Test fitted bra, makes a perfect sleeper when you can't see the inter cooler. Will only be using it for long trips

I just did the same to my engine cover 2 days ago and noticed you did it too. as far as the turbo is a single? And what's it pushing? I was debating on a turbo or IPF Supercharger.

Does the supercharger put out more or less? That should mean your like 470hp to the crank right?

They make 80 to 100hp less base on the majority of sc. that's correct about 470 to the crank.

I reacted the same when I noticed you had a V6. . I get it alot too from people when the find out mine is a V6 but that's the advantages we have. You can do 470hp and over 500 in torque and still get great mpg on a daily. What's the exact brand of the turbo? And do you have a video?

Got the seat covers install today took 2 hrs. Not to hard of a job. They look okay not a perfect match. Will probably look at real leather next year depending on now these hold up

What are the cost savings of a single turbo setup vs a twin turbo? What else was involved in the upgrade? Fuel pump, fly wheel, fuel lines, trailing arms, etc? How much did the total setup run you including the tune?

Cost saving over twins about $2000 or more depending on the turbos. Don't need to change fuel components not boosting over 12psi yet. Far as trailer arm yes you will need them to control wheel hop. Have a spec 5 clutch and fly wheel to put the power to the ground. As far as price mine was cheat because it was a demo car. But expect to pay 5 to 6 thousand.

Just a question, what body shop are you using? I am looking to get my wheels powder coated but want it to be a fair price. not $100+ per wheel.

Also how do you like the pistol grip shifter? I was looking at the T Handle.

My painter doesn't do powder coating. But I will check another source and shoot you a pm.

Like the pistol over the t handle I switch them about 8 months ago it give me a better grip on the shifter as opposed to a t handle ( less miss shifts).
