Supercharger - Magnacharger vs. Procharger whats better?

Good evening ladies and gentlemen,

Just a quick question its tax return season so I have some extra money to p*$$ off and was wondering, what would get me the most bang for my buck... I hear that the procharger makes more power BUT I hear that the magnacharger comes as an entire complete kit injector's included and I hear that the whistle from the magnacharger sounds better. I'm not out there trying to race everyday just want a little bit more get up and go. Does the procharger kit (middle of the road one) come with everything needed including new injectors?

Also where has the best prices been found for both unit kits?

Thoughts please

Where do you want the power? That's the only question you need to ask yourself when making this choice.

<-- Guess which ones quicker?.....Nope! Not even close.

I'd honestly like to see more low to mid range power... Don't honestly care about 135 + its useless most races don't last that long anyway.

Just ordered a Magnuson TVS 2300 over a Procharger DSC1, wanted power down low and no lag to throttle. Kit does come complete with fuel rails, injectors, charge cooler/reservoir, etc. Kit also has tune pkg, but I am going with dyno tune for car.

Where did you end up ordering the kit from? I'm looking for the most bang for the buck as I am on a limited budget. I'd like to keep it under 6500

TURN-KEY Discounted Package: 50% More Horsepower for your 2005-2006 Pontiac GTO (LS2)
This price includes COMPLETE ProCharger System, Installation on YOUR Vehicle and FULL Computer Dynotune

Fun. Safe. Affordable. These three highlights are the reason our Tick Performance TURN-KEY Discounted Packages are so popular! We love ProCharger Systems and we know you'll love yours too - as soon as you romp on the throttle for the first time with at least 50% extra horsepower to play with! We take the headache out of supercharging your vehicle by blueprinting everything you need to make reliable, SAFE horsepower, including the following:

•ProCharger High Output Intercooled System with P-1SC-1 Head Unit (50% horsepower increase at 6psi - $6996.00 retail - parts only pricing available on our website)
•Fuel Injector Upgrade included with system (a $395.95 value)
•GM 2 Bar MAP Sensor (allows us to get more aggressive with the tuning, thus making more power - $93.00 retail)
•160 Thermostat (allows us to get more aggressive with the tuning, thus making more power - $29.95 retail)
•Set of 8 NGK Spark Plugs (colder than stock, required for supercharging - $20.00 retail)

Go luck tuning it when your clutch won't hold the power.

Bought one!

Wen't ahead and bit the bullet and bought a Maggie TVS1900

Hopefully will be in this weekend. Paid 6411.13 for it I feel I got a good deal since the exact same kit from magunson direct was 6850.00 + 110.00 for shipping.

Cheers!
