2015 Corvette Z06 Gets Edelbrock Supercharger from Lingenfelter, Tears Up Dyno

Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has just gifted the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 with a new supercharger and they’ve got the video to prove it. Now, before we move on to talk about the Edelbrock supercharger they’ve packed into the Z06, you might wonder why all the work to change the blower that was already present on the LT4 V8.

You see, the Z06 was designed to be as compact and light as possible, so its Eaton supercharger only sits at 1.7 liters. However, since the unit spins up to 20,000 rpm (5,000 rpm higher than the Eaton blower on the ZR1) it delivers the expected oomph.

Even so, Lingenfelter is looking to take the 2015 Corvette Z06 far, far away from the 650 hp and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) stock output, which is why they’ve gifted the 6.2-liter V8 with an Edelbrock supercharger.

For now, the upgrade has delivered an extra 100 hp. While that may not sound all that impressive, as greater gains have been seen with the stock blower, we have to understand this is just benchmark work.

The aftermarket developer is currently looking to add a set of custom headers. They’ll strap the supecar to the dyno once again and from that point on, it will all be pure madness. That’s because the next step in the plan is to upgrade the engine internals.

A goal of 900 hp or perhaps more is what you should expect, so be prepared to talk about this Z06 package throughout the year. Meanwhile, the dyno footage below provides an aural indulgement to keep you busy.
