I like the looks on mine better than the new one, which looks awfully big. The Vette one looks better.

Looks better, but anyone who shops for a blower based on looks needs to have their heads checked for mental illness.

It would be real easy to pop the hood and say it stock if you removed the supercharger emblems, has a stealthy look to them both.

I was going to say dragged out into the street and shot but I thought that was a bit rough. It amazes me how many people do maggies because they "look" cool.

y so? maggie, slp, wipple, edelbrock, procharger. they are all good. just depends on what you want in a supercharger. some people like the look when the hood is popped. i dont like the look of a centrifical charger and would never get one personally. i had a magnacharger on my gto and it looked like a waffle iron. the slp had a nice look to it so i went that route.

I agree....when you spend this kinda money on your car you get what you want. If ascetics come in to play then I'm not gonna fault them. All the systems perform and if they meet your needs more power to ya !

Agreed, if two or three systems meet your needs then take account which looks better. But a lot of people buy them just for looks, without taking performance into account. They just want something for a car show. Now if you want 500hp and both choices will get you there, then hell yes buy what you think looks prettier. If you want a blower just to pop the hood and show off, that just isn't my thing. I guess it would be like putting chrome 22-24" wheels on the car. To each their own but it seems silly to me.

I cant see buying it for looks.... I could care less how the old one looks and the new one looks.... I want more development!

They are all good choices but become quite different as you approach 700 hp.

This is a matter of opinion. Like anything else we put on our cars.

It does look pretty clean. But also does not look like it has a superchatger at all.
