF, ALONG WITH THE ALTERNATOR.

(MIKE)>> NOW THREE BOLTS ARE REMOVED FROM THE PASSENGER'S SIDE OF THE WATER PUMP SO WE CAN

INSTALL THE NEW IDLER BRACKET AND PULLEY WITH NEW HARDWARE FROM THE KIT. SITTING NEXT TO IT THE NEW TENSIONER BRACKET IS INSTALLED ALONG WITH ANOTHER IDLER PULLEY. AND THE STOCK TENSIONER WE REMOVED EARLIER MOUNTS TO THE NEW BRACKET. AND WRAPPING IT UP THE EVAP PURGE SOLENOID CAN BE ATTACHED. THE POWER STEERING RESERVOIR REQUIRES A NEW RELOCATION BRACKET FROM THE KIT. IT MOVES THE RESERVOIR OVER AND ATTACHES THE SAME WAY. UP FRONT AND UNDERNEATH THE HORNS AND THEIR BRACKET IS REMOVED AND THESE SUPPLIED TEMPLATES ARE PLACED ON THE RADIATOR SHROUD SO WE CAN DRILL HOLES FOR THE HEAT EXCHANGER HOSES. NOW THE HEAT EXCHANGER IS INSTALLED. ITS JOB IS TO REDUCE THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE THAT PASSES THROUGH THE INTERCOOLER THAT IS LOCATED IN THE SUPERCHARGER MANIFOLD. THIS STAND ALONE SYSTEM REQUIRES A WATER PUMP TO CIRCULATE THE COOLANT. THIS BRACKET SUPPORTS IT.

(PAT)>> NOW WE CAN REINSTALL THE UPPER RADIATOR SHROUD, MOUNT THE WATER PUMP'S RELAY TO IT,

AND ROUTE THE HARNESS TO THE PUMP AND MAKE THE CONNECTION.

THE CONNECTION FROM THE PUMP'S OUTLET TO THE HEAT EXCHANGER'S INLET CAN GO IN NOW, FOLLOWED BY THE HEAT EXCHANGER HOSE ASSEMBLY, WHICH GETS CONNECTED TO THE OUTLET ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE. A "T" STYLE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR OFF THE SAME PUMP RELAY GOES TO THE EVAP SOLENOID AND MAIN VEHICLE HARNESS. BEING A STAND ALONE COOLING SYSTEM, A RESERVOIR IS REQUIRED. IT USES NEW HARDWARE TO MOUNT IT ON THE PASSENGER'S SIDE NEXT TO THE FUSE BOX. THE HOSE FROM IT GOES TO THE INLET OF THE WATER PUMP. FINISHING DOWN HERE ARE THE FACTORY HORNS. UP TOP A COUPLE OF ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS WILL SUPPLY VOLTAGE TO THE PUMP. AND WITH THAT WE'RE TAKING A BREAK.

(ANNOUNCER)>> THE SUPERCHARGER IS MATED TO THE LS SEVEN POWERPLANT NEXT.

(MIKE)>> ALL THE HARNESSES AND HOSES OUT OF THE WAY?

(PAT)>> YEAH, NO WE'RE GOOD.

(MIKE)>> ALRIGHT, WE'RE BACK AND READY TO START PREPPING OUR EDELBROCK SUPERCHARGER TO GO ON THE ENGINE. NOW THIS UNIT USES EATON'S GEN SIX FOUR LOBE ROTOR DESIGN THAT HAS 160 DEGREES OF TWIST FOR QUIET OPERATION, MAXIMUM AIR FLOW, AND RELIABILITY. NOW THE HOUSING IS INTEGRATED INTO THE INTAKE MANIFOLD FOR A SEAMLESS DESIGN AND MINIMUM COMPONENTS. EDELBROCK'S INSTRUCTIONS WANT THE ORIGINAL ORING PORT GASKETS FROM THE STOCK INTAKE USED IN THE SUPERCHARGER. BUT WE OPTED FOR NEW ONES TO AVOID ANY SEALING ISSUES. WE GOT THESE FROM AUTOZONE. THE SUPPLIED MANIFOLD TO EVAP HOSE IS ATTACHED TO THE FITTING BELOW THE HUB SNOUT. NOW LAY THE INTERCOOLER TO RESERVOIR TANK HOSE IN THE ENGINE BAY AND CONNECT IT TO THE INTERCOOLER RESERVOIR INLET. THE DRY SUMP HOSES ARE RAN AT THIS TIME AND CONNECT TO THE VALVE COVERS AND THE TANK.

(PAT)>> THE SUPERCHARGER DOESN'T UTILIZE TWO OF THE ORIGINAL BOLT HOLES FOR THE INTAKE MANIFOLD AND

THE CYLINDER HEAD, AND THOSE GO DIRECTLY INTO THE CRANK CASE. SO THEY HAVE TO BE CAPPED OFF. WITHOUT REMOVING ALL THE TAPE FROM THE PORTS, LOCATE THE REAR DRIVER'S SIDE BOLT HOLE AND THE FRONT PASSENGER SIDE AS WELL. NOW INSTALL THE SUPPLIED BUTTON HEAD BOLTS TO SEAL THEM UP. FINALLY IT'S TIME TO REMOVE ALL THE TAPE. AND WITH ANOTHER SET OF HANDS HELPING YOU, LOWER THE SUPERCHARGER ASSEMBLY ONTO THE ENGINE.

