I say do it!!! All you have to do is change the pulley and install a power pipe for more :rockyou:

as for if you motor can handle to boost..well that depends on alot of things.i ran 16 osi on a 302 with 184,000 miles for 2 years till it gave out..it ran 11.17's constant.so it all depends.but id buy the bigger one.you can always change pulleys and gfet up to 12-16 psi with the right pulley combo

Thats a good price

like Tat said, pulley it to where you want the power to be.

The question of whether or not your motor can handle it will all depend on how much it has been abused and how much you plan to abuse it. If you don't drive it like you stole it all the time, you will be fine.

It's a good price. Your running this on a stock engine?? If so, I doubt the car will see 10-12 pounds of boots..to restricted. Once you do heads and intake...you will HAVE to do the fule system, at least bigger injectors and an fmu.
