Snort performance also do turbo kits, as do TSA for that money. If i had that moola i'd go forced induction.


However your 18, insurnace companys will rape you dry for fitting forced induction, and the cops will put your car off the road if they find it.

supercharge it, then break the bonnet pull, rig up another bonnet pull somewhere hidden, so if ya get pulled over, cops cant see under the bonnet, go home, simply unbolt the blower, pop the bonnet, stock :D

have you spoken to any of the local work shops about it yet??

straight out anything blown willbe more drivable for a given power output.

big cams will make your low rpm power suffer.


if you want to go down the head work big cam path, i now of a local guy that does a very good job on the heads. that with the alted 3 cam and the wold3d would get some very good numbers.. but if you have an auto i would suggest getting a high stall converter

dont get a wolf 3D. there is no point if your not going to be doing a turbo conversion. and the capa kits come with a chip for your standard ECU.

that depends on the cam and if you like your car to idle and not to stall all the time
