SUPERCHARGED C8 CORVETTE UPDATE: TESTING IS OVER, IT’S TIME FOR PRODUCTION!
WE TEST, THEN WE TEST SOME MORE, AND THEN…
We find the most miserable conditions we can find (100+ degrees + Humidity) and punish the road course. Since only then, after tens of thousands of miles, hours, and hours of wide-open throttle, can we officially say it’s production-ready. Follow along in the blog as we showcase how our new C8 Corvette Supercharger kit is no one-hit wonder, as we show off some of the production parts coming to the table. Hope you like carbon fiber…
THE FINAL LAP…IT’S WHAT MATTERS THE MOST:
Sure you can strap a car to a dyno and make a single quick hit to produce some good numbers. However, when you are talking about a C8 that’s just as capable on the track as it is as a daily driver, consistent fade-free power is what matters. ProCharger engineers went above and beyond to create one of the most effective intercooler kits ever and combined it with hours and hours of wide-open throttle road course testing.
All of this design and testing has resulted in a supercharger kit that’s as powerful on the final lap, as it is on the first. With inlet air temps hardly registering over ambient, even in the most extreme three-digit temperatures.
CARBON, CARBON, WE GOT YOUR CARBON:
Since one of our testing C8’s in the fleet had its engine bay dressed from GM in ultra-slick carbon fiber, we have done the same with our supercharger system. With optional intake covers and engine bay covers that are some of the most stunning cosmetic carbon, you have ever laid eyes on. These are 100% hand-built, right here in the USA to our strict guidelines for fit, finish, and function.
And yes, it’s designed so that your golf clubs and targa roof still fit as intended!
RUGGED DESIGN WITH A DIY INSTALLATION AND BIG-TIME POWER!
When buying a supercharger for your C8 Corvette, you want to make sure it’s designed to last. Thankfully ProCharger engineers have designed one of the most robust brackets and drive systems ever imagined for a mid-engine sports car. Then to put the icing on the cake, the installation doesn’t require any cutting or trimming of the car or chassis in any way. For those that want to possibly tackle the installation themselves, great news, it does NOT require engine removal or subframe removal.
Even with all tricks to making everything fit into the ultra-compact engine bay, one thing that isn’t small is the power gains, starting at 180+ horsepower!
