Hey, i am considering trading in my current SC 350z to a GTO. I test drove an 06 when they were new at the dealer, and was interested then.

I plan to get an 06 gto M/T in the next 6-8months and was planning to make sure its quicker than my Z (dont like downgrading). With weight considered i esimate would need around 440+ whp to be quicker, and was planning to do a minimum full bolt on, and SC setup.

I was curious between the procharger and magnacharger in person. I currently have a vortech on my z, and would prefer to stay away from the "jet engine" like noise during low rpm. Does the procharger sound this way on the GTO, and is it noticeable in the car.

Main point, is anyone in the orlando area that perhaps could allow an in person experience to either a magnacharger or procharger ls2? Would certainly appreciate any feedback on firsthand experience besides just videos...

thanks, have family in jacksonville, so might be worth a trip one weekend.

Dont want to do what i did with my current car and get a system without a real in person experience. I have some regrets and dont want a repeat.

You can get to 440 HP with heads, cam, headers, and tune. Hot Road or HPP had an article about 2 months ago, added I think 89 HP with those mods.

From the one day I spent at the track, I found the maggie cars very quiet at idle/low rpms. They'll whine a lot up top. The procharger cars you could definitely hear it at idle.

Maggie makes power down low, procharger up top. Been reading forums for years and the prochargers seem to do the quarter faster. Traction off the line being a problem, the powerband of the procharger seems to be more beneficial at the track. As a daily driver, the down low power of the maggie has more advantage on the street in non race situations.

Full bolt-ons and SC, you'll be over 500rwhp. You'll need tires to put that to the ground, and don't forget a clutch fund.

thanks, very helpful, i think will go the maggie route, 500whp is a lot of beef and if im around low 12s or high 11s, more than enough.
