    This is great - can you please confirm whether or not this supercharger powerkit can work with a stock 3.6L V6 LFX in a 2014 FWD Platinum XTS?

    We haven't evaluated it for that platform, but given the orientation of the motor and accessories, it would likely not be a direct swap.

    HI is this still available? I'm interested in a stage 1 supercharger for a 15 ats 3.6l coupe. Thanks

    Hi all,

    This was ultimately a proof of concept that never got off the ground as a product despite our efforts to make it a reality.  If there were a kit of similar design produced by another manufacturer, though, we would be able to tune it provided the engine were built up and sufficient cooling were integrated into a kit.
