HOW MUCH POWER CAN WE MAKE WITH THE C8 ‘VETTE?
ProCharger was the very first supercharger manufacturer to offer intercooled kits for C7, C6, C5 and C4 Corvettes, so it’s no surprise that we are at the forefront of development on a supercharger kit for the 2020 C8! As you can see in the photos, research, development, and testing is well under way on our shiny new black and red C8’s here in the Lenexa, KS facility. Planning was initiated last fall for the C8 ProCharger system, followed by 3-D modelling prior to the company’s two C8’s arriving at ProCharger headquarters.
Of the new ‘Vette, General Motors President Mark Reuss said, “The traditional front-engine vehicle reached its limits of performance, necessitating the new layout.” That layout, as we all know, is a mid-engine design where the 6.2L V-8 is placed right behind the driver, with the crankshaft pulley nearly touching the firewall. The packaging is very tight but rest assured the engineers and staff at ProCharger have found the solution.
