2008-2013 6.2 Liter LS3 Corvette Supercharger Systems
With the ECS C6 LS3 Supercharger System, You get more. A lot more. This is the kit that has helped set several national C6 records in both 1/4 mile and 1/2 mile racing and has proven itself for thousands of miles on Corvettes around the world.
It is the most complete system in the market. It was designed to work with your factory cooling system (Even on Z51s and Z06s), and retains provision for factory (or aftermarket) oil coolers. Also included are items that greatly add to reliability such as heavy duty belt tensioners and steel double bearing idlers, as well as stainless steel hardware, high quality silicone hoses and high grade, stainless steel t-bolt clamps.
A Superior Belt System
When you install a supercharging system on your C6, you dramatically increase the load on the vehicle's belt system. That’s why ECS start their C6 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.
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 when necessary. The ECS brackets are made from 3/4" billet aluminum and include steel idlers along with a stout slide idler, allowing maximum belt wrap and traction.
The Highest Efficiency Intercooler
The C6 Corvette is a “front breather”. Meaning all the air that cools your radiator and AC condenser passes through the nose of the car. That’s why ECS started from scratch when designing our C6 intercooler. The large 17" x 3.5" x 8" core has proven to support more than 1200 hp, and still provides adequate airflow across the front of the car to allow your A/C and cooling systems to keep the car operating as it should, without the added cost of a larger radiator and fans. With the ECS intercooler, you won’t need to scoop additional air from the bottom of the car in the attempt to manage heat. Doing this only causes lift on the nose of the car and disturbs the air flow as it was designed in the C6. The intercooler features a 3" inlet and a 4" outlet to maximize cooling and airflow that is so critical to your supercharged Corvette.
Top Rated Materials
ECS believes that quality is in the details…that’s why they utilize only the top materials…stainless steel hardware, brand new flow matched injectors, zinc coated steel idlers, 6061 aluminum ducting, stainless steel t-bolt hose clamps, high quality 4-ply silicone hoses, lifetime air filters. ECS believes in doing it right the first time.
Head Unit Options
The Paxton NOVI 1500 has been the core of the ECS C6 system for a number of years. This head unit features a self contained oiling system, and super quiet operation, making it the top option for most enthusiasts.
Possibly the best feature of the NOVI 1500, is the scalable power it provides. It will provide 500-600 rear wheel horsepower on otherwise stock C6’s, but when uncorked, it can provide enough boost to generate more than 800 rear wheel horsepower on a properly set up engine.If you are looking to support above what the base NOVI 1500 can support, the included bracket system is compatible with several other Paxton NOVI head units to support upwards of 1,300+ whp depending on the application. The standard ECS C6 brackets will work with the following head units:
*Oil fed units require -4AN feed line and 1/2" or -8AN drain line
All available in Black or Polished finishes.
