Nice car, looks very clean!

I like your fenderwell intake, but the 90* bend is a little restrictive. Aside from that, it looks beautiful! What are your mod plans?

Thanks alot, yeah i didnt wanna buy a mock up kit to see what the most Flow Efficient set-up would be, but im happy with it, pieced it all together for 60 bucks so i cant really complain, as far as mods go,

Hawk Drilled rotors, Hawk brake pads, SLP headers, Magnaflow downpipe, mabe 3 inch exhaust, smaller SC pulley, boost gauge, oil temp gauge, tranny temp gauge, complete dress up, valve covers, stainless steel braided hoses, strut tower brace, nothing too crazy, mostly things that will make the car run better and more efficient.
And hopefully look just as good rock

Funny you should mention mock up kits - I ordered one months ago, still hasn't arrived. I assume it's gone out of production and they couldn't get it since i don't see them for sell anywhere else.

pieced together myself for about $60.00 but i have a hook up at pep boys that gave me a discount, it would actuall run more like $120 but if your good with that here's what you need

1 - 4inch to 3 inch reducer for the throttle body
2 - 1 (45 degree) elbow
3 - 1 (20 degree) elbow
4 - 1 (90 degree) elbow
5 - 1 (6 inch) Straight
6 - whatever filter fits inside the fenderwell,

all pieces go together in that order, its a little cramped when you get to joining the 90 - straight and a little wiggling helps. And make sure you use the rubber gaskets that come with each piece to help reduce the risk of leaks.

set-up works great, car feels more responsive but its cool out today.

buy a 180 thermostat, they're cheap and easy to install

buy a 3.4 pulley for the supercharger, smaller pulleys create more boost!

do yourself a favor first and make sure everything else is in order, take care of the basics first, like new plugs, oil change, that kinda crap, just to keep the car in the best operation shape for future mods

GOOD LUCK BRO!!!!!!
