Supercharging a Gen6 Convertible

I just got off the phone with Edlebrock Tech support to see if the Eforce will fit under my hood. Turns out it will not due to the strut tower brace. I really wanted that supercharger because it looks awesome under the hood. So now I'm looking for a front mounted supercharger. I don't want to stress the motor so looking for around 600hp. Will having a convertible cause any fitment issues with those? Which is most reliable and doesn't require any extra maintenance?

I would think a procharger would fit. They make them for cars with strut tower brace.

I don't know about convertible fitment issues, but I would imagine the LT4 supercharger would fit for you, they are extremely compact.

also consider the low side fuel pump will be different (than a hardtop).

I would love the LT4 supercharger. Just need confirmation on Convertible fitment due to strut tower brace.


I just went on TPS Motorsports and they actually have a picture of the LT4 with STB. Probably going to be my choice. Waiting for a call back from them. Thank You

Absolutely, worst case scenario that the STB does not clear any top mount blower available, you still have the procharger option. Good luck.

Plus the Procharger costs less. May have to play it safe and go with that.

So a SS conv needs a brace and a ZL1 convertible doesn't? I'm not aware that the zl1 has anymore bracing underneath than the SS if it does bolt or make that mod and run the edelbrock. There's one for sale for 5100 in my area by jett. I'll vouch for him his has less than 3000 miles. probaby get it for 4800.

I know for a fact that the edelbrock 2300 fits under the hood with a brace. not sure the convertible changes anything.

there's one in for sale on this forum its a 2300 LT and makes good power wife has it making 616rwhp and 666 TQ with just my LT4 fueling and aux pump. I think its 4000 then send to kong for porting and you will have very good power with very good IATs that fits under a brace.

GM brace painted pictured!

Thank You for posting this. The hood on the vert is the same so the Eforce should fit the Vert with OEM brace as well. May have to raise the brace with spacers but no big deal there.

The 2300LT is listed for a Corvette. Same engine but will accessories fit?


Just called Edelbrock again and asked about the 2300LT. Only Eforce for Camaro 2017 is the 2650.

It fits but the pulleys do not line up I think the pulleys run closer to the motor on a vetter. You have to buy a snout which makes it not practical. The link I shared is camaro
