Welcome to the Overkill supercharger system for your 2016 and newer Camaro 3.6 V6. As GM V6 specialists, we're proud to have been the first company supercharging the newest 3.6 LGX engine in any platform and have been supercharging 2016+ Camaro V6s since January 2017.

The Overkill Vortech supercharger system solves the problem on how you make V8-like horsepower with your 3.6 V6. Whether you purchased your V6 for its lower purchase cost, its lower operating cost or just because it was fast enough at the time but now you want more, you can now bolt on LT1 like horsepower in the driveway. Stage 1 kits will typically provide gains of 100-125 horsepower, while Stage 2 is the path of a reliable 500+ horsepower.

This system is 100% bolt on installation you can do in a weekend. You are not required to have any other modifications on your vehicle. Every requirement to install a supercharger on your Camaro V6 is included in this kit, including going above the normal expectation with our catch can system to improve engine operation and lifespan, and our all inclusive tuning service. *Note* that 1LEs with the coolers in the fenders behind the front bumper, you may need to move the coolers to fit our piping and that will require your own ingenuity to reposition them.

All Kits include the following components and features:






Stage 1 Kit Information

Stage 1 base kits ship making 8psi on an otherwise factory vehicle, producing a 100 wheel horsepower gain on average on a chassis dyno. The above 366 wheel horsepower dyno compares to a factory dyno of 262 wheel hp from the same vehicle on the same dyno. The Stage 1 kit can be installed on a completely factory 3.6 V6 by a competent professional mechanic in roughly 6-8 hours and is a good driveway weekend DIY job for a good amateur mechanic using basic tools (an impact driver is recommended). You do not need any modifications on your vehicle to install Stage 1, comes with everything you need. You'll need to run 91 octane gasoline or higher. While tuning is custom through Overkill Motorsport, you'll be required to do some back and forth emailing of driving scans of your vehicle, or you may seek out a local tuning shop at your descretion which can receive support from Overkill. Aftermarket exhaust work is beneficial but not required.

**Note** - If you have Overkill tuning already via the Autocal handheld, we request that you switch to the HP Tuner software, who's software on our end allows the appropriate tuning capability for forced induction. You'll be sent an HP Tuner suite and will send Overkill back the Autocal and that trade is included in the price when you select "Already Overkill Tuned". You'll be required to have a laptop for operating the tuning suite, please see the HP Tuner website for more details.

The path to 500 horsepower 3.6 V6 is with our Stage 2 upgrade kit. Our Stage 2 kit added onto our Stage 1 provides with more boost and the required fuel system modification to support it. A high flow fuel tank fuel pump replaces the factory V6 fuel pump and larger fuel injectors replace the factory injectors for additional fuel capacity. A change of supercharger pulley then bumps the boost up to 11-12psi (from the 8-9psi of Stage 1). This provides the power to make 400-420 wheel horsepower, a 175-200 engine horsepower gain over factory. For those willing to do the more indepth installations, the power gains from Stage 2 are worth it!

Q: How does the Overkill kit compare to our competition?

Answer:Here's some key areas we differ and excel...
  • Better Tuning - Overkill includes an HP Tuner suite and full custom tuning support because Overkill IS the tuner and a 3.6 specialist; they include a prepackaged tune and suggest you seek 3rd party tuning for customization. Overkill has tuned our competitor's kit on a customer's vehicle!
  • Independent Drive Belt - One of the biggest differences! Overkill uses an independent wider 8-rib drive belt that doesn't interfere with the factory accessory belt's operation, they integrate into the factory 6-rib belt. The independent belt is more durable in the long run, true factory supercharger systems use a separate belt.
  • Larger intercooler - Overkill's intercooler is 1152 sq inch core, theirs is 630 sq inch per the website, nearly HALF the size in cooling capacity
  • Catch can - We include one! Overkill's top of the line catch can system stops oil contaminating the engine and supercharger system; they don't have one, where will all that oil vapour go?
  • More Horsepower/Upgrade Paths - Don't be swept away by face-value advertised dyno results, see what customers really dyno. Overkill's advertised horsepower is numbers the majority of our customers WILL achieve in full street trim. Our Stage 2 kit is unique to the market and will deliver the potential for 500+ horsepower reliably and realistically.
  • Bang for your buck - Compare the features and compare the price, Overkill gives you more for your money.


