Below are a few pics of the first production Magnacharger for the GTO. The intercooler resivior bottle can be seen mounted above the battery. Heat exchanger is mounted in front of the radiator. Unit is set up with just 6.5lbs of boost. This made 124 RWHP extra on the dyno through our side exhaust exhaust system. The stock exhaust robs about 20-25hp.

Driving with the unit is really the best of both worlds. While crusing at 80mph in 6th the blower is nearly undetecable. You'd have to turn off the radio and lean forward to hear it barely (and I mean barely) whine. Mash the go pedal and the boost is instant, car pulls very hard. It easily breaks the tires loose going into the first 4 gears and a power shift into 2nd is incredible.

I didn't get the chance to run it on track on Friday, but I'm probably taking it out on Wed. I did do some cruising last night and wouldn't you know it I pulled up next to the proud new owner of either a 03 or 04 Cobra. Car still had temp tags on it and it looked like he was giving his buddies a ride in his new Stang. One of the passengers said "Don't sweat it, it's just one of the new GTO's they aren't that fast" I guess I peeved him off when I replied, "I wouldn't do it Jr., you don't want to be embarrassed in front of your friends in your new ride." Needlees to say it was on, I wish I could have seen their faces as I easily pulled him by a few car lentghs. Stopping at the next light they asked what I had done to it and I replied, "Just a little exhaust work." :D

Oh, the fun is just beginning!!!

Do you have pics of the satin? Doesn't have to be installed. Just want to see what the difference in looks is.

Hmm...I wonder if this will fit on an LS2? A 550HP GTO would be killer.

Is that the stock strut tower brace? If so is it safe to say that the stock hood can be kept without mods?

We're doing the initial couple of installs for $550. You'd have to bring your Goat to Phoenix to have us install it. Otherwise Magnacharger can recommend someone in your area.

Would the 6.5 psi be bad for the rear end or engine? What I am wondering is could we bolt this on and be safe and not have to upgrade anything in else?
