Gm performance lsa supercharger

I just bought a new 2ss camaro and ordered the gm performance supercharger for the dealer to install. They just called me and said the kit isn't ready for sale yet because they are waiting for a contract for one of the components. Jegs and summit are both listing this kit for sale but keep moving back their shipping date. Does anybody know whats going on with these kits and how long before they are being shipped? Dealer says they can't get an answer.

Do a Maggie or one of the other better options IMO.

$9008 installed with zl1 fuel pump. I chose that one because it comes with the 5 yr 100,000 mile warrantee. Dealer said any other model would void my car warrantee.

Nope. The LSA S/C is a 1.9L not the 2.3L like the maggie or Eforce. Smaller blower, smaller intercooler. Atleast buy the eforce and their warranty, or the maggie with their warranty.

The LSA, and the LS9 are Eaton superchargers. The LSA is the 1.9 (1900), and the LS9 is the 2.3 (2300). The basic superchargers are all made by Eaton, and sold/licensed by GM, and Magnuson. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Correct statement from VADER above. ZL1 has electric steering so you must add a steering pump to the SS, different AC compressor and brackets and cooling lines, different alternator, plus other hoses, intercooler, pump, belts, and tuning, etc.

I have have had my ZL1 blower on my car since Feb. Ordered by and installed by and tuned by ADM Perf in Lewisville. He had the clear vision to order parts last year as he saw the upcoming interest in a GM factory blower. BTW, it uses only one 8 rib belt to drive the blower. 6 rib belt drives water pump, alternator, and pwr steering pump. And a third small belt to drive AC compressor. If you break a blower belt you can still drive the car home; good GM factory engineering. I had been waiting for a blower that was unique and different from all the others and this was perfect for me. Quiet, dependable, with great performance. Puts out safe low boost on pump gas and no worries about belt slippage.

I bet it doesnt. Just uses a different belt than the factory lsa I would guess which would have been the smart thing to do.
