Just in case that sweet, sweet dyno action with the Late Model Racecraft C7 Z06 didn’t satisfy your appetite for power, here’s the Lingenfelter Performance Engineering 2015 Corvette Z06, with Edelbrock supercharger.
Amazingly, while this Z06 does fail to surpass that from LMR in terms of power output, the car accomplishes its mind-numbing 682 RWHP figure with nothing more than an Edelbrock supercharger in-place of the factory unit; nothing more required. That’s a gain of more than 100 HP to the rear wheels resulting from a single component swap.
That’s largely because while the stock supercharger unit peaks at somewhere just south of 10 psi (according to LPE’s plot), the Edelbrock unit that they’ve fitted to their car is closer to a 14 psi max. So, yeah, that would do it. The description on LPE’s YouTube video of the dyno run says that step two is setting the car up with some aftermarket headers, so they can really “break into the engine.”
Considering that the Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 has only begun arriving in customers’ care since in December, 2014, the plethora of different tunes that have come out since is nothing short of astounding. We’re sure we’ll be seeing a 1,000+ HP car out there in no time.
