GMPP super/turbo kit

I was wondering who would install a super/turbo if it was offered by GMPP and there was warranty available.

It would probably be a kit that had a pulley designed for only around 7psi so that the stock internals would be safe. Oh yeah. Just a nice, safe 20%-ish gain. Which, by the way, brings a total of 506hp on an LS3 Camaro.

Just food for thought.

Hard decision, the APS twin turbo system is sweet but a supercharger would be nice as well.

Yes, I would add one.

possible- yes...very smart on a stock engine - no lol

you could have the turbos located @ the exhaust tubes, then the supercharger on the block....2 pipes of forced air into 1 pipe then forced AGAIN into the block

i can't remember the magazine, but someone put an engine into a scion w/ 40 lbs of boost!

steel 4 cylinder...only made 800hp. was a nitto tires sponsored car.

also v8s are alot harder to build that kind of boost since they are movine alot more air, kinda like forcing water into a bag with a hole. except the v8's hole is 2-3x bigger.

I get it.

"Only made 800hp." I'm guessing you said that comparing to other 4cyls. like the SR20DET that is 'capable' of 1000hp?

im just saying Just since you can make 800hp with 9-10lbs in a LS3

with 40lbs you are making over 2000bhp closer to 2500bhp with an LSX block...

Oh, I see. I get the LSX example. Sorry, I was asking, cuz I'm still learning about tuning of any sort, haha.

Learning things every day.

Lol, speak of the devil. Taking that Charger name to new heights. It's a cool idea, it looks kinda nice, would be awesome to have, but yea, makes no sense when there's already an SRT8 Challenger and Charger.

SC most likely

I will most likely put a supercharger on mine when I get the money, although a really nice twin turbo set up like the ones on the holden posted in another thread would be really nice too.

Trust me, the new LS3 Camaro with 500+ rwhp after a power adder will smoke just about anything. With that much power you might be able to keep up with a $100k+ ZR1 which is 535rwhp stock.
