Have you installed a Supercharger yet?

Just wondering if anyone has put a supercharger on your car yet?
I'm really interested in getting one, but want to get a little feedback first.

I just was taken for a short ride in a new twisted slayer LMR camaro. All that I can say is wow! Very smooth while cruising and at the same time when you step into it the car pins you to the seat lock a rocket sled. Looks like LMR has a high quality organization from what I can see. Plan to put a twisted package on mine when it comes in.

Hope you haven't dropped a deposit with the Techco folks. I think they're kaput....out of business.

That's 'cuz they work and work well. They don't break and the engines under them don't break if tuned correctly. It's just a good, well though out, setup that pleases just about anyone who owns or has ridden in a TVS powered car. No need to change just for change's sake. I hope my TVS powered vette continues to be boringly reliable and amazingly fast. I'm betting it will.

Just did a d1sc procharger for a customer in 5 days, with a cam install



8psi, and great drive ability, with a good margin of safety.

What are you concerns or feed back you are looking for out of the super charger? I can answer any questions you have on all the kits on the market currently, from installation to results, and pros and cons. Just lay it out there

Regards
-Brandon

I did the Complete Magnuson Kit on a Customers a few weeks ago. The car had 12 miles on it. I have to say I was very impressed with the ease of the install and how complete the kit was. It was a breeze to do. What I really like is that it still has a warranty on it. The car has an air intake and Exhaust and is a Dream to drive. Combined with the suspension kit it makes for one heck of a ride. The cars really need a hew shifter installed, the factory bushing wear pretty quickly resulting in a sloppy feel, to me anyway.

it depends on the system, and your horsepower goals.

For example, bolt on a magnacharger system, or a procharger system. Both systems are all inclusive, and require no extra modifications, for the advertised horsepower. Now if you want more power you will have to upgrade other components on the car. The upgrades are all relative to your output goals.

Since when do superchargers not void warranty? Is it a certain place to get it done or am I just missing something?
