Stalker! Lol. Thanks. I'll give them a call this week. My head hurts from deciding between a mag or whipple. I think I need to hear it in words.

My wife gave me the thumbs up for one- so it looks like I'll be pushing over my 550rwhp thought.

Hey Andy! Thank you and also thank Eric for recommending you guys. I don't see why I would have anyone else build my Camaro now. I see you have Grand Blanc under your criteria for a location...Do you have a shop in Grand Blanc? I'm up near Midland in a small town called Freeland.

Do you like your Magnuson so far? Do you see yourself chosing another blow if you could go back into time?

I'm still worried about losing warranties switching out for LT ARH Headers and a Supercharger.

Where the photos of your car??

I love my maggy,,, it was the only chrome blower out and I could get engine covers from roto-fab,,, that's why I went with it... the whipple is a great blower built from the ground up,,, at the time no engine covers were available,, but roto-fab now makes them... if all things were equal with chrome blowers being available I would go with the whipple.. I wasn't worried about how much hp I made,,, I have 586 and its more than enough for the way I drive. my car will never see a dragstrip. no regrets on the maggy though it runs great !!! you might be able to get a maggy for less than a whipple

here are a few pics

We may need to meet up next spring/summer. Your ride is one of my favorites as of yet. I'm sending you a PM about other questions.

If like to hear the positives you have with yours. Also, what's your reasoning over Magnuson?

I actually used to live in Grand Blanc, now I live in Davison, but our shop is in Dearborn Heights.
