Magnacharger Install Wow!

Well, here a few pictures from today. We started about 9am. David with JIC Performance did a great job on the install. Long day but it was worth it. This thing is unbelieveable. I have to learn to drive again. The torque is incredible.
I have to thank Ted Jannetty for hooking me up on the Maggie Kit and for helping me with the tune over the weekend. Purchased an Hp Tuners Pro to
get the tune a little faster than sending the ECM to California. Tomorrow we are installing Pedders lower coils, and a set of Hawk ceramic pads.

I will get some numbers, but I think we are going to install headers first...

We did the install here in Atlanta. Mark hung around and helped out when a second pair of hands were needed. I'm sending you a PM with more information.

AH no...We were actually standing on frame. I had one heel on edge of frame and other toe on the head with a lean on the fender (I think). I had a solid stance holding weight before squating down. Otherwise I wouldn't have climbed in there Placing the magnacharger was actually very easy. It lined up first time.

I had one foot on the ground, one thigh rested across the fender top and fuse box. As Mark said, he had both feet on the unibody/subframe with minimal weight on the fender edge.

We usually keep the car up a little to keep from bending over so much during the install (your back will thank you!). The sheer width of the Camaro makes it challenging to reach from either side and gently place the supercharger into it's new home without getting creative.

MagnaCharger- Do it yourself

My install was done by myself with assistance with my wife (115lbs) and if we can do this at home by ourselves almost anyone can do this. I found some hose fastener removals to be the most difficult (the heater hoses especially, grab & twist with pliers is the trick). The drilling of the harmonic balancer went easier than anticipated with the purchase of a right angle drill from Sears. A 7 piece set of hose clamp removal tools saved the day. Sent the computer for reprogramming and got it back and running in about 3 days total working 1 whole day and a couple of evenings after work. The feeling of doing it myself is worth alot. Cost of TVS2300 was $6237.50 and a few extra tools to make things easier about $200. But doing it myself, Priceless!!!
ps... We never had to climb into the engine bay. Name:  FAITHFUL ASSISTANT.jpg
