    Honestly, developing a turbo system would be much easier and possibly cheaper.

    Magnuson Heartbeat features low height and a new intercooler setup on a TVS 2300 but would need development for the LC3 and be pricey (besides).

    Not really. I already did that. There is a build thread on this forum.

    The 2300 TVS rotors are great but we need a housing for them. One made for an LS motor is not going to be adaptable, the bore spacing is different among other things.

    No one is going to make a housing specifically for the Northstar so something custom will have to be fabricated.

    @TimmyC

    so while on this subject, can I ask why you went to turbo setup then back to supercharged?

    I wanted to build and sell parts to the supercharged guys. Had to have a test car.

    If I get the time over winter and can sell my speed boat I never use. I will have twin 60mm turbos on my v buy next summer. Looking for 600 rwhp our bust. I'm going with bust lol. But it should make for one heck of a show car. I have the turbos and the friend to bend all the pipe. Just need to get a intake and oil system for it.

    Cool! Twin 60mm will be a laggy bitch though. A 2.2L four cylinder takes a long time to spool a 60mm turbo.

    I worked for Eaton in the automotive department for a couple of years before it was mostly sold off. I knew some of the guys in the R&D in Detriot. I am partial to the stock Eaton S/C because I know the quality that Eaton as a company puts into its products personally. I never got to see the supercharger division but I did work with the quality department and they are thurough. My 2 cents.
    Plus Cadillac must think highly of them or they would have never put them in these cars.

    I would like to use 40mm+- but the 60mm were all most free.
