East Coast Supercharging 1997-2004 Chevrolet C5 Corvette Supercharger Systems

This page is dedicated to the 1997-2004 C5 Corvette Supercharger Systems manufactured by our 3rd Party Manufacturer - East Coast Supercharging.

This is the system that started the revolution. The kit holds every supercharged record for 97-04 Corvettes. The Fastest Stock bottom end LS1 & LS6; The Fastest Stock Cube C5; The Fastest Supercharged Late Model Corvette; All run the ECS Paxton Supercharging System.

It’s not the cheapest system for the C5, but it is the most complete. ECS have built in a large number of features that you won’t find in other systems – or will have to pay upgrade fees for. ECS believes in providing the most reliable, powerful and complete system, rather than piecing together a complete supercharging system.

A Superior Belt System

When you install a Supercharger System on your C5, you dramatically increase the load on the vehicles belt system. That’s why ECS start their C5 system by addressing one of the most critical aspects of a centrifugal supercharging system – by including a super strong, custom belt tensioner that is designed specifically to handle the increased belt load, along with zinc coated steel, double walled ball bearing idlers to replace the factory plastic idlers. In addition, East Coast Supercharging are the only manufacturer to provide a fixed idler kit that replaces the weakest idler on the C5, between the power steering and balancer, which has proven time and time again fail under the stress of a supercharger system.

Strong and Functional Brackets

ECS uses a proprietary bracket system that provides the most belt wrap possible, while still being user friendly enough to enable easy and fast belt changes (without removal of the Head Unit) when necessary. The ECS brackets are made from ¾" billet aluminum and include steel idlers and a stout slide tensioner, allowing maximum belt wrap and traction.
