ECS Blower Build

I've got an appointment at FSP on May 13th to have the following installed:

ECS SC1500 Blower Kit:
NOVI 1500 polished head unit
Billet aluminum supercharger mounting bracket assembly
6061 aluminum ducting
Heavy duty belt tensioner with double walled ball bearing idlers
Tial Q 50mm Blowoff Valve
Braided Stainless steel oil drain line
Crank pin kit and new GM Crank bolt
High-flow, reusable air filter
ECS fuel pump voltage booster and 60# injectors (not using)
PCV oil separator
ECS Valve Cover Breather
Air to air intercooler
NGK TR-6 spark plugs
160 degree thermostat
FSP Blower Cam
Trick Flow .650 lift springs w/Titanium retainers
Comp Cams Magnum pushrods
C5R timing chain and upgraded tensioner
Melling high volume oil pump
Livernois ZL1 Dual Fuel Pump Assembly
ID 850 Injectors
ECS Meth Kit
Stainless Works 2" Long Tube Headers
High Flow Cats
Stainless Works 3" Retro Styled Chambered Cat-back


He'll tune it to whatever the fuel system will allow for without pushing it. Now shooting for the 720-750 rwhp range with a street tune.

This will be my first experience with a modern car built for power. I've had several street/strip and race cars over the years, all from the 60's and 70's era.

I'll update the thread with dyno numbers and pictures after it's done.

I'm also looking forward to meeting up with Camaro guys in the Tampa area once I have something to brag about

I will also have some used performance take off parts for sale (check the Member's Classifieds in the near future) that will be available after May 13th, including my CAI, underdrive pulley and XS Power exhaust.

You have some pretty nice parts about to go on. But when you say stock fuel system, your atleast adding a BOOST A Pump or something of that sort? Also stock injectors?

Looking forward to seeing numbers with this build.

Yes, the ECS kit comes with a Kenne Bell Boost-a-pump and bigger injectors.

You'll have a good time with the car when it's all said and done, and will by no means be disappointed. Congrats.

Skip the intake and the cat back and put that money into a fuel system.

Fuel system wise we are good for now. Has the Mototron injectors in the kit already also. Our goal is to the mid 600 range, I made the same power with the ECS kit/Blower Cam/ARH LTs on the same fuel setup before I took the plunge into methanol and then went 9's with the base kit!

Stay tuned as we get into the build in a couple of weeks!

The cat-back is for sound, not power. I am on the fence about adding a meth kit to the build, which would help out in the Florida heat. Matt, I'll call you about it when you get back from your tuning trip. Going to rearrange other priorities to try to afford the meth kit This is turning into a much larger project than when I first started talking to you about new headers and cat-back! Damn, you're good.

You were saying you want to play in the big boy territory?

That is with a N/A specific camshaft

This is by no means a cheap hobby. It gets expensive real fast, but the end results are great!!

So Matt talked me into a meth kit for maintaining hp levels and safety factor during heat soak in the hot Florida summer plus a few extra hp on the dyno. We're shooting for 680 rwhp. I know that's not a guarantee, and the final number will be based on what we can get and still be safe and conservative.

The install is just 2 weeks out now....

Hope this helps Todd,
Water Methanol Injection, is when you mix water and Methanol and then inject it into the fuel/air mixture on the way to the combustion chamber. Water/Methanol Injection provides "Chemical Intercooling" inside the cylinder. By injecting water and methanol in a finely atomized spray, the water is able to evaporate under the high temps of a firing cylinder, and when the water evaporates, it takes heat with it. The methanol also has a cooling and octane boosting effect as it burns.

OP you have a quality kit and quality parts bring installed and tuned my a quality shop!!

Your definitely doing it right!!!

Is that a picture of a melling 10295? Why that one and not a 10296? Just asking...

This car looks familiar

You will not be sorry! I loved every minute of this car, and driveability (thanks to Matt's tuning) was spot on, drove the same if not a little better then the prior Cam only I was running.

You've made a wise decision my friend. I was would definately add the meth if for nothing else then peace of mind.

Chris

Last minute changes -

Nixing the FAST 102 and adding the Livernois Dual ZL1 Fuel Pump and upgrading the injectors to ID850's. The target is now 750 rwhp, with room to grow fuel wise if I build the bottom end to handle more boost down the road.

The build is still on schedule for next week. The car is currently at the local Chevy dealer getting the trunk re-painted due to the spoiler rubbing through to the primer in several spots. You would have thought that the 2011 model year would have this issue fixed.

Gonna be a nice build. Good move on not doing the fast intake. Totally not worth it on a FI setup.

The FAST intake was added to the build when we were just talking cam and headers. Then it evolved into adding the ECS blower kit and I never really gave much thought to the intake (not being worth much power since I am limited by the fuel capacity and stock short block and not what the blower can put out). When I decided to upgrade the fuel system above the base ECS kit, some unnecessary things had to go to keep it within budget.

The FAST will definitely add some gains don't get me wrong.. But for the project, the other upgrades are worth it before adding a FAST!
