Having that supercharger itch



Hello. I was wondering what would be needed to have a complete supercharging system installed on my gto. What would be needed? Maryland Speed Shop offers a supercharger packages. Right now I have 2006 M6 and the usual bolt-on's, headers and CAI. Would I need rear axle upgrades, trans upgrades etc to make it street user friendly.

All you really need is an upgraded clutch. That stock one wont last.

Well unless you really want to go nuts and replace a lot of stuff. Do a
Clutch and run it until you find your week link. Like anything it will all depend on how hard
You beat on it. In time you will need a driveshaft but that's with any gto auto or manual in time. Then you will find the next week link. It's a never ending cycle with a hot rod.

No if are running low boost. But to get the most benifit out of a
Supercharger. Then you need at least forged pistons rings gaped for the added heat. What happens most of the time on the stock motors once boost is added is you brake a ringland.
If you run low boost 6-8 lbs and add water meth kit it will help the heat and detonation.

I have the TVS1900, 1:1 rear pulleys, magnaflow 3inch cat back, LPE intake, walboro 255 fuel pump (added the magnuson boost a pump as well just to be safe), a smaller 3inch pulley (the supercharger comes with a 3.2inch), a custom tune and that's it. The rest of the motor is stock. It made 503 @8psi. I could throw headers on it and make another 40hp or so. I did upgrade the clutch to a McLeod RST just because I was worried about slippage but I ran the stock clutch for a while and it held up fine as long as I didn't beat on it a lot and gave it time to cool down between pulls.
If you want a supercharger, get the TVS1900 and stay with the stock pulleys (6psi), get a bigger fuel pump, and get it custom tuned to be safe. Don't beat on it and itll be fine. When you get the money, upgrade the clutch.

My supercharger setup was a bit more extreme; I just bought a CTS-V2 instead

Seriously though, you'll need a clutch, and probably some drivetrain components after a while, you might as well at least do a blower cam to get more power out of it, installing the supercharger kit puts you a good bit of the way there already.

Magnuson makes a TVS2300 for the GTO. No more 1900.

if your wiling to fab up a few brackets n things the universal e-force tvs 2300 works well.
I have had zero issues with the blower itself, but almost destroyed everything else on the car with the added power. Im constantly working on weak links the added power finds. Hopefully I have found about all of em.

at minimum you will need clutch if your m6 . if auto your on borrowed time with the 60e throw it away and go 4l80e when you burn up 3/4 (not if WHEN)

1pc Drive shaft for sure the stock 2pc will be trash quick.

Axles can prolly wait unless your launching hard on stickies.

good BRAKES! adding a lot of power and weight...

you will need to increase your tire budget for sure.

I do appreciate all the good info. I see Maryland Speed Shop has supercharges for sale. I'm not sure what the difference between the tvs1900 and tvs2300, other then price. Can someone sort of break it down.

The 1900 is a 1.9 blower, the 2300 is a 2.3 blower. 2300 has a Larger case and more possible boost with the 2.3. There may be injector differences, I don't remember.

Also I was wondering if I could use a Vararam CAI system to a tvs2300???? All the set up systems I've seen are using the standard aftermarket K&N CAI etc systems.

After digging further into this forum I did find a post indicating a Vararam CAI will not work with a Magnuson TVS2300 due to the front pulley hitting it. Idk I guess back to the drawing board.

Back to the drawing board on the Supercharger or the CAI? I would hope that your intake choice would not limit your choice in supercharger.

No, but I just had a Vararam CAI installed and would hate to have to get a new CAI system. I was hoping it would fit or at least be modified to fit a Magnuson CS. IDK..

Just the Maggie kit and nothing else is a very nice mod. Gives you lots of under the curve torque and its easy to install. If I got a second goat for a daily I would be real tempted to just Maggie it and that's it. Sure if you launch it from a dig every day your clutch and driveline are going to hate you....but are you really going to do that?

Trust me if you start in with the "while I'm in there" mentality it never ends. Not necessarily a bad thing....but its a slippery slope.

EDIT:
That CAI or a Maggie? Sell the CAI....no problem. Get another.

You're better off with the stock air box and a K&N drop-in. These cars love cold air.
