    That might not have been very usefull to you, but I was just proud to comprehend what you guys where talking about. So I thought it was time for my .02...
    Cool
    Yeah, this is the best thing I can think of so far. Simple and effective

    Well the good news is that the gaskets are a GM part and available at a local dealer so I don't have to wait until tomorrow.


    TONY - If your gaskets are two pieces with the 4 ports rings connected to eachother then you may have the wrong ones. The correct ones (for the manifold I got at least) are actually 8 individual O-rings.

    Damn,,,,,,I don't know
    You just got me super confused now. Didn't take a good look at them.
    Just checked the online manual. I think mine are like those. Are your correct ones like that? And were the wrong ones much different.
    Can't check them till tonight, so I'd be stuck till Tuesday.

    To me, this is a bigger competition than if we were side by side at a light

    Re: Everything I ever wanted to know about a Maggie,,,and your gonna tell me!!!

    Update's not too good. Called Tom. He went out and bought stock gaskets, and they fit his Maggie.
    I just checked my gaskets. They are the ones in the pictures in the manual. They will NOT fit on my stock intake. Matched them up to the Maggie, and they fit.
    TOM--Maggie gaskets dont fit stock intake or Maggie, but stock gaskets fit both.
    TONY--Maggie gaskets fit Maggie, but not stock intake.
    Do I have the wrong f*n supercharger?!!!
    Does anybody remember what thier gaskets looked like? The maggie (mine) is on gasket on each side. The stock (Toms) is eight idividual gaskets.
    Waiting on a call back from Magnuson,,,,,,,and a lil pissed

    Mine was 8 indivdual "O' rings, interchangeable with either the maggie or stock manifold.

    LS6 though.

    UPDATE - I just downed some Aleve to help with the aches in my back and knees. Geez and I'm only 25 years old.

    A buddy and I just put in 9 hours tonight and everything is done except re-installing the radiator, mounting the heat exchanger and intercooler pump (with related plumbing), and wiring the magnavolt to the fuse box. Somewhere around step 150.

    I've already tucked away everything I could with zip ties (taking special care around the back of the supercharger and the back pulleys).

    Crank Bolt - tried an impact wrench with no luck (I was worried at that point) and went to a breaker bar + pipe and it came right off.

    STUPID wiring that hold the injector electrical plugs. It took a hell of a lot of finagling to get the maggie down and in positon. The looms holding those wires might as well have been made out of lead pipe.

    I will start again tomorrow morning and should finish by early afternoon if all goes as well as it did today.

    I was 55 when I did mine - needed Wild Turkey to wash the Aleve down

    Watch the wiring behind the s/c - but there are a lot of opportunities to tie wrap stuff to the rear of the engine compartment.

    One other note - if you drive it like a grandmother, you won't see much change in gas mileage. If you drive it like it should, get used to single digit mileage numbers.
