SC and other mods?

Without looking around and searching and searching, I figured I would ask and get it over with.

Aside from beefing up my ATX, what other mods would you suggest in the way of head or bottom end to be safe with the SC?

I am thinking that I will either go all-motor NA, or just get a nice SC set-up. JRSC perhaps.

A head like the FR will bring on the boost earlier...the bottom end will be fine. Keep exhaust at 2.25. B/C the JRSC Zetec blower is small, you will actually lose power if you "open" up the airways to much. Sounds crazy....and that wouldn't be the case with a larger blower like the SVT unit.

the fr head doesnt act well with the JRSC either, the vortec it would probably be better. but chalon is right about having too much exhaust flow with the jrsc.

besides the tranny, u may wanna get 4 wheel disc brakes on there so u can slow down safely from 160 ya heard

Thanks. Does the JRSC come with a fuel rail or injectors?
