If they can give you special dealer pricing for a bulk order, it should save a significant amount. If they give you bulk pricing as a retail order, maybe not as much. Thoughts?

Maybe if a few of us that live not too far apart we can organize a weekend road trip to some place with a large garage/warehouse where we can all install together.
Or maybe a place with a Dyno where we can get some bulk dyno time to baseline before install, baseline after install, and then after fine tuning.
Just thinking out loud...

I am all for the group install. I actually have a couple places that coudl work local for me, or we could try to arrange something closer to a larger group of folks...

As for pricing..I am approaching people as a dealer so that I can get the best deal possible for us all. I am not going to mark up anything, as I want a system just as much as you all do.

Now I have heard from Procharger whom said we coudl try to work something out, and I am also in discussions with a well known F-body company who builds custom turbo setups who said we could also try to work something out. Would any of you be interested in either of those deals???

I can run both deals if I can get enough people for each...I would think 10 a piece would get us some good pricing cuts... Post on here, AND PM ME IF INTERESTED< THAT IS HOW I KEEP A LIST!!!!

I was going to opt for the 21" rims - but spending $4,600 is crazy.
I will put that towards a supercharger instead.

I also want to wait until I get the car break the motor in while it's natually aspirated.

Then I would think - according to my Chevrolet Parts Dept. - We will get a GM Perfomance Supercharger through GM??

Not sure - I work for the dealer so I get 10% over our cost

i have the procharger setup on my current truck. other then having to find a tuner for it i'm pretty happy with it. i would probably go with them again if you can get the group going unless magnuson or another brand can prove that there better.

interesting, i know thats probably the only thing i dont like about teh procharger is on my truck it takes forever it seems like to hit full boost, on teh bottom end just seems like its still N/A. i know its not though, guess i'm just getting to used to it.

wm holden

did the magnuson kit come with different injectors or a booster pump or what? i know the procharger kit came with a aux fuel pump and a FMU. how does the mag kit handle the extra fuel needs? i only ask cuz your sig says no other mods.

It would be interesting to see if either ATI or Magnuson has any insight with regards to the computer interface on the L99.

I am going to get a Supercharger, eventually. Hopefully a good Powerful kit will be out based off the Eaton Fourlobe (more than likely Magna).

One thing is for sure...I wont be getting a centrifical, if I was to go the snail shell route, then I would just Twin Turbo. However if your going to boost this car, then you need a PD roots-style Blower.....Just my opinion.

I want to see someone with a true Blower, sticking out of the Hood, producing an insane amount of boost. I would love to go this route if I was buying it to be a Track and Show car, but this is going to be my daily driver.

Well one thing we must consider is what kind of horespower/torque you want. If you want more horespower/torque in the lower RPMs you'd be better off woth a roots type/twin screw supercharger. Centrifugal S/C's get you more horespower/torque on the top end.
