IMO the magnuson is the worst of all the superchargers out there for coyotes, magnuson discontinued making them likely because they didn't sell well and probably just sold their remaining stock to livernois at a huge discount just to get rid of them.

Or why the Roush over the VMP, when VMP kit does nothing but improve where the Roush leaves off

Not even a valid point
a. Because its $6349 not 5500
b. you could buy a vortec/paxton kit for $5100 and get it installed for less than a grand so if price was the reasoning there are cheaper kits out there


ultimately I would list the magnuson/livernois kit at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to coyote blowers.

The LPF kit is a quick fix kit. Cheap. The Vortech JT really performs. I did not expect the Vortech to make me like it more than turbo. Probably because my twin kit was not the best.

The Roush out performed the VMP gen2 on the same dyno and the Roush did it under more humid and warmer conditions. There is a long post on this in one of the FB Mustang groups. Behind the scenes guys were upset for falling for the GEN2 BS.

I got my Roush Phase 2 from Beefcake. He was at a way lower price than everyone. Terry can help you figure out which one will best for you.

It's pretty rare for someone to recommend a blower other that the one that's on their car isn't it?

For me it comes down to support. I'll just say I am really happy with my Beefcake, Lund, Whipple combo in that regard.

Little weird when your in bed with your wife and she asks if who your emailing.

Beefcake, honey...... need more parts.

5100$ haw? is that shipped? without injectors or tune right? That's way better deal than I imagined you could get though....

I may as well chime in here. I'm the guy that bought the Livernois Magnuson kit and shortly after piston #7 broke 2 ring lands and the ring snapped. We looking at the piston, we still do not know for sure what the cause was. I've had the Roush and this Magnuson on an '11 stick and this '15 automatic and the magnuson made significantly more low end torque. I have also had a Vortech on my 2009 Bullitt. It was the HO intercooled kit. Definitely the coolest looking. Poliched with that big intercooler. I put it on myself and it was a LOT more work than the PD blowers in routing the serpentine belt.
However, the sucking sound at idle was really awesome and the way it built power was smooth and linear wheras the PD blowers produce torque almost too quickly unless you have very good tires.
Since the prices are similar, the purpose of the blower is more important. For street screwing around I would do the PD, also for straight drag racing, Centri or PD. But for road racing and winding out gears through the turns I would do a Vortech or Paxton.
This is just my opinion.

Kinda remember seeing the Beefcake Paxton special on sale once for $5250 ish. That includes BAP, ID1050x injectors, no tune though. If I see that again I might have to go for it and help my gt350 mani out. Also usually around the holidays Whipple has 15% off at Lethal and I think Beefcake sometimes. Thats a big chunk of change off stg2 kit, and thats when i would buy one, worth the wait.
