I have a TVS 2300 Maggie and I'm happy with it, no issues so far and I live in Dubai where the temperature goes up to 50 degrees Celsius during summer!!

I've heard good stuff about Whipple 2.9 too

Depends on what you want. If you want 500rwhp and leave it there, ok. If you want 600+ or more power later, there are better options. Even for just 500hp I think there are better options.

Not entirely true if he had a small supercharger pulley and other mods

True you can make 600+ with other mods, smaller pulleys, etc. You just spend a lot more money to do it.

$7500 for a magnacharger
$1300 for headers
$350 for CAI
$250 for OD cogs
$350 for BAP
$450 for bigger injectors
$90 for smaller pulley

Now you make 600rwhp. Or bolt on a TT kit for $7500, set it to 7-8psi make 600rwhp. More torque, more top end, no heat soak issues, and can turn it up later when you want.

You can catch some great deals on Maggies from vendors so thats a plus. But wouldn't be my 1st choice if wanting a PD blower. I'm a super fan of the whipple, but also ECS makes great kits if you consider centrifugal blower aswell.

But in the end, what ever you pick will be fun. These big tanks come alive with any type of FI.

I'm totally out the ordinary and went with a vortech-lysholm 2300 and love it.

more like
$5400 for tvs2300
$100 to pulley down
$300 for CAI
$400-$1200 for headers.
$250 for zl1 pump
Injectors come with kit.

I love my tvs 2300.

Love my Maggie!! Don't think you can really go wrong with any of the new FI systems though. Pull the trigger. You'll LOVE it! It really wakes them up.

Your at 574 with stock maggie injectors?

I agree your prices are in line with what you should pay from vendors on here. But that's catching some pretty good deals?

Stock Maggie injectors won't do 600rwhp. Add some catchcans too. Then all the labor to put those parts in. Then when belt slip issues show up add the super tensioner/etc.

Thank you!

Even though our supercharger kit is installed here most often, we have installed a bunch of the Lysholm kits too and the customers have been very happy with them.

It all depends on what your goals are @ the end of the day. Will the maggie give you the biggest RWHP numbers? Probably not. Is the Maggie one of the most fun setups to drive on the street? Probably yes. What do you want out of your setup and how do you plan to use it is the million dollar question. For me it was and still is the Maggie. May not have the biggest numbers but how many others on the forum have broke into the 10's @ 557 RWHP, Drag radials and boat anchors up front..NO Cam.?? We do always want more so I just installed a cam "Night Fury" (652 RWHP) and hope to be mid to low 10's now... Still probably wont never be a 9 sec car but I like it.

We have been using the Magnuson blowers for years. Great streetable horsepower along with reliability. You can't go with them. If you have any questions let me know!

I could not be happier with my Maggie. End game performance level with my car will be around 650 to 700 rwhp which is about tops for a Maggie fitted 376 without getting REALLY crazy and expensive.

Right now around 550 rwhp and love all the low end torque the Maggie produces. My car is a 100% street car, could not be happier with the Maggie for my purpose.

Yeah, they are the ls9 injectors, with good fuel pressure I think most good shops can get 600wrhp with them.

I think Maggie is a solid choice. I'm sure you'll be happy with it.
