Thumbs up Magnuson speaks about forced induction and emissions for the future.

Magnuson speaks about forced induction and emissions for the future.

I have an audio track from this week when I met up with Jerry and Maureen Magnuson at the Ventura Auto Sports Gathering in downtown Ventura Ca. on 7-20-08. Rather then just post up the mp3 I added some magnuson factory pictures to it and made a video.
He knew I was recording but I didn't want to just stick the camera in his face the whole time so I put it down and just let him talk (he seemed more fluent and relaxed that way) They are great people, really nice to talk to. Maureen invited me for a personal tour of their facility....and make no mistake... I WILL be going.

It's kinda interesting to hear what he believes the future holds for his company.
You are of course all welcome to discuss.

I WOULD appreciate it if we could keep it on topic and civil...please.

Thanks in advance,

Wm Holden

mileage increase with...the TVS models I assume?
This could bode well for Magnuson.

Is there anything else you spoke with him about?

In any event, I hope to hear more about this very soon!

See, if for some reason we can get a top dog, I can thrown a TVS2300 on my SS and call it good. It's encouraging to see that FI could actually net a gain in mileage. Who would've thunk it?!

Magnuson says "He will build a Super for the New Camaro"

I titled it wrong for you guys over here but this thread here---V

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5540


has him saying he will build it for you if GM won't. at about 4 minutes in he says it.


I hope this helps your nerves.

Their stuff is 50 state emissions legal in most cases!

The only real S/C car experience I have had was in a 03 Cobra with a Kenne Bell @ around 600 RWHP. The owener gave me a ride I will NEVER forget. We were goining at least 90-100 in a 35 zone on PCH.

Talk about crazy!!

A roots-style charger is a VERY close second to my dream of a LS-series motor with two BIG hair-dryers hanging out front!

The S/C cars are probably more fun to drive because of the instant torque, but to me, nothing is quite as awesome as the sound of two mini turbines spinning 100K RPM!!

Result: I will have a S/C and a Turbo car

I've seen it in person. As for having wm holden and alleykt show me what a car with power feels like. They're both in SoCal and have v8's. I drive a 4 banger and I'm sure I'll be in SoCal before I buy my convertible in 2010.

OK, maybe this was off-topic? Guess I missed the point. Oh well. Cheers. EDIT: it was a cool video, nonetheless.
