BDS blowers also look into Weiand blowers. I'm not sure if this will work with an LS3 tho...You may wanna go with a GMPP LSX Block, forged engine internals, CNC/ported heads, and an all new trans. and rearend. It's alot to consider when adding the power the blower will be putting out.

MagnaCharger/Eaton have kits for the LS3 in the Vette. I'm sure they will have kits for the Camaro. And yes they are 50 sate legal.

I'll be looking to build the internals as well ... 600hp just won't cut it for a FI 6.2L engine .. .. That is one place the 03/04 cobras / Gt500's shine .. already built from the factory .. just change your boost (or blower / turbo) ... too easy to get way beyond the 600bhp mark ... and out of a smaller engine ..

I believe the question is having a 'through the hood' blower. A roots type supercharger will sit quite nicely under a normal hood, or at the very least one with a bit of a extra powerbuldge, see ZR1 Corvette. I have seen 1 or 2 cars driving on the street with a through the hood setup, but thats all. I don't know if thats because of legal issues or because you need to have an "over the top" personality.

That blower looks like it belongs on a 572 cubic inch big block running nitrous

I have a weiand 6-71 sticking out of the hood on my 928 and at least in Minnesota it is completely street legal. The odd part her is you can't have anything hanging from your mirror but the blower (which is a HUGE visual impairment) is completely legal.

not all roots superchargers will sit nicely under a normal. it all depends on the size of s/c, like the LS9 and the LSA superchargers are not very large at all. the magnuson s/cs are beautiful for the LS series motors and sit nicely right in place of the stock intake manifold.

but most of the "thru the hood" ones are like the old weiand 6-71s, 8-71s and 14-71s. along with the car running carbureted setup, which adds height in and of itself.

LS guys get it easy, all they ever made for the LT1's were centrifugal style. which I honestly dislike.... im a positive displacement kind of guy.


in fact my little project im working on now for my LT1 is a roots style s/c with methanol injection.

and a quick peek...

I wouldn't want to pull up next to you at a light...



Yeah. Roots type S/C all the way. You may also want to look into Eaton's new TVS Roots type S/C... It's giving real good gains and it's pretty efficient...

I love that because it looks so wrong, I have never seen a Porche modded so visibly before. Does your blower have an on off function (joke, i'm making fun of Mad Max, were he has a toggle switch for the blower).

im just gonna say that you should sit in a car with an old inefficient supercharger and scoop coming out of the hood. not very practical. i dont know if your driving habits with the car will be permitting. I do know that those superchargers are no where near as good as other poweradders such as turbos and newer supercharger systems. sure they may look "good" on older cars but it goes with a level of technology far below the rest of the camaro. and for those "looks" you will pay a major price premium

What the he** is the engine doing in the front. I know it's a V8 and it won't fit in the back but it still looks really really wrong.

I agree, if you plan on tracking the car, or for that matter driving on at least a semi-daily basis then this type of blower is not for you. There are definately more advantages with turbos and centrifugal blowers but they don't exactly grab the instant attention that old-school roots do. The one thing I do love about this setup though is the instant boost, no waiting for spool.

If you're planning on getting the SS, is it going to be you DD, or do you plan on buying it for track use? If it's going to be a DD or you plan on driving it around then this set up is going to be highly impractical.

If you're going to just be taking it out on nice days over the weekend and then throwing it right back in your garage then I'd say ok. But as bad-ass as it does look it's very impractical for every day use.
