so what apparently you missed that kit for the SVTF that pushes 200/200 to the wheels with a VERY conservative tune (those are the minimum numbers tom will guarantee with warranty on his car kit and a completely stock engine)

my point is for the cost of a JRSC it's a foolish move now that there are quality stage 1 kits available for ~3650 installed and dyno tuned.




Your concern is irrelevant since the baseline mechanics of it's output just are not there. That supercharger is not capable of putting out the kind of torque required for a FWD vehicle to beat a C5 vette, that's why I told him to be realistic.




Which would explain why I previously stated that he would have no problem putting down stock GTs with ease and never doubted him on that, but that with a JRSC it just wasn't possible to reach a 345/350 C5 vette.


Considering that JSSVT04 has 220whp for the same price with the JRSC, how is 3650 a good deal? We live in FL and it is not cost effective to tow a car 800 miles to have a turbo kit installed and tuned in NC. Not to mention taking the time off work to do it. Not nut swinging but 200whp, a gain of 50 whp is not worth $4000.

By the way:

Look at the pics posted on his site for the stage 1 kit. They are of the Zetec, not SVT.
