Lucy (2011 Caprice) gets a supercharger

Post by 17mwolfe » Wed Dec 25, 2019 5:16 pm

Im in the process of installing a LSA supercharger on my 2011 Caprice (Lucy) Im using as many new Gm parts as I can. They are not that much more than used one when you are buying from www.gmpartswarehouse.com. I am a GM technician and they even beat my employee prices! I have most things collected based on "Silversled"'s great write up of his LSA install. I still have a few big things to figure out like
What Intake/air cleaner to use?
What injectors to buy?
and Why does everyone seem to install LSA valve covers?

Any help/advice would be appreciated!
I plan to post pictures and prices I paid to help others

I believe jegs was running a sale i order the fuel line from them
the supercharger had a 300 dollar core charge so it came out to a little more than $1800 it came with the actuator and lines so i didn't need to order them (looking into returning them)

the reason for the LSA valve covers is so the coils clear the s/c , i dont remember if they actually hit , or if its just added clearance room

I plan to use the unused power feed for the cylinder deactivation to power my intercooler pump relay

I also plan on running the wiring harness on top of the supercharger snout it fits so much nicer and it will keep it away from heat.
