ECS SC1500 Supercharger Kit - Corvette C5 97-04
This is the system that started the revolution. The kit holds every record supercharged record for 97-04 Corvettes. The Fastest Stock bottom end LS1 & LS6; The Fastest Stock Cube C5; The Fastest Supercharged Late Model Corvette; All run the ECS Paxton Supercharging System.
It’s not the cheapest system for the C5, but it is the most complete. We’ve built in a large number of features that you won’t find in our competitors systems – or be charged upgrade fees for. At ECS we believe in providing the most reliable, powerful and complete system, rather than nickel and diming a customer to piece together a complete supercharging system.
A Superior Belt System
When you install a SC System on your C5, you dramatically increase the load on the vehicles belt system. That’s why we start our C5 system by addressing one of the most critical aspects of a centrifugal supercharging system – not addressed by other C5 SC manufactures. We start by including a super strong, custom belt tensioner designed, specifically, to handle the increased belt load. We go further by providing zinc coated steel, double walled ball bearing idlers to replace the factory plastic idlers that are expected to handle the belt load in other systems. And, we are the only manufacturer to provide a fixed idler kit that replaces the weakest idler on the C5, between the power steering and balancer which has proven time and time again fail under the stress of a supercharger system.
Strong and Functional Brackets
ECS uses a proprietary bracket system that provides the most belt wrap possible, while still being user friendly enough to enable easy and fast belt changes (without removal of the Head Unit) when necessary. Other systems will require you hours of additional labor to pull the head unit to perform a simple belt change. The ECS brackets are made in house from ¾ in billet aluminum and include steel idlers and a stout slide tensioner, allowing maximum belt wrap and traction.
