C5 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 C5 has taken the Corvette legend to new heights and has produced what is arguably the perfect platform to build the greatest 'Vette yet.

Now, the perfect partnership has been formed to take the C5 to a performance level that has 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 LS1 engine.

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

A straight forward bolt on totally engineered system that utilizes the latest in liquid cooled turbocharger technology and with a pair of huge bar and plate intercoolers, APS delivers a system that results in outrageous power and torque right across the entire RPM range.

Huge 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.

With insane horsepower and monster torque, the APS Intercooled Twin Turbo High Output System performs like a strong 9L Big Block and raises the C5 performance enthusiast exclusively into the supercar club!

Huge Horsepower and Mountains of Torque

  • Twin 500 HP liquid cooled turbochargers for instantaneous boost
  • Twin bar and plate intercoolers for massive levels of chilled charge air
  • Twin air intakes for free and easy breathing
  • Twin remote wastegates for bullet-proof boost stability
  • Twin blow off valves for the ultimate in boost response
  • No cutting of stock structural body parts 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

Best of all, 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.

Another stand-out feature of the APS intercooler system is that the stock air conditioning system is retained and unencombered. By specifying two large bar and plate intercoolers at each corner of the front of the car, generous air-flow is maintained into and through the stock air conditioning and engine cooling radiators - in addition to a high volume of fresh air flow through each intercooler (requires the installation of Z06 fog lamp opening mesh inserts). This ensures the best possible air flow through the engine radiator, air conditioning condensor and intercoolers - hence the best possible cooling from the stock radiator components.

High volume / high precision tooling ensures that the highest quality components possible are created for the APS intercooled Twin Turbo System. Precise NC machined jigs and fixtures are used to locate components with high accuracy in 3-dimensions during construction.

The result is a straight forward bolt-on totally engineered system that fits first time - every time.

With APS production components of equal to or higher than factory quality and specification, the look and feel of the APS Intercooled Twin Turbo system is one that screams the professionalism that APS High Output Systems are renowned for - right down to provision for the stock MAF meter via unique reinforced silicon hoses.

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.

 

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.

For vehicles that are required to run catalytic converters, high flow cats can be installed into the twin 3" stainless steel exhaust pipes supplied with the APS twin turbo system as shown above. Note: cats not supplied.


 

Note: The APS Intercooled Twin Turbo system can be tuned to deliver very high power output when combined with large displacement built engines. Under heavy duty operating conditions such as circuit racing, high ambient temperatures or any sustained high engine loads, it is recommended that the engine cooling system is upgraded and full flow engine oil cooling be installed.

Automatic Transmission: In order to accomodate the stock auto trans, boost pressure will require attention to limit the amount of power and torque through the trans. Please discuss this with your APS dealer prior to commencing installation.
