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.

Hey Wes,
I met you and Dan at the EJS Vendor show. I also live in Ventura. Would love for you guys to get something going for the 2011 like a piggy back (seems to be the only option). Either way, would love to stop by the shop and see whats new!

You just reminded me that I haven't responded to your email yet...my bad! Thank you for the offer on the 2011, but we don't do piggy back systems. I think if you hold out for a couple of months things will break free in the Chrysler calibration and we can do a kit on your Jeep the right way.

I'm typing you a response to your email now, for your other question.

Is it a roots blower or a twin screw compressor?

That's beautiful. Can't wait to see a dyno & hear how it sounds. Love me some whine!

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

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.

Interested. I'll be watching this. I'd love to have a 4Bt or an LS, but my pockets are dry after my latest upgrades.

The fit up will. We are working on the PCM code, but really Chrysler just needs to open it up for us to tune. So, the answer for now is - it fits, but with no tune.
