I don't think if I were gonna put a supercharger on a 3.8 that I'd go with a roots blower. ZZP could probably fab up a CSC kit for the Camaro. It wouldn't be cheap I'm sure, but it would not be slow. That or a turbo setup, which would probably be cheaper yet then a CSC setup, and being a 5 speed car, you don't need the low-end torque you'd be lacking. (although you'd be lacking this torque with a CSC as well)

You're better off getting a V8(Z28 or SS) to begin with. You could probably swap in a LS1 cheaper then you could put on a supercharger.

Very true. That would probably be the better way to go in this case.
