I am simply amazed at the power difference it is from stock to blown....it is simply an insane amount of power that just doesn't stop...and this was on the canned magnuson tune....and the best part is the driveabilty, drives just like stock with no whine or extra noise when just cruising ...drove just like my car....only a hell of alot faster :lildevil: and of course we did a small race from a dig......needless to say it wasn't pretty...I was on it as hard as I could be and he was rolling into the throttle easily...and put around 4-5 cars on me by ~60-70....so anyone with the cash that has been pondering it....do it, you won't be dissapointed.....now for me I am hooked and will have to order a nitrous kit pretty damn soon to cope with my new found addiction. :alchi:

Maggies might be great, but a Procharger is better for the bottom end...

Just hold on though, i am fixated on NA power and once i finish up my engine setup i shall post my numbers...

A Centrifugal supercharger has nowhere near the bottom end torque of a Roots or twin screw type blower.

I think that was his point actually.

Lower torque ends up being easier on the bottom end of the engine.

I was talking about the bottom end of the engine itself.

Crank, rods, etc...

Big torque is what kills that stuff. Since the procharger makes power higher in the RPM range, and less torque, then it would be easier on the hard parts in the bottom end of your engine.

THE maggie on the other hand makes more power down low and to achieve the same horsepower as a procharger it would make more torque, therefore putting more strain on the bottom end.

This is a very loose way to explain it, but you get the idea.

Gotcha. I was thinking you meant bottom end torque.

I had a Vortech Centrifugal on a Miata and it was blast, but needed RPMs to crank the boost out. With the traction problems out of the hole that a CTS-V has (not to mention already having 400 ft/lbs of torque stock), I'd go centrifugal on my V if I went FI. Whoops- getting off topic. :lol:

why it's a habit for some of you guys to turn the traction/stability off when you get in the car is beyond me...I'm in my 20's and have more common sense than that....your not on a race track and your not mario andretti. If you wanna play around and drive 'aggressively' sign up for an autoX for starters and then buck up and get on a road course....the safety features were put there for a reason...

At least you didn't wipe out into another car, or whack a curb.

Are you street racing, driving aggressively?
Its funny to see the same guy that lectured me for putting my car in competitive driving mode talk about such things.

I must have missed it, you were at a track right?

... NA or FI is still going through my mind. ...Personally, I had no problem making this decision. If you stay NA and try to get more power, you have to move the torque curve to the right and sacrifice low-end power and thus street driveability. I'm not crazy about needing to have the motor screaming to develop power ... too old, I guess.

Going FI (in particular, a Maggie) makes the car drive so well on the street without the need to be at 4500+ RPM all the time. Get caught at a light in the wrong gear? No problem. Just put your foot into it, and as heavy mentions you just reel them in. Just don't melt your tires. :D (BTW, no pesky bottles to fill, either.)

Do it, Rob. Do it. :yup:

I agree 100% with rander49er, FI is the way to go if you want alotta power & still maintain driveability and economy .
Try to drive a car on the street with 800+ rwhp if it were na, Plus the mpg are not effected much until you use the power. I still get 21 mpg on the highway and average 14, the average is higher than when it was stock, I sure the reason being I don't get into it as much since it can be flat out dangerous, have to learn to modulate the throttle all the way up to to about midway through 4th gear & with drag radials no less. But the point is there is no way to get this much power & still be streetable if it were NA

stkshkr is not far off staying with a C6 Z06. The problem is the extra, what, 700 lbs. that the V is carrying around? That makes it difficult, but I would think heavy's maggied '03 Z06 should be about there considering the weight.

Chris,
Congrats, I know you waited a long time for this, so enjoy your investment. Call me on your H/C choices, as they are so great options available. You may want to consider a rotating assembly, much cheaper than stroker motor and will relieve concerns about breaking something down low.

