Does any one know how they are actually going to run the piping for the intercooler? Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the Magnacharger sit right on top of the motor and replace the stock intake manifold? How on earth are they going to route pipes to take the compressed air from the Magnacharger and pipe it to an intercooler and then get it back to the engine? Seems like there isn't any room to do this.

530 RWHP sounds like a real stretch, given that typical readings of the non-intercooled variety run in the 425-450 RWHP range. Based on experience with adding intercoolers to Vortech blown cars, gains of 20-30 RWHP are more likely.

There won't be any piping necessary. The supercharger will discharge straight into the intercooler, which in turn discharges into the plenum. The only necessary lines become the water lines to circulate to a heat exchanger in the front of the car to cool the water.

The intercooler is air to water between the magnacharger and manifold.

This is a universal kit going in a 69 Camaro:

The Corvette unit would have a lower profile. Nineball is building the motor above on LS1tech.

The included computer programmer communicates with the factory ECU for proper calibration the of the supercharger system. Transmission shift points, line pressures and torque converter strategies are optimized for use with the increase in torque and horsepower. Optional extended powertrain warranty is available for customer piece of mind. Intercooler upgrades are available for owners of the non-intercooled C-5 kits.

Ah. I was expecting a air to air intercooler as in some of the other systems. The air to water intercooler would certainly take a lot less room. Thanks for the explaination!
