I have no troubles with my maggie and no heat issues at well over 15 lbs of boost. I would go with a maggie unless you want more power then you can use.

I vote Magnuson
I only have 500rhp, but kissing the 11s at the track with my best time on a hot lap speaks pretty well.

My goal for now - I'd LIKE to see 600rwhp. I REALLY want very strong torque at low RPM's like 2,000 - 2,500. I keep defaulting on the Maggie but I keep reading they get hot when you start feeding the engine more boost. I have Kooks 1 7/8 headers with corsa cat back so I'll be upgrading to the 3.6 and CAI shortly after (not right away).

Your thoughts?
Given your application and desire I have to steer you toward a Maggie.

If you said forged stroker, lower compression, fuel system, injectors and 15+ psi boost, in my future then I have to steer you toward a Whipple.

That is really the defining factor.

At 600-650 RWHP the Maggie is Happy and Cool as a Clam.

From what I understand the Maggie is a hybrid(roots blower) so the compression builds up in the manifold. And the whipple is a real twin skrew(the pressure builds in the blower) could someone explain why you would want one over the other? I'm making the plunge this week into a S/C.

Keep in mind that the TVS roots supercharger is used as a factory supercharger on the CTS-V (1900) and the ZR1 (2300).

OP, You need to ask yourself what YOU are aiming for in your goal. I would highly suggest picking up the phone and getting some advice from the shops that sell and install the systems, this will give you first hand information. There is allot of "behind the scenes" drama that goes on at the point of install that most end users do not see.

My .02: Magnuson has a great history, there is not a supercharger manufacture around that has been developing supercharger systems longer than them. Do not make your choice based on BIG HP numbers, make your choice based on the selling dealers support after the sale.

If you have any questions please feel free to give us a call, even if you decide to buy it someplace else...we are here to answer your questions.

I went with the Edelbrock and I have to say that I love it. I have a automatic and a cat back exhaust. Tom Henry Racing did all my work and I highly recommend them. Good luck with whatever you decide but I would give Edelbrock a look.
