Procharger Brings Forced Induction to a Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition

The folks at ProCharger definitely know a thing or two about winning.

The company says it was the first to bring supercharger systems and tuner kits for LS based Corvettes, first to bring mainstream usage of air to air intercoolers to centrifugal supercharging, and first to offer a gear-driven centrifugal supercharger with a self-contained oiling system.

Now ProCharger has taken its game up a notch by being the first to supercharge the Limited Edition 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon.

If you are one of the lucky 250 owners of the 2011 Z06 Carbon Edition, you know that it already features the ol’ dependable LS7 engine, Magnetic Selective Ride Control and ZR1 braking system as well as numerous carbon fiber parts.

If you’re not happy with that standard 505-hp motor, though, the ProCharger experts have just what you are looking for. By the time they recently installed their P-1SC-1 supercharger with 5 psi of intercooled boost and long tube headers on the Carbon edition, they had increased the horses to 703 with 622 lb. feet of torque, leaving the factory ZR1 in the dust at 638-hp and 604 lb. feet.

“The results of ProCharger’s industryleading technologies are the most efficient superchargers along with the most effective air to air intercoolers,” the company’s website boasts. “This combination produces the lowest intake temperatures in the industry which translates into the most efficient use of boost. In other words, more horsepower per pound of boost.”

The owner of the power-boosted Corvette, a professional football player, definitely wouldn’t argue. He described his new ride as “stupid fast” and “amazing.”
