    Apparently there are fitment issues w/ the cowl needing to be hacked up for it to fit. I think it's a cool idea but there's probably a reason you don't see many out there on fbodies. Probably better off going w/ a proven combo like a procharger or turbo setup.

    centrifugal superchargers are popular on F-bodys because you dont have to hack up the cowl to install them

    I thought Maggie or something similar has one now that you don't have to modify/hack the hood up or install a new hood with a higher cowl?

    to fit the whipple's 2.9l etc...you will need to cut the glass also ....i believe however..this was without k member spacers, and with stock engine mount location.......Whipple has made/almost completed a kit for the 5th gen camaros..that will fit/work with the belt\accessory layout of the lsXs ....

    Not that this matters here but my friend runs a Whipple 3.7L SC at 22psi (I think) on his stock Marauder block. His is putting down close to 815rwhp/780rwtq

    well yeah..but if they have a system that will work for the intake style we have ..all the work that needs to be done is cowl clearance correct? ...i will continue to have faith in what the owner said ...but with that said....i wont be surprised if it never happens
