    what is your bidget to spend. that would be kinda hard to get with a supercharger, unless you get a stroker motor with forged internals on a supercharger. That would be a easiler goal with twin turbos..go over to ls1tech..two shops just made tt kits that put down around that at the wheels, but both where on forged motors..and both were iron blocks I believe.

    700 on a DD.....oh what fun.
    Either way you are going to go with a full forged setup. To reach 700 and have it last. So in that case "I" would go with a blower vs a TT. And a well built motor with the right heads and cam, I would think it would be no problem.

    Yea cuz i was actually looking at the D1SC pro charger and i saw that it supports 950HP at 35PSI...even though i would never go that high but atleast i have a big ceiling.... I heard that supercharging was better then TT..... The TT setup that i've seen goes for $10K and the D1SC goes for $6K and change.....

    I think the D1SC would be the best bang for the buck in comparison with the TT kit...

    You will not see 700HP for $6k. You will need either SC or Turbo plus heads, cam, headers, exhaust, etc. Then you will need clutch, 12 bolt, etc.

    I have all of that already minus the 12 bolt and the FI

    We are currently at 688 rwhp and 697 ft lbs of torque, with a D-1SC at 14 psi in a Trans-Am on my Mustang Chassis Dyno, this would be much higher on an unloaded type of chassis dyno, such as a DynoJet.

    http://www.exoticperformanceplus.com...Car.php?car=27 Link to the car.

    We built a 382 ci stroker engine for it, and have a mild Lingenfelter GT2-3 camshaft in it, along with Patriot Performance Stage 3 LQ9 heads. Bob

    even if you have head's already, you may need new heads to lower the compression of your engine to run more than 7psi. either new large chamber heads or lower compression pistons or shorten the stroke and lose cubes along with compression<i doubt you'll do that. you may want a new cam too if there's a lot of overlap on your current one cuz you dont want all the air forced in going out of the exhaust valve after the exhaust.

    I think you gotta think about the whole picture. first of all if you want to be able to change your boost later then supercharging is better cuz you can always change pulleys and run low boost now and drop compression later and run more boost later with another pulley.

    or if you want to go faster now (at the track) you can get a 12 bolt (with 4.10 or 4.11's and slicks or drag radials since you have a clutch already and drop from higher rpms and you'll run faster since you already have good power assuming you have a good set of hand ported heads and cam and a good dyno tune with all that and your headers. and get the blower later.

    I would recommend getting the rear axle first and good tires, I personally would get nitto 555rII or something like that that improves handling too not just drag but that's me. i would recomend this cuz you still are not taking advantage of the power you have so why add more power? you'll never get it to the ground anyway. and when you do you'll snap your rear. i would also get at least some global west rod ended lca's, rod ended panhard bar, and of course sub frame connectors if you dont have those yet.

    overall (unless you have a lot of suspension mods) your car as a whole seems to me that it lacks tires, rear, suspention, sub frames, etc. mods more than it lacks power. who wants a car that cant move forward cuz it'll just spin the tires and when it does get up to speed can't turn or stop that good any way?

    Just my opinion, good luck.

    I never said i didnt have suspension..... I have every suspension mod available, with nitto 555R for street use and M/T Drag Radials for the track so i will grab... I havent overlooked the fact that with all this power and no bite i wont be going anywhere.... So it's all done already with 4.10s and just with the 411RWHP i'm making now i bite as hard as ever launching with out a chirp or slight spin...

    I'd go with D1SC. Correct me if I'm wrong here guys, but he won't be happy with the 4.10 gears and FI, right? It will rev too quickly.

    Procharger D1SC great choice!
    Corret 3.73,s are a good choice over 4.10,s for F/I

    if you swap gears you may want to put it towards a 12 bold instead so you're not spending more on the stock rear. but i know that the SC is expensive enough so i dont know if that is economically an option.

    i hope to be able to buy a procharger too someday. Good luck with the car.


    Oh, and i read something somewhere that you should get the upgraded pulley system with the procharger so the belt doesnt slip.

    For the rear i would go with a Ford 9" and 3.89 gear or 4.10 you have a stick right so you can very your launch and shift it into 6th gear if its a 6 speed and you should be good ok for RPM's
