Question cylinder cut off question

We now that the L99 v8 has it but I was wondering if they bring out the Z28 could they use the cylinder cut off on a V8 with a supercharger on it?

I don't think anyone but a GM engineer could give you a good answer on that. Anyone else would just be speculating.

My speculation is that it possibly could be available...lol I know thats a big help... but really we don't even know if there will even be a supercharged Z-28 yet. so that is the bigger question...

Could they do it? Sure they could.

Realistically, would they put it on a high horsepower limited production version? I doubt it.

I believe Magnuson (?sp?) and Haddad Motorsports was trying to finalize PCM tuning with the AFM on their G8 with a 1900 on it. I'll see if I can post the link...

There's some b*tching back and forth that I know nothing about, however, this is post # 18 in the thread.

Guys please don't get caught up with the madness of which blower is going to make more power. The limitation exists in the car itself. Believe me this blower system is more than capable of making enough power to destroy just about every component on this car.

and soon enough we aim to prove that to you.

BTW we are making a smog legal, 30mpg , daily drivable, 460rwhp with this car at 6.4 lbs of boost. Wait till we get headers on it and push it to a whole 8 lbs of boost.

The only people who should even be waiting for the 2300 or talking about bigger blowers are those with plans of tranny and motor build ups.

For those of you who are ready for all that, we would be more than happy to start taking deposits on said build ups. Please give us a call with at least $20,000 on hand and we'll get the party started for you.

I've got at least 2 guys working the phones at the shop, so please don't everyone call at once for our stage 3 package.

Thanks
Mike Haddad

Of course they could, but why would they? It's been said that superchargers and AFM still get along nicely (unlike AFM+manual transmission), but does anyone who buys a 500+ hp car really care about fuel economy? Sure it would be nice to have 22 mpg on the highway with that, but I think most will understand the consequences of owning such a car. Besides, insurance is a bigger problem at that point than gas consumption.
