Anyone know what the highest RPM the Magnacharger can safely attain?
well i dont know TONS about cams and power addders. but from reading CMNTs posts, if you plan to do the magnacharger and a Head/cam, then you might wanna consider going with a head/cam combo that is "designed" for a supercharger set up. just my 2 cents, but im CMNT will chime in and give more details.no coness said:My only thinking was that what if I wanted to do a LS6 conversion and add the Magnuson to that. The revvs would increase, and I was just wondering if there were actually different versions of the blower to compensate, or if they were just built to handle it.
I know it probably sounds like a stupid question, but it is usually the stupid question that doesn't get asked that gets my arse in trouble.
Even that's a short term peak. Long term rpm is lower. This is not a blower for hammerasses. Overspinning an Eaton will cause the efficiency to drop, which creates much more heat, which expands the impellers, rapidly accelerating wear. You should see some of the pix of abused Eatons. Much thought and calculation goes into matching up the blowers efficiency range with engine rpm, and there are definitely reasons they void the warranty with a smaller pulley. For all-out max boost, get a Procharger or Vortech setup. I personally don't want any more boost than than the stock Maggie delivers withoug going inside the motor, dropping CR, and beefing things up. It's well matched to the LS1 and delivers smooth, effortless power across the entire useful RPM range of the engine.BlownChevy said:18K would be the max you would want to spin that blower.
