A pal of mine came upon a stash of brand new superchargers for the STSv....just curious if there is any interest/need for NIB superchargers.....

A group buy maybe???

Count me in

What's the price?

I could have 1 ported, polished and all the bells and wistles, and one left stock. How cool would the engine look with a polished blower on top.

Talking to the guys over at D3 cleaning up the blower alone will only give 25 -30hp alone. The only way to get significantly more torque out of our engines is by overspinning the blower and injecting methanol/water into the intake of the blower to cool off the compressor blades.

Do the new blowers wera out blades like the old ones? Over time they got less efficient and produced less PSI and had to be rebuilt. The big B&M's had teflon ribs that could be replaced.

While I'd like to have a spare blower also, if this is true it makes me wonder what good a factory or CPO warranty is if there are no superchargers in the GM inventory for warranty repairs should someone need a new one. I already read here there may not be OEM replacement hoods either. Am I misreading this stuff? Seems crazy to have a car only two years old you can't get parts for.

LITTLEELVISDAN

By Federal law GM has to produce and/or supply parts for 10 years after the last production car leaves the assembly line. Don't worry

Hello everyone. Well first off let me apologize for the length of time it has taken to respond to this thread. I take care of a few race cars/teams calibration needs and this season has caught me off guard with my work load. I have also taken on some racing boats this year…what was I thinking there is not enough hours in the day for all this!!
I promise to make time for this endeavor with the blowers and will do my best to respond as quickly as possible.
Here is the story behind the blowers:
As most all of you know the financial troubles GM has gotten themselves into over the past year. The “bean counters” (don’t mean to offend) have subsequently ordered the “thinning” of the company which translates to get rid of everything that is possible in the surplus areas. It is usually true for them to cover the possible warranty parts issues for 10 years but from the warehouses full of auction parts I have seen it is truly amazing what is getting dished off. I have a few associates that base their salaries off of moving these parts from surplus or auction to either profit via scrap or resale to third party suppliers. It turns out I got the call to help identify what exactly they were and found out that they were intended to be sold to a aftermarket car company to be reconfigured for use on another vehicle. While this deal is still pending I have arranged the opportunity to offer them for their intended use on the STS V and XLR V.I am also looking to some of you to reconfirm it is in fact the same blower on those two cars. So after this lengthy explanation I come to the meat and ‘taters of pricing. Suggested retail is over $3000 for these units and I believe places like GM parts direct and GM parts place sell them for around $2700 plus shipping (if they have them)and we all know how the “stealerships” treat us all. I can sell these for $1250.00 to forum members with shipping costs depending on the buyer’s location. I did a quick worst case scenario with a shipping price from Michigan to San Diego and it was still only around $160.
I think this is more than fair and I am not looking to get rich off this as reflected in the $1250 pricing. It just so happens my best friend has an STS V and this is how it all came about.
I will try to post what pics I have in my album (UCSmotorsport) or a link (I will take some better higher res pics when possible).
I need to gauge the serious interest in these blowers to reserve whatever number I will need.
Thanks for lookin :thumbsup:

Good Morning UCS,
You have my interest in one of them. Assuming all things being the same (Part Numbers and design) I would also like to talk about any improvments you may have in mind for this blower.
I am sure there can be some improvements in the internals and polishing would be a good thing also. Anything that will improve on the original design would be an improvement in power. I think we can all agree on that.
Please let use know what can be done and any assocated cost. Bottom line mark me down for one. Thanks for keeping us all in mind

I wanted to let everyone know that I am in the process of getting my blower ported and polished right now. I will post before and after dyno results when I get everything put back together. The company is hoping to achieve 500rwhp with only modifying blower (no pulley swaps) and cold air intake. Everything will appear factory so warranty issues should be a thing of the past.

I can snap some pictures when I get back home I'm currently out of town. The x-pipe and magnaflow mufflers give off deeper tone without any rasp or drone sound in my car. I believe someone on the forums has a youtube video of his STS-V with the magnaflow mufflers on the car.

Here is the link to the youtube video

05-11-10, 09:40 PM
I kept all the original piping which was 2.5". Has there been any improvement in going 3" all the way back? I was thinking about doing this but didn't know if it would yield any significant hp. When I get back home I'll try to take a video to demonstrate the sound. It will be at least the middle of next week before I have the car put back together though.

