How much power did this car make N/A? What kind of dyno was it tested on

My guess (XYZ) I would be interested if you really know

oxnard ? I live in corona too far. 8lbs, kooks headers+exhaust and rotofab CAI, custom tune. Why do you want to dyno my car ? Not believing 500 HP ? Pretty much in line with other cars with same mods.

I ran the numbers and I guess will all the other mods it can do it. I more than anything want to see how my dyno stacks up. We are a bonded dyno and must calibrate every 30 days to keep the certificate. We are also the Mustang Dynamometer dyno rep for So Cal. All too often we dyno a car at 440 and the customer says it can't be because they just made 500 at XYZ dyno. I look like the bad guy because the other dyno guy fudged his numbers

like the dragon guy that claimed a 250hp increase at 5psi with no intercooler. It can't be done. 320 RWHP can't turn into 570 at 5 psi RWHP - Sorry

This is no reflection at any one person - But as we release our Twin Turbo kit for the 2010 Camaro - i want to compare real numbers. We are will to sell a few of the first kits at a small discount to get them in teh hands of others - we know word of mouth will travel faster then any advert or article

Magnuson TSV2300 vs Edelbrock E-Force

Hello,

Thank you all again !! More questions of course.

It seems the Magnuson TVS2300 is the most popular and the Edelbrock E-Force is too new for popularity at this point. What are the major differences between the two?

I was reading in the forum that the Edelbrock E-Force starts to build back pressure in its self after 5000 RPMs which would lead me to believe there is no more potential than what it is. That being said, it seems the maggie has more boost potential into the motor, but would be irrelivant for my goals. However you know that people always wany more and more HP.

The Maggie has a jack shaft, right? That is the side shaft the goes to the belt in the back, right?? The Edelbrock E-Force does not. Are there problems with jack shafts ?

Also I read the Edelbrock E-Force has a boost bypass valve to keep the pressure low during normal driving. I guess that would be like a kind of waste gate. They say it's better for fuel milage. Is it? And is it better for logevity?

Does the Maggie have a boost bypass ?? or is it pressure all the time ?

Whats the fuel milage on the maggie (6psi) and the Edelbrock E-Force (6psi)??

What about the stock torque converter? Can it handle it ??

Thank you.

If I remember correctly that car made 335 stock. I'd have to confirm on Monday. We have a DynoCom dyno.

Under normal conditions at 80-85 mph I am getting 23 mpg on hwy. Driving through town I am at around 16 mpg. I am around 13 lbs of boost with a 2.75 pulley and I also have 3.70 rear gears. I truly believe that my mpg have improved with the maggie with normal driving habits. Of course when I am on the gas hard then there is nothing economical about it. You can't beat the looks of the maggie.

I'm sorry but I have to chime in here. I don't think any supercharger is as quiet as my procharger. Maggies are quiet, but they don't suprise the techs who dyno them as they can hear the Maggie.

I called a place that installs superchargers. They said they only put them on new cars and they would have to do a leak down test on a "used" car, my 2010 camaro.

So I'm wondering how long is it before a supercharged street engine starts to get blow by? 36,000 miles?

They share the same Eaton rotors, but about everything else is different on the assembly. Edelbrock claims greater torque numbers, and from my recollection, it looks spot-on, but it's still a little early, IMO, to make definative judgments. Either one will do you good

I was reading in the forum that the Edelbrock E-Force starts to build back pressure in its self after 5000 RPMs which would lead me to believe there is no more potential than what it is. That being said, it seems the maggie has more boost potential into the motor, but would be irrelivant for my goals. However you know that people always wany more and more HP.

Well, if you're keeping the rest of the car stock, there's probably not too much to really worry about. I kinda' tend to think the straighter the path to the intake port, the better, for the most part. If the runners are tuned, though, there's potential for improvements, though, it would seem. The question I have for Edelbrock is if these runners are tuned for torque, is that only given a particular configuration (i.e. only at the boost level the kit comes with, or is it tuned from the stock psi through X psi)? Having headroom is great, IMVHO, and I think you have plenty with either of these (or any others mentioned in this thread for that matter).

The Maggie has a jack shaft, right? That is the side shaft the goes to the belt in the back, right?? The Edelbrock E-Force does not. Are there problems with jack shafts ?

I believe there could be harmonics that jackshafts could add, however, I remember reading Magnuson went to a carbon fiber shaft to prevent that from happening. Also, a jackshaft would enable a straight shot right into the mouth of the SC. I know that KB has been really focused on keeping intake restrictions down, and their Mammoth inlet flows like 1800 cfm, so my point about a straight shot is likely moot. I don't have a dyno or data to support any claims - just humble opinions from research.

Also I read the Edelbrock E-Force has a boost bypass valve to keep the pressure low during normal driving. I guess that would be like a kind of waste gate. They say it's better for fuel milage. Is it? And is it better for logevity?

I believe I read the Maggy has the same valve that KB uses, and has had them for a long time. I'm sure it's even the same as the Edelbrock unit. It will help mileage and longevity because it relieves boost when it isn't needed, and the SC doesn't end up fighting itself, for the most part.

Does the Maggie have a boost bypass ?? or is it pressure all the time ?

See above.

Whats the fuel milage on the maggie (6psi) and the Edelbrock E-Force (6psi)??

It would seem mileage wouldn't be adversely affected so long as you could keep your foot out of it. Actual owners are going to have to comment on this though.

What about the stock torque converter? Can it handle it ??

I'm sure it can. I'd be careful, though, as there are ways one could fry a stock converter if you really try, even without a power adder. A good tranny tune would help out here also. As long as you stay with the canned SC tunes, I'm sure it'd be fine.

Thank you.
My comments are purely based on opinion and data that I've found over the years. I'm not pretending, nor do I pretend to be an expert.

Also, I'd suggest you keep your eyes open in this thread. There are more products coming out too, which means there are going to be more opinions and experiences posted. I think those are going to be really valuable and I'm sure you (and me) will learn a lot from them.

JMVHO.

KB FTW
But the cobra has no bottom end as compared to the other 2 - the blowers should have made the Chevy’s feel great down low - even with a KB it is still lazy down low unless you pop the clutch - NO?

I'm jealous. I have the Kenne Bell on my L99 and try as I might, I cannot break 20.5 mpg on the fwy. Not even close. I'm usually at 18-19 mpg. And that's even going 70 mph with not allowing the tach to go beyond 2000 rpms. If I go 80 mph at like 2050 rpms, that drops to 17.5-18 mpg. City driving I'm the same as you.

What am I doing wrong?
