D3 Supercharger for the V6 Camaro

Hello everyone. I spoke with an engineer over at D3 today about the possibility of a supercharger for the V6 camaro. For those who don't know D3 is currently testing a supercharger for the v6 Cadillac that uses the same motor in our V6 camaro. They said they are contemplating the idea, however they are unsure if there will be a great demand for it. He said that if we were interested in it, then we need to make our voices hear, he advised to either email D3 at info@d3cadillac.com or call them. So if interested let's start making it known.

There's not way I'll touch the motor until my warranty runs out. . . Way to damn many things can go wrong when you start Turboing or Supercharging motors.

so they wont if you wait till after the Warranty goes off? waiting to do something because your counting on it breaking your engine doesnt make sense. Either Way you are without a warranty.

^^^ yeah but having other problems unrelated to FI not being covered under warranty doesn't make sense to me, and I don't expect to have problems only running around 4psi on a sc but gm certainly will say they do when under warranty

If I was getting a V6 Camaro I'd be interested in a supercharger for it. But yeah I'm not getting a V6 Camaro...

Wonder what it would run?

This is an interesting question, what would a supercharged v6 pull in a quarter mile, estimates anyone.

What type of SC? Price range?

What sucks is that GM decided to give the 6 weaker trannys that are rated just over stock power. One would need to do a race build tranny. Funny thing my V6 had a race build after it went out.

I don't think there will be that much interest from the camaro side, but the cadillac side should add some sales. Together maybe it will be worth it. They need to put that engine in more cars so it's more common.

I see your point, but some domestic supercharger companies (vortech and procharger to name a few) actually warranty the drivetrain for up to 3 years.

Although you're talking about an inline 6 with forged internals.

Total guess here but mid to high 12's with exhaust and headers would be my guess,with cams and internals, who knows? There are some quick v6 Mustangs out there but alot depends on the type of SC. Roots blowers have alot more low range grunt and are more enjoyable on the street. Centrifugal are more similar to turbos but create higher peak hp and generally produce better track times.

Well the S197 (2005+) V6 Mustang has a huge aftermarket almost comparable to the GT. So with a better platform (304hp, DI, and VVT) I don't see why there wouldn't be people buying them. I also spoke to someone at Vortech and they said they definitely want to make one for the V6 mustang they're just trying to get around the high fuel pressure and CR of the DI engine.

It's not about the engine it's about who owns them. Typical camaro V6 owner doesn't have that kind of cash lying around. I can count on one hand how many FI 4th gen V6 fbodies I know. But then again it was all custom and required a ton of work. If there is a kit that's easy to bolt on for under $3k, you might have more interest.

i can just barely count them on 2 hands.....lol the 3800 motor is a badass piece of v-6 gm handiwork. and the s/c that was made for it was noice....lol

then again for turbo setups, im sure STS will have a rear mount setup available soon after the car is released.

well I would definitely be interested in one. My question is how different would it have to be to get the super charger to work on the camaro? they are the same engines but different engines bays. I might not even need a dedicated kit from them for the camaro. I could probably adapt the CTS one.
