Kenne Bell 2.8LC

Will a Kenne Bell 2.8LC supercharger off a 2007-2013 GT500 work on a 2013 GT?

Provided the bolt patterns are the same on the lower manifold you could get away with it if you buy one from a 5.0. Chances are, the head units are the same and the lower manifold is not. Simple manifold swap and tuning should be all you would need. Don't quote me!

I do know that Kenny belle makes a liquid cooled 3.6L blower and id buy that one first.

Definitely a different lower intake manifold required at the very least. Also, if it's LC'ed coolant flow on the coyote may be different than the trinity motors and you may get jacked up coolant flow through the blower and/or motor. I'm not sure if coolant flow is different or not but its definitely something you should look more into.

no they will not, if you look at the 5.0 2.8LC you will see that the case sits back from the snout and pulley, on a GT500 the snout is much shorter and the pulley is right next to it

GT500:


5.0 2.8LC:


as for the Liquid Cooling, it is independent of the cars cooling system.

That is potentially as easy as a snout change.

sure, but you would need a different intercooler, see how the GT500's is different that the 5.0's, and the boost bypass is routed differently which would require you to need the 5.0's mammoth intake. in the end unless you got the supercharger for next to nothing, it would probably cost more to piece it together than to buy the 5.0 kit.

Right, a different lower intake manifold, which entails the intercooler, which is what I said in my previous post

Grabber5.0, we're on the same page, and the cast mammoth intake at the rear would also need to be change over as it is a different piece.

Basically what he should do rather, as I suggested, is but the 3.6LC actually made for the 5.0. You can mix/match snouts and lower manifolds no problem if you got money to blow. The LC system works just like most other twin screws... Nothing fancy

So what your saying is that he should just buy the 3.6LC kit for the 5.0? Because nothing from the GT500 2.8LC will carry over to the 3.6 kit.

tarupert, your best bet is to call kenne bell and ask yourself. their pretty friendly and matt and mike are quite knowedgeable about their products. 909 941-6646

Yes that was what I was saying. The 3.6LC kit is rated to 1000HP and the intake flows to 1200. Kind of hard to beat those numbers! I know personally of a 2012 boss running the 3.6LC making over 800rwhp @21psi on the stock boss long block. A number of sub 9 second 1/4 mile passes and still going strong.

This is Tracy's boss that I'm referring to.. Same kit I'm talking about also. Even on stock manifolds made 851rwhp!

cool, that's my 2.8LC kit in the pictures. I am shooting for 850 rwhp max with it when I build the bottom end some time in the future. I think I'll be happy with that in the end. love to upgrade to the 3.6, maybe one day if the 2.8 can't do it. but I'm gonna try and find out first.

Well I believe that 2.8 will get you there! Just going to have to pulley it up when you have a more stout motor. 850rwhp is really harsh on the drivetrain and even more on the Trans. It's nothing to snap I put shafts with 650rwhp, much less 850.
