STaSIS Supercharger and Engine Modifications.

The supercharger assembly bolts on to the 5.2-L V10 with no machining or welding necessary and is constructed primarily of CNC-machined aluminum. Generating up to 7.5 psi of boost pressure, the engine produces an astounding 710 hp and 523 lb-ft of torque. The STaSIS supercharger is designed to maximize power and durability by turning at low speeds to generate the desired boost levels. Lower rotating speed requires less parasitic drag from the engine and adds less heat to the charge air. STaSIS has incorporated a stand-alone cooling system, separate from the vehicle’s existing cooling system, to further cool the supercharger and stabilize running temperatures.

Complementing the supercharged intake, STaSIS developed a lightweight, free-flowing, T304 stainless steel exhaust system that replaces the factory exhaust. The exhaust’s larger tailpipes, less restrictive dual mufflers and “X” style crossover design weighs 30 lbs less than the factory unit and sounds like a car enthusiast’s dream. Deeper and stronger exhaust notes emanate across all throttle positions without being intrusive or “droning” in the cabin.

To wring out the most power and torque across the entire RPM range, STaSIS engineers have tuned the engine management software to utilize the benefits gained from both intake and exhaust modifications. Larger amounts of power and torque are available from 2000 RPM all the way up to 7500 RPM, providing one of the most exhilarating driving experiences available from any sports car.
