StephenElsbree1986 You ccan run 10-12 PSI safly and use a gt28ish or other med 3k start 4,1kish full boost and expect 225-275. Depends on what you have exhaust/intake wise I guess. You'd need a tune reguardless if you went a SC also it isn't just bolt on and go.....

You could be completely right. I am no boost expert either. I guess I just assumed you would have to do lots of internal upgrades regardless of any stock engine. I guess you learn something everyday! Thanks Chris.

But a turbo is a lot of custom work if I am assuming correctly. And you have to build the engine to withstand the boost pressure.
Supercharger might not be as efficient but its pure bolt on power. : )

What about a ProCharger? Sounds like a pretty cool hybrid of the two above options.

Suspension? car could used it not trying to go crazy but what would you recommend?
