Yeah we will see how well it'll do! You and I both, I am not a fan of using nitrous. I am going to let the stock ECU self tune itself. Most of the 2IS s/c'd cars are on the stock ECU and are nearing 400whp.

Hate to say this but, thank you for being the test car! Shoot, if the stock ecu can self tune at a conservative boost for like 100whp gain vs full bolt-onp; I'm game!

So glad to see your first start vid! Congrats!! Your car is exactly what I wanted to build - amazing on the eyes with real HP to boot! One thing I would recommend if you haven't already planned for it: 50/50 water/meth injection to cool the intake charge. Simple basic kit ($300) set to inject at 2+ psi with a small GPH nozzle placed after the maf and before the twin screws.

If you want my input you know how to get ahold of me!

personally i don't think anything significant will come out of this, good luck for trying but I'm sure the ending to this story won't be a surprise.

I think builds like this are important to the car community. It answers the "what if?" question and gives insight to people who choose to modify their ISF's in the future. The supercharger was a crazy idea. My only concern was how were you going to tune the car.

maybe so if you truly believe in it, but I'm more of a pessimist than a optimist, I won't elaborate anymore as this is someone else's build and not a general discussion on what is being done.

Unfortunately Defratos is right, saw on his Instagram the car is being parted out & returned to stock .

I agree, it's more for me than the community, but I am glad to help in any way, Let the car self tune. It's not a complicated system, more air = more fuel = more power (in theory)

That's okay everyone has their opinions, I am still not sure what mine is yet other than it works. I have been busy traveling so I have yet to take it in for a run on the dyno. Until then I encourage you to remain pessimistic as I know I am. I am just doing this because I can.

Actually you're both wrong...sort of. I was parting it out but I actually decided to keep the car and just started the import process for another car. The S/C was doing just fine when I had it on, I'll have it back on shortly since I just got invited to show my car at the San Francisco International Car Show!

Import process ey...... I know a certain car that has just passed it's 25th year in existence. I've been lookin for one in canada. Could it be what I think it is?
