Maggie is pretty quiet until you add a cog drive. You can do a cog drive just for sound or there's the OD cog drive to spin it harder. Sounds amazing with a cog drive, only problem is that there is no more stealth mode, people know what they are up against.

No worries. I might have to take you up on that. Just out of curiousity, what kind of blower was it? I assume you are going with Procharger this time? I'm still learning all of the abbreviations. Forgive my ignorance. I'm a quick learner though. You ever go over to Rock Falls drag strip outside of Eau Claire, WI?

I actually LOVE the sound of a blower when you are at WOT, but it would be nice to not have to listen to her whine ALL of the time when you are just driving "normal". Hoping to find that perfect balance. My wife and daughter love driving in the car and too much whine might not go over. It is my car, but we like to take it on cruises as a family, so I need to be mindful of how obnoxious she's going to be. Stealth mode isn't all bad anyways.

Not near WOT but this is at 16 psi with the cogs in the read:

Yup, I miss stealth mode. Maggie with no cog drive is what your looking for. Stealth mode until you get into it.

I'm hoping it's old new soon enough. That was the 1st pass of this year. 3/4 clutches were shot which you can hear on the shift and and the suspension wasn't tuned. Just using the Pfadt settings which my car was not happy with.

Yes it's Procharger, they are awesome!! Difference between noise, Roots and twin-screws have a "whine" to them at WOT and get louder when you pulley them down. Centri's are belt driven turbo's and they howl at idle (also gets louder when pullied down) and also have a wastegate which both can sound pretty damn cool

You'll hear a Centri a lot more than a roots or twin...Well I should take that back, maggies with rear cog can be pretty noisey too.

Sounds like a centri blower might be too much for me at this stage? I think it's frickin awesome that you guys are making yours into beasts, but I'm just hoping for another SOLID 100 ponies and a little whine to make me smile as I'm crushing a new 5.0! HA!! Simple pleasures.

You can flip a coin. Either style will work for you. Guys have been making great numbers with the ECS kits. No one tracks them but they make crazy rwhp.

I would hate to see what it does when it's dialed in. I love the way the ass end sits down. Only one word comes to mind FILTHY. Nice vids

In that vid it bounces off the line. Pfadt engineers reviews everything and said that the car bottomed out then the bouncing starting. Pass after that it was worse and snapped a DSS axle like a stick.

Next week we put the settings to full stuff and adjusted the ride height but that was no better.

I'm going this Friday to a private rental with Ted and his chassis guy to dial it in for camaro fest.

Once it's dialed we can crank up the nitrous and hopefully start to go fast.

I've always been partial to centri units, specifically the Prochargers. My bud campaigns a Charger Superbee with an F1 @16psi and a 200 shot. Runs 8.8x's @ 160mph+.

I ran my P1 with between 8 and 11psi on a forged motor, 6.1 hemi and a stage IV cam. Stock intake, stock heads, stock exhaust and no headers. Put down 643 at the wheels and ran 10's for 2 years. That setup lasted 60,000 daily driven miles with no issues. Very forgiving. A little lazy out of the hole, but in the long run saved me from puking out rear diffs and half shafts.

A nice converter quickly covers up the supposed low end torque of the centris. Any properly set up centri car doesn't seem to suffer with any low end tq problems. They out 60' my car.
