For real. Wil a roots not fit under an f-body hood? I think that's probably why we don't get any KB fun.

Great now all we need is for them to make one that will fit under the F-body cowl...

Ahh, sorry didn't mean to tease.
It might bolt up.
Is it possible to cut the cowl if needed?

The 2.4L will support 700+ RWHP on an '03 Cobra.

The best performance product available for the '03 Cobra. Just bolting it on at same 13 psi as Eaton increases power by 72HP. That's more than headers, exhaust, pre cats, x pipe, throttle body and mass air meter make - and there's plenty more supercharger potential power on tap.

All the features of the Kenne Bell BLOWZILLA 2200 (2.2L) and the 2400 (2.4L) are the same i.e. billet case and rotor shaft supports, huge bearings and shafts, 6x4 low speed/low friction rotor, CNC machined inlet and outlet etc. The BLOWZILLA 2400 (2.4L) rotors and case are approx. 1" longer. This raises boost 3-4 psi with the same pulley size and ratio and cfm approx. 9%. The higher boost can make another 60HP over the 2200 (2.2L). The same pulley size from a 2.2L will produce up to 4 psi higher boost on a 2.4L. At the same boost level, the 2.4L uses a .5" larger OD pulley which provides a big 11% increase in belt contact area. This greatly reduces belt slippage and boost loss - and the need for expensive power robbing 10 rib pulley systems. This is an over the top kit for those who want maximum power potential from a Twin Screw supercharger. Note: There is no other advantage to using the 2.4L if your boost objective is under 24 psi (see Supercharger Efficiency Explained).

Note: The 2.4L supercharger is NOT interchangeable on a 2.2L kit. The 2.4 is 1" longer and the kit uses a different drive and pulley, lower manifold, inlet manifold, brackets, coolant tube and intercooler water outlet. Therefore, there is no way a 2.2L kit can be upgraded to a 2.4L kit.

• INSTANT FULL BOOST / HORSEPOWER & TORQUE at ANY rpm - 2000 up.
• Direct bolt on replacement. Easily installed.
• More power, cooler charge temp, less power consumption/parasitic loss than stock Eaton.
• 90% efficiency.
• Best $ value bolt on. More power than headers, cam, throttle body, MAF meter, chip and filter COMBINED.
• No "boost lag" as with centrifugals and turbos.
• Quick and easy 4 minute pulley/boost changes.
• Boost range 9*- 27psi.
• Billet aluminum construction.
• Whisper quiet.
• Billet bypass valve.
• Internally lubricated. No tapping holes in pan required.
• Doesn't use engine oil.
• Available polished or black satin.
• Stock "dual" or Kenne Bell "Big Oval" inlet manifolds available.
• Everything needed is in kit including Kenne Bell BOOST-A-PUMP™ & SWITCH CHIP®

That is the non intercooled version. If they come out with an intercooled version that would be very nice. That 2.4L blower is pretty stout.

Any reason why the 6.0 truck kits wouldn't fit on an F-bod? The problem the Mag chargers is in the gears on the back of the blower will not clear the cowl. The KB charger does not appear to have them, and in fact looks to be a tad bit shorter than the Mag. So why wouldn't it fit. One of you truck guys need to get one for the 5.3 or 6.0 and bring it to Houston so we can see if it will fit on an F-bod.

The truck accessories are spaced out further than the F-bodys and also are in different locations so that would be the first obstacle for you.

We also have different intake manifolds that are quite a bit taller than the F-body manifolds. That picture of the truck setup shows the blower sitting flush with the top of the intake manifold. The hood on an F-body might not even shut with a blower up that high.

There is probably more problems to work out and that is why they haven't put a kit out for the Fbody.

I would be willing to cut my cowl to make a Kenne Bell fit under there!

I'm interested in one of these for my 71 camaro. Where can u order itand since I'm currently using f-body accessories would it just require me to swap them for c5 accessories or truck accessories?

I'd hold out for some impressive results if I was interested in the KB. It has never failed to disappoint on the C5's over the years. Lots of promises though...
