2014 Corvette Stingray with supercharger

 The wait is over for the first supercharged C7 dyno numbers


 We've been waiting patiently, and have seen Pfadt Race Engineering do donuts in the snow with its blown C7 and heard Lashway Motorsports's turbo C7 spool up and blow-off, not to mention all of the pics from the East Coast Supercharging and Redline Motorsports camps. But at long last we have some dyno numbers, courtesy of Late Model Racecraft (LMR). The Houston, Texas shop has been on the fore-front of LT1 engine development since before the 2014 Corvette even hit the streets. And their test car already had one of LMR's heads and cam packages before outfitting it with a prototype of A&A Corvette's C7 supercharger kit that uses a Vortech V3-Si-trim head unit. The crew already lays claim to the title of the fastest C7 (courtesy of an LMR heads/cam package, headers, tuning, and nitrous), and even managed to grab fastest n/a C7 along the way. But with over 700-rwhp it's possible that they could soon reset the record. Word on the street is that tuning the new ECM with boost has proven difficult (throttle issues), but The Tuning School lent a hand to finally crack the code using HP Tuners software.
