Thread: Supercharger

  1. #1

    Default Supercharger

    I need help finding a rebuilt supercharger for my 2001 Silverado 1500 that has a 5.3L Vortec.
    Please help me out and don't suggest a Nitrous system.

    Search your local performance shops. Ebay is your other choice. I'd rather deal in person but ebay seems to be king. Also, you could check some of the performance forums.

    If you are looking for a used system, I would go check out a few performance forum classifieds (performancetrucks.net, ****************). I just sold our two Magnacharger Radix systems, but they were snagged up fast!

    That being said, we are very happy with Magnachargers and will be putting TVSs on our vehicles now. Magnacharger makes complete kits with an intercooler (very important). We are also Authorized Magnacharger sellers, so if you are looking for a new kit, feel free to hit me up for a price on a system.

    Depending on what your end goal is would depend on which supercharger style would be best. Both common used have their benifits.

    Are you talking about centrifugal vs roots?

    Yeah. I'm trying to be very political and not start a typical pt.net thread where everyone bashes the other types, lol.

    Got it

    With either type, I would still recommend an intercooler!

    I could not agree more!!!!!!! That's how I nuked my last engine, the intercooler was too small an my AIT shot through the roof. A nice water-air on my 408 now
