With over 20 years of performance experience on early to late models. Whether you're looking to increase horsepower with a tune or build a "track monster".
If you have performance in mind, give us a call to explore some specific options for your vehicle.
Here are some more examples of the types of performance upgrades that we offer.
Setting the ignition timing while monitoring engine power output with a dynamometer is one way to correctly set the ignition timing. After advancing or retarding the timing, a corresponding change in power output will usually occur.
A load type dynamometer is the best way to accomplish this as the engine can be held at a steady speed and load while the timing is adjusted for maximum output. Using a knock sensor to find the correct timing is one method used to tune an engine. In this method, the timing is advanced until knock occurs.
The timing is then retarded one or two degrees and set there. After achieving the desired power characteristics for a given engine load/rpm, the spark plugs should be inspected for signs of engine detonation. If there are any such signs, the ignition timing should be retarded until there are none. Another method for setting up the ignition timing on a load type dynamometer is to slowly advance the timing until the power measured by the dynamometer does not increase anymore, then subtract 1-2 degrees for the final advance value.
Setting the correct Ignition System timing is crucial in the performance of an engine. The ignition timing affects many variables including engine longevity, fuel economy, and engine power. Modern engines that are controlled by an Engine control unit use a computer to control the timing throughout the engine Revolution per_minute range. Older engines that use mechanical Electric spark distributor inertia (by using rotating weights and springs manifold vacuum) in order to set the ignition timing throughout the engine's RPM range.
There are many factors that influence ignition timing. These include which type of ignition system is used, engine speed and load, which components are used in the ignition system, and the settings of the ignition system components.
Usually, any major engine changes or upgrades will require a change to the ignition timing settings of the engine.
Magnuson is proud to announce the brand new under the hood HeartBeat supercharger system for the Chevrolet Corvette C6.
Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger systems deliver optimum horsepower and torque in a complete, street-legal kit that fits under the factory hood.
The core of each system is the Eaton Gen VI 2300 TVS Supercharger rotating assembly. Eaton's assembly features a four lobe design with 160 of twist for maximum flow, minimum temperature rise and quiet operation for excellent drivability.
The supercharger assembly has been integrated into the intake manifold for a seamless design with minimal components, eliminating the possibility of vacuum leaks between gasket surfaces.
Edelbrock's inverted supercharger assembly is uniquely oriented, allowing for an incredible amount of intake runner length for maximizing low end torque. An integrated bypass valve helps eliminate parasitic loss under light throttle for improved mileage potential.
Finally...the Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger system is not just a performance upgrade, it also has great looks!
The supercharger assembly and matching aluminum coil covers are black powdered coated for durability with highlighted fins and Edelbrock logo for a unique appearance that will give any engine compartment a custom look.
