My car runs a powerdyne supercharger through a 3 inch intercooler and blow through mass air meter. The charger brackets and pipeing are all custom made. I eliminated the power steering in favor of a manual rack to save weight and to make room for the blower. I also had to relocate the battery to the trunk. Other mods include: front and rear ST sway bars, AJE coilover kit, black cobra wheels, bbk camber kit, shorty headers, custom exaust, plx wideband O2, Comp polymers upper intake, AJE tubular control arms, B&M shift kit on rebuilt AOD with heavy duty cooler, crossdrilled brake rotors, 42lb fuel injectors, mass air ecu, and a stewart warner boost guage. I also installed a class 2 tow hitch for pulling a trailer with all my friends dirtbikes.

Future Plans:
I have already purchased parts for doing 3.55 gears with limited slip. I also plan on building a 347 stroker so I have a replacement when I blow this motor up with to much boost.
