GT Spirit reported earlier today ( Dec. 26,2013) that Late Model Racecraft recently dynoed their prototype supercharging package for the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette and saw numbers reach 713 HP and 592 lbs-ft of torque.
It’s only been a few months since the release of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette and already the best of American tuning, including Hennessey performance have already been busy releasing performance package upgrades for owners who want to know how to supercharge their 2014 Chevrolet Corvette.
Now, Late Model Racecraft are putting the final touches on their supercharger package for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette that according to a few commentators, utilizes a Vortech V3 si Supercharger at a relatively tame 8 psi. For reference, the Vortech V3 supercharger is good up to 22 psi. Along with the requisite set of heads, cams and bolt-ons it looks like this supercharger package is almost ready to hit the shelves.
According to A&A Corvette, the tuners responsible for making sure the LT1 inside the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette is healthy at full clip,
“This is the first successfully boosted C7 in the world to run correctly at wide open throttle. A lot of R&D work went into making this possible.”
Leave it up to the tuners in Texas to show the rest of the world how potent a base 2014 Chevrolet Corvette can be. Late Model Racecraft are no strangers to the high horsepower limelight with a record setting standing mile for the Chevrolet Corvette back in 2011 reaching 231 MPH and a record setting standing mile run for the Chevrolet Camaro last year reaching 253 MPH.
And seeing as this is a relatively tame boost for the Vortech V3 supercharger, consumers can look forward to some bigger final numbers in the near future.
