If 460 horsepower from the factory isn’t enough to satisfy your need for speed from your 2014 Stingray, then you might want to check with the good folks at Edelbrock.
Edelbrock has just revealed an all-new E-Force Supercharger kit that won’t break the bank but will deliver numbers on par with the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06. The company says its supercharger will produce 624 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque.
If you’re worried about the way your Stingray might look after such a transformation, Edelbrock says its new supercharger fits under the stock hood with no modifications, “allowing you to retain the factory look of this highly engineered masterpiece.”
Edelbrock promises the installation will be a hassle-free bolt-on job that won’t sacrifice runner length or the intercooler area.
The supercharger also is designed, cast, and made in the United States for those patriotic Stingray owners out there and furthermore meets the carbon emissions standards of all 50 states.
No price has been released on either the upcoming Z06 or the Edelbrock E-Force, but estimates are that the Z06 could go in the neighborhood of $100k or more when buyers get through checking the option boxes. The website Auto Evolution believes the Edelbrock supercharger might be less than $7,899 – not bad for a car that nearly matches the 625 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of torque of the Z06 at a fraction of the cost.
By the way, Edelbrock, a well-respected specialty aftermarket performance parts manufacturer based in California, says it’s using the same quality Eaton TVS Rotor assembly that GM used on the C6 ZR1.
If you want to save some bucks, this system sounds like it might be the way for power-hungry, but thrifty, Stingray owners to go.
Edelbrock says the new supercharger will be offered in three performance levels:
Stage 1 – Street Systems – emissions legal to provide the best combo for your daily driver.
Stage 2 – Track Systems – Includes the addition of a competition air intake kit, smaller pulley, injectors (if required), and a custom tune optimized for these upgrades. It’ll be for competition racing only and is available complete or as an upgrade.
Stage 3 – Professional Tuner Systems – Include all the essential parts that a racer or tuner would need to build a custom supercharged racing setup. It’s for competition racing use only.
