Magnacharger on 4th gen info please...thanks!
This is a discussion on Magnacharger on 4th gen info please...thanks! within the Forced Induction forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; Video doesn't really give it any justice at all, but non-the-less. I'll have some better video come spring time when ...

With a roots style you'd be building boost much sooner/lower RPM's. You may want to wait on getting a confirmation on what I said about being able to drive a root's style blower on stock injectors before a tune without damaging anything.

Thanks Again 35th ! , Ive been on tech too asking some questions and it seems that it might be ok to drive as long as I don`t get on it WOT with stock injectors . I may end up just taking everthing to the shop to get the work done . . .I really don`t want to so I can save some $$$ but better to do it right and safer I guess . BTW car sounds brutally EVIL !! thanks for the good info .

Just looked the kit up, it does come with new injectors and a micro flash tool to reflash your computer once installed, also included is new fuel rails with factory push lock conncetions. So as fars as having to run your stock injectors you shouldnt have to worry about that. As for the tune provided i would only use that as a means to get you to the shop that will be tuning it.
as far as the appeal goes over the center at least for me, like 35th said with a roots its pretty much boost on demand, a center builds into it. Now, some shops have been doing some pretty neat stuff with smaller pullies and wastegates on centers to bring the boost in quicker and then bleed off the excess once it is reached. So as far as that goes in the future that point could be mute. Guess we will see if reliability comes into play on that one or not. second, and i know some will prolly find this stupid but i like the look over the center once setup. Its a much cleaner look than with a center setup. I personally don't like the piping that has to be run to go from intake system to the center to the motor. Third, due to the work that has to go into it not alot of people out there run them on our cars so in running one you have an even more personalized ride on your hands. Like i said though these are my reasons.

+1 to the above, ive been racking this one around for a minute since contemplating this setup.

I have 4.11 gears and my car dead-hooks in 1st from a slow roll. That was with brand new drag radials and a built suspension that has been tweaked. Once the tires got 6K miles on them and the temperature dropped outside a little, I had traction issues until I hit about 60MPH. I'll be upgrading to Mickey Thompson's come spring and hoping that solves the traction issue I've been having as of lately.
I'm not opposed to a roots style blower at all. In fact, I would encourage anyone who wants this set-up to go for it. I personally wouldn't ever hack my car up to get one to fit though. There is only 1 pipe that is visually seen on the centrifugal set-up, and that's the pipe running from the discharge side of the intercooler to the intake. IMO, it looks pretty clean. Everything else is hidden down low and cannot be seen unless you crawl under the car. Of course the roots style blower looks badass. How often do you have your hood open though? Unless you're doing car shows, I wouldn't let looks alone make a decision.
I also like getting the same or better gas mileage while I drive around town and still having 500+rwhp at my disposal. Not sure what gas mileage is like on a roots style set-up. Anyone know? Gas isn't exactly cheap these days. Of course, for some gas mileage isn't a concern, but I know when I get on my car I can EASILY go through a tank of gas in a day so it's nice to be able to conserve some if I choose to.

You do have a damn clean setup in that maro 35th. Not sure on the gas mileage either. GMHTP did an article "Going AWOL" on a T/A with a maggie in it where i think it mentions his MPGs. As far as cutting up the car goes as long as your not hacking away blindly I dont see an issue with it, like tub/minitubs. Id rather install them then hammer out the room with a BFH to get bigger tires to fit.
As far as traction goes im thinking minitubbed 335s with a narrowed axle or 12.5inw DRs LS1 camino ran 335s on the nymph before it passed and has just minitubbed the replacemetn body, says he has plenty of room now. So who knows maybe thatll be the answer. 35th let me know how switching over to the mickey's works for you. I'd love to hear how they fair on an s/c car.

They'll probably work great for him, but only last one, two years tops.

You definitely need a drag radial with that kind of power and a built suspension. He had the suspension, just not the drag radials. Downfall of running drag radials is they only last 1-2 years depending on how much you drive the car.

Or in my case, this is my 5th season coming up.
But ideally, traction wise they are done after two years. There's tread, but no traction.

well guess that settles that question then, DRs it is.2002 Trans Am WS.6 A-4:
