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?

Maggie, Edelbrock, or Kenny Bell that is the question!

Hi,

OK, I've been doing my reading about superchargers for my L99 camaro now for a while. I keep moving from the center the maggie to the left the edelbrock and to the right the Kenny Bell.

The maggie is the most popular and I hear nothing negative about the product. I like the look. The setup looks easy. The only thing is that shaft with the belt in the back are basically extra moving parts.

The Edelbrock is just starting out and I guess there were a few glitches along the way, but that's to be expected. The claim that the Edelbrock gets a little more low end power is interesting, but why is the internal psi climbing after 5000 RPMs like I saw on someone's dyno sheet? It seems like it's building pressure inside itself and not releasing it anywhere. At first I thought the thing was ugly but it grew on me and I changed my mind. It really looks like a well put together and complete kit. It also resembles the factory GM superchargers alot.

The Kenny Bell they say runs cooler. It makes sense to me if you use something that has a larger capacity it will work less at a lower capacity and make less heat. Less heat makes more power. Everyone say billet is stronger than cast so the KB has the advantage there, but remember even billet was cast into a block. This is all good, but the KB basically starts out at around 8PSI according to their web page. The problem with that is my research here on this thread tells me that 6PSI is the safe number for a stock L99 with no other mods. See the KB page for their specs;

http://www.kennebell.net/supercharge...aro/Camaro.htm

I suppose that if I add long tube headers & larger exhaust pipes the boost might drop down to 6-7PSI. Does anyone know how much the Kenny Bell drops from 8PSI with the starter set of pulleys and long tube headers? But this was not my orignal intention. Remember that I wanted to just put a supercharge on a 100% bone stock L99 and still do.

So I've gone left, right, and center. Each one of these superchargers has it's pros and cons, but it seems the maggie still is the one in my mind that will work the best. The Edelbrock may work just as good as they perfect their product. Either the Maggie or the Edelbock would be great on a stock L99. The KB seems to me to be better if you want more than 6PSI of boost, put it on a higher output modified engine or a larger displacement like a 416 stroker or a LS7 because of the higher CFMs.

To answer your question that I put in bold, boost increases with RPM. The higher the RPM, the more boost. That's why if you drive your supercharged car around and do not press too hard on the gas pedal, you will not use very much boost, and you will not force very much air into your engine (relative to what the supercharger's capabilities are) and you will not drop your MPG very much. Again, that's relative from car to car.

Centrifugal superchargers make more boost at higher RPMs. It's pretty normal for a Vortech supercharger to make around 2-3 psi of boost at 2500 RPMs and then make 7.5 psi at 6000 RPMs.

You asked where the E-Force's boost is going as the RPM's climb? Well, apparently, it's going right to the rear wheels, which is a good thing.

I looked at an E-Force dyno sheet and the rwhp increased by 75 hp from 5000 RPMs to redline. So, the E-Force is making really good linear power as well as gobs of low end torque. Sounds like a good thing to me. And it's doing this with 6-8+ psi. I've seen someone's E-Force thread state that his boost got up to 9 psi. That seems on the high side, so I'm not sure about those numbers.

Remember, your L99 will not make as much power as the LS3's.

The Kenne Bell on my L99 with just a Corsa exhaust makes 470 rwhp at just under 8psi of peak boost, but average boost is around 7psi. That's what I'm told by my tuner, as I still have not seen my dyno sheets. APF's Kenne Bell L99 made 10 more hp with less than 8psi. Of course, our tunes are different.

If you want 6 psi on your completely stock L99, then you need to ask for a very large pulley. And then you will probably have issues with it rubbing on your hood. Remember, if you want max 6 psi, then that will be peak psi. And your car will be averaging like 4-5 psi, which isn't much at all. It will be safe but not very powerful for the money.

Hope this helps a little bit.

Very well covered. One thing not mentioned is the fact that it all comes down to the "air pump"! How much air the engine in its configuration can physically pump through. It is the main restriction in the equation and determines final HP output. Exhaust done to an extreme will play its part (FULL 3 inch w/ longtubes) but again will be limited by the engine/internals.

That is whey they make "blower cams" and "heads". To enable the engine to "breathe" better....

The internal pressure of the E-Force is rising cuz it is hitting the restriction(s) in the system (engine, exhaust). It is still being spun hard and building pressure against that restriction...

When you started this post there were no "real" turbo systems out there. Now there are a couple and perhaps should be considered. Granatelli being one and Hellion the other.

What's your definition of a "real" turbo system? VRE put out their system back in Dec. and Fastlane has had one out for a while now too. Both put out similar numbers which were in the 600+whp range at just 7psi. Unless i'm mistaken, both were using a top mounted 67.

