I installed my BC coilovers this week. I went with BC coilovers extreme drop 14k front 12k rear and swift springs. All I can say the ride is amazing way better than stock. This setup out performs the stock suspension in every way. I also weighed the stock suspension to the BC setup. Stock shocks/F sport springs 65.3 pounds VS. BC coilovers/swift springs 39.2 pounds a weight savings of 26 POUNDS!

Heres a 0-75 pull. traction control was on and just lowered my car so camber is off not getting good traction and it was a bumpy road. ignore the nose in the background.

Looks like it hits 60 in the 5s, so with a supercharger it just saves some milliseconds from stock

I couldn’t say milli-secs it definitely fees a lot faster. Besides I couldn’t tell you what my 0-60 was before with traction control on. I plan on ordering a GTECH meter and see what it says. And being that it is a belt driven supercharger there is that loss of power down low so seeing a difference in launch might not be so big, but from my experience so far I see a huge difference when I’m from a rolling start 25 to 35 mph range it pulls a lot harder up to 100mph!!! It’s very hard to stopwatch the video!!!! And both videos were done after the car was S/C....

What meth kit did you go with? Where did you mount yours?

Hereís a pic of the engine bay for all you none believers... haha. Ignore the cheap filter I got a K/N waiting for install but first Iím going to relocate the filter where the intake pipe runs the filter will be located on the other side of the inlet pipe that runs to the throttle body.

I had an idea of how to setup the filter but donít know if it would be worth the extra hassle to set it up this way. I was thinking about put a larger filter opening and filter area. Would if get more air in?? I would weld a larger pipe on to the original size pipe and increase the size to a 5 inch pipe. I put a quick drawing together to get my idea across. Now I need input if this would help performance at all???

I think current set up already have enough air flow. What might help is locate the filter near the area where you can get colder air and that would help more. Please clean that filter which will definitely help lol, no pun intended.

I'm using Snow Performance Stage 2 meth kit. It's boost controlled and a progressive spray, so it's controlled by a module where you set the Boost level where it starts (I have it set around 3psi) and where your max boost is (7.5psi). So it ramps up the spray from minimal to 100% spray between 3 and 7.5psi. I trunk mounted it so you have to buy an additional $50 check valve to allow it. Simple install too.

Thanks for info. Is the pump very load when it turns on? Did you ever run your car on 7+psi before you installed the water meth??

That’s my plan to relocate where it would get cooler air and I could then install the snorkel back in the car to get some cool air in the engine bay.

It's very quiet. You won't hear it, even if it was installed in the cabin you would only hear a click basically when it comes on/off.

I ran 7.5psi for almost 20k miles before installing the methanol, and I live in hot and humid Houston Texas.

Yeah i see the picture, that is probably a better location since it is further away from the hot engine. There could still be a problem though because air still comes in from front grill and move through the hot engine before getting to that filter. I think somewhere near the front grill but further away from the hot engine would be good.
