Common questions

Can you run a cam with a supercharger?

Can you run a cam with a supercharger?

Overlap is the amount of time in degrees that the intake and exhaust valves are open at the same time, and excess amounts of it can work against your supercharger by allowing exhaust backpressure to negate supercharger pressure while the valves are open. Avoid any cam with more than 30-degrees of overlap.

How much HP does a cammed 6.0 have?

585-inch lift (intake and exhaust), a 228-/230-degree duration split, and 112-degree LSA. See all 18 photos After installation of the TrackMax cam, the power output of the 6.0L LY6 jumped from 443 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque to 514 hp at 5,900 rpm and 493 lb-ft of torque at 4,600 rpm.

How much HP can you get out of a LQ9?

The LQ4 and LQ9 have very strong blocks. They can handle over 1,000 hp. using nitrous, a blower, or a turbo. However, you will need to upgrade the internals to handle that kind of power.

What’s better LQ4 or LQ9?

The ONLY difference between an LQ4 and LQ9 is the piston! The LQ4 piston is dished where as the LQ9 is a flat-top increasing compression to 10:1, and HP to 345 factory. The LQ9 is a limited production engine and VERY desirable as it is the HO 6.0L and comes with a premium price.

What makes a cam good for nitrous?

Typically, a normally aspirated street cam will use a 108- to 110-degree lobe-separation angle, while the nitrous cam we’ve chosen will be ground on a wider 113-degree lobe-separation angle. Keep in mind that our nitrous cam also features a much longer exhaust duration, which also increases the amount of overlap.

When did the GM LQ9 engine come out?

Iron heads, small cam and the old SBC crank rear flange thickness. That changed in 2001 when GM threw in the bigger cam and aluminum heads designed for the LQ9. The LQ9 was introduced in 2002 for the Cadillac Escalade and was found in top-of-the-line trucks until 2007.

How much horsepower does a LQ4 engine have?

When running boost, you can use a water-methanol system to supply extra fuel and lower charge air temps. The factory pump is good to about 430 whp. Many fuel system upgrade options are available.

How much does a LSA supercharger cost?

Keep in mind the $3100 I stated earlier does not include fuel rails, intercooler, or injectors that the complete assembly from crateenginedepot had but does include the wiring and a whole lot else. I figured out how to get that price sheet uploaded.

Can a LSA blower work on a 68 Camaro?

YES, I would like to get the whole LSA blower to work on an LQ9 forged block in a 68 Camaro I’ve searched far and wide, both here and LS1tech and havn’t been able to get a good answer on this. You can get the lower portion of the LSA (CTS-V) supercharger from GMPartsdirect for about 1500 and the top cover for under 1k.
