Maybe once it's off of its factory warranty I'll pull the trigger on one.
Since powertrain warranty is 5/100k that is a long wait. I would wait a maybe 5k miles or so, if it is gonna have an engine problem it will come up early or late in its life. The supercharger won't effect the warranty on most other components of the car. A buddy has one on his Corvette and has had some minor wheel sensor problems that GM fixed without hassle

Can you tell me the total weight of the components that are being added for this supercharger?

Thanks, looks great. I really like the black version. For some reason I hate chrome on anything but a stripper pole

Nice looking setup. I could do without the chrome as well, maybe save some $$ there too. If you keep the boost low enough, you can go with the blower on a daily driver - like my SSEI. There is nothing like a supercharger.

Too bad you have to have that secondary belt setup but hey it gets the job done.

I'm thinking a smaller one for the V6 would be very sweet - maybe add 60+ HP. Ya baby !!

The reliability and daily drivability of the maggie is a real key feature to the added 100 plus hp added...

In addition to the added power that shows up on the dyno....Can you also fill us in on what the expected added maintaince might be ...(FOR A DAILY DRIVER) so figure throughout the life of the vehicle..ie...100K miles..)

Other than tires..

TiA and its awesome that the new supercharger fits under the camaro hood without having to replace it...

I'm betting 100 rwhp over stock motor.... for the supercharger dyno numbers and if the cars reliabile....without belts flying off like some competitors ....Its better to have the hundred ponies without...any reliability issues to consider..

So while we wait for the dyno numbers....Fill us in on the added maintaince issues that this supercharger might require...(not a flame but an honest concern for many)

Whats the Maggie warranty cover and not cover..?

Question, will there be an optional TVS1900 kit available for the SS in the future? I don't need or want to make huge power and would like to save some money.

Like JBsC6 said, a reliable 100 rwhp would make me happy.

Impress them with the performance and the customers will follow. If you don't someone else will. I think they call that marketing? There will be unchartered waters for this car. If Ford is looking at an ECO-TECH twin turbo 4 for the Mustang, then it would be natural to do a blower for the V-6.

The one thing I have learned in this business is 1% of the people that said they want it will actually buy it. With 100+K going into development, 1% of 100 is a risky equation. I am pushing the issue.

I dont want to put one in my car right away, I'll probably wait at least 6 months after I get it.

Maybe even longer if this wasnt a first year production car, and people had it in their cars already I wouldnt wait. But as things are I dont want to risk GM having kinks and bugs in this car. and screwing myself over.

Instead of complaining about the price,
I think everyone should be celebrating the fact that the 2010 Camaro has been available for only a matter of DAYS and ALREADY there is a supercharger kit about to be released.


Although I am STILL waiting for my questions to be properly addressed,
I gotta defend the OP when he deserves it.

That's smart! I know this car will have bugs the first year, like any other car, and if you have and F/I on, the dealer will immediately blame the F/I addon as the cause or giving you $hit because it's moded. Although the LS3 is a great engine in Corvette, but with added weight in Camaro, you're putting more stress on engine and rear-end when adding F/I.

+1
I fully agree, we should all be excited that we have this SC already available to us. Just gives us all some more lawns to mow this summer to save up that 7400!

Please let us know how much the unit and other components weigh. I think the position of this supercharger is superior to many others because it is as far back as possible. A buddy of mine put a competitors on his corvette and it put a lot of weight way up forward. I would also be interested to see what this kit does to the balance of the car. I suspect it will be better than most.

Please post weight information when you can.

Thanks

Tom
