I could build that car for half the price...Do not throw away your money on companies like that.
Lingenfelter is better, but you pay A LOT for that name also!

Its just like buying a computer. you can get a really fast one from alienware with top end parts,but i can build one with the same specs for less than half the price.

I bet it's a new 1900 Maggy'.

I could've swore I read in a post buy one of the Maggy' guys, on another forum, that he's running 8 psi with a TVS 1900 and got 475 to the tire. Maybe Hennnnneeeesssseeeeyyyy is running a 2300 at low boost. That would almost make sense, as that 8 psi TVS 1900 would be making probably around 550 at the flywheel.

Meh - I'd just find me a TVS 1900/2300, catback, maybe upgrade the OEM rotors (if that's even necessary) and a tune and call it a day. Like you guys are saying - you're paying for the name. If that's what ya' like, all the power to ya'.

I agree.
But, make sure you guys do the 2300, and NOT 1900.

Thats what i'm sayin. Why Why Why would you pay extra for the badges you could have your own supercharger installed. As far as a warranty I'm sure GMPP are gonna offer something.

Good for people with more money than sense.

How much profit do you suppose he's making per Camaro? $10,000?
