It goes without saying that the C7 Corvette Stingray launch was likely one of the most anticipated platform launches 
in recent years. You couldn't open a magazine, or an Internet browser without hearing about the new Corvette. 
Needless to say all of us here at ProCharger felt the exact same, and could not wait to get these C7's running around 
with some "unnatural" aspirations. So now that the engineering dust has settled, we are pleased to announce the 
release of the 2014+ C7 Corvette ProCharger Supercharger System.

So here we go … you asked and we listened.

The most rugged bracket possible--DONE.
A dedicated 8rib drive with the most belt wrap--DONE.
The biggest and most effective intercooler, with the lowest pressure drop--DONE. 
Easy, OEM-looking install, without cutting or trimming--DONE.
A system that can go above the standard HP offering--DONE.

With 20 years of designing supercharger systems under our belt, the energy surrounding ProCharging these C7's was 
truly amazing. The C7 system design started as a 100% clean slate approach, with the simple theme of "over engineered" 
to be used throughout. Obviously we knew that these cars would instantly be in the 650+ HP range, however we knew 
that it wouldn't be long before people were pushing the limits of these LT-1 motors well into the 1300+ HP range. Even 
though not everyone will push these kits past the factory 7 psi boost level, its nice to know that everything has been 
designed to go WELL beyond that, from the bracket design, intercooler, all the way down to every nut and bolt. 

This system is not only ready to go beyond three times the LT-1's base power output, but also was designed to be hands down
the easiest Corvette supercharger system install we have ever offered. (4-5 hour install time) So lets start taking a look at 
each part of the system, and what makes this Procharger system the best bolt on for these new C7 Corvettes.

Bracket System:

Starting from GM engine CAD models, ProCharger made the CNC chips fly to create a one-piece billet design utilizing existing,
robust mounting points on the LT-1 motor for maximum holding force. This system will firmly hold head units ranging in size
from a P-1SC-1 up to even an F-2 head unit–that’s right, we said F-2! (Obviously we don't condone running an F-2 with a 8rib)

Absolutely no relocation of any OEM parts is needed–no fluid systems are opened up, and the ABS module and lines stay 
in the factory location. This not only speeds up the install, but it also ensures that all factory braking, cooling, and oiling 
systems on the car work just as GM intended.

Knowing 1300+ HP C7's were just around the corner, ProCharger wanted to make sure this system offered an 8-rib 
dedicated belt drive system out of the gate. Using a patented crank pulley design, we are able to adapt a 8.125" supercharger 
drive pulley onto the factory harmonic balancer, without having to drop the steering rack or pin the crank (balancers are already
pinned from the factory). The ProCharger crank pulley works by using a system of "cam-locks" to securely grip the factory 
balancer, taking the load off the crank bolt, and ensuring years of service without worry.

Combining this 8.125" crank pulley with a multi-position, fixed idler near the supercharger pulley, the system was designed
for maximum belt wrap. This ensures maximum belt traction as the power levels of these systems get pushed well beyond
the factory 7psi system offering.

Even with the best belt wrap possible, the tensioner system still needs to be up to the task of holding drive power without slippage.
ProCharger's tensioner is unique in design in that its not only spring loaded, but also allows the customer to add as much 
pre-load adjustment as they want into the belt. This tensioner has already been proven to support 1300+HP when used
with dedicated 8 rib belts, so handling the factory 7 psi is no stress at all. 

You can also change the pulley and 8-rib belt without removing the bracket or the supercharger. 

Intercooler System:

GM spent a great deal of time on the airflow design of this new C7, from the front fascia to the inlets for the coolers on the 
rear fenders. With this in mind ProCharger knew that an off-the-shelf intercooler wasn't going to cut it, and that something had
to be designed specifically for the C7’s horsepower and cooling needs. 

During the initial design process, we looked to see if an adequate intercooler could be installed without the removal of the
front bumper, however knowing the power levels these C7's would be pushing, and how easy the bumper is removed (Thanks again GM) 
it was determined that it wasn't possible to fit an adequately-sized intercooler without removing the front bumper. 

So starting with a fresh core design, the cross flow section was increased in size to eliminate pressure drop as much as 
possible, while retaining cooling capacity. Just how big is this intercooler you ask? How does 972 cubic inches sound? 
That’s right, almost 1000 cubic inches of core volume alone, attached to end tanks also designed specifically for the C7.

Now we know that Corvettes get used for almost everything under the sun. Some cars are daily drivers; others are used on the
road course, and finally the track cars tearing up road courses across the US. With that in mind, we knew that some flexibility
in the intercooler mounting would be welcomed, so both Vertical and Horizontal mounting of that massive intercooler is possible. 

No matter which version of the intercooler the system is ordered with, it comes with only two pieces of preformed-silicone 
charge tubing–from the supercharger to the intercooler, and the intercooler to the throttle body. We wanted this to be
the easiest ProCharger kit to ever be installed on a Corvette, and what better way to accomplish that than making it with 
only 2 tubes and 4 clamps on the entire pressure side. This helps create the best airflow possible, and also eliminates 
any chance of tubing causing rattles or vibrations.

Inlet Options: 

At the time of purchase the customer can opt for either the standard inlet, which adapts to the O.E. air box using a 
CNC billet adaptor plate, or the "Race" inlet for higher HP applications needing a filter with more surface area.

Tuning for full systems is included with the 7 psi stock system offering. This comes in the form of a simple-to-use hand held 
programmer. With long-term reliability in mind, these tunes are set up conservatively from ProCharger to account for fuel 
variations across the country. As always, more power can be had from the base system, with custom tuning from your dealer
or tuning shop. 


ProCharger knows that there is always a chance that someone might eventually sell their Corvette and want to return it to stock.
With that in mind, every piece of OEM plastic that would have to get trimmed is already supplied with the kit. Not only does 
this drastically speed up the install, but also ensures that the you can return the car to 100% OEM stock, using the original 
GM-factory pieces. 

Power and System Wrap Up:

With all the different options C7 Corvettes can come with (auto or stick transmission, wet-sump or dry-sump, Z51), ProCharger 
has made sure to have you covered with a system designed for each and every version.

Horsepower with the standard kit on 7 psi and pump gas is 635+ HP with conservative factory tuning, and easily up to 650+HP
with custom tuning for local fuel types. Depending on camshaft modifications, heads, and fuel type, the sky is the limit
after that–we can't wait to start seeing just how far our customers can push this new platform.
