The tease continues for C8 enthusiasts who want even more power.
Last month, the folks at ProCharger released a video showing two of their Corvettes – a Torch Red (with a license plate reading “WHOOSH”) and a “Bad in Black” (license plate “PSSSSH”) with the unmistakable whine of the company’s forthcoming bolt-on supercharger system very evident indeed.
Now ProCharger is back with another video that lets us see their very neatly packaged supercharger system installed on the C8’s 6.2-liter V8, but more importantly hear the two Corvettes roaring on the dyno, and boy, do they sound mean on acceleration!
ProCharger says their upcoming supercharger kit will bump the Stingray’s horsepower to 700 on pump gas, with 8 PSI of boost. The kit also uses an air-to-water intercooler system.
The company didn’t release any more details, but they do promise that the new system is “just around the corner.” Once details on pricing and availability are announced, we’ll be sure to let you know.
Earlier, the company – which has been providing similar power upgrades for Corvette generations dating back to 1985 – said planning for its C8 ProCharger system started in the fall of 2019, followed by 3-D modeling prior to their C8s actually arriving at company headquarters. “Our two Vettes have gone through rigorous testing and 1,000’s of miles to make this kit just right,” ProCharger said. “We’re excited to share it with you all soon!”
For now, we’ll just have to settle for those sweet sounds of their ProCharger system on the dyno.