Question: Do I Need To Do Anything To The Car First Before Installing?

Answer: You don't need to have any preinstalled modifications. Everything that's needed to install the supercharger is included in the supercharger kit. One important suggestion is you should be all up to date on your servicing, including changing your transmission oil and differential oil following "severe" service intervals, which typically call for replacement every 45k miles. For your engine oil, it is very highly recommended that you use synthetic oil if you're not already, Amsoil Signature Series or Pennzoil Platinum Ultra continue to rate the best. You're absolutely 100% required to run 91 octane gasoline or more.

Question: How hard is it to install?

Answer: This is a very straight forward bolt on system. Lots of loosening and tightening bolts, lots of paying attention to detail, very little fabrication. All of the work is done either from the top of the engine bay or in the front bumper area, nothing on your back under the vehicle. A professional shop can install this in 6-8 hours. A good DIYer can get this done in a weekend. Click here or the link above to view the installation instructions to get an idea of how it goes together .

Question: How Reliable Is This Setup?

Answer: The 3.6 engine historically has proven itself durable on a supercharged setup. We've been supercharging the 3.6 since 2016 and know the limits of boost, fuel capacity, ideal air/fuel mixture, spark timing etc, to build durable and lasting setups. The supercharger system is also proven reliable; we've engineered durable custom components and matched them with top quality off-the-shelf components when required. Aside from oil changes on the Vortech, our goal is to have you install this system and enjoy it without the need for constant attention to any component. You can anticipate being able to daily drive the setup.

Question: Is there ANYTHING Special To Know About This Setup?

Answer: Due to the construction tolerances, Vortech does not recommend cold starting the Vortech when temperatures are below 25*F (-4*C). If you live in northern climates where temperatures get below freezing in winter, you'll want to either store your vehicle in a heated garage, use a heat blanket on the Vortech to warm it up before starting the engine, or simply remove the supercharger belt and drive the car normally without the supercharger engaged (yes it will run just fine like this) until outside temperatures permit you to put it back on.

Question: I Already Have A Catch Can, Can I Buy This Kit Without One?

Answer: Only if you have a Tracy Lewis Signature Series can or an Elite E2X can with 3 ports. The catch can must be set up as we specify for proper operation. If you have a substandard performing can or don't set up the system as we've designed it, your supercharger and intercooler will get nasty oil contamination, affecting their performance and life span. If you have the two cans mentioned, contact us to receive a discounted kit without the catch can.

Independent Belt System


One of the things we wanted to ensure as part of our design was an independent supercharger belt system. Rather than using the factory OEM accessory belt, our system uses its own supercharger belt and leaves the factory belt completely intact.

We do this by first installing our new crankshaft pulley. Removing the crankshaft bolt allows you to slide the new pulley as an insert into the factory pulley, and then secure with the bolt. The new pulley indexes into the spokes of the OEM pulley so it is locked into place and cannot slip.



The supercharger is spaced appropriately not just for its own belt but for an 8-rib belt. Rather than using the 6-rib factory belt, a wider 8-rib belt will reduce belt slip issues as we start to get smaller and smaller on the pulleys. We can do this because we are not limited using the OEM accessory belt, this can only be accomplished with a dedicated supercharger belt.



Supercharger Specific Catch Can System


Our Catch Can System included with each supercharger system is set up specifically to perform with forced induction. Unlike a generic catch-can which connects between the intake manifold and engine on the "dirty side" of the PCV system only, ours connects to both sides of the PCV and provides two suction sources for the dirty side crankcase. When the intake manifold becomes pressurized, the catch can looses suction from the manifold, and the crankcase can become pressurized with boost pressure; our catch can uses a check valve to close and prevent boost from pressurizing the catch can, and a secondary suction line connected right before the supercharger inlet actually uses the vacuum created by the supercharger to continue to draw air from the crankcase. As an extra backup, a clean side separator attached to the oil filler cap separates and prevents oil vapors flowing down the clean side line into the intake path. The entire system means that oil will stay out of the supercharger inlet, out of the intake manifold, out of the intercooler, and reduces blowby at the piston rings, all of which improves engine safety, supercharger lifespan, and overall performance.
