List of Intakes that will work with the TVS-2300 MagnaCharger

I have e-mailed and called so many CAI people trying to find out if there product will work with the MagnaCharger TVS-2300.I have gotten a few to say it should work.I purchased a LMR CAI and realized it want flex enough to fit up to a MagnaCharger TVS-2300.I am going to be doing a TVS-2300 install on my SS in just a few weeks and still haven't found much out there that will work for sure.Please chime in if you know of a CAI that will work with the TVS-2300....

How do you like it ???

The intake itself looks nice,but the heat shield looks like there isn't much to it....

The Hennessey CAI is about the only one I see that will work for sure....

I'm pretty happy with it... sounds great too. The shield is pretty much like all the rest. I've seen quite a few different shrouds and most are just a piece of sheetmetal or plastic bolted to the fender well. I think everyone is starting to refine their shrouds to look better than the prototypes...

I'll take a photo of mine tomorrow and post it here. In the meantime I took some photos a while back at some prototypes... check out post#29

What they send in there kit is a tuned tube and a K&N filter to replace the stock filter....

You use your stock air box....

They recommend using there set up and I have had several tuners say use there set up....

I agree. I like the stock look. I don't put much faith in cold air intakes. The tvs2300 has twin rotors pulling a ton of air. It wasn't designed to need one of those things, why bother?

GMPP have dry, high flow filters, and typically draw from the cold air in the fender, as opposed to drawing air from under the hot hood. the box appears to be in same spot, so the few i have bought have perfect fitment, and work without getting oiled up maf sensor.

We will be testing a popular intake for use with the TVS on mine later this week...Me or the Manufacturer will be keeping you up to date with the results...It will be interesting to see how much additional power this intake makes on a forced induction application like this one.

Our induction system will work with the TVS2300. A different coupler is needed as the pipe comes off the Throttle body and we do sell these individually to customers who have purchased the intake before buying the blower.

Speak to you soon,
James

If you use your stock set up people will think it came factory supercharged. Ask me how I know

Bringing this thread to the top... can we get more answers on what CAI to use for the TVS2300 magnacharger. I have one installed with the stock Airbox and what Magnuson provided. Please let me know why you chose the CAI as well. Thanks in Advance
