Next year or over the winter im going to start upgrading. Trying to learn as much as possible.
Going be the big do I go Screw, Roots, Centrifugal, or Turbo lol..
Was curious how far fuel system would go. I didn’t know was cam driven..
In truth it looks like the stock fuel system and inj package can support 650-ish but that is at WOT + max RPM. At say 2500 RPM and 5psi the stock fuel system will already fall short or be on the ragged edge. Its all too new. I could be way off but that is what I am hearing. I see 3 new companies have twin turbo kits out for the C7. Granatelli, Lashway and STS but no one has address the fuel needed and we put our kit on hold while we tool a manifold to add extra injectors per cylinder. Based on the success of our C5, C5, Gen 3, Gen 4 and Gen 5 Camaro turbo kits we see full boost at 2000 and that is a recipe for disaster. We will not ship a kit until we know it is dead safe. That’s the problem with turbo kits…we ship it and say leave it at 7psi and the customer says oh ya I promise I won’t turn it up
. Then they try 10 psi “but only for a second – ya right” and when it blows up…its our fault
A centrifugal set for 8psi at 6500rpm will only have say 2 or 3 by 3500 rpm and that means they require less fuel (because they make less power) down low.
Roots and Screw blowers are basically the same thing
