Hey all,
I have recently decided that I am going to go ahead with the supercharging idea for my XR8, using a raptor kit. But before I do that I have to ask the questions.
1. Are there any engine mods that I have to do to account for the extra power and boost?
2. Do these kits simply bolt in or are there mods that I have to do?
3. With regards to the fuel system, do I need to upgrade the injectors/reg/pump/lines?
4. If the injectors are to be upgraded, will the ECM handle the extra current needed?
5. Will my standard exhaust (with 2.5 cat back) be sufficient?
6. Should I use a high class type of spark plug?

If there are any other things that I have left out please don't hesitate to add. I am looking for between 6 - 9 psi.

Thanks in advance to any and all assistance.

Good luck with the raptor should be great. I have no answers to for but I'm sure would be threads here somewhere about!

Not a massive amount of power. Am I able to just do the blower for now and do the other bits later if/when I want more?

the heads are to small,gt40p heads and cam,roller rockers,explorer intake,headers will give about 217 rwkw,with stock ecu,what im doing.i think it will be a good set up.you can go more,but then the brakes have to be better,and transmissions and diiffs,may need work as well,to take the motor power,thats he hidden costs.
