Magnuson questions

What is the boost on the Magnuson SC? What are the pulley options and what does the boost go to for each? Are there any changes that should be done with the optional pulleys?

Last, is anyone using Meth/H2O injection with a SC?

Also keep in mind, exhaust setups will change your boost levels. Boost pressure isn't necessarily an indication of power. Someone with a cat free exhaust pushing 6 lbs could be seeing more power than someone with a stock exhaust pushing 8 lbs. It's all about CFM not PSI.
 
So reprogamming isn't required? I ask because I'm in CA and custom ecu flashing is probably frown on.

Any thoughts on water/meth injection w/a SC?

Some form of tuning is required. You can not install the S/C and just run it. You need either the TRD reflash (done at the dealership), a piggyback ecu (like the UCON), or the Bullydog Tuner that is offered with the Magnuson kit. Seeing that you are in CA I believe the only option you have is to purchase the Magnuson kit with the Bullydog tuning unit. That would be the only way to get that stupid CARB cert you need.
