What do I need to do for an LSA/ZL1 supercharger swap - Part 1 This is a question we get asked all too often. To be honest it's a really hard quest...
As many of you already know, LSX Concepts has been at the forefront of Muscle Car LSA accessory drive kits for some time. As always, we strive to innovate while moving forward. We realized the need for an LSA drive system that allowed the use of High Mount A/C so there would be no need for frame modifications to fit the LSA in your classic muscle car. We currently have two LSA accessory drive kits on the market and now a third in development.
Today was a very special Christmas for all of us here at LSX Concepts, The March 2016 issue of Lowrider magazine hit the stands with a very nice tech article on our LSA / ZL1 Accessory Drive and Our High Mount A/C kit.
One of the biggest hurdles with building a tall deck LSX block is finding the right accessory drive brackets to fit the tall deck block, The LSX Concepts LS brackets have been specifically designed to fit both standard and tall deck LSX blocks similar to the RHS or GM LSX Bowtie Block.
So it seems the ZL1/CTS-V LSA superchargers are the hot swap these days, they are all over eBay for as little as 500.00 and one of the primary reasons we developed our LSA Supercharger Accessory Drive kit. It's like the 60's again when we had all the 6-71 and 8-71 blowers laying around for your hot rods. Note: GM called their Diesel 2 cycle supercharger for the numbers of cylinders and the cubic inch of each, hence 6-71 and so on. Now we have the ZL1/CTS-V LSA superchargers just begging to be on your LS swap in your muscle car.
Here at LSX Concepts we do more than just make brackets, recently we needed some 2" wheel spacers for our project 70 Chevelle so we could bolt on C7 Corvette wheels to show off our 5th gen Camaro on the car and being a machinist I didn't see anything on the market suitable for the project... Solution make our own.
