Movers & Shakers: Lingenfelter, Paragon Build Supercharged C8 Corvette E-Ray

By SEMA News Editors

Lingenfelter, Paragon Performance Collaborate on First Supercharged C8 Corvette E-Ray

Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, in partnership with Paragon Performance, has successfully supercharged and fully integrated the C8 Corvette's supercharged LT2 with the E-Ray Corvette's electric drive system.

The project came together when Paragon Performance, an authorized Lingenfelter installer, called the company about supercharging an E-Ray.

Lingenfelter E Ray

The world's first supercharged C8 Corvette E-Ray was tested in SEMA Garage Detroit.

Lingenfelter started the process of upgrading the E-Ray by installing a set of forged Lingenfelter by MAHLE C8 Corvette High Performance Drop-in Pistons, and a Lingenfelter C8 Valve Spring and Pushrod Upgrade. The engine returned to the car where it received the Lingenfelter MAGNUSON TVS2650 Stage 1 C8 Supercharger Package.

Additional modifications were made to the heat exchanger system, according to Lingenfelter. Normally the center tunnel area houses the reservoir tank for the system, however, in the E-Ray the battery for the EV system takes up the entire tunnel area, so a custom tank was fabricated.

For more background on the E-Ray, check out a recap video from Lingenfelter here.
