How much did this supercharger change your numbers from the stock ones?

Stock is 220hp and 220tq for you guys right?

Andrew I posted in your FS thread. But damn man that is one sick setup. I would totally sell my setup and buy yours instead of upgrading mine, but thats a bit of a hassle. Good luck with the sale man, and get back to me about the lugs :)

How reliable has this kit been for you, what kind of extra maintenance is required?

I may be interested if you know someone who can install/tune this for me and maintain it in the future if something goes wrong.

Got any pics of the engine bay?

You can either attach images to your post... or you can host them on something like Photobucket.com and then put the link in your post.

I see all the smack talk you're laying down all over the forum... lol

You're trying to provoke me to settle this issue with you one last time, eh? :p

Supercharger is tempting... but I don't think it's for me right now. I can hardly use the ~220hp I have right now... I might as well throw my effort into handling (which I have been doing)... atleast I can use that.

I tried to simulate a race on the PS2 with some BMW... as soon as I pushed the "X" button I was already at 150 km/h. I stopped there... he kept going... I was pwn3d. :(

just to let you guys know.

I strongly suggest you don't pick this up unless you know the basics about boosting a car and the dangers of what could go wrong. There is a fair bit of head aches I myself ran into and if I didn't have some knowledge I would've went boom by now. Just saying make sure you do your research to know what to avoid, precautions etc..

that would've hurt the pocket book quite a bit. V160 swap alone is insane for pricing!

Wouldn't it be a better mix to swap in a Turbo Supra motor and trans, than mod the existing IS300 engine,...from a proven reliability stand point?
What are the drawbacks?

If you wanted to save money on boost buy a honda.yes do the swap it would be more reliable.but a lot of other variables would determine reliabilty.your stock auto IS tranny is good for about 400whp with valvebody upgrade past that point good luck.my 2 cents
