cheaper and less fking around on average for the average man... maybe for off idle power delivery. maybe for not liking the ptschh. maybe for wanting to be a bit different than everyone else.

I know I wouldnt mind a capa vortech on my AU.

goo question, why not turbo?
I guess i thought supercharger would be easier, especialy the ones not requiring oil lines, and it would be easy to remove if i had to sell or something.
and geting new extractors lol, so dont wanna go to turbo manifold..
:wink:

280k is high but depends on condition of motor


If it blows up go to the wreckers and get a lower K EL or AU motor and swap it over... under $400 you should be able to get a long motor with low K's.
