Well guys, as most of you know, I'm now attending Wyotech.

Ordering a Vortech centrifugal supercharger for my 2010 Camaro SS this weekend. Will let you guys know how it turns out, and post some sweet pictures.

By the way, it's awesome we have an official car forum now.

Did you want self lubricated? Means you have to change the supercharger oil like every 7k miles.

Yes, saves me from having to tap into the oil pan. I don't mind changing the oil on it.

Oil changes on twin screws are pretty easy. Not sure about a centri but I bet it's cake. Lot easier than tapping the pan I agree.

Should have the supercharger install complete today. Just as soon as we get this harmonic balancer mounted on here, and that thing has been a nightmare.

Well, it took a few more days than expected, but the supercharger is installed. Will be doing fine tuning, and putting the nose back on today. Will post pictures as soon as it's done.

By the way - it sounds wicked. (nana2)

It would be nice to see how it fairs against a stock General Lee.

Maybe a little dirt road racing, maybe a little flying? ;)

I self lubricate daily, and change napkins like every 7 hours (nana2)

I'm waiting here till I get pics. NAO!

This is one of the rare new cars I really like the style of inside and out. So don't leave me hanging.

Looks nice.

What is with the charge pipe disaster? You should also use T-Bolt clamps instead of worm drive ones as they provide better and more reliable clamping force. They also don't chew up the silicone over time.

That's what the charge pipe is suppose to look like. It's the only way to fit it inside the Camaro to the positions it needs to go to. Trust me, there's no where else those pipes could have done.

Everything was done with a Craftsman toolset, and a 14mm allen wrench, and torque wrench.
And since I was doing this in the parking lot at Wyotech I didn't really have time to switch out the clamps. Plus, it has a warranty so I'm not worried about the clamps.

I have to wait for a new belt before I can get on it since when we first put on the crank pulley it didn't line up with the charger pulley, so I frayed one rib on my belt. To fix the issue we put some washers on the bolts to separate the crank pulley from the harmonic balancer enough to not fray the belt.

Why do you have so many clamps and silicone where it looks like it could have been done with a slightly longer pipe and a reducer.

Because it has to form around several metal, and immovable pieces of the car to be able to run where it does.

That's a second support for the system.
