The Magnuson Model TVS2300 6th Generation is a State of the Art supercharger. It was designed as a compact, flexible supercharger for increased power with original equipment quietness and reliability without adversely affecting fuel economy. The TVS2300 6th Generation has proven itself in a number of original equipment and aftermarket applications on a variety of engine sizes. This version has taken this versatility to the next level with new 4-lobe, high helix rotor design and a built in bypass for unparalleled performance.
Power. The Magna Charger system, with its Roots design, provides substantial power increase: 150 bhp with stock LS3. High manifold pressure produced at low engine RPM provides significantly more low end and mid-range torque compared to centrifugal superchargers. Magnuson's unique intercooler design, built into the intake manifold base (patent pending), lowers charge air temperature up to 100F to increase power.
Reliability. Internal Magna Charger components are manufactured by Eaton, the world's leading OEM supercharger supplier, and ensure bulletproof reliability. Our testing confirms that this is the only supercharger system capable of 100,000 mile durability.
Drivability. Expert engine management calibration provides perfect street manners, eliminating engine-damaging detonation and maintaining excellent fuel economy and emission compliance. Fuel Economy. During low-load cruising conditions, the supercharger's internal bypass allows the rotors to spin freely, reducing parasitic drag to less than one-third of one horsepower. Fuel mileage is normally within 1/2 to 1 mpg less than stock.
Emissions Compliance. Executive Order exemptions (E.O. D-488-6, D-488-12, D-488-14) have been issued by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for 1997 to 2009 Corvette applications, making most systems 50-state "street-legal".
Magna Charger's new TVS2300 supercharger technology is the same used for the new ZR1 Corvette. The four-lobe rotor features a high-twist 160? 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 drag during normal driving.
