Have a car we can add (stock bottom end)

ZoLOW / SUPERCHARGED (A&A T-TRIM) / 8lbs. / 635 / 540 / LS3 / 25K / 31.5K / NA / 91 / M6


It is my DD at the moment picking up another vehicle this winter or spring (good thing about TX can pretty much drive my vette year around without any weather issues) so it sees plenty of street use and take it out to play on the weekends when we have something going with our local group

When I drive mine I give it hell. Without going into detail it's see's a lot of rpm and often.

Exactly how I drive mine. I see 6700-6800 rpm in 3rd and 4th daily.

I think we should also put how much timing we are running. My tune is very conservative at 15* of timing on E85 + meth with 12psi. I'm at 719/618 like that. Some folks are running 18-20* of timing with that much boost and getting high 700's on rwhp. I may get a different tuner to tune my car.

I can add that if others can update their info. Unfortunately I don't know mine

i really think you all would have higher numbers if the supercharger wasnt belt driven.
I get asked all the time if I have a turbo. I always say "yes, a belt driven one".

I like low ET over high dyno numbers.... Thats where everything comes together

I run 20 * at 12 lbs, but wouldn't do that on a stock shortblock.

How about details on drivetrain modifications? ECS trans brace? Clutch? Upgraded transmission, differential, axles?

would it be too much to add a list for those that are running Nitrous as their power adder? I am running nitrous for now, but information for nitrous seems to be pretty limited for those of us that run nitrous.

I will be going supercharged eventually, so this info is very cool for me!

I already asked an admin to change the thread title, and in the initial post edited it for forced induction vs boost. Give me your info and I'll add it.

Cool, I have no info to add just yet, I'm still waiting on a nitrous tune and a switch to e85 tune, then I will be able to post my results!

Double spring and titanium retainers, and has seen around 15 10lb bottles through it. I think it likes it

Did you ever run the car with just the zr1 cam before the supercharger? If so, how much did it make n/a and on spray with that setup? I'm wanting to do the zr1 cam and spray it for now until I go supercharged.

I had
LS7 stock bottom end, A&A kit si trim, cam, heads made 705rwhp on 5.8psi
Lost a cam/lifter which wasn't tune/boost related.

Swapped in a livernois LSX427, ECS Ysi kit, etc etc
Made low 900s on 12psi on a slipping belt, Haven't dynoed it yet since I fixed that and a ton of other issues. ~5k miles on this setup no issues besides dumb little things not related to motor/boost.
