The Eaton Option

Alright, lets get down to it right away. This is just a poll to determine how many people would seriously purchase a Roots Style SC developed by Eaton. We all know such a development depends largely upon market demand. Please share your thoughts and concerns, we will also be trying to get Eaton to view this thread periodically as well. I also want everyone to remember that these prices are in no way based upon tooling and development. This poll is to show manufactures that the market for this type of product is more like 5000+ instead of around 500.

[I][COLOR="Red"]
Stage 1
A 40% power boost from a bolt on Roots Supercharger w/tune for around $5k.
[COLOR="Red"/][I/]

Thank you for your support.

I won't be doing ANY forced induction until after my warranty period, or at least a few years after purchase, but when I do it would definitely be a roots-type blower. Whether its Eaton, Magnacharger, whatever... it doesn't matter to me, but I'd definitely rather have a roots-type blower over any other setup.

P.S. - A TVS1650 would be awesome. :wink wink:

That is what I would prefer... I might have to go turbo if they don't step up and produce one though.

Yeah, I prefer turbo. Would have bought one by now...if there was one. But I'm willing to keep my options open...

You could count me in in about 4 years and two months. Would rather go with this setup over anything else. $5k is a really reasonable price point IMO.

by now if a company is going to make a thread like this it is redundant. This whole forum is dealers asking if people want it. People talk about it, dealers don't make it, then other dealers come in. This seems more like a tool for getting preorders instead of actually seeing if people want chargers because even before "there are a lot of responses" companies already have prototypes in progress..


I mean there are threads where people are still responding to, and the company only checks it once a month lmao...

Are there any existing Roots style superchargers that use direct injection? Would the system have to be modified any to miss the injectors? I cant remember how far to the side they are.

I'll probably be going Turbo...But, from the manufacture's point of view... I don't think anyone is making anything cause everyone is waitin for their warranty to run out... So I guess they may be thinking...why build one now if no one is gonna buy it now. But..I think that if they build one, some people will get it even before their warranty runs out...including me

I understand everyones concern across the board. Its like a tease game. I don't know for sure but the last time the instry tried this was probably the 80's. Anyone know for sure? The point is that the platforms they had to work with for V6's before this were really crap, they were not even worthy of competing anywhere in any market world wide. The only reason people bought them was because they were still Camaro's. They averaged what? 180hp, if that. Caddy couldn't do it because that name has never rested in the same arena than the Camaro. An Morehead is right, there are several companies with SC prototypes. But, past woes have them nervous an consumers are concerned with cost vs. value.
This is why I think now is the time to change the industry mentality, because this platform is the most outstanding V6 to come out of America in a long time an the Camaro is the car to lead the charge. But if no one says anything here or to the company then nothing will happen, again.

This V6 platform needs to be tested and used to its maximum capacity. There are old imports with less displacement and worse engineering with direct bolt-on kits available. It's ridiculous. We have the best product, but we don't have the support yet.

The Camaro has the potential to dominate 2 separate markets. It can walk over cars in the pony class and above with the right aftermarket parts. We've seen this repeatedly in our membership. The Camaro can also dominate the 300-hp range with the right support. It might not seem as dominant to people who focus only on GTs and R/Ts, but the less powerful V6s are up against top tier vehicles from all over the world. 300 horses is as far as many companies go, and Chevrolet should fight above them at what level they deem unattainable or undesirable for whatever reason as well as on their level. Let's make our LLT-powered beasts tear up some fully loaded imports.

Let's make every Camaro a Camaro worth fearing. All we need is a tune so we can get started with what could someday be the classic V6 Camaro, the one that started GM's tradition of dominating all classes, from LS to SS. Let's one day look back on Camaro V6s as dangerous. Talk about them as if any V6 Camaro could have 800 horses and slaughter anything. It's possible. We just need some aftermarket support. Who wants to be the first company to slice into this massive pie of sales?

If it's Eaton, I'll take it. Give me some boost!

Show me 5000 and we will make your supercharger. FYI Magnuson is the Aftermarket arm of EATON. EATON will not look at anything less than 10,000 units.
