really? you are already running 10.9:1 comperession so you really can't run very much boost before the dangers of detonation start, not unless you go in and change the pistons if it was me i would invest the $ in other areas just my 2 cents

I'm deciding between the Magna Charger or Joe Gibbs. They are both using the same blower. The Gibbs kit has an available 36/36K drivetrain warranty if puchased when the vehicle has less than 12/12K. Haven't looked yet to see if if an 05 kit is ready yet. Magna Charger isn't, but close.

Well, the C6 Supercharger is finished. Supposedly this guy out of Idaho is sending his C6 down to Ventura, CA next week to have it installed (He thinks his will be the first car) I am not sure though....

As for the boost, I am hearing that they are running around 6lbs. with the stock LS2. Projected RWHP is around 525RWHP with around 14-16 degrees on timing. I am sure if I keep it at their specs and not goof around with underdrive pulleys to pull more boost it should be pretty reliable.

But then again this is all hearsay for now... hopefully in a few weeks there will be some hard numbers.

I would be surprised if it were more than 450 at the wheels on a stock vette or GTO. They are going to have to limit boost to around 4/6 lbs tops on a stock LS2.

Well supposedly the Magnuson has a 36 Month warranty, however, I do not know the details of it.

As for the RWHP the Procharger Dyno'd @ 523 w/6.2lbs of boost on a C6 and the Magnusson is supposed to provide better numbers than that.

But then again, only way to find out is to install it and dyno it.

Sounds great, let us know how it turns out. :party:

A magnacharger will NEVER outdyno a ProCharger on the same car at the same boost, HUGE difference. I'd be VERY suprised to see an 05 hit 450+ RWHP with a maggie.

Hmmm... I think you might be right about that. I am now researching other forced induction installs on LS1's and it does appear that the ProCharger does out Dyno the Magnacharger.

What about reliability and "streetability" ?? any input would be helpful.

Thanks

Reliability wise it's a toss up, I have no problems with my kit and it's streetable unless you keep your foot in it lol. I've had BOTH kits on this car and the results are VERY different ;)

I was just checking the Corvette Forum and mostly they don't like the ATI, yet the LS1GTO Forum loves the ATI..... I'm soooo confused. :confused

All I know is.. 372RWHP on dynojet and a stock motor with the maggie, after it got warm it made less than stock on the dyno. Switched to the ATI unit, 452 to the tires on a MUSTANG dyno ;)

Magnuson fixed that problem. They tracke it down to the IAT being overly aggressive and their own mild tuning.

One of the sponsors at the corvette forum is in a dispute right now with ATI. He only wants to buy the head unit and use his brackets and such. When the unit first came out, the ATI kit sucked. He did his own and fixed the problems. Now ATI has fixed theirs and is trying to force him to use the whole kit now.

The problem isnt an IAT issue, its the fact it's a big chunk of aluminum attached to the cylinder heads soaking up heat and an intercooler thats too small. I talked to a guy with the revised kit/cal two weeks ago on an 04 six speed, 381RWHP so yeah, it's a physical problem not tuning. Yes I know all about the A&A saga, but the GTO kit isnt plagued with the problems that the vette kits were.
