Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/16/2021

Just a couple of months after the C8 Chevrolet Corvette has made its way to consumers, we’re seeing the car modified extensively! As if getting a brand-new Corvette to sink our teeth into wasn’t enough, some people are deciding to take it to new heights.

Hennessey Performace seemed to be the first one to slap a set of turbos on the car shortly after taking ownership of it. However, we have been seeing Corvette modifications left and right. From shops and individuals alike, these factory rockets are getting some boost. It seems like a mix of the itch to go viral and influencers wanting to see what they can turn their C8 into has provoked some to start turning wrenches.

One of the builds to keep an eye on is that of Tj Hunt’s C8. To spice things up, he’s also decided to go the twin turbo route with his Corvette. When he takes us through some of the steps to bring the car together, we learn where this build might be a bit different than the rest. It seems like Hunt is taking care to make sure that this thing is as visually stunning as it is a stunning performer.

This time, we get taken along for the journey with the latest update from Hunt on the car. After showing us a couple of the details that bring the build together, we get to hear the first to start up.

The first time that a key is turned on any build, it can be a nerve-racking experience. If one thing is forgotten about or done improperly, everything can be flushed down the tubes. On the other hand, though, it could all go well and we could be treated to an exhaust note that sends a chill down the spine.

By following along with the video below, we get to see how this first start is going to turn out.
