I know, stupid newbie...

But I've honestly been trying to figure out what a "maggie" is and I can't figure it out. Help a brother out here! ;)

As long as you don't use Maggie, Blown and Bart in the same sentence, you should be OK :eek:



Seriously, F/I (aka Maggie) seems to be what the General recommends - just check out the "other" V's :D

I figured out what Maggie was by lurking here for a while... what I'm still not clear on is two things:

What do they cost?

and

Is this something I can do myself, or with a friend, assuming I'm resonably knowledgeable with automobiles and garage tools?

What do they cost?

About $6k uninstalled.

If you are a pretty good gearhead you and a friend can do it.

Are they worth it?

Every penney.:thumbsup:

100% agree.

The difference is not only noticable, it's just damn fun. The motor already puts out an impressive amount of torque to begin with, but under ~5.5-6 lbs of boost, it just hits another level of enjoyment.

If you haven't, at least, got a ride in one, do so as soon as you can. Heavymetals used to give people free rides (excellent upgrades in his car--damn bastige!), but now there is a rumor that he charges for gas though... :)

WARNING--if you drive/ride in a maggie powered V, you run the risk of getting "hooked" and won't even want to drive your car without it. :yup:

Thanks for the compliment LUNA(TIC).:lildevil:

I enjoy showing off my toy, and it is even more fun when they have to go back and drive theirs :thepan: :thepan: after they drive mine (cruel ain't I!):thumbsup:

The car is it's own best advertising.:highfive:

I should be in sales. I think I am.:histeric:

At least Brian thinks so!

A maggie is the only way to go unless you want to tear apart a motor.:stirpot:

So you thought it ran and sounded pretty good with the BB headers mated to the CORSA?

What times have you seen in the 1/4 with a maggie & Stealth tuned V in the 1/4? Cracking 11s?
