Wes at Magnuson Superchargers has been busy...

Magnuson Superchargers will be introducing our newest supercharger at the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab this April. Stop by and see what these molds have created...

Wes Capel, the lead Design Engineer and Dan Bronsten, our Engineering Manager will be on hand to show off our newest addition to the MagnaCharger line of superchargers.

It's for the 3.8L. We are looking strongly at the 3.6, but we currently have no calibration capabilities.

I was asked a couple of questions about the system, in a PM, that I thought everyone might like to know the answers to...

What supercharger does the system use?
We are using the TVS1320 rotating group. This is the same rotating group used in the Audi/VW/Porsche V6 supercharger applications.

Does the system require any hood modifications?
Nope, we have located everything under the hood...we've even given a 3/4" clearance all the way around the system.

Hitmoney: Definitely stop by, check the system out and we'll answer any questions you may have.

Is it a roots blower or a twin screw compressor?

Price and Dyno

Wes is working overtime to get this system ready for Moab. Once he has the BOM ready, we will be coming up with our pricing. As for the dyno, I expect good things from this system. We will post as soon as we can.

This is the technology we are using. The Roots-Hybrid is a very efficient rotor group that is insanely quiet.

Will this system need a new fuel pump, come with a canned tune or a tuner, and/or be intercooled?

Looks like there is a water to air heat exchanger in the one pic.

Yes, the system will have an intercooler. It does add to the cost, but it is really the only way to go. At this point we believe the factory fuel pump will be just fine. Once we complete the final dyno runs we will know for sure. As for the tune, in order to receive an EO# and be street legal, we will have a factory tune available. Commonly, we provide a tuner kit as well, without the EO#. With most Wranglers being modified, I think the tuner kit will be the better seller.
