Our friends over at Magnuson really outdid themselves with their display at the 2017 SEMA show, and we’re thrilled that we got a firsthand look. As these innovators of superchargers continue to impress, their products account for some of the best blowers ever made.
Perhaps the most popular Magnuson units amongst Mustang and Ford owners are the generic head units that allow for a completely custom blower setup, with the benefit of being able to use these innovative head units developed by Magnuson. These can be used as an OE upgrade for previously equipped cars, or you can choose from several different units to build a kit on your naturally aspirated car.
Based on the MP112 unit from the Ford Mustang Cobra, the Magnuson MP112 is a hybrid/roots system supercharger that does great on many other originally supercharged or naturally aspirated builds. It will increase engine horsepower and torque, while maintaining factory manners and fuel economy. S Port technology and Integral bypasses are included in the 4th-gen and 5th-gen Magnachargers for unmatched performance. This bare unit is made for 4.0 to 6.0 liter fuel injected engines.
Originally found on the Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe, the MP90 was made for midsized fuel injected engines that range from 3.0 to 5.7 liters, one of those popular uses being the Mustang GT. This is a hybrid/roots system that displaces 90 cubic inches of air per revolution. The Magnuson MP90 delivers more than 90% more efficiency thanks to years of development.
Made for mid-size to large engines, the TVS2300 is similar to the blower used on the 2013 Mustang Shelby GT500, and it’s no wonder Ford picked this head unit. It displaces 2300 cubic centimeters of air each revolution. Magnuson has worked over this unit to increase performance, but also reduce supercharger noise and vibration.
Each of these head units come with a 12-month/12,000 manufacturer’s warranty from Magnuson.
