Who wants to get supercharged?

As many of you guys I am on the list to have one of the first Camaros off the truck.

I am looking to see who would want to get their car supercharged? I am thinking of going with an ATI Procharger as I had on my 99 T/A with awesome results. I am going to try and get a group purchase going ( I own a parts company). I am going to see if ATI will give us a good deal on the new system when released, if we can get 10-15 orders or so.

So I want to know who might be interested in getting in on a group purchase to get us all a great deal on a supercharger for these bad a$$ new cars. I would be willing to look into any other group purchases if you have ideas. Just post and let me know what you are looking for....

I am not on here to sell anything for my store, or to turn any profit whatsoever, I just thought we could get a group of enthusiasts together and try to save eachother some money!!!

What do you all think??

About how much do you think they would run?

I paid about 5k for my setup on my trans am. I would expect to be a little more expensive as that was years ago. I would like to think they will do the same thing for the camaro though...The package I bought had EVERYTHING you needed to finish the job in your own driveway. I paid for the install and was done for about 6k after dyno tuning. I will put in a call to ATI and see what they are expecting.
I would also expect about a 45% RWHP increase with a good dyno tune!!

I personally expect to run about 5 or 6 psi for the first year or so until I rebuild the bottom end, then I may increase to about 10psi. I will be driving the car, so I want it reliable and driveable.

I also considered a high HP N/A engine, but I am having a hard time deciding what I think will be more reliable and driveable...

Might check with Magnuson...Wm Holden commented quite awhile back they'll have a setup for the Camaro. I would like to see a rear inlet roots type that could probably easily be setup with cowl induction under that hood. If/when I see the day mine will be getting pressurized, it'll be with roots type.

The SS is already gonna be a tire shredder without it...BUT... It would be interesting to say the least.

If you guys want to try and see what Mag will build for the LS3...I would be happy to look into it also. But I would need to get 10 or so onboard for it. I think it could be a great system..I just have experience with the Procharger, that is why I brought it up.

I am looking for all of your thoughts, and if we can come to some conclusion, I will get on my dealers and wholesalers to see what I can do to get us a great deal.

I would love to supercharge mine if GMPP offers a kit.

A similar thread is available here.

I'm seriously thinking about it, my Camaro is not going to be my daily driver and I want to make a kick ass street machine out of it.

The problem with GMPP parts is getting a good deal. You have to set up a relationship with a dealer to be able to get anything done...I have tried, the dealers in my area were not interested.

I would be willing to check on Magnuson, ATI Prochargers, and say SLP long tubes (when available), LSX intakes, throttle bodies, I even have a guy who will build a stroker and install it, etc... Just private message me...But for this thread lets stick to Supercharging.

I just put in an e-mail to Magnuson and ATI, we will see who gets back to me and who can enlighten us about the plans for the Camaro....
PM me if you are interested in getting a group purchase going for this or other performance parts when they are ready.

That is 2....we are going to need no less than 10. If anybody is near Pittsburgh, PA...or wants to make the drive, I would be willing and able to assist in installation to help you save even more money.

Centrifugal superchargers suck. Just throwing that out there, go with Magnuson or Magnacharger who will also have a twin screw setup for Camaro.

From what have read , I'm sold on the Magnuson. Its supose to bybass and allow it to only draw less than 1 hp. Now that efficent. If you go, Magnuson count me in. Hell, isnt the larger one the one used on the ZR!? I'm going the L99 route, but I have not run nto anything that says it cant be done.
I'm Number 8 at my dealer for mine BTW

If they can give you special dealer pricing for a bulk order, it should save a significant amount. If they give you bulk pricing as a retail order, maybe not as much. Thoughts?

Maybe if a few of us that live not too far apart we can organize a weekend road trip to some place with a large garage/warehouse where we can all install together.
Or maybe a place with a Dyno where we can get some bulk dyno time to baseline before install, baseline after install, and then after fine tuning.
Just thinking out loud...

I am all for the group install. I actually have a couple places that coudl work local for me, or we could try to arrange something closer to a larger group of folks...

As for pricing..I am approaching people as a dealer so that I can get the best deal possible for us all. I am not going to mark up anything, as I want a system just as much as you all do.

Now I have heard from Procharger whom said we coudl try to work something out, and I am also in discussions with a well known F-body company who builds custom turbo setups who said we could also try to work something out. Would any of you be interested in either of those deals???

I can run both deals if I can get enough people for each...I would think 10 a piece would get us some good pricing cuts... Post on here, AND PM ME IF INTERESTED< THAT IS HOW I KEEP A LIST!!!!

I was going to opt for the 21" rims - but spending $4,600 is crazy.
I will put that towards a supercharger instead.

I also want to wait until I get the car break the motor in while it's natually aspirated.

Then I would think - according to my Chevrolet Parts Dept. - We will get a GM Perfomance Supercharger through GM??

Not sure - I work for the dealer so I get 10% over our cost
