LAS VEGAS, Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kwan International, a media and broadcast company at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, welcomes new aftermarket partners to their multi-year, multi-phase endeavor that pits two Corvettes, a 2000 C5 and a 2006 C6, against one another in a comparison build. As the completed C6 is equipped with a sponsored Magnuson supercharger, the naturally aspirated C5 continues to receive extensive modifications as it enters its final stretch towards the finish goal date of Feb. 2017. Both Corvettes will measure their horsepower gain (as a percentage in relation to its pre-build dyno) and go heads up down the drag strip for ¼ mile elapsed times. "From the get-go, we knew that the C5 would have the lion's share of challenges," said Christina Kwan, founder of Kwan International, "We always look for innovative ways to highlight, in particular, companies in the aftermarket. With the C5 vs. C6 project, many in the industry along with LS enthusiasts looking for additional gains are intrigued on the outcome." Both Corvettes will be set-up for racing. The C5's set-up is primarily for drag racing while the C6 will make occasional runs down the drag strip, it will be set up for road racing. Its sights are set on qualifying in the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational at the Las Vegas Motors Speedway in March with project partner Stainless Steel Brakes Company's (SSBC) president, Michael Jonas, behind the wheel during the event. The C5 Corvette's build journey has relied upon many of the aftermarket's most respected and reputable companies. "We know that the C5 LS1 is climbing a mountain when you take into account that it is up against the LS2 - a bigger cubic inch motor that has been supercharged," said Kwan, "But it's with the tremendous involvement of our aftermarket partners that have supplied us with the insight and parts to apply to the C5 set-up."
