Hi all...

After a few months of lurking and scheming I've decided to go ahead and upgrade the V with a Corsa exhaust and a Magnacharger.

My Maggie was going to ship out this Friday. Today I got a call from the installer - Magnusson told them all SSR, GTO, and CTS-V shipments are being pulled because they have had a problem with a recent run of defective jackshafts.

I've been told that it will be at least six weeks before they are available again.

Anyone else know anything about this?

Six weeks... hmm, now that I have time maybe a new cam is in order.

EDITED NOTE: I got the impression from my installer that this is only related to the carbon fiber + steel jackshafts, and only a recent production run of them.

Mine is about 4-5 months old and is carbon fiber with the metal ends - not a single problem so far.

Maybe it was a bad batch and not a design problem (I hope).

Mine is carbon fiber with metal ends too. I've had mine on since August of 05. I probably have 7k miles on it. No issues with it.

Because I heard they were warping.

i dont think if you had a maggie for over a few months yours will have any problems... its probably just a recent batch of bad materials used, tolerance specs not meet, etc...

happens all the time.

I have a brand-new Maggie in the boxes (3). E-mail me at flyboy.1@att.net with a fair offer and it's yours.
