Yeah i know, I'm trying to find a supercharger with a nice whine, but the vortech is just so cheap I think they are just being a tease

I drove a GT around 900hp with a big Procharger on it and it had a very loud whine but it was running a cog belt.


Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

After 19+ years in the Army I've become a creature of habit on going with overkill. If a 9mm will hit a target then a 50 cal would be way more fun to do it with.

All of the SC will take you to 450 plus HP, even the Roush if you spin it to death.

If you go cams, LT and then add a SC, thats alot of green....
I would go to a SC then see if I wanted more.

Yep, I did get a deal on the Maggie

If they brought the price down a bit, I would belive they could definitly get more business. Whose knows what they are doing.

Talked with a couple of people at Magnacharger last couple of days, and they don't know why their company is slow balling the 1900.
Yeah and your point is totally valid. But that getting to 450 part. For you all you do is change blower pulley and your done. It is not as easy for m90 roush or mine really. Lotta people have to use OD pulley to get that power because belt slip and even then possibly looking at 8 rib. Honestly, is magnacharger sold their 1900 blower for $4100 I believe it would be an EXTREMELY valid option. And even if they said hell no to that, they should offer guys like me with the M112 blower the opportunity to upgrade the head unit. It is the same manifold.

That would be nice of them to let you purchase the head unit, and maybe even business smart. Especially for the Ford/Mustang end of their business which they don't seem to really push much.

Sometimes to get a bigger market share you need to think outside the box, letting the M112 upgrade would definitly boost the Magnacharger "talk" on these social media websites.

NOTA HYBRID,,,,,,Not to steal your thread, but I know a guy was looking at travelling up from Ga I believe to get Piedmont Custom Motorsports to install a 1900 Maggie.

May want to travel out of Bama and visit the blue skies of Carolina:smilie

I'd have to be getting one heck of a deal on a supercharger to drive a good distance, but I'd be willing to do it. That drive to North Carolina is not very fun.

It is when your supercharged. Any drive can be fun; I do sometimes wish I still had cruise control though.

Why do you not have cruise control?
