Time to Hook Her up.

I have had my SVT for 6 years now and it just got paid off hehe, never really joined any forums till now thanks to a forum member that found me at a gas station lol.

With my new intruduction here Im about to start modding my SVT from scratch and I can get everything done by a local turner ( TAVracing.com), my first thing in mind is going with the Powerworks SC, I just love the wine and I have no problem with staying around 290 whp at max, im sure the PW can get that with the proper tunning and what not. Then 2.5" Borla Cat-back, , and a Hi-flow Cat (Not offroad).

Im wondering though if this bottem end can handle a twincharge setup...maybe keep the PW at 9 psi and a Turbo at 12 psi to stay safe.

Thanks
Carlos

Powerworks...nice.
Twincharged...even nicer yet.
^^^You'd most likely be the first.

But, you're in the wrong place.

Twin charging is just not worth it.

I would personally go turbo, much better feel

On a side note. Have either of you heard of our State wide meet in Daytona the last weekend in July? If not, please PM me or follow the link in my sig to the thread for it. It would be great to have you both. And Rob,(BigRed03) lives down by you guys, he will be there also.

Twincharging will be the bane of your existence. Slap a GT2871R on there and run 12psi. You'll be damn fast.
