...and install rods, crank, forged pistons, cam, etc. if you want it to work right and last.
You're going to have a much better experience going with a professional to do this, rather than just slapping a, LSA blower on it.

You wouldnt need to swap the ecu...just get it tuned. You can add a boost-a-pump instead of the zl1 pump, it's a easier install, but swapping the pump is better. Also, you'll have to swap out the injectors.

Plenty of guys run boost on stock internals with no issues, just be conservative and find a good tuner.

Why do you want the lsa blower? There are so many other options that come in complete kits and are also probably cheaper and make more power.

Maybe he already has a line on one?

I agree, get recommendations (plural) for a good, local tuner/shop who can help. Keep us posted!

Stock internals on the LS3/L99 engines are super strong. Guys are boasting numbers north of 700 to the wheels on stock internals. I would think the stock block can handle the power from a ZL-1 blower easy-peasy...

we are currently doing the exact same thing on an L99 2010 ss

fuel pump booster or upgraded unit, injectors are both items that need to be addressed on this swap.

as was earlier mentioned cost WAS an issue for this blower install. @ 7k for just the blower assy and the LSA front drive at another $1300+ it could get expensive.

hope this helps to shed some light on the requirements of your swap.

There are a few LS3s with LSA superchargers running around in Texas.

+1 for the ZL1 supercharger. GM OEM engineered = last longer, better resale, no jack shaft, no belt slip. I like the sound of the ZL1 blower, it spools faster so the wine comes on quicker.

Better resale?

Who makes the s/c GM uses on the ZL1 anyway?
