Supercharger???

Wow!! Way too many to chose from. Who has the most efficient? Who make the most power @ the same boost levels? I do like the looks of the Whipple and have always liked the centrifugal chargers. I ran a D1 back in the late 90's and it made some killer power. Thanks for any info helping me decided.

Don't know much about the others but I recently had mine installed. Best thing I ever did. I think there are pro's and con's to each type of supercharger. I personally like how the Magnuson is similar to how the stock ZL1 is set up.

If you want efficiency and most power then a D1SC is the ticket.

Unless you want to go turbo, then it kills all the blowers for less money.

If you want a top mount, the Whipple 2.9L would be the most efficient compared to TVS 2300 variants.

True but he asked about blowers.

Efficiency would require something not driven by a belt. But if you have too, then the correct answer is ECS.

Only 2 out of the top 30 on the power adders fast list are using turbos. What does that tell you? Turbos make great power but they are peaky. Look at their dyno sheets. The superchargers will have a nice flat torque curve, not a spiked mountain top. Choose your forced induction based on how the car will be used. Street or track? Cruise or show?

The ECS kit makes great power....made 625hp/609tq on my LS3 / stock besides ARH headers/cats, NO meth...and that's through a 9" rear w/ 4.11's (#'s would be higher w/ the stock rear).

I have seen the ECS kit and do like that setup. They are only 30 mins. from me. The car is just for the street, have 2 drag cars already. Turbo's make great power, but not to hip on the kits that are available for the Camaro. I would think there would be a good amount of lag in the lower RPM range.

It all depends on what you are going to do with the car and how much power you plan on making. I feel the roots style is better if you want to stay under 700rwhp. Over that a procharger hands down. We have built a ton of 2010+ camaros and the roots style blowers feel WAY faster than the procharged set ups. Feel free to stop by the shop and i will show you around. We have 5-6 in there now and a few getting blowers.

I like the D1SC and was thinking of going with that kit, but when I called Procharger they told me there was no kit for a 2013 model as of yet.

Is that because they have blowers or because they have the money to justify paying more for the same results?
