You'll never see 900 unless you spray a 200 shot. You're already at 16.4 psi. Much more and it's out if its efficiency range and becomes counter productive.


Accept that or change to a bigger blower.

I have been told this is practical with the Maggie and a properly set up 376 but anything more and its better to go larger displacement.

Just really do not want to put another $7000-$9000 into another supercharger kit as I already have the Maggie and want to try to work with it if possilbe. Just is looking like stock cubes are the wisest direction to go with the Maggie.
Forge your engine. Especially if you just want a stout street ride.

Those are corrected numbers so in reality he is only making ~500rwhp.

Yes, but to make 16psi in this altitude is a feat in itself. That'd be more like 18-19 at sea level, and I'm on the 2.95 pulley, not the 2.75.

My Ysi had no issues making 900+ at elevation. Turbos would have no issues either since wastegages would control the boost.

Yeah for sure, but with a Maggie 16psi is pushing these little blowers.

I completely agree with the turbos, I used turbos on cars previous to this one and am familiar to them in diesel applications as well. They run awesome at altitude, hands down they can make serious boost.
