Magnuson Heartbeat Supercharger
Offering the best bang for your boosted buck, Magnuson Products new Heartbeat supercharger range raises forced induction to a new level of performance with reduced intake temperatures, enhanced airflow and superior housing efficiencies.
Unrivalled efficiency equals unrivalled performance in a combination that not only packs a powerful punch, it also stuns the senses with the most aesthetically pleasing, best packaged, best fitting supercharger available.
A design principle unhindered by marketing expectations provided Magnuson' design team with the knowledge that they could, with no restraint, develop the best engineered, most technologically advanced supercharger housing, intake manifold and drive system ever devised by the automotive aftermarket.
Stage two in the development cycle involved Magnuson Superchargers Australia (MSA) designing and developing a fitting kit of unparalleled quality for the V8 VE and VF Holden and HSV range. Significant in-field testing with stock L98, camshaft equipped LS3 and heavily modified E85 fuel fed LS3 engines ensued, resulting in a product capable of delivering astonishing performance in all weather conditions from minus zero at the top of Tasmania' Mount Wellington to the sweltering conditions experienced in Darwin.
Facilitating in-field testing, MSA worked closely with Australian suppliers to create a comprehensive kit consisting of only the best available parts. An example of this collaboration had MSA working closely with Queensland based PWR Performance Products intent on ensuring the lowest possible intake temperature of any currently available positive displacement supercharger. PWR exceeded expectations via proven technologies as used to achieve top-of-the-podium results in Formula 1, NASCAR, DTM, Indy Car and V8 Supercar.
The program included the development of dual-pass Charge-Air Coolers and complementary front-mount Low Temperature Radiators; a combination that has subsequently proven to offer the lowest intake temperatures of any comparable positive displacement supercharger available anywhere in the world.
Exhaustive component testing continued with a vast array of fitting kit parts; MSA and VCM Performance working together on a new Heartbeat-specific Over-The-Radiator Cold-Air-Intake manufactured to the same exacting standards and performance as all previous VCM OTR intakes. Specific length high quality drive belts, over and under-driven pulleys, and matched injectors that go a long way to ensuring smooth running and efficient fuel consumption, and importantly, articulate install instructions for efficient and effective fitment.
