Now that the tuners have their hands on the new 2014 Corvette Stingray, we’re starting to see the aftermarket world works its magic. LG Motorsports has a Z51-equipped Corvette Stingray and they’ve already added a set of their popular Long Tube headers to the LT1. Still equipped with the stock GM tune and air assembly, LG saw a gain of 30 hp and 45 ft-lbs torque.

Here it is guys, first official dyno runs on the C7 Stingray with LG Motorsports 1 3/4 Super Pro Prototype headers. Bone stock to headers and no cats. Car still has the stock air filter in it, stock tires, stock tune….hell it still has the same fuel in it that we picked it up with.
The two dyno pulls are nearly identical with a 443 rwhp and 453 ft-lbs of torque. The baseline hp/tq for the Stingray appears to be 414 rwhp and 407 ft-lbs of torque.
Here is the Corvette Stingray on the dynojet following the header install:
It’s going to be interesting to see how the LT1 takes to the usual aftermarket modifications (headers, cam, air intake, exhaust and tune) and what that will do to the driving experience considering all the driver mode selections and fuel savings technology. But considering a 30 hp gain from just headers, add some of the other mods and a tune and you should be close to 505 hp Z06 territory.
