Okay, having re-read this whole thread, the ONLY thing I am concerned with is......
Quote:


Nor is there typical supercharger whine-the high-pitched, whizzing sound emanating from a supercharged engine as the rotors spin furiously. The four-lobe rotors help lower noise radiating from the supercharger case as much as 10 decibels, and sound pressure is nearly identical whether or not the supercharger is generating boost. During CTS-V development testing on Germany's 13-mile Nurburgring race course, onlookers were convinced that the LSA had no supercharger, even when it was running at wide-open throttle.
So are you telling me I wont fekkin hear it? I have wanted a supercharged car all my life.....and the one that comes along that I want, I wont be able to tell?!!

If you check out the videos we have of the ZL1 lapping the 'Ring, you can hear it. They must have taken out some sound-deadening for the Camaro application.

Oh you'll hear it! The V has all sorts of baffles on the intake and sound deadening elements on it to keep it quiet. The V guys who have put a CAI on the car can hear the blower a lot more easily.
You gotta know that the ZL1 will be louder than the V!

Best regards,

Elie

We're on the same team, so many thanks from the southwestern US

I'll throw a pulley on there for some more whine, LOL.

Heres an exploded view of both the ZL1 and CTS-V LSA engines for comparison.

Is the Top Blower cover different for hood clearance or...?
And the exhaust manifold is different, why?

Thanks.

More efficient. My guess is they are trying to get more power (and sound) from the ZL1 than the quiet V
