So I'm in the process of making the list of what I want to do to my car.

I was thinking heads/cam/fast intake/102 TB and supporting mods but lately I've started thinking for the cost of the Fast Intake and 102 TB Im 1/2 way to a LSA supercharger.

Also I'm changing my heads anyhow I could go LS3 heads and not need adapters.

I don't want to swap hoods or cut mine up so this is my question

Will the LSA Blower clear with the CTS-V Lid if I run LS3 heads and swap motor mounts for a little more clearance?

Yes. You may have to gently massage the hood support but when I ran an LSA it cleared.

Thanks for the quick response, I've noticed most people switch to a cowl hood.
All the info I could find was people running the ZL1 Lid or LSA to LS2 adapters which both cause clearance issues

Even with the adapters, if you cut the hood brace it will clear a stock hood.

Lower motor mounts help too.

With mine even when I massaged the hood the LSA rubbed on mine. If I didn't run LS3 heads it wouldn't have fit at all.

What is all necessary to get the belt drive to work? Its listed as a "belt drive adapter kit" but what does that include or how much different is the offset? Sorry I know nothing about LSA's, but was just curious.

They use an offset pulley that moves the ribbed area back 3/4”. I’ll be listing the legit LSA drive accessories tonight that are fully adapted to a GTO, including the AC.
