FAQ

  1. Supposed to use a special tire machine for the P/G wheels?
  2. Is the Arrington 5.7 with the forged crank, safe for the Supercharger & Nitrous? Noticed 200HP Kit!
  3. If I stay with the HP Throttle Body, is the HP & Torque rating the same?
  4. I have heard that the Supercharger should not be covered (shaker). Too much heat build up ad some S/C companies will void warranties. What do you know about this?
  5. Do you offer military discounts?
  6. Can maintenance parts be purchased at a decent discount, direct from P/G?
  7. Are there full P/G documentation paper's when I pick the Car up?

Q: Supposed to use a special tire machine for the P/G wheels?

Not really a special tire machine as all 20 inch tires and wheels require updated equipment. But nothing that cannot be found at any typical tire shop.

Q: Is the Arrington 5.7 with the forged crank, safe for the Supercharger & Nitrous? Noticed 200HP Kit!

The addition of Nitrous to our engines will void the limited warranty provided by Arrington.

Q: If I stay with the HP Throttle Body, is the HP & Torque rating the same?

We use the OEM throttle body.

Q: I have heard that the Supercharger should not be covered (shaker). Too much heat build up ad some S/C companies will void warranties. What do you know about this?

We went with Magnuson for the Supercharger because it is manufactured by Eaton and is the same basic unit used on OEM models by Ford and Chevrolet with much success. Yes, superchargers do create heat but to date we have not had any issues with our units. Also, some supercharger units create a significant increase in intake air temperature over what we see from the Magnuson units. Mostly due to the air to water intercooler and internal radiator found in the intake manifold of the Magnuson. Magna Charger's new MP2300 TVS supercharger uses the same advanced technology found in the new LS9 Corvette and '09 Cadillac CTS-V. It's four-lobe, high helix design is more efficient requiring less power to drive, has cooler discharge temperatures for increased power, and is much quieter than previous models. The major components include a high-velocity port intake manifold with integral water-to-air intercooler and of course, the MP2300 TVS supercharger. The increased discharge temperatures found in other units are the reason some of our competitors are using methanol injections to create more horsepower as it decreases discharge temperatures. This is a great practice for racetrack use as you can constantly check the methanol reservoir, but it's not very practical for extended street use.

Q: Do you offer military discounts?

We do, and we thank you for your service! Please give us a call at 336.495.6650 and we will work with you on your discount. Military discounts are only valid on Petty's Garage brand parts.

Q: Can maintenance parts be purchased at a decent discount, direct from P/G?

We don't typically sell general maintenance items such as lubricants and filters since they are OEM style items that can be purchased at your local auto parts store.

Q: Are there full P/G documentation paper's when I pick the Car up?

Yes, you will have the sales contract for the performance package that identifies the RPSS production number. Each vehicle also has a unique under hood I.D. tag that identifies the cars VIN, production date, PG Serial # and RPSS#. We also include each car in the Petty's Garage production registry.
