I used to think I had one of them "high paying" jobs, then I got married and had a kid Just be reminded that it is a slippery slope. The true cost of going FI is never just from the kit, you are going beyond the original design intent of the manufacturer and you need to take into account the cost of possible down time, supporting mods, etc.

Have you tried driving an NA car with E85? Seems like a good middle ground before making the huge jump to FI.

As much as i would want to i actually dont live around any stations to constantly fill up on E85. I was thinking about flexfuel but it would honestly be kind of a waste of money as i'd barely be able to get e85.

And yeah i hear you about the money thing. Luckily i dont plan on getting married and my girlfriend just wants cats lol. She actually has been pushing me to get it because she loves the car so i've got that female backing haha.

Same here. When I was in the East bay, an E85 station is a good 30 mins out of the way, so it was never worth it. But now that I'm in Sac, E85 stations are all over the place! But now I'm needing a bigger car, so eh.

Hate to break this to you, but I think she planning on murdering you in your sleep. Ask anybody, no sane woman would want you buying an SC knowing fully what is involved j/k

It actually makes sense to me. I feel like the higher the driving skill the less of the need for boost as you're good enough to keep that momentum going and dont need a quick way to catch back up from a bad turn or whatever.

I realized, I never answered your questions.

1. I have JRSC C30 kit with DW 700cc injectors, 300c fuel pump, flex fuel kit and tune by Bill of Delicious. I have been told by guys at a couple shops that are highly talked about on this site that I should have no problem when smog comes due since I have stock exhaust and magic CARB sticker for hardware.

2. When I first installed the supercharger I had the JR CARB tune. Put out 185 hp. Then 4bar MAP and tune up out 231, then injectors blah blah and I'm at like 240+ with gas and 310 with e85.

3. Have about 5k miles on the Setup. Haven't had a single problem with the car in 11k miles..

4. More power everywhere.

5. No, but I would be happy to give you a ride if we ever meet.

6. Your welcome.

This is the exact reason why I went turbo. Not even a month after my ride I placed my order for everything.

When I sat again in the same car that at that time just upgraded to running flex fuel with the turbo. I again went and did the same right after.

NA is perfectly fine and I do miss how it ran with my stage 1 OFT tune and full bolt ons but there's something about the surge of power you feel when the boost starts building.

@Xxyion let me know if you're interested or have FI questions in general

this happened to me ... I avoided driving friends' FI cars even when they offered, because I knew I would want boost myself if I did... until one night a friend practically begged me to drive his car home because he was dead tired... so I did... and as expected that did it. I sold my other awesome handling but underpowered sports car (MR2 ZZW30) to fund the supercharger project...

Kinda resurrecting this thread but a small update. I decided to go with the Edelbrock supercharger. I realized that CARB is pretty important to me so i went with a kit that had a CARB legal tune.

Reason's i went with this kit over other kits with CARB legal tunes (WORKS turbo).

It comes with a warranty. This is big for me. Especially cuz this is a new car. It also has a lot of nice low end torque which for me is where i want it. Having driven my new Fiesta ST a bunch i realize i really like torque in the 3000-4000 range and the Edelbrock kit has more low end torque than the Jackson Racing kit (from what i've researched). This kit also has a lot of recommendations from people who own it as well as multiple mechanics.

So the kit gets installed Saturday and i cant wait. Super excited.