Now to the others:
Maggie on a V is the shizzle, the ProCharger is good, but I will never say better; drive both each week, and the Maggie still impresses. The Maggie will impress you on launch, the ProCharger will impress you on redline shifts, both are great, not necessarily better. ProCharger has potential for huge power (I know of no CTS-V, Vettes, GTOs, etc... with Maggies at 600+RWHP), and if that is your pursuit, go with it. Maggie has great street manners and the whine is way cool (yes, I am relocating to The Valley). The ProCharger may save your rear on hard launches, but once you go over 500RWHP you will lose one on a hard 1-2 or 2-3 shift-been there, done that. Some say they want the ProCharger over the Maggie for their V, but IMO if you are going to stay south of 500RWHP, either one gets it done.

V with a Maggie will not beat a C6Z, you are giving up too much weight and aerodynamics; gearing change and a 150-shot (not sure what you will do to keep the rear intact) will get you closer. You will crush a C5Z and a stock C6:lildevil:. You will not beat Heavy's C5Z with Maggie either, but its okay to lose to another Maggie vehicle:D.

My biggest fear is blowing out the rear. I only have 34,000 miles on my 04 which still has warranty for another year. (went into service in Jan 2005) I am still on the original rear and I have no whine or clunking at all.

That's kind of what I thought. I never launch my cars and I am very easy on the tranny. I owned both an STi and an Evo IX and I only launched those cars one time a piece. I found I could start better and faster by simply bring up the rev's at the same time slipping the clutch then full throttle once the clutch was engaged.

Absolutely agree, even with an overdriven maggie on your V. My numbers were south of Heavy's, to say nothing about the weight/aerodynamic considerations...

The stock C6, however, still makes me nervous. While I think I could take one (and I have an overdriven maggie), I don't think it would be by much. Car & Driver's comparo of a C6 Vette vs. the Shelby Mustang GT-500 resulted in the Vette being FASTER. Yes, this stunned the C&D folks, as they expected 500hp to do better, but damn...the article now serves as a constant reminder to always consider the benefits of weight...

And please dont bang your head in a wall...:p

A tuned V with intake & exhaust will run with a C6. Check out Stageup drag strip run or my track day following my buddy down the front stretch.

My C5 weighs 800 lbs less than my V so I would not discount C5Z as most are not stock. :)

Might not hold on on the top end but below 100 mph it is a driver's race.

Don't launch it like a 16 year old and you'll be fine. Give up the hole shot and reel them in.

It's a 4th gen ('93-96) LT1 Camaro Z28 (If my memory is right of what my dash looked like back in the day) with heads and spray.

The Camaro speedo is at ~120 mph when the V goes past on the last run.

The link says the V is blown but it sure doesn't sound like it has a Maggie on it to me - Where's the scream? Especially the last run when it goes by... :hmm: Procharger or ? :hmm:

Gotcha. :highfive:

Yeah, the camaro had little to no chance. LT1s are rather weak compared to the LS*s

(Didn't 4th generation go through '97?? :hmm::p)

Funny, I was thinking the same thing...

The stock LT1s in the 4th generation camaros aren't that strong, 285 (crank)hp if memory serves. Even with a 100-shot & heads, he's probably just a hair more than a (mostly) stock V.

I don't think he'd have any chance against a blown V (not that he did against the stock V, but that V had to work a little bit). A blown V would just walk him with considerable ease...

Just had to post on this thread, as I immediately thought of this post tonight...

Shortly after spanking a pathetic Nissan (from a group of 3 cars that were cruising together...), his friend driving a blue Subaru STI decided to play with me at a redlight. The guy was clearly arrogant (complete with him shaking his head...), which made me just lol at him...little did he know what lurked under my hood...:tisk:

He got the holeshot something fierce (probably had a good car/car and a half on me), but I didn't care...not in the slightest. He would need to be heavily modded to run with me and those odds...I'm willing to take, especially for some early 20-something guy...

Took off like a grandma, then matted the throttle. By the end of 2nd I was with him and 3rd he was dust...BADLY...3rd gear is just NASTY in a blown V (especially an over-boosted V... :))

Funny, I slowed down and gave him another chance from ~70 (which is just so bad of me---3rd gear is just nasty...), but, to my amazement (yeah...right), he didn't want to play anymore...

I wonder---does he know how to identify the sound of a maggie yet?

Just cracked me up...I wish I had a video, so Stealth would have more evidence... :highfive::thumbsup::)

He hit that third beep of the horn a little fast on the last run. I think thats the only reason he pulled away at first.
