Default Can I add a supercharger to my standard C7 Corvette?

My Corvette is Not a Z06 or Grand Sport. Was checking and it looks like Callaway does not have Supercharger upgrades for my Vette and I'm not sure why

Lots of supercharger options for the base Corvette. You have PD blowers and centrifugal and a few choices within those 2 types.

I have a Stingray with a Procharger. There are alot of other brands and a ton of recommended and reputable vendors on this forum. The supercharger will make you fall in love with your car all over again.

Callaway will do it, assuming the car is new or pure stock with less than 5k miles.. Check out the SC627 package.

There are at least half a dozen options when it comes to supercharging your car. Lots of really good vendors/tuners and various options based on your needs/wants. Being in California I went with A&A for my supercharger and couldn't be happier.

Can’t go wrong with the A&A kits. The key is finding a competent tuner that has experience with C7s.

Plenty of great options are available.

I went with an Eforce. Love it!

Thank you to all the replies, this is my 1st Vette, and I'm very pleased with it. Had the CTS V coupe before this, and the Supercharger really made that car sing. I want one on this Vette, and will look into all the options provided. Sadly, my C7 base has 13,000 miles on it. It has the 100,000 factory Warranty and has been well cared for to date, but guess Callaway won't be able to help. Am in Southern Missouri, so may look at the E Force and Procharger for starters.

Mine has over the 5000 miles, but is still pure stock. It also currently carries the GM 100,000 mile warranty.

Being happy with the Procharger, can you tell me what kind of horsepower response you got. If I indeed can go the Callaway route, they tout 627 bhp with over 600 tourque at 4400 rpm. Thanks again for the info.

Speaking for myself (A&A Vortech kit) It's all going to depend on what your goals are. Also keep in mind the Callaway blower will sound different than a procharger/vortech. I also had a CTSV lol and don't regret selling it one bit to get the Stingray. My Stingray makes 610 whp and 548 tq on 6 psi with methanol. Next summer I'll pulley down and add headers and shoot for 700 to the wheels.

Is yours the racing yellow? It's the color of mine and was glad they went to that shade. Thank you again for all the information, it's been real helpful.

If you are looking to make 550-600 horsepower at the wheels then I'd just get the A&A kit and call it a day. If you want more then look into headers, methanol injection and maybe a cam. Whatever you decide I suggest that you do everything at once if possible. That way you only pay for one tune, unlike most of us. I would also suggest that you don't run cats if you live in a non emissions area. FI + cats don't always get along well.

I sure wish I could say yes that mine is a Racing Yellow Corvette but no it isn't mine on the Dyno. Just a customer's Corvette that I thought looked great in our Dyno Room!

car has not been dynoed. i went with with the p1x head unit. minimal fee to upgrade. procharger rates the kit for 140hp gain with there supplied tune. if you go procharger skip the supplied tune and go custom. more power to be had and safer. make sure to find a tuner who knows the lt engine.
