    What works well with a maggie?

    I'm about to purchase a magnuson super charger for my 07 CTS V, and was hoping some of you may have some insight as to what performance mods work well with the super charger to produce a little more hp(would like to be around 500 RWHP). I have looked at a few options including a different pulley size for more boost. I want to keep the vehicle reliable and strong enough to stand up to more power. I'm guessing the tuning that comes with the super charger kit won't work if you make extra mods(is this correct)? Any ideas or advice would be helpful...Thanks!

    A great compliment to a s/c is headers and exhaust. Problem with a smaller pulley is there's only so much boost you can run on pump gas. Tuning is a must. Heads and cam are great too.

    headers, LS9 cam and 10% overdrive harmonic dampener will get you close.

    lolly, you're consfusing overdrive with underdrive. FOrced induction users what OVERdrive while N/A like yourself want undedrive. Also when buying an overdrive kit, the rest of the pulleys are appropriately sized so they still run at normal speed as opposed to a underdrive pulley where the intent is to reduce the drive speed.

    I blacked out, what happened? Lol, sorry I didn't catch that.

    And $1100 for pulleys? F that.....I'd throw Nitrous on there for that price.

    I agree its very pricey but they have the market cornered as i don't know anyone else that sells a full 10% overdrive kit with all the pulleys... But going to an 8rib will definitely help with any slip if he decides to go to a 2.6 s/c drive pulley

    I'm running just that damper, without the extremely overpriced accessory pulleys. Yep, the PS pump and other accessories see a few more RPM's, I think the extra airflow more than makes up for that extra parasitic drag.

    Is that damper the one that has to be pinned for the supercharger install?

    I'd through in a Walbro 255 and Hotwire kit, so you don't have to rely on a pump booster... Go bigger if you plan on e85
