To all those running superchargers:

Are you running stock bottom ends? If not, what?

Stock heads? If not, what?

What size injectors are you using?

Fuel pump upgrade?

Did you do the install yourself?

Thanks for taking the time to answer!

1. Stock bottom end.

2. Replaced valves (mod hell long story) and installed dual springs w/ti retainers (did this after maggie installed about a year) and Comp Cams #1500 rolling rocker system.

3. Injectors come with maggie kit.

4. Fuel pump booster comes with maggie kit.

Installed myself (friend helped position maggie) and a bottle of Aleve (does not come with kit).

Took a weekend.

WHOO HOO!

Stock bottom end

Stock heads

Injectors and fuel pump came with the maggie

Paid for the install by my local dealer, as I want to build as much goodwill as I can.

5. Yes.

crank assembly supposedly good for 550 hp
maggie with limited boost will keep you under that

if you install yourself, get a second set of hands to set the s/c on the engine
fairly easy install and a lot of fun (during and after)

Stock everything except plugs.

Everything else is in the Maggie kit.

Most here are running the 2.6 or 2.8 pulley (jackshaft) on the Maggie--no problems with that level of boost. Possibly even fewer worries with meth/alky injection

If you're looking at the procharger like RAD's car, new internals are a good idea. May have to carefully examine fuel delivery in this type of setup too.

Your only other worry should be the rear end, and the tires you'll go through.
