This one is a game changer! Big power potential with a factory look and fit under the hood. Kong uses Eaton rotors and Eddlebrock manufacturers the cases. Good stuff! This is on the list for the next build!






They are developing an LS9 lid with a huge dual pass brick.

Starting a build on a V2 Coupe and going with a Kong 2650. Was going to have the LSA I pulled off my SS sent out for max effort porting for the build. The potential of the 2650 rotor pack is worth the premium.

It amazes me how much air they move, all the testing I have seen is at slower rotor RPMs while adding 100whp or more. Slower rotors = less heat!

Please post pictures like your two other builds if you don't mind Professor PPV...I'm more of a centerfold Scholar since Prep School across from Metro North Tracks.

I sold the blower off my SS to my brother but I’m contemplating selling the one off the V also. The one on the V is new just replaced under the GM extended service warrantee. It has about 20 miles on it.

If nothing else, the LSA prices and demand should slack off some, I would think.
If you are not shooting for north of 700 RWHP the 2650 is overkill. Also remember the Kong 2650 is only the supercharger and snout. No pulley, lid, brick, injectors, fuel rail..... so at $5,900 it’s way more money than say a $1500 stock LSA (blower only). That makes it $4,400 more out of the gate. What you will see is more full max ported LSA blowers being flipped where they want more power and need more blower and switch to the Kong. I’v seen a few ported ones out there but those guys are looking for over $3k for them because they are trying to recoup some of the investment in a $2500 port job on top of the value of the LSA. Stock LSA units will continue to bring good money since most aren’t shooting for 1,000 RWHP.

And the answer was a very blunt “no.”

The Kong 2650 showed up today!


For those interested in a side by side comparison of a stock vs Kong LSA here are some photos. It’s hard to tell in the photos but there are a bunch of subtle differences.



Another nice feature is no ears at the rear of the fuel rails making plumbing much easier.


The injector protrusions and much smaller too. Kong is on the top.
