Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has released a new liquid to air intercooler intake manifold for turbocharger and centrifugal supercharger setups on 2014-2015 C7 Corvette Stingray. The tuning company says the new intake manifold has an “innovative, low-profile design,” which “integrates neatly into the engine compartment,” and can be used with the C7’s stock hood.
The manifold is designed to replace the OEM manifold and is a two-piece aluminum unit with an intercooler core, resulting in reduced pressure drop, increased power and slightly reduced weight. It also includse provisions for port fuel injectors, which can be used for nitrous or alcohol injection if the OEM direct injection system will be used.
“The low pressure drop design provides increased power and boost for 800 to 1200 hp applications, and even higher if using ice in drag racing applications,” said Graham Behan, chief engineer, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
Lingenfelter’s new intake manifold was selected by a panel of journalists to receive the Global Media Award at last year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. It was chosen for its innovative compact design, allowing C7 owners to supercharge or turbocharge their cars without having to replace the C7’s hood.
