But with the TVS2300 on there, keeping your foot out of the firewall is asking a lot.

Chevy seems to be pretty anal about reducing interior noise and vibrations based on all the reviews so far. No doubt one of the key contributers to NVH reduction is squishy motor mounts.

What would you need to get to stop the engine from rocking like that?

I don't know how they teach math where you come from, but an unpolished blower alone is going to cost you, according to their site, $6800. (If you want the polished one in the video, fork over $7500). On top of that, this car has:

Corsa Exhuast System: $1450
CAI System: $395
Tune: $75?

If you just add up the unpolished blower, CAI and exhaust, your looking at $8600, not counting any labor or install costs.

Still, that's not a bad price for the power it makes.

You can use "Solid" engine mount, but man you feel the vibration and every time the AC comes on, it's like you got kicked from behind. This rocking WILL break the engine mount soon or later.

This is very true, but i'm willing to bet there will be a much cheaper CAI available in the near future, probably a better design than the Hennessey, too. And there will be cheaper exhausts than $1450 that will accomplish the same thing. But yes, it's definitely more than $7000 to get those numbers.

I am more interested in how much the STOCK block can take. Sure, you can get well over 500 rwhp out of a mustang gt as well, but it sure hell is ill advise unless you build the bottom end up some..rods ect....I am sure that the maro engine, that was not built for F/I will have the same limitations....and we have not even gotten to the drivetrain yet.

All in all though good numbers. Expensive as all out, but good numbers. Heh you could buy a GT500 2010 for what it will cost to get you to those numbers.

Hmm on second thought...what I have seen SS's going for here in S. Fla after the mark ups..a GT500 is cheaper !

You would think with an extra $8500 you would make more power?

Interesting thing here is that realistically a Z28 or some other top of the line future camaro would need to be priced in 45-50k bracket - and right now we can spec out a well equipped SS for around 37k compared to about 44k for a challenger and 46k for a GT500.

Good thing is that the SS already has great brakes and handling as standard - so less to worry about there for most "mortals" who wont be doing serious racing and just want more power at their right foot - so adding a supercharger for 8-9k gives you a very nicely specced car while not making you spend much more than you would on the competition

All gets down to what you want to spend your $ on.
Amazing how many folks are dropping as much as it costs for a supercharger on ground effects and 21' wheels - which are mainly for appearance.


I'm looking at this as an opportunity to build what I expected a Z28 to be in installments :-)


I have to say that although it does nothing for me personally in terms of looks (it somehow looks depressed) - if you can get it at the actual list price the Mustang GT500 is a lot of value for money
