C5 and Z06 Corvette Superchargers, and Turbos systems
from, A&A Corvette, Procharger, Vortech, APS, STS,
Supercharger kit brings you dramatic increases in power
while not degrading everyday drivability or highway gas mileage! The system
utilizes a large blow off valve that remains open at cruise and light throttle.
This, essentially, allows the supercharger to “freewheel” under normal
conditions, reducing parasitic loss to less than that of an
A naturally aspirated engine would require higher
compression, a very aggressive camshaft, high flow cylinder heads with heavy
duty valvetrain, exhaust headers with free flowing exhaust, larger throttle
body, high flow intake manifold, free flowing air filter housing and duct, etc.
Most of these parts are NOT emissions legal. The price of these components alone
is higher than a supercharger system. The labor to install these is also much
higher. Then there are the inherent problems brought to the vehicle by such a
build. A large camshaft all but ruins everyday drivability AND gas mileage.
Driving in traffic becomes a very trying experience. A stick shift car will buck
and surge and an automatic car will be hard to hold back because of the
increased idle speed required. Low speed torque is reduced with an aggressive
camshaft which will require lower differential gearing and a high speed stall
torque converter (automatic cars) to make up for it. This further degrades
drivability and gas mileage. With all the components required for a high
performance naturally aspirated car, the degradation in drivability and gas
mileage, the total inability of the vehicle to pass emissions tests and the
added expenditure, the vehicle would STILL have up to 100HP less than a stock
Corvette with one of our standard systems bolted on.
Average increase TO THE REAR WHEELS is approximately
175 RWHP! No other modification, in this price range, even comes close.
