If your gonna increase boost , it’s probably a good idea to run headers . Helps keep things cool and happy as your gonna push more air into the cylinders . Coming in should be efficient as possible going out . Especially with increase cylinder temperature. Your supercharger will produce more heat ,so at some point your computer will pull timing to keep things safe . Our pistons can’t handle detonation as oppose to forged.

Also keep in mind , your stock fuel system is good for about 600whp then you’ll have to start thinking about “boost a pumps” or fuel system and injectors .

I knew that I wanted room to grow so I chose to have a fuel system instead of running a boost a pumps and what not .

Oh and congrats on the purchase !

I 'll let you research it first as the money is of little importance to me just trying to help out. I am a big fan of JRE but he requires you buy the packages from him to get the free tune so the money you spend on buying my pulley/belt might make the difference in qualifying for the free tune.

I donít know the exact threshold at which point the intercooler brick will fail
But at some point with increased boost it can .
Same goes for the spring isolator ..

If it were me Iíd take care of the supporting stuff first so you wonít run into any issues once you start ramping the motor up.

But you'll end up running the tune package after a while... its just too much fun.

And then realized your missing out on even more fun with their 125rwhp package! Lol. It's kinda how this mod think goes.

Love the car man! Red is my fav. I bought a yellow which is a second choice for me behind the red. She sure is Purdy! And thanks for the links. Now you got me wanting to spend more money Itís an addiction for sure! I used to build Turbo Quads back in the day and take them to the dunes. Crazy fun times and super addicting!

Headers are a must. I swapped my 1 7/8 inch for 2 inch headers and love them. But it’s a way tighter fit. Had some issues with rattling til we got it all dialed in.
Catch can for sure.
Solid isolator. Mine went out like 1000 miles after I bought it. Bought mine with 11k miles.sitting around 21 now.
I swapped to Michelin 4s tires pretty quickly. Loved a set of Nt05r but couldn’t keep it up with the Florida rain.
Re-enforce the brick is my next mod with a better heat exchanger.

Remember I use an ATI Damper so not sure of any compatibility issues with this 10% ring with a NON ATI Damper. Both belts as one was a spare, ring was on the car for a summer. If you want to proceed private message back and I will work out a Paypal for $100 including shipping.
