Here is the link and picture of the test charger already working.

Just from another stand point,....I think it's awesome magnacharger found a way to use a strut tower brace, even with the roots blower. Something not easy to do. Sweet

I was reading that you may need an aftermarket hood (with the C5/C6 kits, you do) -- so we'll see once the final version is out

I'd hate to have to switch hoods..I mean its not like we'd save weight by doing that, so its just an expense with no real benefits

I called them and spoke to one of the techs. He said the working versions are using the stock hood and so will the final version. You will only need to install do a program and enjoy another 100 or so hp.

Awesome, that is great news. Do they have a rough price range yet?

Not on this car. I did purchase one from them for my Hummer H2 and that ran just over 6000.00

You can use the stock hood.

Satin is $6000
Polished is $7000

Well I did it. I put the Magna Charger on the V! The guys at East Coast Supercharging in Jackson, NJ did one heck of a job. I have to take pics for you all and I do have the dyno as well!!! Engine hp is 498 and rear wheel is 397. It is so smooth you almost don't know you are doing 130 in 4th gear. I was next to an 04' Vet and completely blew his doors off. I think he went back to the dealer to see what was wrong with his car! If you have the cash just do it... I just drove the car to my new home in Houston, Tx and after 1800 miles at an avg of 74.8 mph it was awesome....I have as much power in 6th as I did in 5th....Best part no more 1>4 YES!

Pics coming soon...
