Don't think theirs a 90mm tb that fits LS1/6 manifold. Most of the aftermarket ones are 80 something mil.

edit: unless the maggie can use a FAST tb or LS2 which I don't think its set up for.

I have an a/4 with the Magnuson s/c and I did not have to cut any of the hood. A small section of the underhood insulation was cut away to clear the front of the s/c , the tb and the pulley, and then some areas (three) of the inner panel of the stock hood got whacked by me where there was contact, which showed up after driving. Good template by making some hard pulls. This contact may be where there is a circular part of the inner panel that is about an inch below the outside sheet metal. No big deal on mine. Just used a ball pein hammer, some sand paper and some black paint. No dents or damage on the outside, no contact on the inside.

The m6 will hit on the brace around the circle in the center of the hood.I put duct tape on it and where the charger hit the tape while running I used a 5/16 drill to put hole in the brace where it hit.Looks neater than hitting with a hammer to dent it AND after driven for awhile the tape will wear in the exact spot you need to drill the hole.I will be trimming the hood insulation soon and reinstall same to reduce the underhood noise or echo that resonates.Other than that the fit is super and neat
