I need to see what $3800 gets you and how much performance. The Kraftwerks kit was right at $3500. That price is unheard of for HKS.\

After further review, this charger seems weaker than the Rotrex Kraftwerks\Jackson and Vortech offers. Just another centrifugal option out there, but if you're looking for power, Vortech and Rotrex systems are where its at. Vortech can spin the fastest, but Rotrex has the C30 and C38 blowers depending on how much power you're aiming for. C38 blower can achieve 14-15 PSI. I'm getting the C30 which maxes at about 330-340 whp on e85 with a smaller pulley which spins it at max RPM. I'm not that crazy... lol. The C38 can go 400+ whp.

I think optimally, you will see the HKS supercharger in the 250-260 whp range realistically. Same price range and power range as the Innovate without the huge low end torque of a twin screw.

It's just more of the options really, probably will end up going Jackson Racing anyway just because I don't want to deal with the filter element being in the bumper with how crap-tacular the bumper tabs are. Sounds like the 3800 is for the full kit sans fueling upgrades, and with your own tuning solution, so puts it inline with the JR / kraft without tuning. I think it will be on par, but I'm going to watch it anyway to really see what comes of it, more competition is better for us! I will want to see how much you like the kraftwerks kits though. Diamond purchase being made today, so my toys get to start being bought soon

Nice!

Yeah, my bumper is already pretty effed so I'm just going with it. We need new headlight cradles with better clips badly.

What's new with them? Aerodynamic? I didn't read about them yet.

Mainly road noise, but lower drag = better mpg... which will be offset by drag by wider tires. It creates more of a true flat floor under the car. its like 200 bucks.

We did go, but a few were unable to join. @psk still has more to do as we found some exhaust leaks on his frs. I think he should be good to go in a couple more weeks.

I was helping @ericmpena get his F 'n A 4th brake light installed. Going to be doing the fiancÚ's Dart oil change in the morning and I got a motive bleeder to do a full brake fluid flush, Goodrich SS lines, and TRD ceramic pads this weekend too. Need my stock crank pulley back on and 4. 9/16" hose clamps for boost protection. So long Perrin crank pulley and soon to be goodbye TRD intake.

looks good! i'm guessing you had someone else do the hood/trunk install? did they mention anything about the drilling/dremel holes for the trunk?
