Excited for you. Boost really wakes up the car

What is the small air filter for? And your bracket looks powder coated? Nice touch if so.

Filter is for valve cover removing line that would run to the intake pipe. Yea I polished up the procharger and went with a flat black on the bracket and spacers. Only thing I want standing out is the shiny charger. I also put flat black on all the piping as well. Ill get more pics up of the finished product soon.

I've always lived by the "work your way forward" approach with power. Meaning, start with exhaust, midpipe then headers then boost it. That way by time you're pushing more air through the system, it is able to breathe better. So throw headers and exhaust on. Your engine will appreciate it.

Subscribed for some dyno numbers. Hopefully you get a chance to dyno the car bone stock.

Headers will produce the most power other than nitrous. PPE headers, you are looking at around 10-15WHP. A full catback ~5-10WHP, intake ~5WHP.

Car was put on dyno today stock was 260hp to the wheels. Wasn't there when it was done..but when the procharger is installed I will post final dyno sheet. Also just purchased a set of long tube PPE headers today. When ever those get in ill get them install and run it on the dyno and see what kinda of numbers I get.

Got some final numbers from the supercharger install. Only got to drive the car from the shop to my home today... WOW the power is deffff noticeable!!! Base line I put down 260.5 hp and with only 3.5 psi the car put 299.8. Iím happy with it but I want more so today while I was at the shop I had them order a different size pulley so next time I post dyno it will be with from 2 to 3 psi more. Ill post the dyno with the new pulley size than another dyno run with the PPE headers installed.

My car is completely stock on the base line dyno...

Nice nikogio38... 40 whp from 3.5 psi is not bad, looking forward to more dyno numbers with the new pulley and headers... Keep up the good work

Glad to hear you finally got the car out of the shop and put down some good numbers.

Snow mode won't make it more accurate, by the way, it'll just keep your car from wanting to downshift while on the dyno when you get it going.

What kind of dyno are you running on?

Hayarms I think on the top of the dyno sheet it says what type of dyno they ran it on. YOU WERE RIGHT THE CAR IS TOTALY DIFFERENT WITH ONLY 40HP... Iím hoping with the pulley install ill gain another 25HP and then with the PPE headers hopefully another 15HP!! Then after this is all done its time to put the IS on a diet!! IM SHOOTING FOR 200 POUNDS OFF!!
