Roshan Poptani from BoostDistrict recently conducted a dynamometer test on a 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray, providing insights into its performance before undergoing turbocharging modifications. The results shed light on the power delivery of the first-ever hybrid Corvette.

During the testing, the Dynojet recorded impressive torque figures, surpassing the manufacturer’s specifications. With a peak torque of 597.78 pound-feet (810.48 Nm) from its 6.2-liter engine and front-mounted electric drive unit, the E-Ray exhibited remarkable performance potential.

Additionally, the E-Ray’s powertrain, combining a small-block V8 engine with a 160-horsepower electric motor, yielded a total output of 655 horsepower. Despite some drivetrain losses, the E-Ray demonstrated formidable wheel horsepower, outperforming its non-hybrid counterpart, the Stingray.

Looking ahead, BoostDistrict plans to enhance the E-Ray’s performance further by equipping it with twin turbos, potentially pushing its power output to an impressive 1,200 horsepower. While turbocharging a C8 Corvette involves more than just installing turbos, BoostDistrict aims to offer a comprehensive twin-turbo package, including installation and tuning, for prospective customers.

Moreover, the turbo package will not only cater to the E-Ray but also be compatible with the flat-plane crankshaft V8 engine of the upcoming Z06 model. With General Motors set to introduce turbocharged variants for the ZR1 model in 2025, the Corvette lineup is poised for further performance enhancements, marking an exciting chapter in Corvette’s legacy of high-performance sports cars.
