I currently have a Cold Air Inductions intake, Kooks LT catted 1 7/8 (coated) headers, 160 deg. thermostat, a Borla Touring exhaust, and a dynotune (AFM is gone). (I've also had the Pfadt sport suspension+ installed.)

I have been reading about cams and forced induction. I think I've abandoned the idea of a cam on an L99. It may be more trouble than it's worth. So, I'm still considering the Magnacharger TVS2300.

Will my CAI intake work with the Magnacharger? If I go with the Magnacharger what else will I need to buy or have installed? After reading this thread it seems that the tvs2300 comes with everything I'd need.

I will also add that I want my car to be very driveable. I will not be doing any serious racing, but I might try a day at the track to drive a few laps just to let it rip a bit. Reliability is a must.

Thanks for any comments you kind folks might have.
IMVHO - you wouldn't go wrong with the Maggy. I know that the KB kit comes complete, too (depending on which kit you get; but I believe the 2.8 should be every bit as complete as the Maggy), but I really don't think you can go wrong with either. Good grunt down low and great up top. There's a lot more exposure with the Maggy but the KB is popping up a lot more and getting great numbers too. I don't know the warranty on the KB yet, but I believe you can get a warranty, for extra cost, with the Maggy kit, too (with limited restrictions).
