Well after a long trip to PA I finally got the Maggie home. Me and my brother left Scranton PA at around 9:15pm Tuesday night. After along road trip with rain all the way till Chicago. We pulled in to Minneapolis, MN about 4pm yesterday. It's good to be home and have the new maggie parked out front. The maggie rocks anybody that gets a chance to drive one you will love it.:lildevil: Thought I would share some pics.

Yeah I thought the hose routing was messy as well. I am going to work on that and put some frc's on it. Gunna get it dyno at the end of the month or early May.

I just pulled the trigger on a maggie w/meth spray. I feel like so good. Can't wait to get her on.

First thing is to take the fuel crossover and run it under the front of the maggie.
Wow looks amazing:drool:

For those runnin maggie, would going to a 90mm TB be helpful? The one on mine is stock, I was wondering if I could put a 90mm on and get some more HP?

StealthV (Rick) told me personally that I could get more out of my car with a 90 mm TB if that's any help. I haven't done it, because I'd need to do some other upgrades to get it to work.

No, if you take some time it can be done neatly.

I tried that on mine and never could find a good combination of fit and finish I wanted with the line the magnacharger gives you. I think I will pick up some -6 braided hose and som 45* hose ends with straight nipples coming out of the rail. I just dont like the 90's that come with it from magnacharger.

Ok - help me. How hard is it to re-route the fuel line underneath instead of over the top? Cowan said when he turned the connection to the fuel rail to move the line out of the way it started leaking. If you have to turn one side counter-clockwise to rotate the line down, how do you keep the connection tight?

I have operation clean up the engine bay starting in a few weeks and that is one of my goals.
