You'll absolutely feel the difference with a Supercharger.
Lots of brands to chose from Magnuson, Edelbrock, Procharger .. and others.
I dont have one on mine yet.. still waiting for pricing to come down a bit.

If price is an issue, you can start with some other mods that will give you a perma grin too... Air intake (throttle response and HP), long tube headers (more torque and HP) the biggest bang probably comes from a programmer like Diablosport, hypertech, jet or superchips.

I've used the Hypertech, but now use a Diablosport for more tuning options.

I take it you've never been in a supercharged car.:facepalm:

is it worth it for that kind of $$$??? only YOU can answer that question because it's your money.

No, I have never had a car with a supercharger. I have the ARH long tube headers and roto-fab CAI. Just wanted to know if any, ie; the magna tv 2300 would give a noticeable boost per say.

thanks

Just ask my wife. Hit a passing zone in which I needed (no really!) to pass two cars separated by an 1/8 mile and the passing zone is only 1/2 mile. After reaching our lunch destination and were seated, out of the blue she blurts out, "Holy sh*t that car is fast!". :thumbsup: :thumbsup::werd:

supercharging is definately noticable. for the money though, magna charger is not the best way to go. dont know if your looking for a tuner kit or if you want a complete kit, but i have seen tuner kits( what im doing) for pro charger and vortech for around 5200-5400. magna chargers , ive seen around 6200. you get really good low end tq with the magna charger but not as great high end tq. with the pro charger and vortech, you get amazing pull at high rmp and not as much at a low rpm.

Maybe you have a hard time conceptually understanding what another 150-200 horsepower does. I will tell you this to help you understand, I was right next to a CTS-V, which pretty much comes with our engine and a supercharger from the factory. I told him I wanted to see what a supercharger would do for my car and when we got where there was no one around he made my car look like it was sitting still. Whether its worth the money or not is up to you, but the difference is night and day. You will feel every bit of it.

Go drive a Cobalt with the 2.2 (no offense, Lu) and then hop back in your Camaro -- that should help you understand a bit better.
No offense taken. I know it's not powerful or fast, lol.
But it does a **** good job of what it's designed to do..and gets insane gas mileage whilst doing so.

Though a closer comparison would probably be the V6 Camaro against the V8 Camaro. Around 120 or so HP difference.

As others say, it is night and day. during normal low-speed driving, not to noticeable, but just smash that throttle, and you will feel that kind of power.

I could see a huge difference, when i went from a stock 4th gen V6 camaro to a lightly modified supercharged pontiac grandprix, and that only came with a measly M60 blower back in the day before TVS technology.

I was at a meet two weekends ago and talked to a corvette guy that had the LS3 and the Elderbrock Supercharger and he absolutely loved it. He just would not stop talking about the power.