(MIKE)>> YOU LOOK PRETTY GOOD RIGHT THERE.

(PAT)>> BE CAREFUL NOT TO PINCH ANY WIRES, AND MAKE SURE THE SEALS STAY PUT. ATTACH A COUPLE OF LINES TO THE PORTS ON THE BOTTOM SIDE. THE LARGE ONE IS FOR THE BRAKE BOOSTER. EIGHT FASTENERS WILL SECURE THE ASSEMBLY TO THE ENGINE. THEY ARE TORQUED IN TWO STAGES. FIRST TO FOUR POUND FEET, THEN TO SEVEN AND A HALF. NOW THE DRIVER'S SIDE FUEL RAIL GOES IN. IT'S OUTFITTED WITH NEW 60 POUND PER HOUR INJECTORS FROM THE KIT. THE ORIGINALS WERE 42 POUNDS PER HOUR, AND THE PASSENGER SIDE IS NEXT. AN INCLUDED STAINLESS CROSSOVER LINE CONNECTS THE FRONT OF BOTH RAILS. A NEW PCV HOSE WILL GO FROM THE VALLEY COVER TO A PORT ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BLOWER. IT'S A LITTLE TIGHT BUT YOU GET THE IDEA. NEXT WE'LL COMPLETE THE LINES THAT RUN TO THE EVAP SOLENOID. A NEW FUEL LINE FROM THE FIREWALL TO THE DRIVER'S

SIDE RAIL IS SNAPPED IN PLACE.

(MIKE)>> THE FACTORY HARNESS PLUGS INTO THE NEW

INJECTORS, AND THE ORIGINAL COILS AND BRACKETS CAN GO BACK ON, AND CONNECT ALL THE INTERCOOLER HOSES. NOW REMOVE THE GROMMETS FROM THE STOCK COIL COVERS.

INSTALL THEM ON THE SUPPLIED COIL COVER BRACKETS. THEN BOLT THEN ON TOP OF THE IGNITION COILS. A REGAP OF THE PLUGS IS REQUIRED FOR THE ADDITIONAL CYLINDER PRESSURE CREATED FROM THE SUPERCHARGER'S BOOST. THE SETTING WAS 40 THOUSANDTHS ON THE ORIGINALS, THE RECOMMENDED SETTING FROM EDELBROCK IS 35. NOW WE CAN INSTALL THE PLUG WIRES, WHICH GO FROM THE PLUG TO THE COIL PACK. THE BELT IS NEXT, HERE'S THE DIAGRAM. WITHOUT IT WOULD BE LIKE WALKING AROUND IN THE WOODS AT NIGHT WITHOUT A FLASHLIGHT AND NO PLACE TO GO. GOING BACK IN FROM THE BOTTOM IS THE ORIGINAL FAN ASSEMBLY. CAN'T GO FAST WITHOUT THIS. THE THROTTLE BODY USES THE ORIGINAL HARDWARE.

A NEW COUPLER, A SIGNATURE SERIES AIR FILTER WILL KEEP DEBRIS OUT OF THE ENGINE, AND AIR INLET TUBE THAT HOUSES THE MASS AIR SENSOR IS POSITIONED AND TIGHTENED DOWN. THE LAST HOSE OF THE KIT GOES FROM THE DRY SUMP TANK TO THE NIPPLE ON THE AIR INLET. THESE SLICK EDELBROCK COIL COVERS ARE CAST OUT OF ALUMINUM AND COVER ALL THE HOSES AND HARNESSES UP FOR AN AWESOME LOOK.

(ANNOUNCER)>> THE PRESSURE IS ON! THE TUNING AND DYNO SESSION ARE UP NEXT!

(MIKE)>> THE SUPERCHARGER IS INSTALLED AND PAT AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT THIS THING DOES AT THE REAR TIRES. BUT THERE'S A COUPLE OF THINGS LEFT TO DO ON OUR

CHECKLIST, LIKE ADD FLUIDS, FLASH THE PCM, AND BLEED THE CLUTCH. BEFORE WE REINSTALL THE FRONT FASCIA WE'RE GONNA REPLENISH ALL THE FLUIDS, STARTING WITH THE POWER STEERING SINCE IT WAS DRAINED TO REMOVE THE STEERING RACK. NOW THE INTERCOOLER SYSTEM IS FILLED WITH COOLANT. THIS SYSTEM MUST BE PURGED AND WE'LL HANDLE THAT IN A FEW SECONDS. PUTTING THE CAR IN ACCESSORY MODE WILL ALLOW THE INTERCOOLER PUMP TO CIRCULATE COOLANT.

(PAT)>> JUST TOP HER OFF AND I THINK WE'RE GOLDEN HERE.

(MIKE)>> IN ORDER TO START IT WE NEED TO UPLOAD THE TUNE FROM EDELBROCK'S HAND HEL SUPPLIED IN THE KIT JUST TO GET US TO THE DYNO. YOU READY PAT?

(PAT)>> YEAH MAN, LIGHT HER OFF.

(MIKE)>> MOMENT OF TRUTH, HERE IT IS.

(PAT)>> VERY NICE!

(MIKE)>> NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL A FAST FIRE UP.
