I hear the Maggie sees more heat soak. Do they have an intercooler or cooler built into the manifold?

Yes they do but you can only fit so much under there, and with the case of most PD blowers, not enough to prevent heat soak in many situations. You can upgrade the tank, pump, HE etc but why not buy a system that doesn't need a bunch of upgrades?

Funny that a tvs 2300 car is the fastest street car on here.

Come on I don't think you really know what heat soak means. A tvs 2300 is not going to get heat soaked on the street.

No offense but if you need to finance a supercharger you shouldn't get it. What happens if the engine should blow?

I used to hate my centri ( d1sc) but now with methanol let me tell u that i will always get a centri... Mine is 830 rwhp and it is my dd car..also, centries are more easy on other parts

D1 or ecs kit.. Can not go wrong with either.. If i were u i would go with ecs kit for the 10 rib belt.. But still i think ati have a 10 rib setup for the camaro..

Come on I don't think you really know what heat soak means. A tvs 2300 is not going to get heat soaked on the street.
quickest in the quarter probably. Fastest mph doubt it.


Anyway regarding the waiting for boost comment that everyone is responding to. It was a very legitimate statement since max boost isn't achieved until higher rpm on centrifugals. When daily driving it is something that is very noticeable, especially if you have ever driven a screw type car.

To the OP. I still feel that you made the right decision. Better potential for growth, and no heatsoak issues and when you are actually racing the "waiting for boost" thing doesn't exist because your in the powerband already. I'm also not saying it's a bad thing because it's not like a turbo where you feel it come in it just feels like a linear progression of power....almost like being N/A but with a lot more power. I know you will enjoy it!

What is the hype?

I am not a troll. I am new at the supercharger thing. What is the attraction of this supercharger over the others? Does it make power sooner? Is it more efficient? Is the design inherently different and thus offering some special advantages? Size, weight, etc.

Is it easier or harder to fit under the hood? I looked at some pictures on some sellers sites and it wasn't clear.


Thanks


Jim

They both have their ups and downs. Some prefer twin screws and some like centrifugal. Screws make boost earlier and very suddenly, centrifugal do pretty much the exact opposite. centrifugal I suppose it less prone to heat soak and may in the end be able to make more horsepower. You just have to decide where, where and how you want your power and what you plan to do with your car.

It's been there since I got home from the camaro fest. Whenever that was. But its all mine.. It has 17k miles on it. The wife and I have even taken it on some 6hr, one way trips in the dead heat of summer.
