(edit) I take that back...that's NOT BAD bang for the buck but it will void your drivetrain warrantee, like most engine performance part installs.

Maybe if someone like Tom Henry was willing to do a LS7 swap for about the same price as an add-on supercharger it might sell very well.
Yeah but so would getting a Cam swap for the LS3 (which is what is on my plate since i got a big fat NO in October when i tried to order a Camaro with a factory LS7)
