  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

I know they are super rare to find because the snout of them break but IF i could find one can it be put on a LZ4?

Since it will not be obtained, its irrelevant if it would or wouldnt.

However, if it was spotted for sale and I had the funds, I wouldnt question if it fits or not. Id buy it and make it fit. If not, I got a rare piece of property.

Visually it looks feasible, might have to shift some things around.

If its as rare as it sounds doesn't sound like you'll be getting one for cheap though.

Hmmm...the LZ4 is setup in a similar manner...

Honestly, I'd ask over on 60degreeV6.com, that's your best bet. Also, a fabricator is over there, he runs 60inclusive.com, and specializes in 60*V6 custom fabrication parts, including headers, custom heads, etc. His SN on there is Forced_Firebird.

Yes. But 60degreeV6.com is more catered to our engine family.

I remember that thread. The supercharger could be port and polished, maybe even bored out, and larger screws inside for a bit more boost. This is the only roots style supercharger for the 60*V6s.

Crimson - the blower is not hard to find... The rear collection housing (lets call it) is the hard part. Eaton also sells the extended snout.

Chaos - do you think a vortec style one could fit where the factory airbox sits? (where the CRAB unit would go? That would just require a bracket to be fabbed/milled. Then run it with no intercooler, just straight in.

Killiger - thanks for asking over there... Want to post a linky?

Also, does anyone think that there will ever br a FI 60* motor on the epsilon platform?

If only we had some room between the engine and the hood. I bet hacking the intake mani, and welding in a s/c plate wouldnt be to hard.

yeah for sure. a guy on fieroboards used an lz4 and hacked the intake mani and made his own SC onto it. but of course he has more room. the MOTOR isn't the un-boostable, its the car and the motor that makes the combo difficult.

RSM made a centrifugal supercharger for the L82/LG8/LA1 motor, I don't see how those could not work...

Although the blower's internals need to be rebuilt. IE, new bearings. They're notorious for failure. Other than that, they've been trouble free. With an IC and tune, you're looking at a 85-95HP gain, which is A LOT for any 60*V6 motor.

You could always go with the CF hood I had, and if you don't like the CF look, just paint it. It gave you about 4 more inches under the hood :)

Christ just throw a small turbo on and call it even.

Extremely hard, as tuning is a biatch :D
