Should still be the crankshaft driving the supercharger.

I'll chime in here and infer that the supercharger was installed on the G8GT's L76, not an LS3. I don't think a stock LS3 would put out under 300 to the wheels like the installers were saying.

The eaton TVS is an even better blower than the 122.

Forged pistons people!

The cast aluminum pistons are the only weak link in the LS3 when adding forced induction...

It has been proven that you can take an ls3 quite a ways before needing forged pistons.

yeah... and even if you go that far, just order the ones from the LSA... they're specifically built for supercharged LS3s!

6 or so should be fine .. now do some forged internals and turn up the boost and we can make some real numbrs

Forged pistons actually set you back a bit in horsepower. You will probly need the bigger blower to make it worth while.
