sorry, I'm a little tuner slow.
Pulley and thermostat are some of the cheapest mods you can do to gain a bit of power, so you might do those first if you are looking for inexpensive mods without much in the way of side effects. I think the thermostat costs like $30, no reason not to do it that I know of.

Last I read (unless there is an update) is that Tom Henry was'nt doing a supercharger until 2010...where did you get that cost figure?

Changing the thermostat affects fuel economy and affects it a lot, if the stock stat is a 180 dropping to 160 would reduce the economy a lot.

+1

And the oil temps are something to pay attention to too, depending on how the car is driven.
