Lingenfelter Performance Package Series for 2014 Corvette Stingray

LPE C7 PackageLingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) has released its expertly tuned performance package series for the new, 2014 Corvette Stingray, with power starting at 550 horsepower and reaching as high as 750 horsepower with forced induction.

The seventh-generation Corvette’s new 6.2-liter “LT1” engine features technologies that include direct injection, variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation. With calibration of this all-new control system key, Lingenfelter engineers developed tuning for the C7 by relying on their direct-injected architecture expertise gained in-house through Lingenfelter’s 2014 GM truck program and through consultancy work for other OEM suppliers.

“The 2014 Corvette Stingray is one of the most exciting new cars in years and the Lingenfelter team wasted no time in turning out a series of highly-anticipated performance upgrades that deliver uncompromising drivability in addition to horsepower,” said Ken Lingenfelter, CEO/Owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.  “We’re privileged to have such talented engineers on our team, whose level of passion for performance drives them to produce reliable, road-ready systems.”

Lingenfelter’s Chief Engineer Graham Behan led the calibration charge on the new control system, allowing the greater airflow enabled by the CNC-ported cylinder heads and higher-lift camshaft to be converted into more power at the rear wheels. With years of proficiency in tuning GM’s LS engines, Behan’s performance-engineering resume includes contributing to the development of the advanced “LT5” engine, which powered the landmark 1990 Corvette ZR-1.

Lingenfelter offers the following standard engine packages for the 2014 C7 Corvette:
* C7 Corvette LT1 376 ci N/A Engine Package — Rated at 550 horsepower; includes CNC heads and camshaft; keeps AFM and variable cam systems operational.
* C7 Corvette LT1 376 ci N/A Engine Package — Rated at 600 horsepower; includes CNC heads, aggressive camshaft and headers.
* C7 Corvette LT1 N/A 417 ci Engine Package — Rated at 650 horsepower; includes the 600 horsepower package, a stroker crank, connecting rods and forged pistons.
* C7 Corvette LT1 376 ci Supercharged Engine Package — Rated at 640 horsepower; this is the base supercharger package installed on a stock engine.
* C7 Corvette LT1 376 ci Supercharged Engine Package — Rated at 700 horsepower; includes CNC heads, camshaft and supercharger.
* C7 Corvette LT1 417 ci Supercharged Engine Package — Rated at 750 horsepower; includes CNC heads, camshaft, stroker crank, connecting rods, forged pistons, supercharger and upgraded fuel system.

Initially Lingenfelter also will offer higher-power C7 packages as custom builds, some of which will be added to the “standard” package list, such as the twin turbo application.

Complementing upgrades for the Lingenfelter “LT1” Corvette Stingray will include higher-performance wheels and tires, higher-capacity brake systems, suspension upgrades and performance-oriented interior and exterior components. Tire offerings include an expanded selection of Continental Tire’s ExtremeContact DW line with popular Corvette tire sizes for the Z06 and ZR1.
