    and for those who don't know, the ZL1 supercharger lid provides better cooling than the stock V cover.
    Well I guess GM noticed how many of these lids were being sold because on the new price tape (effective June 1st) they have gone up...my new discounted price is $351.81 for the lid and gasket (plus shipping)

    I'm surprised they waited this long. I would have expected a price increase on new orders early last month when the backordered lids started shipping again.

    Re: ZL1 supercharger lid

    I installed the blower lid last night which took the better part of 20 minutes with an electric screw driver and a socket wrench for the strut bar brace to replace. The ZL1 lid even comes with all the sensors and screws in place ready to be tightened. Very nice.

    When I closed the hood, the blower did rub one of the hood bracing budges under the fiber pad attached to the bottom of the hood.

    The size of the rub spot was @ 1/4" by 2 1/2" caused by the very front edge of the blower rubbing against the hood. I removed the padding with a "wonder Bar" commonly used in construction. Worked great for removing the round black plastic clips. Then used a cutting wheel to cut out a small square of the aluminum hood bulge where the rubbing occurred and reattached the fiber pad.

    Again, total installation, 20 minutes.

    BTW I reused the longer, stock connecting hoses to connect the ZL1 lid and purchased another one just like it from the dealer because it had 90 degree bends at the ends which are needed to connect the new lid. Total cost of the new hose $42.00. What a rip off for a 2" hose. But it fit better than just getting a straight 5/8" hose and bending it.

    Al in all, a very simple swap. I don't notice a power gain but if I dynode the car, I might see it.

    Just a quick FYI post

    Re: ZL1 supercharger lid

    I am not exactly sure what the IAT2 temp range is but, if it is around 150F it would only take around a 25F temperature drop to achieve 20hp. On the LT4 the GM engineer said the air temp coming out of the blower was 150F lower than the air coming out of the blower on the ZR1. That will be big for power and heat soak on the intercooler. Sounds like these guys at GM are really doing the home work on the next V and Z06.

    Don't use the sensors on your ZL1 lid - swap over the originals to avoid potential issues as not all sensors are the same.

    I am using the same sensors that came with the new lid which look the same as the original ones. No problems here.

    Can you post a pic of what hose you had to buy? I bought the lid but have not installed it yet and want to make sure I have everything on hand when I do this.

    Thanks,

    Re: ZL1 supercharger lid

    I don't know how to post pictures but its real straight forward. There are two hoses connecting the lid to feed lines on the passenger side of the engine bay. One comes from a coolant fill neck and another which is longer connects to a hard tube on the passenger fender. That's the one you need to get.

    Don't forget to pick up a qt of coolant before starting the project. To fill the new intercooler brick you need about 1 1/2 cups of coolant.

    So I'm guessing the LS9 (ZR1) uses a completely different blower and the lid off those doesn't fit the LSAs?
