ProCharger Releases Supercharger Kit For C8 Corvette

It’s safe to say the C8 performance aftermarket is picking up steam. At SEMA, we saw everything from the suspension upgrades, exhaust systems, headers, wheels, and even wide-body kits for Chevrolet’s mid-engine supercar. We even got a glimpse of the new Z06 in Chevy’s booth. And while this highly anticipated car will not be available until 2023, power-hungry C8 owners can rejoice because ProCharger has released and is now shipping their centrifugal supercharger system.

Fitting the supercharger on the C8 Corvette was no small task for the gang at ProCharger, but it had to be done because, for over 25-years, the company has supercharged every year Corvette. So when the C8 was introduced, the team went to work, and between the concept, design engineering, and testing, it took over a year for the finished product to hit the shelves. 

ProCharger’s HO Tuner Kit Plus is available from the company and is now shipping. Thanks to the super-efficient P-1SC-1 head unit, this system produces 180-plus horsepower with only 6.5-pounds of boost, bumping the LT2 engine to 675 horsepower when used with 91 or 93 pump gas. The system includes an enormous air-to-water intercooler, CNC billet intake, CNC billet supercharger brackets, stainless steel drive system, polished or black finish options, and optional hand-laid carbon fiber covers.

When it comes to the installation, the ProCharger C8 kit takes a much different approach than some of the other systems that we have recently seen. For example, other companies require the removal of the engine and transmission, but that’s not the case here. Instead, ProCharger designed the system to be installed without ever removing the car’s drivetrain, although a lift is recommended for this process. This system is also a 100-percent bolt-in design that doesn’t require any fabrication or modification to the C8. The rear carpet will need to be trimmed for the installation process, but that’s the extent of any changes required. If you ever wanted to return the C8 to stock, remove the ProCharger, replace the carpet, and reinstall the factory panels.
