yes true. that kid spent more money on his tires than the set up of the supercharger.

We are still tuning the computer and finishing the interior but I think the turbo version will walk all over the SC version. The SC version was a strong runner though.  Best description is it felt like a stock lo-po V8. There were problems getting enough boost because of the pulley ratio. It ran around 10 PSI or so. The SC was an M90 out of a T-Bird SC.

We pulled all the SC stuff off. I think he might be selling it if someone's interested.
