I'm thinking with what I have now I would be doing probably a 15.5-15.7, and with all of the mods I want I would be doing mid to low 13's.

With your current mods you will run approx high 15's.

You need to revise your mods list, its a mess.
Lol, what do you mean it's a mess? Those are the basic mods I was looking at and I did not put in tuning or anything but could you help make it less of a mess with giving me some input?

First off, when will you have the money for all these mods?

Second I don't suggest getting the vortech kit non aftercooled.

Well, all those mods are not going to be done right away. I am slowy saving up for them. Right now I have $370 and I am going to buy the race header and then save up for the flex and keep on saving and buy more mods as more money comes. Oh, and I also forgot about Tom's MIC kit I think. But anyway, the vortech will be the hardest thing to save up for but I plan on getting a job once I finish my highschool bball season. Anyway, why not buy the vortech non-aftercooled?

Good driver, maybe high 15's 15.8 or so normally low 16's depending on traction, temp and skill...If you are buying the vortech def. get the cooled version, it will make a few more ponies and it will be less hard on the engine!

Well, it's been a while since I looked into the vortech superchargers, but if aftercooler is the same as intercooler with turbos, you won't want to skip out on one of those!

The way I understand this (and this might be a bit simplistic) is that once your blower starts spinning really fast, it gets hot, and when it gets hot, it heats the air it's sucking in and blowing out.

Hot air takes more spaces than cold air, so the amount of oxygen (or combustable goodies) you're packing into your engine decreases with the heat of the air, because then a smaller amount of air takes up more volume.

An aftercooler (or intercooler, the term I'm more used to) is basically a radiator which the air is pumped through, before it's sent to the engine, thus delivering cooler, denser, more combustible air to your engine. This means for you, more BHP, longer engine life, and a more consistent performance (since with a cooler you won't feel how the car starts losing power when the supercharger starts heating up).

Well, hope this explains a little something about cooling forcibly inducted air [:)]
