Re: Anyone have a Procharged V?
I have a C6 with a ProCharger, no issues, I will not say it is a better choice than a Maggie for a V application, as not sure of your goals. My Maggie 112 has never gotten over 7.5psi, if you want more, go with the PC. If you have either a stock LS6 or stock LS2, you can run 12psi on PC with no issues provided you have a good tune and good fuel. I agree 100% with what Bob said, the 2,500rpms spent in first gear in a V with a PC is not significant, as you cannot launch a stock rear. With that said, my Maggie was purchased in late 2005, at a time when no one else was stepping up to give us a power adder, so I am grateful to Magnuson, and to me loyalty is very weighty.
Enjoy your V and treat her to some new HP.
Thanks for the info and input from everyone so far. I'm pretty sure the procharger setup would be the route I'd end up going with. Don't get me wrong, I love the instant power of the maggie's but I also love the progressive top-end, "turbo-like" power. Also, these V's seem to run pretty hot as it is and I really don't like the heat-soak traits of the maggie. Someone mentioned they're F1 would heat soak because of some clearance issues but I think with the D1 I'd have less issues with that. My overall goal is just to have a quick, fun, great sounding setup....not looking to set any dyno or 1/4 mile records. They more I hear about the PC setups, the more I'm wanting one...sounds like the route to go for me.
