Whipple makes a kit for Z06 (LS7) vettes. Don't know if there are any challenges going to a C5. You might have a little more head room with the bigger blower. That's if you don't want to get on to the "adding ribs" treadmill that gradually sucks your wallet dry. You don't notice it, but you get talked into 8 ribs, then 10 ribs, then o/d balancers.....then, you wake up one day and go, "sheeeeeeeiat, money's gone". Then it's, "Honey, you have a little spare time. Any chance of you working a second job?"

You can make 10psi with a front drive TVS2300 and a 427. Mine does 8.5psi but its only like this because I didn't want to turn it up, you need to run an 8" OD balancer and a 3.0 pulley, but will need an 8-rib drive and about 10:1 static compression.

Use the jackshaft version and risk breaking the jackshaft at higher blower speeds.

Thought about swapping to a centri or turbos? Easy 650-1000rwhp with a forged 427. Turbos would make more torque and be adjustable for boost/power at the turn of a dial.
