What airbox are you guys running with your maggie's

How much power is to be gained with using an aftermarket airbox with the Magnacharger? Im going to buy the E-force when it comes out and dont want to waste money on a cold air kit if it wont help.

Im in the same boat!
Been talking to ADM to see if their Street kit fits the E-force and they told me that they are currently working on it.

There are rumors that Edelbrock might come up with their own CAI, but that wont happen anytime soon (since they are still dealing with the release of the SC). :(

Do you already order the E-Force? If so, what shipping date did you get?

i have the CAI one....I had it before the supercharger because i was told by them that it would be compatible. It is compatible but not with what they send you. It has to be modified. My installer charged me an extra hour of labor to get the tube to fit.....then an extra hour on the dyno to reprogram the tune to not run lean.......If i had to do it all over again, I would have gone with the roto-fab. When i got hold of CAI, they told me that they are still working on a way to get thiers to be compatible..(does me NO good).....wish I would have known then what i know now! I could have saved a couple hundred bucks!

I'm using the Airaid system, but had it on before the SC install. I had to cut the tube to fit the SC, but have had no problems so far.

http://www.halltechsystems.com/category_s/39.htm This link takes you to a page on Halltech's website that displays different dynos. The third dyno down shows the maggie 2300 with the Halltech Yellow Jacket. The numbers look good.

I was looking for the picture of the Halltech Yellow Jacket installed on the Maggie with the caption that said the Halltech made a 22 HP increase, but I couldn't find it. Although, I have seen that somewhere before. And the fitment looked pretty good too.

I have a Halltech Yellow Jacket and I love it, although my car isn't supercharged.

CAIs that are a direct fit to maggies dont necessarily fit the E-force.
If you look closely the inlet of the eforce has a curve

how much does a CAI can really help an FI Camaro?

I think that if you custom tune 2 SC camaros, one with a CAI and the other with out one, you wont be able to see a big differance between both cars. Please correct me if I'm wrong but I see more benefit on a car thats NA than in a SC one..

Our system is being tested with the NEW E FORCE as we speak.I will have pics and availability once all is final.

We have been doing Maggie versions for a very long time now,no issues!

Ted Jannety took an ADM Street Intake and put it in place of a stock Airbox with stock filter on a Maggie equipped car and gained over 25 rwhp with no other changes.LPE has done the same as have many other ADM Vendors.

We made over 1000 hp and Torque with our race Intake design on the Orange car from my website!

Placement of the sensor in the induction tube and size of the tube it's in is very sensitive. The way power is gained by having more air get through and not metering it will work fine in a N/A car that runs rich anyhow, but a F/I car will have to have a custom tune every time to keep it safe. stock Maggie tune will run over 15:1 A/F with the CAI kit!

The answer is simple, if you are adding 120+ hp to your car than the demands on that air intake have been increased, all the deficiencies of said air intake will show exponentially in regards to boost and power.

For those of you whom are curious to test this all you need to do is put a vacuum gauge on your intake. Obviously 0 is optimal.

We like the roto-fab systems for there cleanliness and simplicity. I'm sure there are a dozen good systems out there. Typically the fewer the bends and the bigger the tubing and filter the better.

Thanks

This car, owned by Centerforce, picked up 40 rwhp from the sealed box to the Airaid box. Maggie tube was modified with stock MAF section. Airaid says they "may" (start calling them) do a tube for these. Airaid did the unit for the Corvette E-Force kit and it wouldn't surprise me if they do the Camaro too.

Love the Roto-Fab on mine. It looks cool so it has to add ponies right! Seriously we used the original plastic tube and had to trim a bit on the engine side but it fits ok. I avoided the polished tube designed for the maggie for fear of heat soak but it might just be me. I don't know if it is a vailid concern.

I plan to run the Roto-Fab on mine too...polished intake tube. I thought about heat soak as well...would plastic be better?
