new G8 performance sedan has all the right stuff – style, performance
and a reasonable $30,000 price tag. It’s pretty quick too, running 13.7s
at 104mph off the showroom floor. However, the potential for real Super Car
performance is as easy as bolting on a new Magna Charger TVS2300 supercharger
for a whopping 135hp increase in rear wheel horsepower, lowering quarter-mile
times to 12.5 at 112mph.
Charger’s new TVS2300 supercharger technology is the same used for the
new LS9 Corvette. The four-lobe rotor design features a high-twist 160º
helix that has improved efficiency (less power to drive), cooler discharge temperatures
and is much quieter. Additional efficiency is the result of the unique bypass
valve that reduces parasitic losses during normal driving. The Magna Charger
also interfaces seamlessly with the GM Active Fuel Management system that cuts
the engine to four cylinders at light throttle.
Magna Charger G8 system comes complete with a new aluminum intake manifold,
integral water-to-air intercooler, and all necessary brackets, connectors, hardware
and any needed specialized tools. The supercharger has a self-contained lubrication
system that is maintenance-free. A full instruction manual with color photos
makes the step-by-step installation process easy to follow.

Best of all, it costs less than 1/3 of a horse at 60 mph. Now that’s real
