Default No Magnacharger info on here

How come there is no Magnacharger talk on here. My local Mustang Super Store ( Nelson Performance ) says this is a great unit that he toons in at 8 lbs and the car will have no problems hitting the 11 mark with room for more boost. This is without an intercooler. Stock motor.

They are newer, and many do not like the extra belt at the back end of the unit.
Liverois uses them for one of their packaged deals. I don't think there is anything really wrong with the unit, many just opt to spend more on a better, more proven system.

hey eddie, there was one member who
bolted it on and shortly thereafter, his
engine blew. i'm not saying it was because
of the s/c tho...

there are also 2-3 who have installed it and
have had good luck with it....

It's the same reason you don't see tons of roush blower threads. It's just not a good investment weighed against the other options out there...

Hey there,

We have a MagnaCharger installed on both of our exhibition cars (picture of one of them below). Put down 429 RWHP and 402 RWTQ on our DynoJet. Shop guys said there is more in it - they just wanted to stay conservitive.
