Modifications to the Camaro

What companies do you think will start producing aftermarket products for the Camaro? We know Pedders is already having there go at the suspension, but who else is going to start making intake's, header's, exhaust's, pulley's, etc.?

If this Camaro takes off like we hope it will, their all going to want a piece of the action!

WELCOME and

I can't wait to see what differences a KB vs TV2300 shootout will show.

Twinscrew will come out on top, no doubt. Just a better design than the roots.

The TVS2300 is a definite improvement over the typical roots design. Eaton seems to be closing the gap between twinscrew performance and roots type performance.

Can you point me in the direction of any direct comparisons? The only one I've found so far is on Magnusun's website where their smaller blower made more power across the curve than the larger screw-type and the centrifugal. I am not at all disputing the Gen VI being better than the older generations, but I'd like to see direct comparisons. I've noticed that 2.6L KBs claim to be topped out at 700 horse' where I've seen 1.9L TVS blowers up to 800 horse'. They weren't comparisons on the same car, but they were claims by their respective companies. For me, I'll go with the one that makes the best power, reliability, and has a CARB-exemption. Again, any information would be greatly appreciated

I can't find a damn thing. This could be because the TVS2300 is new compared to the twin-screw blowers, but I don't think its that new.

I'll continue searching.

Amen to you for choosing the one with the most potential. That's always the right choice!

Funny thing is, since GM really spared no expense in building the ZR1, you'd have figured that if the KB was truly far superior to the TVS, they would have worked with KB to develop a twin screw LS9 (and LSA for the CTS-V) instead of the TVS...that must mean the TVS can hold its own. Magnacharger themselves claims to have made 950 hp with the 2300 variety (on a 434 @ 15psi). Reports suggest the TVS as designed on the ZR1 will do very well on a road race type application as well...offering less heat soak than what is found on other blower applications. I don't have a preference...just as long as they make dependable power, I'm for em' all...its just that so far, we only have rumors of a KB, while we actually have several production cars with the TVS already out, and their aftermarket blower already being advertised...So many times rumors take forever to come to market, and I for one, don't plan on waiting very long before my SS get boosted.

I contacted Eaton directly a few days ago. I asked about the LS9 S/C. They said it was developed for GM and is the property of GM....

I think we will have to wait for GM to release it for sale and tech numbers.
