Which forced induction ?

I've been on this forum a couple of weeks and just registered today
I'm picking up a 2SS stick tomorrow .
What are your thoughts on forced indiction systems ? My brother says turbo it , He has a Turbocharged 2000 Z28 . I'm not really keen on that because of the underhood heat they generate but I am keen on the fact he can turn a knob , add race gas and get to another power level .
I do want 650 + at the crank .
What do you guys think and what are your experiences ?
Thanks for your input .

My first and only suggestion is that you spend some good time educating yourself on three types of F/I (PD S/C, Centri and Turbo). They are all great and after studying, and finding out the pros and cons, you'll make a better informed decision. Learn first then pull the plug.
My 2 cents! Good luck with your new baby!

I'm looking into the 650 RWHP and have talked with Hennessey, and Linkenfelter. You can go to their web sites, they have all the add-ons and pricing if they install. Looking at $20K min. I also talked with a company in the Chicago area and they'll be coming out soon with a turbo kit that sounds awesome. If you send the vehicle to one of the two noted above, make sure you discuss transporting your baby. Another costly adventure.

most of what your paying for with Hennessey and Lingenfelter is the name. You can piece together the same kits and save your self thousand of dollars. I have a Vortech kit with the V-3 supercharger, ARH long tubes and magnaflow mufflers and im making about 650 HP at the crank, only cost me about 8k as opposed to 20k

We've done many blowers / turbos , the 02 turbo Z 28 was all fabricated in house . I should have mentioned that .
I'm basically debating blower vs turbo and am anxious to get going on it .
Thanks , Jimmy

From what I have seen Lingenfelter is one of the first and only shops that will also include a completely forged internal engine with the 650 hp package. That is also under 20k and you also can get a 3 year 36,000 mile drivetrain warranty. Can't go wrong especially when and if you sell it. They are also the best engine builders out there.

There are many talented guys that can meet or exceed Lingenfelter quality .
I just had a 2009 Lingenfelter 650 ZO6 on consignment and had many expert tire kickers tell me why they wouldn't pay a premium for the LPE 650 pkg , they all basically wanted to rob it .
In most instances modified cars are harder to sell .

This was just my opinion and a result of weeks of internet research about different performance shops. Also the reason why my camaro is there now!! You asked what we think and what are our experiences so there is mine.

My 2 cents! Good luck with your new baby!

the three types of F/I are Turbocharge, Supercharge, and Nitrous.

Centrifugal chargers are superchargers.

If that's your concern...check out STS Turbo. They've got a system that seems right up your ally.

Good luck with it .
The LPE 650 we had was quite a car and nicely done , I know your car will be rocket .
My point was they are not the only ones capable and qualified , and that these modified cars only command premiums from hard cores like us .
Let us know when it's done and post photos .

Beautiful car! Congrats. As far as blower choice, try to find a car with a centri and a p/d or roots type blower and go for a ride. You know what the turbo will do. If you were a little closer, I'd give you a ride that would suck your eyeballs back in your head. You'd be a TVS 2300 fan in short order. The "fun" starts early in the lower rpm band and just keeps getting better until you let off. Power whenever you want it (no waiting for rpm to build) and OEM reliability..

Thanks men .
I'm gonna put a couple of miles on it to make sure all is well and then go to town .
My bro is lobbying heavily for the turbo but I'm leaning towards the Whipple , only problem is their unit is about 60 days away from what I've been reading .
This week I'm gonna make a couple of phone calls , then make a decision .
It seems no matter what method you use the cars are just insanely powerful . The LS3 is such a great engine .

You can't go wrong with a Magnacharger. I have the same car. Car drives like stock until I push past 2400-2500 rpm. Then all hell breaks loose. I went with ordering the kit and having it done locally with the stock magnuson tune. It runs great.

Thumbs up

Welcome 4Xchamp!! Another person from MA! Where'd you get your car, looks like Best Chevrolet in Hingham??
Anyways, congrats on the car and I'd say either turbo or Pro-Charger. I'm not much of a supercharger type guy, but a lot of people on here run the supercharger. Good luck and keep us posted!

i have found Nickey and Speed Inc in the Chicago area. i have no clue what Speed Inc has to offer, but i think Nickey is like a Hennessey....

if i'm gonna transport, it's going to Jannetty Racing.......period.

this is what i'll do if i ever get a S/C. if i'm not mistaken the maggie is 100% spooled at 2000rpm while the others are gradule over the entire rpm range.

If you will be happy with 525HP at the rear wheels, the Lingenfelter 570 package will work for you. I'm not exactly sure what the HP at the crank is, but it is somewhere around 600+?

The chasis dyno gave 525HP, and 492 Torque.
That was an extra 150HP over stock!!!
I'm really happy with those numbers for $10,995.
With WARRANTY!!!!
