about the stage 1 kit...

hey Tom,

do you think i'll have to go with pistons and rods for the stage 1 kit?

i'm currently supercharged via the JRSC and have all the bolt-ons except cams and cam gears, and i also have a 2.5" exhaust, btw, it's a ZX3

my numbers right now aren't too bad, considering i have a JRSC
177whp
164wtq

but i would love to break that 200whp barrier

so, will i need forged internals?
is my exhaust piping good enough size?
what else will i need with your stage 1 kit?
any other parts or is it a straight bolt-in affair?

thanx ahead of time,


Laz

dood why dont you get a methanol injection kit and boost a little bit more.

i think getting toms kit is stupid just to get another 30 hp. or why dont you run a 25 shot of nitrous and get some additional tuning.....

you dont need to get an engine build at 200 whp.

Adding more boost will just create more heat that will make more dangerous boost

Sure you could add water injecton (260.00)and nitrous (450.00)and tuning (MIC 850.00)

Or do the STG 1 kit and stop throwing good money on top of something that will never get you where you will want to be

i am in NO WAY saing you kit is not for him. If he is on a budget he could sell the SC and some of the bolt ons to get your kit, or he already has boost nitruos would be the way to go and get it tunned with a killer chip.

You know I love you kit Tom
The wife and i are already starting to save up.

I know a couple poeple that are looking for a jackson
