Anybody installed a SC yet

I was thinking about going with a supercharger and wonder if anybody was having issues with any particular type of SC. I am thinking procharger, but the Magnuson sure looks sweet under the hood

What are you planning to do with the bottom end of your engine, fuel, and timing? That Magnuson is gorgeous, but pricey.

We have installed two Magnuson S/C's but nothing else. One was an automatic car which didn't seem to make the best RWHP numbers, but feels awesome on the street. The other was a manual that put down about 408RWHP and 418RWTQ.
I drove the manual to a tire spinning, wheel hopping, 2.2 60', [email protected] here in Phoenix. That was my fourth pass ever in it. I will say that it took much finessing with the extreme low end torque. The next fastest manual transmission that night was at 13.98, so I didn't do too bad.

I have the Magnuson charger on my 04 Cosmos purple GTO. You can see a ton of pictures here
