    Supercharger, or not?

    Im looking at some GTO's, and im stuck. Both are LS2 M6, but one comes with a LPE Supercharger, the other is stock. Since both are used, is it a bad idea to go for the Magnuson supercharged for a daily driver?

    Im torn up about this, its down to these 2...

    Anyone in RI, CT, or MA have an LS2 M6 GTO for sale??

    Supercharger

    A "Maggie" is the perfect choice for an LS2 GTO daily driver. I have one and simply love it. They're quiet/stealthy. Since it has a buillt in by-pass, if you're not getting on it, it will defer to your normal engine management and fuel burn operation. It runs immediately off your crank, so you get lots of torque and you'll add another 100+ HP/TQ. Now, what's the price difference from the stock unit offered? Mileage differences of the cars? How many miles on the blower itself? Who installed the s/c - a "Maggie" qualified dealer/tech or someone else? Did the owner get it under the 36K/36mo warranty plan? Has the owner changed to smaller pulleys? What else has the owner of the s/c'd unit done to the car to support the added blower? All questions you should ask and get comfortable answers to before you make a final buy decision.

    Well, I went for the stocker. Phantom black, black interior, 12K on it, and I managed to coerce the dealer into adding on a huge bumper to bumper warranty. I must say, this is by far the scariest car power-wise that Ive ever driven. I LOVE IT!!! Thanks for the help though, the warranty is what Im really stoked about.

    I'm most often at Otto's BBQ in the Fountains Shopping Center off 59S on Saturday evenings after 6 PM, weather permitting of course.
