    • Magnuson gets 1152 rear wheel horsepower out of a Camaro SS LT1 with an Eaton TVS2650 blower

      Incredible numbers here. Are you wondering if a 2.65 liter blower is big enough? Well, it is more than big enough to top 1000 horsepower to the wheels. Magnuson was able to get 1152 out of a Camaro SS LT1 with the Eaton TVS2650.


      Magnuson is showing great results with this blower from Hellcat supercharger swaps to supercharging the LT1 and various other V8's.

      They claim it is much more efficient of a supercharger:

      • True reliable operating range to 20,000 RPM
      • 33% higher flow than TVS2300
      • 10% higher flow than a 2.9 screw
      • 14% higher adiabatic efficiency at 14k rpm and 2.0 pressure ratio compared to screw 2.9 at the same flow
      • 75F lower discharge temperature at 14k rpm and 2.0 pressure ratio compared to screw 2.9 at the same flow
      • 26 HP less input power required at 14k rpm and 2.0 pressure ration compared to screw 2.9 at the same flow

      Hard to argue with the result:


      This setup is still being tweaked as the 8-speed transmission needs to be tuned and they dialed the boost down quite a bit when they hit the track recently. Still, at Famoso in Southern California they were running mid 9's at over 150 miles per hour. They did not post the slips however.

      As for the other details the motor is built and has an LT4 fuel system along with 8 multiport 65 lb/hr additional injectors.

      Hopefully they get it dialed in at high boost and we see what it does on the strip.

        It says the motor is built with an lt4 fuel system and injectors.... lol maybe they should have used rods and pistons instead?

        The motor is built with an lt4 fuel system and injectors. It makes sense to me but I guess I'll edit to clarify.
