I'm running an Alky Control meth kit on a Heartbeat blown LS3. It's introduced in the tube between the air filter housing and the throttle body. Maybe three inches upstream of the t'body. I've been...

Now, seriously, that's one conflicted soul above. If I ever lose my mind and want stupid/big power, I'd hope he'd be generous enough to answer a few questions from me:w00t:

The front drive Maggii tvs 2300 on my work truck has over 200,000 miles on it. I "think" the blower's oil was changed once. That's it as far as maintence and repairs. Also like it for what it doesn't...

I've used the regular belts you get from an auto parts store and they don't work for long on a Heartbeat sporting an 81mm pulley. Once they've been on there a short while, belt slip shows up. That's...

I'm running an 81mm on my LS3 with Heartbeat, but the accessories are different on my Vette vs your Camaro. Sizes probably won't match. I use Gatorback belts. Gates green or blue are also good....

I kinda figured as much. I'm at 660ish at the wheels and my Heartbeat only goes up about 15 degrees over where it was at the start of a run. Pretty amazing compared to the older P/D blowers.

An L33 gets you a 5.3L engine with an aluminum block and 243 heads. Nice fat cylinder liners. Compression is up vs an iron block 5.3L if you want to push a junk yard motor. Damn nice place to start...

You can get a nice sounding cam without all the big cam issues. Your tuner can help in that dept too. Slow the idle down, alter the timing a little, and you can get a mean sounding idle out of a not...

That cam isn't huge by any means. It has +3 degrees of overlap and uses an aggressive, high lift, lobe series. Probably will have a fairly loud valve train too. You can make the same power with a cam...

I don't have a clue what the specs of that cam are. Just know that you don't need a rough running, ill mannered, big blower cam to get all the power the Maggie TVS2300 is capable of producing. Low...

Suspension upgrades to "hook" are all good. Just be sure the rest of the drivetrain will take the shock if you do dead hook. You'll have stupid high torque just over idle at WOT. The weak spot(s)...

That's a horrible cam for a Maggie rig with an A6. Also, overdrive your rear pulleys and run a 3.5" up front. Same blower speed as a 3.0" with 1:1 rears. Much less likely to slip. You should be mid...
