Callaway Cars Shows Off New Hood Design for the 2014 Callaway Corvette Stingray

Last week we shared details of Callaway’s engineers successfully supercharging the first direct injected engine in the Gen 5 family from General Motors. The work that was done included the install of an Eaton TVS Supercharger onto a 2014 5.3L Silverado truck. In addition to the hardware, Callaway’s engineers worked on the calibration with the electronic powertrain management system which includes Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing and Active Fuel Management.

This work has given Callaway a jump on the competition as it prepares to offer a Callaway-engineered 2014 Corvette Stingray. But not all work is being done under the hood. Callaway has always offered their own hood treatment for the Callaway-tuned Corvettes as the supercharger requires additional headroom. In advance of Corvettes at Carlisle, Callaway is showing a sneak preview of how that new hood will look.

But concerns about some of the new fuel savers like direct injection, variable valve timing and the active fuel management means that tuners will have the step up their game to unlock the hidden power the LT1 is capable of providing.

Although many tuners are already promoting their packages for LT1 upgrades, only Callaway has demonstrated the ability to actually supercharge an engine in the “Eco-Tec” family by installing an Eaton TVS Supercharger on a 2014 5.3L Silverado.
