May be anywhere from 6 months to a year. Possibly more.

I'll switch it when I get there. lol

So then I do it like that. If the cheif reason to wait on the headers and exhaust is to save money on the tuning, I may just say screw it and spend the money. I'd hate to pass it up and it be well over a year before I can drop the cake on the Maggie.

I know it sounds odd, but I litteraly don't know how long it will be til I can get it done. (the Maggie) It may be 3 months, it may be 6 months, it may be well over a year.

I am now back on the SC wagon... I am so confused!

I have Kooks 1 7/8" LT headers and a 2.5" Borla exhaust. It'd save me some money to go SC vs turbo. Then I can be just like PQ! (I've been stalking him).

Oh yeah, about mods... some over zealous mod (who shall remain nameless, cough, cough) once issued a warning to lil ol' me! - harmless lil me! (Said mod did retract said warning... much grovelling was involved on my part.)

Having re-thought my comments...go get the headers now...the sound is killer ('especially if you've got THR mufflers...but I'm biased), and you don't NEED to tune them until you get the supercharger. So no money lost, and it'll actually be spread out across a longer period of time.

I can't quite justify a supercharger when I get my little monster...but I wish I could, I'd be right there with you!

Oho -- I never told you I started a new one...'cept I'm teaching kids to do it, now...and it's just a hair under 25' long! Other one not done, yet -- but it does have shape and epoxy.

As far as superchargers...heh -- no more mind-changing. Consider it trying on different sets of clothes till you find the one that's "just right".

I'm just waiting for Tim from T and T Performance to call me.

I'm probably going Borla all the way back.

And I'll have 3 or 4 different tunes to plug in.

One of them I'll call, "My sons prom night tune"

GTAs idea. lol
