Silver on Black TVS2300 supercharged FPR 6 speed 4:10 #23387
I put a Magnuson TVS 2300 supercharger on mine 3 years ago. Supercharger and tune were supplied by Joe Delano at Left Coast 32. I did all the installation myself, and only ran into a couple of challenging times. I upgraded the throttle body at the same time.
The difference in performance was substantial, considering no exhaust upgrades were done. I broke the motor last fall, nothing to do with the supercharger, so had the motor rebuilt this winter. Everything except the block and crank was upgraded, including an LS9 cam from a supercharged ZR1.
Reinstalling it now but still resisted the temptation to add headers. I've got a great exhaust system, and adding headers would have meant a lot of rebuilding, and tossing much of the exhaust system. Also have seen a lot of follow up issues with headers, including burning wiring and power steering hoses. I'll live with whatever performance is lost on the exhaust side.
Talk to Joe at LC32. He is now supplying supercharger packages with the TVS 1900. It is smaller than the 2300, eliminating the need to pound back the firewall to clear the rear pulleys. Joe is great to work with, and has steered me through any installation difficulties.
Because of distances, I purchased a HP Scanner software package so Joe could remote tune my truck with me supplying scans, and Joe returning tunes by email. If I can do it, it can be done. If you're not comfortable doing the installation and tuning, find a hot rod shop that will work with you. If you're within range of southern California, LC32 is the place to go to. In Arizona, Mike in AZ is the man to talk to regarding an installation.
Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all
