The C8 Corvette’s 495-horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 motor is a lot more than ample. It will make all the ideal noises, and with a -60 time of 2.8 seconds, it can be rapid as hell. For some of the much more power-crazed, nevertheless, that just will not likely cut it.
Since the extra-impressive Z06 product has not nonetheless been unveiled, the aftermarket is racing to increase ability to the C8. We have viewed turbocharged setups for the mid-engine ‘Vette, but ProCharger has just uncovered the 1st supercharger solution we have observed for the C8.
The Kansas Town supercharger company teased a “bolt-on supercharger system” for the C8 Corvette in a video clip produced in November. Particulars are minimal, but according to the clip’s description, the supercharger kit with intercooler pushes the C8 from 495 hp to about 700 on pump gasoline. The enterprise states the blower kit “is just all-around the corner.”
In a online video posted on December 21, ProCharger showed what acceleration with its supercharged C8s seems to be like on a dyno. Of course, it truly is quick and loud as hell.
ProCharger states its package builds 8-9 psi of increase and makes use of an air-to-water intercooler technique. Also, it seems to be fairly damn clear in the C8’s motor bay.
We’ve requested for a lot more details on pricing and availability of this C8 supercharger kit, and will update this article if we hear back again.
