Lingenfelter is now offering packages for your 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray to bring your horsepower up to 750 or even 1,000 employing the use of 417 cubic-inch engines – one equipped with a supercharger and the other with twin turbochargers. Though the price of either package has yet to be determined, you better start counting your pennies, ladies and gents.

 Corvette Stingray Lingenfelter Upgrade 2/3

The first package produces 750 horsepower with a Magnuson TVS2300 Supercharger mated to a 417 cubic-inch LT1, while the second package has a twin-turbo LT1, making 1,000 horsepower. Pricing will include the removal, inspection, and disassembly of the engine and the preparation of the custom LT1 aluminum block. The list of modifications is extensive, and both builds require the deletion of factory Active Fuel Management (AFM) and variable cam timing system.

Each package comes complete with: JE forged aluminum pistons, Total Seal premium file-fit rings, Callies forged steel crankshaft, Oliver billet 4340 forged steel I-beam connecting rods, heavy-duty rod and main bearings, and a computer balanced rotating assembly, Lingenfelter CNC ported and polished LT1 cylinder heads, OEM hollow stem 2.13-inch intake valves and 1.59-inch diameter exhaust valves, three-angle valve job, hand blending of valve seats, CC chambers, surface, set spring heights and assembly, Comp Cams valve springs and seals, Lingenfelter supercharger hydraulic roller camshaft by Comp Cams, a ported and polished throttle body, and a 160-degree thermostat. Each package’s fuel system is upgraded to support the added horsepower.

While the supercharged package features a Magnuson Heartbeat TVS2300 intercooled supercharger system, the twin-turbo option comes complete with a Lingenfelter Gen-2 twin-turbo system featuring dual Garrett true ball bearing turbochargers, which are liquid cooled and engine oil lubricated. Lingenfelter uses a proprietary compressor and exhaust housing combination with integral wastegates, super high efficiency liquid-to-air chargecooler, high-efficiency liquid-to-air heat exchanger, coolant tank and pump assembly, and 304 stainless steel 4-into-1 custom exhaust manifolds and turbo outlets. Lingenfelter turbocharger scavenge pump and turbo oil drain reservoir, custom molded silicone air ducts, and two K&N 360 degree conical air filters, as well as stainless steel and ceramic heat shields and stainless clamps, round out the list.

 Corvette Lingenfelter Upgrade 3/3

All necessary gaskets, fluids, and bolts are provided with both packages, as is professional assembly and engine installation. Engine testing and expert ECM tuning, as well as baseline and post-build chassis dyno testing are included with a three year/36,000-mile warranty for the supercharged, and one year/12,000-mile warranty for the turbocharged package. Each individual Corvette is given a four-wheel alignment, wash and detail, and a full tank of 93 octane fuel before delivery.

Lingenfelter claims that even with all the added horsepower, the Corvettes retain excellent drivability and the highway mileage is not adversely affected.

Each completed Corvette is documented with a Lingenfelter certificate of authenticity and badged with Lingenfelter chrome on the fender, interior, and under-hood. A normal installation takes about four to six weeks for the supercharged package and eight to ten weeks for the twin-turbo package, in addition to a four week notification prior to the build, but this can fluctuate based on current production levels.
