supercharged emblem placement

I see this has been asked a few times before, but thought I'd get some more opinions. I have two options I can think of: emblem on the fender or emblem on the rear. Here's a couple of pics. What do ya think? The white backing peels away and it'll just be the letters when I finally put it on. I already have 6.2L emblems on the hood, so that spot is taken. The last pic isn't my car, but it's a bit clearer than mine picture. Thanks

I always like it on the hood on both sides of the bulge. Out of the options shown, why not place on either side next to Camaro, and a third abocve or below the SS on the trunk.

For reference, here's a cowl pic (not mine). I like it there too, but I would have to take off my "6.2L" emblems and maybe put them somewhere else. I don't want to go all emblem crazy, but these are nice and simple. I have two of them, but might only use one if I put it on the rear.

I would keep it off, makes the car look stock, then you can surprise the rice burners. On the track of course...

Yeah, I do sort of like the "sleeper" idea, but this is my first blown car. I'm so psyched about it, I just wanna slap that badge on there

Leave it off and surprise them. Let the whine do the advertising.

Edit: just read 2014camaro's post. What he said.

I think it looks really good on the rear, like on the pic of the red's placement. Under the Camaro lettering on the sides looks too junky . It looks like it came supercharged from stock with the placement on the rear.

I agree a little, and too when they here the whine it's kind of like "Is that? Was that? That aint stock." When I'm at the track and I hear a turbo or a SC on a car that didn't come that way it usually catches my attention.

I like that

Anyway, thanks for all the input, everyone. I decided to put it on the back. I guess if I change my mind later, I can always take it off. They came in a pair, so I have a "backup" emblem in my parts inventory now.

Good choice, i put mine in the same spot. I think I'm going to take it off though. I like it being a sleeper.

Looks good there. Like others said i prefer the Sleeper look and take all badging off.

I removed both camaro emblems on the side and the SS emblem on the back. I too have a supercharger but i like it when i give it a little gas and i get the shock and awe look when the supercharger screams back at them!!.....They had no idea

Thanks. I like it there so far. It's nice to be able to remove it fairly easily. I also like the idea of a sleeper, but I guess I'd have to remove the SS emblems, too. Even then, most people just see the new Camaros and assume they're fast, so I don't know if it could ever be a true sleeper. Now if I put a blower on my Jeep Liberty, that would be funny

Definetly on the cowl. I have the 6.2l on there like you do now (see pic) but if I was lucky enough to get a blower installed they'd come off in a heartbeat and "SUPERCHARGED" would go on.
