2014 Chevy Silverado - Magnuson Supercharger - Massive Momentum

Taking the 2014 Silverado to Warp Speed With a Magnuson Supercharger

Dan WardJan 27, 2014
In a recent interview with Jordan Lee, Chief Engineer and Program Manager for GM Small-Block Engines, he told us his team "created an engine that delivers exceptional power and torque," and he later smiled calling the new EcoTec 5.3L (L83 engine code) a "hot rod." He's rightfully proud of his engineering team's Gen V small-block V-8, as it truly is a technological achievement in the small-block's 58-year history. Ask any enthusiast, however, if an engine has too much power, and you're likely to get a scrunched up nose and a shake of the head. Is there such a thing as too much power? We think not, which is exactly why we jumped at the opportunity to add more horsepower and torque to a new 2014 Silverado.
"More" is a relative term, but we're not talking about a few or even a baker's dozen. With a new Magnuson MP1900 TVS installed on the EcoTec3 5.3L, we're getting a serious increase in power—as in more than 100 rwhp. MagnaCharger uses Eaton's latest sixth-generation rotor technology with a pair of four lobes and high-helix rotors to produce a highly efficient housing, which delivers instant boost and the low-end grunt that truck owners demand. With the included heat exchanger and built-in intercooler, the intake air temps are considerably cooler than a traditional supercharger and contribute to the high-power output and long-lasting dependability. Everything required to bolt the supercharger atop of the Chevy's new engine was included, right down to the last zip tie. Check out the install, and if you want your new GM truck to turn into a rocket ship every time the accelerator is applied, give Magnuson Products a call.
