    Note that my vote comes from already owning #1 that is not yet installed...

    But it seems that if you're going to spend 4k on your motor, wouldn't you prefer 450rwhp than 400rwhp? That doesn't mean option #2 wouldn't be a twin screw, it just means that it may be a Twin screw plus some other parts necessary to improve engine VE and power.

    That's what went behind my vote.

    I would prefer 500RWHP but that is not the point. 93octane most ARs fall between 400RWHP and maybe 450RWHP. A turbo would not have a problem getting to 450HP on pump. Same mods/fuel you would make to get to 450Rwhp all day long would put the turbo at 500+
    These are all estimates anyways.

    You seem to have be slanted toward a turbo now. I wish that the SCCoA had a form just for turbos, there are a lot of guys slanting that way. You should really post a new poll and be specific about choice. Seems like the choices for a lot of those responding were based on what they have now rather than what would be their choice if they could have anything.

    Ken the intentions of the thread were not about me. It was to see members opinions on what they would spend their money. And to see if the demand was there for vendors to see.

    I know they were Ricardo but I think the poll got off your original intent and went in other directions. We know Dave is willing to do twin screws. Is there someone else thinking of doing a turbo kit? I would like to see other power adders but there are to many factions in the club to get it done right now.

    I think any new bolt in type supercharger kit that can fit under the hood and produce in excess of 400rwhp on our cars will be a seller. And the least expensive the better. Warrenty...GREAT!

    I dont care if its a twin screw, an M series eaton, a tvs...Just be capable of breaking that 400rwhp mark while keeping the SC within an rpm range where it will stay in one peice for many years to come.

    A turbo kit would sell as would a more race oriented blower kit needing a new hood or major changes underhood but from a vendor perspective A kit such as Daves AR or Kens m112 that can bolt in under the hood and utilize even a factory IC location..Thats the ticket to the most sales


    For thr same price however give me a complete turbo kit any day
    They don't call me "SLOWPOKE" for nothin!

    if someone made a turbo kit. how big of a kit would be wanted? just turbo and pipeing, or every thing(injectors ,maf, oil lines, fuel pump,ect) or turbo, pipeing, oil lines, BOV(just is what is need for the turbo) this is just to give an idea what kind of kit can be marketed.

    I would think that you would at least need the basic's. Like a stage 1

    If I was going to do it as a business I would do it that way, different stages so you don't lose potential clients.

    A lot of the other stuff you can order and ship out when needed. Do you think SCP has a huge wharehouse?

    If you need to you could set up a sub chapter S corp. Easy to do.

    Go for it if you are thinking it. It may seem big but you just chop that tree down with one swing at a time.

    I think it would be wise to offer the fuel system and tuning as an option, but I think many people buying a turbo kit to install themselves may have fuel system upgrades already. I think having a value package of just the turbo, lines, adapters, etc. would be good.
    God bless!!!
