    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:rules:). 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.:great:

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

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

    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 :)

    I hear ya on that! Water air is my personal fav. A lot of people preach meth, which I think is a great adder, but by no means a substitute for an intercooler! Would hate to be at WOT with an empty bottle of meth on my hands :grrrrrr:

    We considered running it on the Tahoe for the track, but she has yet to be run there, and is soon to be demodded. Justin is in the designing phase for his meth kit on his truck.
