Cold weather and a supercharger....

Im from wisconsin and planning on putting a jrsc with bbk on my svt when I get home from iraq. Now as most know, it gets cold as hell in wisconsin during the winter. My focus is my dailiy driver and I will be driving it in the winter. Is the cold weather going to be a problem? Will it effect the supercharger in any way? I know more power will possibly equal more slippage on snowy roads hahaha, but im used to driving on crappy winter roads in wisconsin. I used to drive a manual 98 mustang all year round. Not too smart I know, but when you are a poor college kid who loves sports cars you do what you got to do to own one!!


Tom

Remember, with FI, everyday driving is just like what you're already used to, until you go into boost...
