Default Maggie & CAI?

My Maggie TVS2300 is on order; Kooks long tubes are going on now. I want to have a CAI installed and want to know if the Blackwing CAI will work with the inter-cooler on my C5?

If not, can someone recommend one that will?

Thanks.

Hi ^^^^^^ what larry said , I think there are two different part numbers , 97- 2000 ,and 01-04 so keep your eye on that .

Think the diff is only the air injection location .

I didn't think that the TVS2300 was available for C5s. From whom are you getting this, and is it a custom one-off, or is it a regularly available kit? Thanks for the reply.

Default Maggie kit for C5

I got my kit from Colorado Speed online. As of last Friday when I ordered mine, it's on sale - 5% off. Made it $7,077.50 exactly. They're made to order, about a week turnaround. Full bolt on kit, but you need a tune.

Stock hood won't fit.

Do your research. I just had 1-7/8 Kooks long tubes installed. He said I should have had smaller ones. I asked about a smaller pulley to offset the pressure loss. He said it was not recommended. But he called the Maggie factory and they agreed I need the 3.1 pulley, which is only $65 from CS. Most places it $110.

The hood I ordered from RKS; phone is 951-894-7883 (Hope they are a sponsor). Part #04011007 The hood needs a notch cut in the back. No structural change.

We do have some of the best prices out and you cannot beat the brutal power the maggies and put out on the street and down low!
Thanks for the sale and the name drop!

yep, the 2300's been on the C5s for about 4 years or so now. i got mine in 2011 straight from Magnuson.

for intakes, i grabbed the LG version of the Blackwing. works fine

i agree to stick with 1 3/4" headers unless you know you're turning it up to 11 later (or going with a bigger-cube engine).

how much boost you wanting to run? with a 98 engine, i wouldn't push more than 9-10psi. the 3.3 got me about 8.5 @ sea level & 1 7/8 headers, so i'd say that's about where you'll be with a 3.1 at your elevation. 93gas with a rich tune got me about 480 - coulda easily had >500 with a touch less fuel & another degree or two of timing, but i was just starting out & didn't want to risk it. the past couple years, i've been tuned for 11 @ sea level & it's a little more fun

you'll probably also want a 104-ish serpentine belt. the one Magnuson sends in the box is sized for a 3.6
