Install it before winter so you can hit it from 60 mph in fith and spin the tires.
That might not be a good idea, but install it quick.

Addition of the S/C would make snow driving more entertaining. Extra power in a light car with a LSD would equate to a lot of tire spinning in snow. That is if there is no traction control engaged.

OK, I''ll break the news......it came today

A TOTAL DISSAPPOINTMENT!

No instructions, no serpentine belt, and who knows what else is missing. The manifold is the biggest piece of **** you can imagine. Looking at the parts, I can't see how he can justify $2000.00. Remember, he wants over $3000.00 on his website. Oh, and the gaskets are HAND CUT. I mean like with an exacto knife. You can see how sloppy they were done.

I think he got his skills making parts for JC Whitney. I want this pile of crap out of my house ASAP. Calling him tomorrow. Pictures to follow, when my level of disgust subsides.

Sorry L8, pics when you get a chance. Also take pics of the rotors of the supercharger because he states they are "new" Does it look like a new supercharger? After I see pics I will give you some suggestions on how to get a refund if he gives you any trouble.

be interested to see pics ... i guess kinda like rubbernecking at an accident site.

sorry to hear about this L8, but i guess from what had been happening, it's not totally unexpected. i'd check out the guy's DASC kit he has for sale for $2000, sounds like a good deal.
