LSA conversion

Took my 2010 SS to Adm Performance yesterday for Andy's conversion kit install and looks like it will be on the dyno tomorrow.
This is a completely stock build other than the Borla exhaust and some suspension goodies because it's a DD.

Results are in

Very excited to see all went well other than I need some better gas. Keep in mind this is an upgrade from a completely stock engine with 26,500 miles and borla's touring exhaust. Even the intake is the stock ZL1 box. It's very quiet inside but now you can hear the engine making power and no whine form the SC.
Andy did a super job on the change over too, with a clean professional feel to everything. Know one touches this car again but ADM.
Thanks again Andy for a job well done.

It's in the garage now. Drove it home yesterday evening. It's so quite but it sounds like there's something different under the hood. Kinda like an older '70's police car (not that i spent a lot of time in one.....). You know there's something there. Even Andy said something about it. I never believed that the noise coming out of the tail pipe was a sign of performance. It's going to surprise a lot of people.

I looked at you build hammdo, very nice. I like that hood too. I think more people are going to start putting these LSA superchargers on because of the GM factory quality, fit and finish. They seem to work well with the LS3.

100% agree with you! I chose it for that reason and, Andy has a super deal on the kit WITH the supercharger! I love mine -- its so awesome... factory fit and parts availability!

ADM does superior work. We are lucky to have quite a few high quality shops to go to! ADM architected this kit so who else will know it better!

I'm surprised I don't see more LSA conversions.....

These are great superchargers and the GM build quality is top notch.

Very clean install by the looks of the pictures.

What did all this set you back if you don't mind me asking?

I'd like to share with my other Camaro club members who are looking to FI.

I think everyone's build will be different according to their needs and the cost will be different for each (I don't think he would like me quoting prices for him) but I'll say this; I thought that a supercharger was out of my price range for a long time and I've checked on a lot of different options. But with all the used LSA blowers out there that GM is recalling and the mechanics are selling, and Andy's kit that uses the original front running gear, I found it possible to go that way and spend far less than the big name aftermarket brands out there. The big bonus is I finished with a GM blower on a GM motor in a GM car. Bonus-bonus-bonus

If you want to go the SC way, call Andy at ADM and he will give you a price for what you want to do and then you can decide for yourself if it makes since.

I'm pretty sure the the only thing that changes along the belt is the tensioner. That's part of the kit.
