    You'll need to notch the cowl and possibly modify the k member. Quick search dug this up 98-02 LS1 Camaro/Firebird F-Body MP112 Magnacharger Kit

    thats what i like most about the magnacharger setup. It already comes with everything you need were as with the procharger setup you still have to buy a balancer, fuel pump, injectors. Yea the procharger makes more power, but i like the numbers you get from the maggie in the lower rpm range. Torque wins races not Horsepower.

    there is a thread around here on a guy that dropped one in his camaro, real good thread on issues that he ran into along the way with a ton of pics. When i get a minute out here ill try and see if I can dig it up for you. I am looking to go this route hopefully when i finally decide on a motor to drop in my T/A.

    Yes you are prolly going to want to upgrade your other drivelive componets, your suspension setup looks good but youll want to look into a beffier rear (autos 12bolt,manuals 9 inch) and upgrading your tranny as well (torque converter, cooler, shiftkit, or complete build) . Also depending on your desired boost it can range from a good idea to a necessity to run forged internals on the motor.

    Thanks MudstainKILLA , The car will probobly remain stock other wise for power I`m looking at a Maggie MP122 @ 8PSI kitt .I`m not planning to go crazy with the car its just a street car I don`t do burnouts or anything so 450+ RWHP is good enough for me LOL ! I was either looking at beafing up my driveline components first before I add a S/C or after ?? Not sure what Im` going to do next . Also if I install the S/C myself can I drive it to a shop to have it tuned or is it best to have the shop install & tune it all at once ?? If I can drive it to a shop it`s an hour & a half away .

    Thanks Again .

    As long as you leave the stock injectors in the car and don't go WOT you are fine to drive it. When I say don't go WOT, I mean just that. Not even once.

    If you put the new injectors in, you need it tuned before you drive it.

    remember with the maggie's you are going to have to cut the cowl in order for it to clear the S/C. With everything else staying stock and your just shooting for around 450, may want to look into a centifugal design. Could be cheaper for you to completly set up. But i havent priced out the difference in setups. Might be worth looking into ulness your like me and set on a roots style

    The K-Member would need to be modified as well (lowered), and even then it might not fit under your hood.

    I really like the idea of the maggie, but a procharger is probably the better choice on these 4th gens. You can make just as much power with one.

    I love the look of a maggie under the hood !! And the sound they make is just EVIL to boot !! Just look at the Holden HVS cars & the Vauxhull VXR 500 ( S/C GTO ) are just insane !!

    I have a Procharger and I personally LOVE how mine sounds. People hear me coming from probably a 1/4 mile away and that's no exaggeration. It's not evil, it's down right nasty. The whine is overpowering.

    Exactly. Clint195 had one on his z06 and it sounded great. So I am just not sure what the appeal is when our cars require so much modification.
