Magnuson Camaro Supercharger
Like the iconic '69 ZL1 Camaro, the new Magna Charger ZLs™ equipped 2010 Camaro features an all-aluminum 500hp engine wrapped in crisp Gen 1-inspired sheet metal. However, that's where the similarities end. Chevrolet sold just 69 of the highly coveted ZL1s and virtually none of them ever saw the street. By contrast, almost anyone can build a Magna Charger ZLs. It's as easy as bolting on a new Magna Charger MP 2300 TVS supercharger system. While the original ZL1 was reported to have more than 500hp and 450ft.lbs. of torque pushing the car to low 13s @ 110mph, the ZLs is even more powerful, and capable of 12.5s @ 115 mph. What's really nice is that you can drive the Magna Charger ZLs every day without a penalty in fuel mileage or low-speed driveability. Where the original ZL1 was a cantankerous 8mpg anachronism, the ZLs is smooth, quiet and clean - equally ready to deliver top EPA mileage figures or smoke the tires in any gear - your choice!
Magna Charger's new MP 2300 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. The Magna Charger also interfaces seamlessly with the GM Active Fuel Management system (some models) that cuts the engine to four cylinders at light throttle.
The Magna Charger ZLs system comes complete with a new, patented high-velocity aluminum intake manifold, integral water-to-air intercooler, and all necessary brackets, connectors, hardware and any needed specialized tools. The supercharger has a self-contained lubrication system that is maintenance-free. Calibration is included with a handheld computer programmer that re-programs the factory ECU and stores the original calibration for possible future use. A full instruction manual with color photos makes the step-by-step installation process easy to follow.
All Magna Charger supercharger systems carry a Standard 3-Year Limited warranty on the supercharger system, and Magna Charger also offers an optional 36,000-mile/3 Year Powertrain Warranty.
