G'day, my misses always says stop spending money on your car and save. Shes decided to go on a 6 week holiday next year. So i'm not gonna save, i'm gonna supercharge my car. I want a positive displacement charger and i'm wanting 250rwkw+, what do you guys think I will need to get over 250rwkw?

possibly some internal up grades cams, valve springs, stronger box not sure how those diffs hold up bigger fuel pump and injectors, a good intercooler setup. (air to air/liquid to air)

Mechanical sympathy my friend. Its not how much power you make, its what you do with that power that determines what upgrades you need. 250rwkW will not destroy your box and diff after stepping on the throttle just once.

mechanical sympathy sure but once you spend the money and make the power your hardly gonna drive it like a soft C**k your gonna enjoy it(not everyone but 99%)
powercruise, skid comps, drifts, off street racing, taking it down the quarter all the fun stuff..

i went thru a few gearboxes and diffs. best cure for a f**k diff is prevention by upgrading.

it all comes down to the mighty dollar.
big stall+ big tyres= f**k driveline
