While we regularly hold training sessions with our vendors to keep up with their latest product lines and to brush up on their existing product lines, it’s not every day our vendors show up with a red hot Chevy Camaro as their training material. Recently, Magnuson superchargers did just that to introduce us to their new Heartbeat Supercharger.
More Efficiency, More Power
To start out the training, our sales rep reviewed the details of the new Heartbeat supercharger system with us. One key improvement over their previous systems and their competitors’ systems is an improved intercooling system. By utilizing Formula 1 and NASCAR heat exchanger technology to make their cooling system more efficient, they were able to avoid heat soak, bring down the IATs which provides more consistent performance from the new Heartbeat line of superchargers. Here are a few other benefits of this system:
- Includes a cast aluminum intake manifold
- Fuel system comes with factory push-lock connectors for an easier installation
- Kit includes twin dual-pass charge air coolers, coolant circulation pump, heat exchanger and all necessary installation hardware
With all of these upgrades, you’re probably wondering, as we were, “How much power does this system actually make?” Looking at the Magnuson Heartbeat supercharger for 2008-2013 Chevrolet Corvette, you can expect over 900 HP at 10-11 psi with this system. This is more than 25 HP than their previous system and 46 HP more than their competitors’ systems were able to produce in independent testing.
Seeing the Heartbeat Supercharger in Action
After hearing all of this, we were excited to see the Heartbeat supercharger in action. That’s when we were able to get a sneak peak of one of their systems that will be available soon – the Magnuson Heartbeat Supercharger for the Chevy Camaro! This particular system was installed on a new 2014 Chevy Camaro SS 1LE. We couldn’t get specifics, but it is rumored that this kit has been tested to produce 500+ hp to the wheels!