I encourage everyone to take a look at this website for more information. http://www.stiegemeier.com/home.html This is going to be the first of it's kind so be patient for the results. I have already stated my mods so far. I do not have any intercooler mods but eventually will be getting the killerchiller from Kincaid Performance to assist the cooling (this too will be the first of its kind for our vehicle). According to Bob's (owner of Steigemeier porting) website he typically see's around a 20 degree temp drop in IAT2's with stage 5 port. My car will be the first to have his patented Snakebite and porting work done. Bob spent about a week with my supercharger and did some extensive work on the internals. My plans are to get the car put back together and get it dynoed with all needed info for a before and after comparison. Later I will be adding the killerchiller which should alleviate any computer related timing retard due to high charge air temps. I have researched extensively since I bought the car on the products and vendors I wanted to use.

coach123
05-17-10, 08:58 AM
The supercharger has had port and polish work done as well as his patented Snakebite. The "Snakebite" changes the internal gearing to give you more boost without the need for pulley changes. Bob is an authorized Eaton remanufacturer and has worked with these superchargers for years. He determines the max boost the supercharger can obtain after porting while still in their efficiency range and then gears the supercharger to obtain that amount of boost. I believe he said I should see around 16-18 lbs of boost when I get the supercharger back. The porting work that he did not only included the supercharger but also the intercooler lid. I should have it back to me on Wednesday so I'm excited to see the results.

I'm a little puzzled here, is the work you are having done to your blower, related to the initial post about the extra blowers? Or, are we talking about two different things here?

Hi folks
What a crazy month!! I just got back from a 4 leg trip that ended up in Lake Tahoe. If any of you are out that way I am truly jealous; it is absolutely stunning scenery there. I have a breather for a few weeks with no extended travel so I can stay on top of this thread.
I have added a few extra pictures of the blowers on my album. (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/album.php?albumid=1406)
It is nice to see since I imagine not many have seen the insides of these and how the Laminova intercooler system works. In some of the close ups you can see the”moon like” surface and its imperfections in the parting lines of the castings.
Anyway, I have run into a wall on the porting work for the blowers. My guy I use has proved his inability to deliver due to an overwhelming back log of head porting work to take care of. We were working on a CNC program but it never got finished. I am having horrible issues with getting parts delivered on time and think it may be better to go another route. I think another member mentioned Stiegemeier as a possibility to handle the upgrades. I think this community could try to get a group deal if they do quite a few all at once.
I am fighting time as well and will probably snap up the blowers as soon as I can (hopefully by the weeks end)so I don’t lose out on getting them.
I need sleep and will check in tomorrow and take a tally of the parties interested and get a list going.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.

""I had heared $1250.also, UDS also said we should get a group purchase togather and maybe a better price""


In an earlier post the group purchase I was referring to was on the porting of the blowers from a third party service. In order for us all to get the pricing established I have to buy them in lots of 10 units, which i guess is pretty much like a group purchase.

here is a short list of the members that have expressed interest in getting one of these blowers:

Florian
Fast impala
Indyblue98
Littleelvisdan
Ray901537 (possibly more than 1)

Cad08stsv

If I missed anyone else i am sorry. Maybe some of you more savy forum members can tell me if there is a way to make a post where anyone can add their name if interested. Is this possible? sort of like a running tally.

I am still determining if my supplier is returning before or after the holiday weekend from his vacation but i do have a fat check for him for the lot purchase.:bouncy:

Dan,

Wheel hop is your killer....if you can keep the wheels planted, then you should have no issue. As soon as you get asymmetrical torque, youre gonna have issues.

Count me in as well. I may allow my son to do the porting and polishing. He is currently enrolled in Wyotech, and will need a project for his High Performance Engine Building section. Guess my collection of cars rubbed off on him. So unless the group purchase includes the P&P, I may just go with the OEM blower and allow him the pleasure of cleaning it up. :D

Individual stage porting prices and snakebite prices are listed on his website http://www.stiegemeier.com/home.html He does not specify our car however you can figure it is going to be close to price listed. There are different stages of porting/polishing so pricing is not as simple as one set price. It will depend on what level porting you want specifically. You can call him to get more information on each stage. I specifically went with the snakebite and a stage 5 port/polish along with throttle body and intercooler lid work.

As you know I am interested in this blower and the Snike Bite mod,
What troubles me is the thoughts from Dan, about wheel hop....... anybody on this?
In the past it seems that we would stager the shocks and gusssesed the lower mounts. I'm not sure this can be done with the STS V, On my AMX we did that and had tq links that were factory installed on a standard tubed axel rear end,
this helped with that problem last thing we need is more issues. I wonder if the CTSV crowd has these same issues and how do they deal with it? Are there rear end set up like ours? I don't like the idea of breaking parts. Fords are a dime a dozen, so parts are fairly avalible from a nunber of sources.. Just some food for though.

