In a similar vein to the 1000 HP Street Package released for the LT4-powered Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 back in 2018, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering is showing off a C7 Corvette making use of those very same performance upgrades during the 2019 SEMA Show.
And of course, it wouldn’t really be SEMA without a supercharged small-block.
The Lingenfelter “Eliminator Series” aims to offer buyers high-end horsepower numbers which remain both reliable and mild-mannered for service on the street. The 1,000 HP Corvette brings the gamut of goodies Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has become known for over the past 45 years.
We’re talking about a Lingenfelter Edelbrock 2650 Supercharger kit featuring an external aluminum intercooler reservoir, a new 103 mm throttle body, Lingenfelter DI 27 fuel injectors which offer 27 grams of fuel flow per second for high horsepower applications, along with a big-bore fuel pump and a fuel pump voltage booster.
Nestled into the block is a new Lingenfelter GT 31 camshaft, the heads have been CNC ported and polished, and there’s even a 5-inch high-flow air intake. Lastly, as with all of LPE’s Eliminator projects, there’s a lower balancer with 8.65’ pulley, along with an adjustable fuel pressure regulator, and an E85 flex kit.
The company only announced the 1,000 HP Corvette in a short video which doesn’t include dyno readouts, but much like the Camaro, expect the Eliminator Corvette to kick out the jams to the tune of 1,000 HP and 866 lb-ft of twist.
As for what it can do, we hope to have the official numbers soon. But if the nonstop 9-second runs out of the Eliminator Series Camaro are of any indicator, this C7 Corvette will likely be an even faster missile just from its weight and aerodynamic advantages. Stay tuned.
If the HPS synthetic motor oil branded livery didn’t give it away, those looking for this special Corvette can find it at the Royal Purple booth #22943.
