I've got my boosted 408 nearing completion, originally planned to be dropped in the TA. But I've been kicking around the idea of dropping it in the TBSS. I know Magnachargers arent made for blistering power levels like a Procharger, but would it be capable of making in the high teens for boost and about 800-900hp?

You would have to wait for the new TVS1900 4 rotor group to debut (which will be within the next year for TBSS) for up to 20 lbs of boost. The others won't boost that high. PM Joe at LeftCoast for details.

The 122HH is good for about 750 at the crank with your stroker and the right cam. The new TVS will be out early next year so long as all the testing finishes up.

The New TVS will be able to support that power but they wont be releasing them till the first or second quarter of 2008. That's alot of pony's so everything will need to be built to support that. This gives you time to build everything else.

Why do prochargers make "blistering power"? Whats the difference?

I just talked to a guy that took a procharged TBSS to the track for the first time and ran 114 MPH with 8 pounds of boost.

Prochargers are centrifugal as opposed to Maggies which are roots. Procharger also allows the use of a more efficient intercooler and its design allows for more airflow

I know you can get a lot lower IAT with a intercooled procharger at 8lbs then a Maggie! That has to have a lot to do with it.
I bet he is not running pump gas!
Just a guess!


I bet its a D1sc not sure a P1sc can push 8lbs even with a baby pully!


Norcall That picture is way cool bro! Even better then the last!

There were lots of people on the GTO forums taking out their ProChargers and going with Maggies. They did it simply for a better power curve and easier daily driving characteristics.

:coolthumb: Now were talking. That's more of the MPH I was expecting out of a blown TBSS. Let's see some pics!

Lot of guys install Prochargers wrong and part throttle drivability suffers. What's wrong you say? How about blow through MAF setup with MAF before throttle body... make for fun part throttle tuning and the solution is so simple if you just don't do it that way.
