ProCharger has just launched a comprehensive supercharger package for the C8 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which increases output to just over 725 hp.
ProCharger has developed two different kits for the sports car. The first is called the HO system and provides a boost of 5 psi, giving a total of 665 hp. Meanwhile, the newly announced Stage II system increases this to 7.5 psi of boost, resulting in more than 725 hp when running premium pump gas.

The supercharger, an air-to-water intercooler, CNC billet bracket system, ProCharger head unit and a fully calibrated and tuned ECU are included as part of the system. ProCharger has also fine-tuned the functionality of the cruise control button on the steering wheel to now easily activate and deactivate the ‘Vette’s cylinder deactivation system which can switch off four of the cylinders when they are not needed.
A number of optional upgrades are also available for the C8 Corvette. These include a helical gear set to reduce noise, an aluminum intake manifold, various supercharger upgrades, and carbon fiber upgrades for the manifold cover and trunk.
As you might expect, the kits aren’t exactly cheap, but represent good value when you consider how much extra power they deliver. The cheaper of the two systems, the HO setup, starts at $17,498, while the Stage II system will set customers back $18,498.
Two smaller versions of the HO and Stage II systems are also available. The first of these is called the HO Intercooled Tuner Kit Plus and is the same as the HO kit, but lacks a calibrated ECU and only allows engine timing adjustments. Then there is the Stage II Intercooled Tuner Kit which has an intake manifold with port injector valves included and does not include fuel system tuning or engine timing.
