Do you think Z28 will come with TVS2300 or TVS1900?

The OEM CTS-V comes with TVS1900 and LSA engine. Does anyone know if the Z28 will get the same TVS1900 or the TVS2300?

you know, i'll be laughing if the z28 ends up being a N/A monster like the ls7, but it'll most likely end up with a blower like everyone else thinks

They're trying to compete with GT500, so they'll stay with a blower. It would be ashamed if they went with 1900 than 2300. It just cuts the growth.
Secondly, they won't be selling a lot of CTS-Vs, so the Z28 is a perfect channel to eat up the extra engine units.

My opinion is they will use the S/C from the LS9. Why?
1. - LSA S/C housing is too big without some kind of modification to housing or firewall and wipers. See Robin Lawrence's car. 2. - GM has put the LS9 S/C kit available through it's Performance Parts Catalog so it is readily available and does not require any modification to housing or firewall. Much easier to install and they have tons of tuning data available to to them from the LS9 build and certification.

If I had to guess I would say it would come with the 2300.

But the GT500 comes with the 1900 so you never know.

LMAO!!! The gt500 does NOT come with the TVS1900! It comes with the OLD eaton m122 2.1L and still makes 550hp. The TVS upgrade puts us at 660hp

So far no one knows for sure which blower they will use.

However, the 1900 is more efficient than the 2300 and can make the same power as the 2300. Look at posts from Robin and blown chevy. They know what they are talking about.

And the 1900 will fit in the camaro with a different housing I believe.

I'm excited to see if this re-engineered plenum will be generic or Camaro-specific.

I wouldn't be surprised if it has a cross-breed between the LS9 and LSA. Take the LSA and give it the LS9's blower and retune it so that it is more or less halfway between the two for power

Uncle stated in another thread somewhere that the upper plenum from LS9 will fit LSA straight across.

However, I'm hoping if does come with the 2300. It'd be nice to have the headroom. There's no doubt, in my mind, the 1900 will be good for my goals, but I'd rather not have to lean on it so hard.

Do I think GM will use the 2300? No. After releasing the LS9 kit, though, it makes me wonder... However, with no warranty, and as much a tuner kit as that package is, I still think the 1900 will make it into Z28.

PLEASE, GM - GET THE 2300 IN Z28

I think GM will get a lot of criticism and disappointment if they start off the Z28 line with 1900 with less room to grow than 2300. To get more juice out of 1900, you have to spin it more which produces more heat. Look at Whipple 2.9, a lot less heat than 2300 for the same air volume. 1900 is good for up to 9psi without real heat issue, but your growth is gone. Is that what GM is thinking, blocking the consumers of pushing Z28? I don't know, but it certainly marks a negative point in consumers view.

GM shouldn't worry about loosing ZR1 or Z06 or CTS-V to Z28. Each one has it's own customers. I hope GM would come out with a pleasant surprise than a disappointing one.

I'll bet on the 1900 .. since that is what is on the LSA and the LSA is what this car is getting as far as any of us know ..

That is wrong. The 2013 GT500 uses the TVS supercharger.
