I heard it' still in a developing stage.... however i still do not think it is worth it.... about 20 to 30 thousand dollars for not a lot of horsepower....

Default New HKS Supercharger for LS460

A new offering from HKS. GT Supercharger System: GTS8550 Complete Kit. A PDF that had a 7/25/2011 date was on the internet yesterday. According to their performance graph it should add around 70HP.
Factory ECU is retained with no mods. Average installation time is approx. 22hrs.

Model USF40, Engine 1UR-FSE, Code 12001-AT005.

They did not have a price; but similar BMW M3 was priced at $4500.

Nope! You'd be better off with a Nitrous system.

I heard a lot of trouble comes from that on this Compression engine!! Have you done any mods yet? I'm looking for a nice Intake system for my 460.. any suggestions?

People do it on the ISF so I don't see why the LS would be an issue. I've had nitrous setups on a few cars. There aren't really any options for make an LS quicker. There aren't any aftermarket intake systems for the car either. Only performance mods I have done are some Tom's racing braces, wheels, Brembo BBK, Tanabe springs, and Joe Z axle back exhaust.

I feel you on that... Seems the more I search the less I find on this Model, I found a 50 shot kit, but I'll hate to start drilling into the manifold.. I'll admit, my baby is quick already... I just want to shock'um at the light when I pull away!!!

Bump....any turbo systems or blowers, cams, stroker kits (the 5.0 crank in the LS600 HL should fit).

A major issue is going to be tuning, I can't find ANYTHING for a tuner. May have to go MoTec....ouch.

What is the price on the kit? What psi does it run? How much rwhp/rwtq does it make?

It's not cheap, last time I saw it was about 18k, and it's not going to give you crazy amount of power either. Not sure if they have a version that works with the usdm ecu, so you might have to make some custom stuff for that. The LS isn't really a "performance" type of car, so you won't find very much in that department.

^^^Sounds about right cheapest I've seen it was $15k. It'll only get you 100hp. Eff that. Lol 15k better get me more than 100hp lol.
