Callaway boosts the 2014 Corvette Stingray to 627 hp

Article by Christian A., on July 10, 2014

Callaway has just announced that it finalized its Corvette powertrain management system calibration. So, if you are not satisfied by the 450 hp and 450 lb-ft (610 Nm) of torque delivered by the 6.2-liter V8 engine you’d be happy to know that Callaway is able to boost the engine to an impressive 627 hp and 610 lb-ft (827 Nm) of torque.

According to the American tuner, these numbers were obtained thanks to a new supercharger system that includes a new intake manifold design, new intercooler design and a 2300cc high helix angle, four-lobe rotor pack.

In addition, the new intercooler system received three discrete liquid-to-air cooling elements that provide unequalled inlet air cooling efficiency.

According to the press release, the new intercooler configuration eliminates any temperature increase and this was proven during the development testing on the dyno and at the racetrack.

What’s more interesting is that production cars already begun shipping from Callaway’s Old Lyme Connecticut and Santa Ana California facilities.
