The Arctic White Callaway which made its debut at the Bash was the first to be built and Callaway’s reps told us back then that they already had around 50 orders from customers wanting to upgrade their Corvette Stingrays with the supercharged Callaway SC627 package.
Callaway’s Chris Chessnoe posted these photos yesterday on the Corvette Forum of a brand new Laguna Blue Corvette Callaway SC627 Convertible that will soon be on its way to its new owner, who happens to be a woman named Janet.
At the heart of the Callaway Corvette package is their third-generation supercharger designed to produce breathtaking power from the new 6.2L LT1 V8 found in the Stingray. The Eaton TVS 2300 pushes performance to 627 hp at 6400 rpm and 610-lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpms.
Due to the space constraints, Callaway pushed the intercooler through the top of the hood which not only reminds us of the shaker hoods from yester-year, but the design helps the triple-element intercooler stay nice and cool. The design is somewhat edgy for some folks but we think it gives a distinctive one-of-a-kind look for Callaway.
Once the pics were up on the Forum, many members chimed in and asked questions about the package. One question was regarding the intercooler through the hood and asking what keeps water out of the engine compartment. Chris says that any moisture which enters will run off the carbon fiber shields which surround the supercharger.
Some other questions which were answered include what’s the warranty (3 years or 36K miles), does the donor car need to be a Z51 (no, but 95% of Callaways are being ordered with it) and does it need to be sent back to one of Callaway’s shops in case of service (no, most work can be performed by your local dealership’s service department).

The cost of the Callaway Corvette SC627 upgrade runs $17,995 and can be ordered through your authorized Chevrolet dealer. We recommend that you talk with Mike Furman at Criswell Corvette in Gaithersburg, Maryland or Marissa Marx at Purifoy Chevrolet in Fort Lupton, Colorado.
