if going supercharger, leave the stock one on, for the time and effort your better off just waiting, Im not a fan of the charger....but sounds sexy with the whine. but for a 14.2 quarter seems like a waist, but then again thats just me Im going all motor for now, and girlfriends car will be next after mine. LO mani is simple, helps over 3500 rpm, but lowers a bit in the lower rpm range, and you would also want to do the 2.3 tb. but staying stock till charger is better for you. just get secret cams, and wait for charger

fair enough lol but once its on you gotta drop a pulley size to make more boost and then add the different intake so the blower screams like a bitch

Turns out I won't have the time on Friday either. Bloody work. I could do it on the weekend if I weren't flying out to Vancouver. Oh well. I'll do it eventually.

Hooray! I don't have to work again on Friday! And I found the good socket set with a wrench that has some leverage. I have to work my balls off so I can go to bed early and get up for 5 am on Caturday.

why not just tighten without torque wrench, you will know when too tight, dont over tighten but you can do without hell, me and scott have done it, not rocket science yet lol

Doing it Friday. If my shoulder is good, I'll pull the battery and do the intake. I got another idea for a mod from the guys at 9GC, so I might order the parts and go nuts again. If it turns out, I think it will look bad ass. If not, I can just repaint!

My left shoulder is no good. At all. To recap all the things that have happened to it:

1) A 12 lb axe fell on it, thankfully blunt side first.
2) I got a repetitive strain.
3) I got a repetitive strain.
4) I got a repetitive strain.
5) I broke both rotator cuffs.

Unfortunately, sometimes things are hard for me to do without a bit of help, especially if it involves stretching my arm or any repetitive motion.
