Lingenfelter C8 Stingray Convertible Supercharger Kit

During the 2022 Detroit Auto Show, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering pulled the sheet off of a new supercharger kit for the C8 Corvette Convertible. The company is known for its Corvette engineering excellence, and this new kit is no exception. While being able to fit inside tighter packaging, the new supercharger system uses the same Magnuson TVS 2650 blower developed for the C8 Corvette Coupe, which was first seen at the 2021 SEMA show.

C8 Corvette Stingray Convertible: Lingenfelter Supercharger Kit Details

With the assistance of the supercharger, the C8 Corvette Stingray can produce more ponies than the Z06. An incredible 700 horsepower and 675 lb-ft of torque – more than the new Z06 – without compromise to the factory systems, drivability, and, according to what’s being described as “a minimal impact” on fuel economy. Just like the C8 Corvette Stingray Coupe, the fully integrated system features a Lingenfelter by Magnuson TVS 2650 DI Intercooled Supercharger, and Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Ported LT5 95 mm Throttle Body. An interceptor control unit that communicates with the vehicle’s engine and fully encrypted electrical architecture is also part of the package.

The C8 Corvette Stingray Convertible Supercharger kit also includes the proprietary Lingenfelter XCT Heat Exchanger System for maintaining low intake air temperatures to produce increased power and reliability. Additionally, a 1.5-gallon self-purging coolant reservoir tank is also included. Lingenfelter developed and tested the package alongside Magnuson Superchargers. Once Lingenfelter completes track testing, they’ll release additional data regarding the performance enhancements that come with the supercharger.

The system will be released on October 1st, 2022, with the HTC program to be released on January 1st, 2023. Warranty, Pricing, performance numbers, and additional details for both systems will be revealed on October 1st, 2022. Suppose you’re interested in purchasing the kit for your C8 Corvette Stingray Convertible. In that case, you can do so through the Lingenfelter website, where they currently have a product page for potential customers to join the Product Notification List. But we’ll have to wait a couple more weeks to obtain more information on this potent kit for the Stingray.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Ford Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
