Default Supercharger info

Hi Everyone......first post on the forum after lurking around for quite some time.

I've got a 2016 C7 Stingray Convertible that I bought new in November 2015 that has about 5000 miles on it so far. I wish now I would have got the Z06, but didn't. I'd like to convert it to a wanna be LT4, so I'm looking at adding a supercharger. I've read quite a bit about the Edelbrock TVS2300 package. Any thoughts from people that may have this unit installed on their car? Pro/Cons? I'm in SE Michigan and want to get it installed, so if anyone knows of any GOOD shops that do this, please let me know.

Spend a little time reading through this form section https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...n-nitrous-173/

You can a learn a lot by reading through some of those threads. Folks have been bolting on superchargers to C7s for about 5 years now. Spend 3 hours and you’ll decide pretty quick. There’s a ton of useful information there.

I have the stage 2 Edelbrock E force kit 15701. I've had it for 2 years and couldn't be happier. I make 571whp on a mustang dyno. I couldn't be happier, it's been flawless. I went 11.30s in the 1/4 in 92* on run flats (traction limited). I've since switched to Toyo R888Rs and in sure it will break into the 10s this spring in cold air.
Edelbrock tech support has been excellent and given the choice I'd do it all again. The installation instructions were spot on and everything fit perfectly. The car is a blast to drive!!

I wasn't thrilled with the red powder coating it comes in so I had the red parts powder coated black.

I have the stage 2 Edelbrock E-Force on my car. Like BlueDevilZ51, I have had zero problems with it in the 2 years that is has been on the car. The power is great, the car drives like stock (off boost), and the supercharger is near silent. If it matters to you the gas mileage is unaffected.

I bought A&A and it’s perfect.It acts A little like A turbo.I don’t have trouble getting traction off the line.With A Z06 if you go all
out at the line all it wants to do is spin.

If I may ask what did you pay for this including install?

Look up MJD performance. They are really close to you too! Let me know how it goes!

I got headers and tuning there and they were great.
