Re: My Magnacharger install

I think I figured it out why all you snow belt guys are putting the maggie on mid winter. Its the gas savings, right Chad? I figure if I didn't drive my beast for 5-6 mos. a year that'd be a maggie in savings, gas here now is 3.65/gal. for super!

Re: My Magnacharger install

I wish I could get gas for that. Our price here is $1.20/Litre. That's $4.54 per US gallon.

Welcome to the Great White North!

If I knew if vendors were going to have the sale that I purchased on I would have waited til warmer weather. I might have even waited on the install but I have a bunch of guys here in Chicago that wouldn't let me keep it in my closet(reference to Knuckles). I have a company van for work so it has always been my weekend vehicle. 4 1/2 yrs and 17000 miles.

I have only owned mine for one year, It had 4 miles on it when I bought it. Im on the boat 6 months of the year and I still managed to put 15,000 miles on it! I need a TDI Jetta for a daily driver. Can I get one with a vase and flower? What color is your flower?

Re: My Magnacharger install

I am jealous. You have a maggie AND an orange flower in your "wife's" car.

You can quote me on this. "Real men install their own supercharger's, however, a true man has an orange flower on the dash of his dream car".

Oh! How I wish I could pay that little for gas! Here in Korea, we're paying 2.00+/Liter, close to $8/gallon.

Re: My Magnacharger install

Thats amazing you pay that much for gas in Korea. We frequently obtain petroleum products from Korean tank ships in Alaskan waters to distribute to fuel companies and its not nearly that expensive.
