10-05-2001, 01:51 PM
i am in the process of getting a 95 z28 camaro. i want to either put in a supercharger of a turbo. which is better? what are the advantages(mpg/hp/response)of each? which do you prefer? what brands? and mods will i need to make to the car before forced induction?
oh and for those of you i talked to about the caprice right now i am getting the tranny fixed so the will be less slip and i am going to add hedman headers 3 inch exaust 2 2chamber flows edelbrock airgap intake and an edelbrock 800 carb. when i get the camaro i am going to take out the moter and get it bored to the max possible and put a larger cam in it and roler lifters and rockers and try to find a car to put it in to make a real drag car.

LT4 hot cam kit ,LT4 extreme timing set, www.pcmforless.com
400HP and passes emissions!
Is it a manual or auto?
If you want a SC then you need to replace the pistons!!!
The LT1 can handle a 150 shot of N2O without a problem...
other LT1 clubs www.impalassforum.com
93-97 f-body camaro firbird
94-96 b-body caprice impala ss buick roadmaster and cadilac fleetwwod
the corvette guys are stuck up so i wont mention them!
My friend has a 97 z28 with cuctum twin turbos and its nothing but trouble. blown head gaskets, burned everthing from the heat ofthe piping. NIGHTMARE!
Bad bow tie runs a built LT1 in a 96 impala ss with N2O on top and runs 9s and low 10s
he hates SC, he lost 3 motors and countless trannys...

You said bore it to the max are you a nut? Your not even going to be able to drive it to town. It will run hot. I dont care what kind of radiator you have. A engine 60 over has a hard time running cool. Your going to bore it to the max and install a super charger. Ya Ill give ya a suggestion on a blower. You!

For your information I have graduated from the 12 grade and I attended 4 years of college on automobile and diesel engines. I hold 8 ASE certifications in the automobile and diesel field and I think I have enough experience to give proper comments about certian projects. If you want to make fun of how I read paragraphs why wont you look at how you like to capitalize your sentences and run everthing together. But enough on the dogging one another if you dont want any opinions on your projects dont put a post up. Plain and simple.

runs well. 10.5:1 compression and 12lbs of boost-OUCH
thoughs are hypereutectic piston-scarry!
with a fat cam the camaro will run awesome and sound MEAN as heck. 112 lobe seperation and a good INT EX duration- tunka tunka tunka- whop whop whop- sounds like a late 60's musclecar.
SC make a lot of heat and need rebuilding every couple years.
I say keep it NA and if thats not enough add some nitrous.
a couple different friends run 200hp shots on stock bottom ends in there Impala's. High 11's low 12's in a 4000+lbs car
NA they run mid 13's with mild cams.
Do you want a cage??? if it runns quicker than a 12.00 in the 1/4mile you need a NHRA certified cage
Agostino racing engines specializes in LT1 motors
To run a SC you need a walbro fuel pump, Forged pistons with 8:1 compression ratio and a good head porting with some larger valves and 1.6RR
Auto tranny needs a transgo shift kit, Fairbanks BILLET servo,
x-tra deep pan, and a 2800RPM Vigilanty or super-Yank stall converter.
The rearend is only a 7.5" and prone to breakage!

Not that it is any of my business but on the caprice i wouldn't bore it out all the way cause you never know when something will come loose and then you might need to take it out and have it bored. Then you'll need a different block. Just offering suggestions.

"BIG DADDY" i am in the same boat you are in. i just bought a 93 z28 from my brother. it has 70k miles on it red with black top, flowmaster exhaust, hypertech chip, and hpertech 160 deg thermstat. the car was a 1 owner nerver had been ate in drank in or smoked in. i forgot it also has a shift kit in it . now are you sitting down i gave $5500.00 for itand have all the records on it also includin the invoice. but as to your problem, id you go super charger you will have to rebuild them every so often. and when they blow up they create a lot of damage, turbo and blower forget it to much heat and not enough room. save up your money "about $10,500.00" and buy a ls4 engine from SLP PERFORMANCE for that price you will get a 530 hp motor at the fly wheel, 434 and the rear wheels installed and dyno and still drive it around town while using your a/c. the best pert is that it comes with the chevy 3yr 36,000 yr warranty and it is in installed by a chevy approved hi performance shop. this company built the firehawk and camaro ss for gm. the web site is slponline .com good luck in getting your camaro!
