Lingenfelter Performance Engineering of Decatur, Indiana has been around for over 30 years specializing in the performance engineering industry. Just this past December, the company achieved altering the fastest Corvette ever produced to go even faster.
After multiple altercations and LS9 supercharged enhancements, Lingenfelter’s 2009 Corvette ZR1 was ready to hit the Maryland International Speedway on the morning of December 7, 2009. Results?
First quarter-mile in 9.813 seconds at speeds of 145.74 miles per hour!!
The results blew everyone away, and can be attributed to the supercharger upgrades that included: cast aluminum air intake, 11-rib pulley, 11-rib harmonic balancer, upgraded air filter, four-inch diameter intake tube with mass air sensor and ported throttle body. Other modifications were made to the heat exchanger, intercooler reservoir, wheels and fuel system.
