Default 2010 Camaro Supercharged

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.

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.

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

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