Sheesh....this reminds me of 2005 when everyone had the same issue with the CTSv rear end grenading. Bottom line is this; the STSv has more torque nannies than youre gonna be able to overcome....the car wont let the extra torque get your rearend off the line...it'll just bog (unless you have a tuner remove the tq mgmt nannies - then all bets are off). From a roll, you will have no issue....even if its a 5HP roll..... Dont worry about staggering shocks/putting a C3 pumpkin in the rear/wheelhop kits, it just wont do anything for you except make noise and drive you crazy.
So, what I am planning on doing is to snakebite the blower, install it, and drive it like I stole it and not worry about anything.

Hi everyone,
Did we or didn't we get the go ahead from the supplier of the blowers to start purchasing them?
If we do have the go ahead have we been able to come to some sort of agreement as to a group purchase?
I seem to remember that there were needed around 10 people to do a group purchase. I think we had enough or close to it.
Those that have put there name on the list need to make a commitment to this purchase. I have the money in hand and I am ready to go. Who eles is ready?
If we can't get the necessary number of people to do this, than have we need a per peice price, and how much is it. I would rather not lay up my car with an open engine valley for to long of a time.
I guess what I am asking is for a definitive answer from those on the list, PLEASE
Kindest regards

update: (yes late , my apologies)
I am going to get 5 blowers tonight or tomorrow morning(since my supplier is still on vacation)
and get the other 5 on monday night the 7th
To be fair I will start from the top of the list and go down. I will probably use Pay Pal for ease of transation even though they shaft you by taking a cut; it will still be less hassle for me than any other way.
My supplier has jacked the price slightly on me:( in a momentary loss of memory as to the original deal :banghead:but It will not influence the original pricing i gave out in the begining. I will PM those on the list as soon as i have them sitting in front of me ( i tend to trust no one) and start getting them shipped.
Thank you for being patient through this; It was quite a struggle for me putting this together and getting decent pricing.

We already have a Group Buy on the blowers as stated in the original offer. The Group Buy we are all waiting on is from the PP company. The ported blower thread mentions it but no one has followed up to see what a group price on the snake bite version would be. I may have lost track but no one has posted up what $$ it cost to have a STS-V blower snake bite mod done. or for that matter a Group Price on it. Is someone working on it or has that fallen through?

Gentelman,
Please excuse me if I missed something. I was under the impression that the PP guy was only going to do the PP work and that he had nothing to do with the selling of the blowers.
Please correct me if I am wrong. I have been known to be wrong in the past, so that would not be something new.
Dan, If you find out the PP guy is in fact selling the blowers with snakebite that would slove a host of problems. Such as having to have UCS drop ship his blowers to the PP guy. That cost as well as
haveing to pay shipping from the PP guy to ship ro us.
In any case I want to thank you both for the hard work that has went into this project.

I PMed everyone on the list about a week ago but it seems that many are not interested anymore. I have only heard back from 2 of the 10 on the list so i can only assume some are of the thinking of fast impala ie not interested.

well for those just tuning in (from post #27)

" As most all of you know the financial troubles GM has gotten themselves into over the past year. The “bean counters” (don’t mean to offend) have subsequently ordered the “thinning” of the company which translates to get rid of everything that is possible in the surplus areas. It is usually true for them to cover the possible warranty parts issues for 10 years but from the warehouses full of auction parts I have seen it is truly amazing what is getting dished off. I have a few associates that base their salaries off of moving these parts from surplus or auction to either profit via scrap or resale to third party suppliers. It turns out I got the call to help identify what exactly they were and found out that they were intended to be sold to a aftermarket car company to be reconfigured for use on another vehicle. While this deal is still pending I have arranged the opportunity to offer them for their intended use on the STS V and XLR V.I am also looking to some of you to reconfirm it is in fact the same blower on those two cars. So after this lengthy explanation I come to the meat and ‘taters of pricing. Suggested retail is over $3000 for these units and I believe places like GM parts direct and GM parts place sell them for around $2700 plus shipping (if they have them)and we all know how the “stealerships” treat us all. I can sell these for $1250.00 to forum members with shipping costs depending on the buyer’s location. I did a quick worst case scenario with a shipping price from Michigan to San Diego and it was still only around $160.
I think this is more than fair and I am not looking to get rich off this as reflected in the $1250 pricing. It just so happens my best friend has an STS V and this is how it all came about.
I will try to post what pics I have in my album (UCSmotorsport) or a link (I will take some better higher res pics when possible).
I need to gauge the serious interest in these blowers to reserve whatever number I will need.
