I got my Maggie replacement blower and B&B headers installed this past weekend by More Performance.

First a thanks to Magnacharger for providing an entire new unit rather than just replacing the blower drive shaft and bearing. As "Wildwhl" has noted before, the only noticable change is the tube covering the shaft has been removed. Well that and now I don't have the buzzing sound from the blower at 3000rpm's.

The More guys replaced the blower on a weekend, and I do appreciate that! They'd probably rather be fishing.

Anyway, one thing was unanimous. The B&B headers with "X" pipe sounds better than the Corsa according to four individuals who witnessed the test runs after the install. This "V" rocks.

The butt-o-meter and dyno results tells me this thing hauls ass...and it is good.

Dynojet results:
Ambient temp = 87 deg (hot!!!)
Humidity = 33%
STD = 1
LS6 thoroughly heat soaked and 5th run = 466 rwhp

Butt-o-meter Results:
NA due to busted O ring:lildevil:

Me too, thanks to Brian & crew for both new blower AND labor.
