Livernois Motorsports - Magnacharger TVS 2300 Purchase and Installation

I recently purchased and had the supercharger installed on my LS3 by Livernois. The cost was reasonable and I’m very pleased with the performance results. The staff I dealt with was quite professional and communication was excellent.

If you’re considering any upgrades and they are in your geographic area, suggest you give them consideration. They also provide a long distance pickup and delivery service which worked out great for me.

Thank you Livernois for the outstanding service. You know how to please a customer.

Yes, that is installed, dyno tuned, with fluids, plugs, 160* stat, and the 60# injector upgrade (they usually come with the stock ZR1 injectors).

We of course offer higher boost options, along with header, camshaft, cai, etc. Options

Neither We use (and in this case, for this customer include) our Xtreme-cal Tuning interface. This allows us to email him updated tune files if he changes his combo around. It's a great benefit for a customer that isn't local. It also has capabilities built into it that EFI and HPT does not

What is the cost of the pickup and delivery service? Also, how long did they have your vehicle?

The pickup and deliver service is Dependant on your location as we send our truck and enclosed trailer from our facility to you and back when we pick it up, and when we finish.

We strive to have a 1 week turnaround time for the blower install, but we will always work with you if you have specific days you request (of course, within reason) The OP requested weekend pickup and drop off, so we had it a little longer partially to do with this.

We even can schedule 2 cars to be picked up in the same location with our stacker trailer if need be. Below are a couple of pictures of our stacker picking up 2 g8's:





But we also have the single car hauler as well. Thank you for all of your pm's regarding this, and our other services

It is undecided as of right now, in all honesty it will depend on the cost vs. hp compared to the magnacharger.

Looking at Lingenfelter for polished... They advertise 570 hp w/o exhaust upgrades. The dyno posted shows 534. Can you elaborate? Or Is Lingenfelter using flywheel #'s?

Since you are local, what pricing can you offer for polished?

Lingenfelter probably use a smaller pulley, i see they have the Kenne Bell boost a pump in the list of upgrades which makes me think that. they have the black one in their package of 570 hp for 11k

so you are paying a lot more for that (4k), Lingenfelter has a great rep and top notch place for sure, but that is a big price difference. Im sure Livernois would boost the psi up to 8-9 to get that HP for not a whole lot more $$. Most people consider 7 psi the safe limit on stock internals, I really don't know what the safe HP limit is on these engines stock bottom end, but im betting 600 is pretty close.

After i get my car and drive it for a bit ill probably get the bottom forged and run a tiny pulley that will get me 15 psi or so. That's what i ended up doing in my truck, started with 6.0 swap, kenne bell, 8 psi. i was always pretty worried about blowing a piston or something so i got a forged 408 and sleep better now. It will probably cost me about the lingenfelter price for it.

LPE's 570 HP Package is not 570 RWHP... Most Camaro5 members who purchased LPE's 570 package is reporting 520 - 530 RWHP.

It looks like the Livernois package is a really good deal. Below is the difference in the LPE package. Mine made about 520rwhp on 6psi with a pretty safe tune.

The base TVS2300 install package for LPE is also $8995 and not $11k.

To go to the $10995 - you get fuel system upgrades, Boost Bypass Control, Boost-a-Pump, Roto Fab CAI (LPE style), fender badges and a 3yr 36k warranty.

I will check on the polished system for you as I am not currently at work.

As it's been posted, these were RWHP numbers, and most other people are advertising FWHP with their packages. If someone were wanting to add, say, a CAI, BAP, badging, and a 3yr/36k warranty it would bump the price ~1500 for anyone wanting to know.
