    okay around the end of this year i will be getting about 3000.00 from work and was wondering would be the best thing to get as of know my car is stock with the full exhuast,egr/smog del,pullies,cai and wires. If i get the supercharger what are the mods i would need to be able to run it smoothly? I already think i might need some bigger injectors and what else i dont know..Hopefully ill have my transmission by then :mad:

    go Kenne Bell that way you dont have to waste boost. Plus you can get 300HP and 390TQ out of them with a stock block stock internal motor. if you really want to get crazy go turbo and say bye bye to any Z06

    Vortech at 8psi with 36lb injectors should be fine.

    -Bigger MAF
    -255lph Fuel pump
    -Trex that comes with the vortech
    -Boost gauge :)

    do they give you the fuel injectors in the kit?and how much of a gain should i expect from the vortech?and i found the kenne bell charger for like 3400.00 and does that sound right to anyone? and does it come with everything like the one gdawg had

    Dang, I've NEVER seen an SN95 5.0 with red interior. I didn't even know that was an option. Cool.


    Oh, and you can find used S-trim kits on the corral all the time for cheap. Buy one, send it to Vortech to be rebuilt, and you're still ahead. Get a pair of 42lb injectors, matching MAF, fuel upgrades, and get it tuned at a local dyno with a chip and you're golden. Oh, I would also recommend an Anderson power pipe.

    like some of them but dont like the fact of not having everything to hook one up. Rather buy the kit knowing i can hook it up with confidence and not wonder if i have everything

    You just have to educate yourself on what's needed for install. You can download detailed instructions off of Vortech's website along with a complete parts list.

    I bought a T-Trim with the race internals, one-of-a-kind 94-95 10rib setup with billet tensioner and pulleys, 4" blower inlet, custom foxbody TB conversion charge tube, Greddy BOV, multiple belts, pulleys, upgraded couplers and clamps, and so on and so forth for $3000. Nothing is missing, and I'm going to buy all ARP bolts for it anyway, so it was a no-brainer.

    Paul.

    Remember if you want a great all around street car that has power on demand, go Kenne Bell

    If you want the fastest ET at the track....Vortech or ProCharger.
