Magnuson Supercharger System – 1997 – 1998 Chevrolet Corvette C5 LS1 5.7L V8
Adding a Magnuson TVS2300 Supercharger System to your Corvette will unleash its true potential.
With this bolt on supercharger you can maximum performance while retaining factory-like reliability and drivability. Producing 6 pounds of boost, the Hybrid Roots Style Magnuson TVS2300 Supercharger delivers power gains of around 120 HP and 120 TQ to the rear wheels. As we know, while peak power numbers are nice, they don’t tell the whole story. “Under the curve” power is significantly improved delivering nearly instantaneous boost and torque on demand that really pins you back in your seat. Please note this particular application does not come with CARB EO emission certification and also requires an aftermarket hood which is not inlcuded.
Inside of the supercharger manifold, a large liquid-to-air intercooler keeps your Intake Air Temperatures in check and provides consistent and repeatable performance. Combine that with the front-mounted heat exchanger, electric water pump, and intercooler coolant reservoir and you have a supercharger system with IATs that are typically only 20-40 degrees (Fahrenheit) over the ambient temperature.
Maximizing your efficiency during cruising is the job of the supercharger’s integrated bypass valve. This vacuum operated system allows air to bypass the supercharger and the rotors to “free-spin” under light engine loads. During this situation the parasitic loss of the supercharger system is essentially negated taking less than one-third of a horsepower to turn the rotors. The bypass valve also allows your supercharged vehicle to maintain stock-like drivability and fuel economy- giving you power without compromise.
Down to the smallest detail, our Magnuson line of bolt-on supercharger systems are engineered as a complete package. The supercharger, supercharger intake manifold, inlet, pulley, fuel injectors, fuel rails, front & rear fuel crossovers, and intercooler come pre-assembled to make installation simple and easy while the accessory box is organized into individual sub-assemblies to help ensure that you don’t lose track of parts in the middle of your install. All of the hardware needed for a full and complete install is also included so you won’t be running to the local parts store in the middle of your installation. In addition, our full color, step-by-step Installation Manuals will walk you through the install process with exacting attention to detail.
Magnuson’s TVS2300 supercharger utilizes EATON’s latest 6th Generation supercharger rotor technology found in such industry leading performance vehicles as the Corvette ZR-1, the Cadillac CTS-V, and the Mustang GT500. These Twin Vortices Series Superchargers feature a pair of four-lobe, high-helix rotors with 160-degrees of overall twist that are housed in Magnuson’s patented high-flow housing. This highly efficient package requires less power to drive, delivers cooler discharge temperatures, and is much quieter than many of its competitors. These superchargers are all manufactured in our TS16949 certified facility – the highest ISO OEM quality certification standard in the market. It is also built to be nearly maintenance free so you won’t have to worry about anything once it is installed.
