Sorry I miss understood at first. I never been around anyone with a GT500 that had a Lysholm blower but then again most people up here I see with GT500s run the stock blowers/pulley and just do pulley swap/tune if anything. We don't hang with many Ford guys period, not saying there not good guys, just not a lot in our area.

But back in my terminator cobra days (silver 03), I new guys with 3.3 lysholm blowers. If you YouTube lysholm 3.3 a bunch of videos come up. They always seemed to make good numbers, just not as popular. Whipple, KB, maggie will always have a big name when it comes to PD blowers. Some people like to stay with what has been proven, I took a chance with my blower being different and couldn't be happier, well if it's was a forged motor, 8 rib setup and more boost I would be happier.


LoL looking through this thread I realized I posted a lot. I'm not trying to be the ambassador for the lysholm blower. I'm just speaking from the great experience I have had with the blower and I know there is others on this forum who have had good results with it.

The reason they are not well known is because they are primarily just a manufacturer of head units, and other companies brand and package them up for sale. They are used by a few name brand SC companies I believe.

Hey blownhotrodder sorry I got busy the last couple days. Pretty sure the kits came with 80lb injectors, that's was from mike@rmcr said on this thread.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...=151522&page=2

RMCR seemed to know these blowers quite well, plus I think Frank at vortech said the same thing awhile back. I will try to send some emails out tonight for you and see about prices within the next couple days.

Yes thanks for the pm too. Not much out there on this kit, just trying to find out what I can. Think I may go this route, I want something different. 80's is a surprise, figured they would be lower. Thats good to have a little growing room.

In the PD world of 5th gen Camaros it doesn't get much different, and I told you how happy I was from the begining with mine, install was simple and power has been great.

I was told by a vendor that they are temporarily not being made as a tooling issue on making the superchargers has put a huge delay. Hope they get it sorted out by the time I decide which way Im going to go.

They are a good blower. we have installed quite a few. There still a 2300. the pulley combinations are the only hold back if you want to go really high HP. but if you want quality/dependability and dont want 750RWHP then there perfect blowers!

A 2.3L blower, whether it be Roots or twinscrew, is pretty much the same performance wise. I like to do things a little differently sometimes too. But, in this case, it may not be the smartest move. If they aren't making the stuff needed to build new ones, what will it be like in a few years when you need a part or two? Buying low volume stuff can be risky down the road.

Regardless which one you go with, a 2.3L p/d blower will lighten up that big girl quite a bit

Unless one is found "laying around" it looks like there are no Lysholm's to be had so I will have to rethink what I want to do now.

Didn't lysholm borrow technology from whipple...? I thought I read somewhere that lysholm is not using the eaton rotors. Can anyone expand on that?

Eaton is the company that manufactures the TVS rotors. Magnuson, Edelbrock, Gen Motors, Ford, you name it use the Eaton TVS rotor group. It's a "Roots" blower. The twinscrew blowers made by Lysolm, Whipple, Kenne Bell are a totally different animal. The TVS blowers compress air downstream of the blower. The twinscrews compress the air between the rotors. Different ways of doing the same thing.

No whipple actually borrowed from Lysholm from what I understand and they actually supplied the internals for a point in time.