I cant seem to change the poll or edit it anymore, but this is a supercharger thread anyway.

This is a GREAT thread! Thank you for the valuable information. I'm a noob at upgrading cars and I've learned a lot here.

I also have an L99 and I've tried to install mods slowly after doing my homework. I currently have a Cold Air Inductions intake, Kooks LT catted 1 7/8 (coated) headers, 160 deg. thermostat, a Borla Touring exhaust, and a dynotune (AFM is gone). (I've also had the Pfadt sport suspension+ installed.)

I have been reading about cams and forced induction. I think I've abandoned the idea of a cam on an L99. It may be more trouble than it's worth. So, I'm still considering the Magnacharger TVS2300.

Will my CAI intake work with the Magnacharger? If I go with the Magnacharger what else will I need to buy or have installed? After reading this thread it seems that the tvs2300 comes with everything I'd need.

I will also add that I want my car to be very driveable. I will not be doing any serious racing, but I might try a day at the track to drive a few laps just to let it rip a bit. Reliability is a must.

Thanks for any comments you kind folks might have.

IMVHO - you wouldn't go wrong with the Maggy. I know that the KB kit comes complete, too (depending on which kit you get; but I believe the 2.8 should be every bit as complete as the Maggy), but I really don't think you can go wrong with either. Good grunt down low and great up top. There's a lot more exposure with the Maggy but the KB is popping up a lot more and getting great numbers too. I don't know the warranty on the KB yet, but I believe you can get a warranty, for extra cost, with the Maggy kit, too (with limited restrictions).

I believe you can make your CAI work with the Maggie. The Maggie is a complete kit. Just order it, install it, have it dyno tuned because of your headers, and enjoy.

I have the Kenne Bell. Beautiful product.

Yeah, the Magnacharger offers the 3/36,000 mi powertrain warranty.

But the thing that gets me about that kind of warranty from a supercharger company is, what happens if you install the blower, use the canned tune, and something happens to your engine or trans?

Assuming, Magnacharger approves your warranty claim (or whoever does that, maybe a third party warrantor), the limited amount of money you are entitled to will probably not be enough to rebuild a broken engine. And even if it is enough, and you rebuild your engine back to stock, what is going to stop your car from experiencing the same problem again?

And if something else happens after the first warranty claim, most if not all of your warranty money will be exhausted.

Btw, I highly doubt a Magnacharger with their stock, conservative tune would ever harm an engine. I'm just saying.

And regarding Emma, who you were referring to, they would not be entitled to obtain the Magnacharger warranty, because they have headers and would require a custom tune.

I can attest to the C.A.I. brand of intake working with the maggie no problem. And making good numbers 480rwhp and 507 rwtq







The angle at the TB is a little off without modifying but causes NO issues. I went ahead and modified (angle cut) mine to straighten it out a bit.

Driveability is no different (if properly tuned) than stock. Except when you step on it! There are guys at 20000 miles on their SC systems without issue. As long as you don't get nuts and try to run 10psi daily (the general consensus and my tuners as well, is that 8psi is max. At least for 91 octane_

A turbo system is much more complicated. It has to be plumbed into the engine's oil pan for lubrication and depending on the turbo mfg'er, into the engine's coolant system for cooling. There is a lot more plumbing for the required air-to-air IC. Your under hood heat is gonna be higher as you now have a large metal scroll being super heated by exhaust gases.
And unless you get the scroll size matched perfectly to the engine's capabilities you are gonna have lag (too big) or just not make the numbers you want (too small). And it really is irrelevant as the bottom end of our engine's is not gonna like more than 8-10psi, so I would rather have the instant hit from the SC.

The maggie is 100% self contained. It really is a very nice package.

I really like the way the C.A.I. looks with the Maggie. Sweet setup. I've also been told that 8 psi is pretty much max safe boost for 91 octane.

Thanks for the comments and the pictures. It looks like my CAI intake will work fine with the TVS2300. It also looks like the Maggie might add about 120 rwhp? My car currently is making at 362 rwhp (L99 with intake, headers, exhaust, and tune).

That's about right. Maybe 10-25 more hp, depending on the tune and octane.

And which headers are being used. LT's are worth approx 20-25 more than shorties... My numbers are on shorties, no muffs, CAI and 91 octane

The 362 rwhp is with LT headers, intake, exhaust, and a tune. I'm hoping a Maggie will get my close to 500 rwhp.

Don't waste your $$ on the warranty. As been said before, what they pay won't cover your losses and in your case, you've voided it already with your LT's.
