Forced Induction HELP!

First of all, I am a beginner to the tuning and modding world.

[COLOR="rgb(255, 140, 0)"][/COLOR]History:[/COLOR]Okay, not that we got that out of the way, I got a 2013 used scion FR-S about 10 months ago. I am a college student, so i used to drive a slow, bad looking 07 corolla. I decided to sell my corolla and get a 2013 scion FR-S, with the extra money I saved up. Now, i am starting to consider a forced induction method for my car, just for that extra power that i am starting to crave for after the 10 months i had this car.

[COLOR="rgb(255, 140, 0)"][/COLOR]A list for what the forced induction (turbo or super) NEEDS to have.It NEEDS to be a reliable system (turbo or super), as i am a college student. It NEEDS to be under $6,500, for WHOLE forced induction system (price does not include oil cooler). It NEEDS to have dependability, as i am a college student, i will get drunk and will do lots of crazy things with my car. It NEEEEEEDS to be carb approved, as many of my family members have a political major, me obeying the laws, and passing the SMOG is a big issue. I wouldnt prefer a forced induction system that will cost $$$ to maintain, and talking about maintenance, i need a system that doesnt need a lab to change the belt; or things of that nature. Also, I would prefer a system that i can google the problem and get an answer asap. I dont want a system that would create me headaches, or systems that would take more than a few hours to fix.

[COLOR="rgb(255, 140, 0)"][/COLOR]Setups that i am considering:Vortech Supercharger kit with the factory (Vortech) ecutune(COMPLETE KIT). With the Vortech supercharger i will run a oil cooler, the mishimoto oil cooler. My setup number 2: Jackson Racing supercharger, with the factory (JR) ecutune. With the JRSC, i will run the JR oil cooler.

Talking about oil coolers:Is the Mishimoto Oilcooler a really good oil cooler? Is it reliable, and easy to maintain? I am aware that i have to mod the brackets inorder for the radiator to fit, but is that all the modding i have to do with the oil cooler, with the vortech s/c on it? Is the Jackson Racing oilcooler reliable and easy to maintain. I heard that u will need to do barley any mods for the JR oil cooler with the JRSC installed... am i wrong?A very noobish question, will i need to run a ecutune if i install an oilcooler. If so, how would i have the s/c ecutune and the oil cooler tune all in one thing? Do i need a custom tune if i need to run a oil cooler with a s/c??? Also, in general, if i were to run two different ecutunes in one thing, how could i manage that???

These are all the questions i have so far. Please tell me which route would be better for me, JRSC, or the VORTECH S/C. If i have anymore questions i will put it on here asap. I will try to keep u guys active with my decisions .

This thread is for everyone that is new to the tuning league, especially for forced induction. Also, all the comments and answers will be respected by me, hate or love

"This thread is for everyone that is new to the tuning league, especially for forced induction."

I think that's what this entire forum is for. Look at the sticky for budget builds.

You've posted in practically every FI thread, so I know youre aware of all the kits.

Now it's time for you to do your homework and figure out which kit is for you. All the info is out there.

That said, based on your criteria (and for the second time) the JRSC is the only kit that checks your boxes.

JRSC CATB + JROC is the answer to your criteria.

It also happens to fit your budget, and is CARB legal.

Make sure you have a secondary means of transportation in case you have a catastrophic failure. If you're a college student and like most students you're tight on cash FI probably isn't the best way to go about things. Most people say as a rule of thumb make sure you have enough cash to get a new engine and pay for labor or whatever if you go FI. Pay to play.

My 2 cents.

This^ if you plan on driving drunk, I suggest just trading in the car and spending that money on a nice 10 speed or taxi fares. As for reliability all FI kits are going to create additional complications that you wouldn't otherwise have.


That said the less complicated the system, the better quality the parts, and the less boost, heat and stress you put on the engine the better.

With that budget and risk, I recommend you not getting boost.
