How much horsepower will a baically stock C6 handle in a drag race application? and what are some modificactions that would strengthen them.

The other 460 site has a C6 sticky post with lots of info.. With the right setup you can just about throw what you like at it

Is Frank Merkel a member on this board? I'd like to see his answer to this question. I think it would help if someone could make a list of C6 mods/parts recommended for level of HP. Kind of like the 460 HP build chart.

Just for example, Broader Performance has 3 C6s listed, 500hp, 700hp, and 1000hp. Would a person with a 750-800 hp need the 1000hp one or could they get by with the 700 based on intended use?

I have read allot about the different mods that can be done to a c6, but at what point do I need to consider things like rollerizing it or using hardened shafts, or any other mods for that matter.

This list of course would be just a guide, like the 460 HP chart, to give folks an idea of what might be needed to handle an engine they want to build. Hope this makes sense. Thanks, Dave S.

X2. They're a very tough trans. Especially if Frank gets ahold of one. Very Happy

Here's a prime example of one of Frank's C6's:
