I like your set-up under the hood. Might if I ask where did you get your supercharge and how much for the kits plus the installation? I am very interested. Thinking the same set-up on mine as well. Thanks for your help.

Do you know any place in CA where I can get that kind of set-up? Thank for the quick response.

There was talk of RMM re-introducing the kit if there was enough interest. I think they were wanting at least 10 people to commit. Don't know what happened, but I don't think enough people were interested. I would contact RMM. Otherwise, you would have to see if anyone was selling their kit.

Looking forward to seeing what changes you made Glen as I got my attention to detail from you.

Thanx vwynn, the stickers are for show purposes only. I was recently sponsored by the Fuel Injector Clinic for a complete fuel system, any injector size, rail, lines, fpr so yes they will get a big banner on my car front and back for shows as I want to help promote them in return.

might i recommend filters on the turbo that match the color scheme of the rest of the car tho
I've been tossed about this, with it being an HKS kit and HKS filters I thought leave it alone but I have also thought some nice chrome blitz filters or some blue filters would blend in more, I'm tossed. I'll try out a few ideas and see how it looks.

We tried to hide as much as we could, its not a complete wire tuck but we were able to clean up the wires a lot. It made a big difference. Thanx for noticing, noone has ever noticed or mentioned it before but I know you've got an eye for these kind of things, Looking forward to seeing what your doing in your engine bay aswell.

Thanks Adrian. Here's some new pics. You should be able to tell a couple of the changes that I made.

lol...that's what I thought it was, but its HUGE and has 2 vacuum lines. I was thinking maybe it could be a bypass valve with the supercharger.
