I do not have much experance with turbo's so I do not know what the deal is as in maintenance and so forth? Also how much was it for the complete install on your twin turbo system from Granatelli?

Isnt it true that with a turbo on a stock engine I have to worry more about the internals than I would with a maggie?

The turbo will last an easy 100k miles. They are maintainance free. The get lubrication from the engine oil as well so every oil change is an oil change for the blower too

You will not have to replace the turbos - I am sure of it

We get $1100 foir an install or $1600 for install with custom tune on the camaro. However you can do the install yourself with relative ease

NO - that is not true at all. Lets say you wanted to limit the rwhp to 550. You could do that with a turbo with less boost and less stres on the crank. That is not to say the Maggie stresses the crank either but there is load created by the Maggie that you would not have with a turbo set up

I have an L99 with a CAI intake, Kooks 1 7/8" LT catted (and coated) headers, a Borla Touring exhaust, and a dynotune. I was a bit disappointed with the results on the dyno of 362 rwhp with these mods. The car is faster than stock (and sounds WAY better), but I want more. I thought the headers would give me more with the tune.

So, I'm looking at getting either a Maggie or a turbocharger. I am a bit leary of adding a cam because I've heard they are very tricky on an automatic.

I don't plan to race my car - except for perhaps a fun day at the track, but no serious racing. But, I do want the best and baddest street machine I can get. It is very important to me that my car be absolutely reliable and drivable on the street, but I want my car to be very quick. I really love driving my Camaro and I don't want to do anything to ruin that. - some folks have commented that a cam can sometimes harm drivability.

After reading this thread, it sounds like the Maggie is more what I' should be considering, but others have mentioned that a turbocharger might be better. I'm just doing my homework before I jump in.

Is it reasonable that I could get 500 rwhp by adding a Maggie to my L99?

The other advantage of a Maggie is I think they just look great. - I know, that's shallow, but a lot of the mods on my car have been cosmetic. I am looking into buying a hood with a plexiglass window on it to show off the engine. A chrome Maggie would look sweet!

Any comments as to what you folks would recommend for my car would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Darth, you may also be interested in our HTV1900 supercharger fro Harrop. We currently have a FREE install special going on, check it out in the vendor sale section.

Considering LS3s are getting right near 500 RWHP on an otherwise totally stock car, with the OEM airbox too, I think you'd get there pretty easily, or dang near close, with a conservative tune. LS3 cars, with your similar mods', are averaging (from what I've noticed) from 510-530+ RWHP; add a CAI and you'll probably get past 500 to the tire pretty easily with a custom tune; I don't believe the canned Maggy tune accounts for full exhaust, like you have, and a CAI. I'm pretty sure you'd get to 500 pretty easily at about 6-7 psi.

500 with the Magnuson is a non issue even with the auto trans and I don't see why you would need a cam change. I agree the chrome Maggie smack in the center of the hood looks great. - We are happy to sell you a system as well

Likewise, you already know about our turbo system as well. 500 with the turbo is even easier - Here is an auto trans dyno sheet at low boost. Stock fuel pump with BAP

JR great insightful post

i am in toronto Canada area

in the past i have owned 2 87 grand nationals

so i like the turbo feel and sound

now i have a 2010 ss2 6 spd manual

i was leaning to a procharger system through the advise of a friend who works with them on many applications

i have a cousin who has an 80 vette 350ci stroked out to 383
heads done, cam

he installed an sts turbo system
8 lbs of boost he ran 10.91 with 1.72 short time on street tires

car squats hooks and goes

after reading all this i will look into turbo set up for mine

it is a daily driver...bone stock but is getting lowered 1inch with eibach springs and maybe an axle back borla s system just for extra growl

what do you recommend

gas is always 91 from shell but 94 from sunoco is also available

thanks

BOB
