    Just as the title states, anyone running it? I chose this kit for the simplicity if everything being done already and more importantly is has a lot of good parts. Now before anyone jumps on the why don't you s/c or turbo it bandwagon.. I'd like to in the future but I'm not sure F/I is in this cars future, atleast not anytime soon.. And I know people are going to say AFR head this, Holley intake that.. I'm only asking for input from people that have this actual kit. What's not included are lifters, and a throttlebody adapter and I'm pretty sure a spacer is required too. I will have a 70mm tb on the car, cai, 24lb injectors w/ calibrated MAF (probably pro-m), 255 lph fuel pump, and I think thats it for supporting mods, and ofcourse a dyno tune.. Oh and its an auto

    Rather than build the motor up? I'm like 65% with you, other 35% is telling me to do the HCI. Most of that is my dad telling me to build the motor, that powers always there where as the vortechs power is there when you hit it right? the Vortech V3 is good for like 320hp, idk if thats rwhp or not, but thats only 6 psi. No reason I couldn't run 8-9 psi

    People who boost their cars after doing an H/C/I, usually end up kicking their own ass wondering why they didn't just boost the car is the first place.

    H/C/I cars often suffer from drivability problems. and the TFS cam that comes with your kit isnt great with boost. A vortech s/c kit will get you power now, is a bolt on mod, is easy to maintain... and you still have an engine that runs and idles like stock.

    the cam

    FWIW, a set of GT40's, Cobra intake and F303 can be had for around $800, and when coupled with your supercharger, can make a 400+hp street car.

    Yea 5.0 turbo is the way to do it man! Honestly idk though, I hear good things about people using auto for turbo but idk if they mean the regular stock auto.. Maybe somebody else can provide info on the BOV for autos

    Adders combo is basically exactly what's on my car f303 well worked gt40's but a heavily ported Chinese typhoon manifold with a a trim it should be more then enough fun for now . The vortech is nice you can have it done in a day with ease , where when a top end kit is more of a weekend job .
