Challengers getting the Supercharger!

Postby ChrisNCT » Fri May 10, 2013 11:49 am

Challengers getting the Supercharger!

I ordered it on Tuesday. Incoming is a Magnuson Hemi 5.7/6.1 Supercharger. Will give me 6lbs of boost with 20RWHP at each lb. So I am gaining another 120HP to the ground.

It's pretty easy to put in as they are designed for each type of car they go in.

Gonna be awesome!!!!! :twisted:

Good stuff, Chris! I have a ton of tools and a compressor here in my garage if you need to use any. :wink:

Wont be needing them, I got plenty of shop tools and equipment. You just wanna play with the supercharger!

I am sending Magnuson my vehicle data, exhaust system,throttle body, air intake system etc and they will send me a file to load into the car. That should hold me over till I hit a dyno next month.

New arrivals for the ride

Postby ChrisNCT » Wed May 15, 2013 5:58 pm

I came home to find my recent orders.

Petty SRT Front Strut Brace in the color Deep Water Blue Pearl

and SRT Functional Hood Scoops.

As soon as my Magnuson Supercharger shows up next week, I can then install the strut brace.


Installed within minutes.....

Get up to 350 mph and you'll benefit from ram air compression, too.

Real Nice Chris! That is going to be a monster! Hope I can check it out when it's done. This will cut some time off your commute to work too.

That's the company that made the supercharger for my Jetta. Although "Neuspeed" put there name on it. :roll:
Sent mine back Magnuson out in Kalifornia for a new rotor group and bearings. When I bought it (used) it had excessive play in the shaft. $950 bill. :wall:
It was good to go once I got it all together along with the rest of the mods I did to the car!
