    Experience has taught me that no matter what cynicism, or negative bias opinion, there will always be those to exact balance against that. Then they will gather together, and share their knowledge. Perpetually pushing further, and pushing the aftermarket to create or be created.

    Trust me. It will be so. The ever creative will never rest.

    I like the concept of S/C because of my super charged 1989 Mercury Cougar. I love S/C’s. I know that I can fine tune the kit to make it what I want. Turbo’s Re sweet and I love them but I have no experience. I am also close to OV Tuning and am willing to pay Matt to help me tune a perfect system. I didn’t want to wait in limbo so I bought this kit.
    I paid my money and here it is a week later ready for me to bolt on.

    Well yeah. Outliers always exist. Life is never 50/50, black n white. That's silly.

    likely your tune will be locked. good news possibility is that it is based off of Mat's (Ovtune) 2.0 final. Hopefully they will get their shit together and provide a solution for gears too (4.88 and 5.29).

    Fair enough! The tunes are locked though so so fine tuning isn't possible atm, but definitely a possibility in the future.

    If you're good with VFT you can still write your own tune from scratch and then start throwing fuel upgrades and increasing the boost to meet ones own goals

    Their tune is locked, but whats stopping someone from making their own with vftune or what ever its called? Someone who has the experience to tune could make a ton of money selling theirs for this kit.

    STUFF!
    Mat will be able to tune it if he decides to do it. But he then will end up giving Magnuson tuning info by helping others and lose big$$$!

    Someone could probably contact Maggy and request to buy their map for their ECU version in unlocked format, so that they can edit it. But I assume that Magnuson wouldn't do it.

    But you never know.

    Imo the bottle neck isn't the tune. The dudes who do this for a living are pushing as much power out of it they can reasonably fuel for. Sure you can adjust shift points and acis, etc, but that's after Tuning timing and all the other stuff for tuning a SC

    I.E. The 1st Gen S/C, developments > 2nd Gen developments. It will happen just the same with the 3rd Gen. The resources are already available. Unlike what the 1st and 2nd Gen's had to deal with.

    Magnusons tune isn't based off of anything from us. They purchased our software and made their own tune. None of our tune went into their calibration.


    I am not making any tune for this or any other SC. We will provide tuning software and support.

    It's not as easy as throwing a high flow pump and injectors on it. Lot of control work (coding) on the back end.

    Let's not discourage someone if they want to venture into trying to tune their own SC kit.

    Lol no that's not why. We just want to provide the best software solution and don't want people who want to venture down that road of more power and tuning to be discouraged.

    Many tacomas, plenty of room to get along.

    I really don’t think they will ever sell an unlocked version. It’s not their business model. They want to be known as a vendor who sells SC with OEM reliability not necessarily the absolute fastest/most tunable.

    That’s not to say someone won’t/can’t create their own tune but I wouldn’t count on them releasing an unlocked version. It would be like Toyota releasing a Tacoma Kit car.


    From the home page of their website:

    “It’s going to run like it was factory installed because we manufacture and calibrate to OEM standards. Just ask our OEM customers. We also use Eaton rotors exclusively - the same supercharger rotors found in virtually all of the OEM supercharged applications from Audi, GM, Jaguar, and Ford. Most Magnuson Supercharger Kits carry a CARB EO# and are 50-state emissions legal for on-road use. Magnuson kits are known for their driveability and reliability, achieved through our Powertrain Integration approach. Simply put, this is the process of recalibrating the engine and transmission control programs to work with the altered induction path and boost pressure of the supercharger.”
