Nice paint job but man....

Gl finding an sc OP.

May be best to contact ess, sometimes they are willing to work with you on the price a bit.
The price is for a full service install. Meaning they will transport your car to IND, install the kit, dyno it, + paint and ship it back to you.

Now,what doesn't seem right about power shifting ?

You are a braver man than I Gunga Din! Pretty incredible acceleration, I guess I'd just be too much of a wuss to rev a NA motor that has been boosted to 300 RPM over it's already very high original rev limit. To be clear, I have no technical reason to say that, just my opinion.

Well, its different driving the car fast than hard.those motors were built as an NA high revving motors so i don't see an engine failing cause it was revved to 8600 or 8700RPM even boosted.As long as the NA or SC tune is 100% spot on,you don't have to worry !
Lets see what my new built motor can get up to,hopefully 9K but dont hold me to that,haha !

That is why I have have fears, limits and equals and you do not. Can't wait 'til you build is done. I'd love to have a 9k NA rev limit, much less supercharged!!
