For years, fourth-gen F-body enthusiasts have clamored for the low-end power and reliability that only a positive displacement blower can provide, and unfortunately the tight-fitting cowl didn't seem to provide the clearance needed for such a modification. However, where others saw a roadblock, Ed Potter of Late Model Speed saw possibility. Building off a relationship established while employed across town at Lingenfelter Performance, Potter worked with the folks at Magnuson to put together an assortment of parts from Magna Charger kits for various other LS applications. Meanwhile, the task of somehow achieving additional cowl clearance would land squarely on his shoulders. We visited the Decatur, Indiana, shop to see just how he accomplished that task, and how a Magna Charged low-mile LS1 TA convertible would fare on the dyno.
