you should check out Templars Supercharger kit that he is designing, it is gonna rock. it is in the forced induction forum. It is getting close to being done.

It depends on what you want with your car. A 20lbs of boost beast or a 5lb daily driver. The two places above are building a good rep for being quality kits. Shiv is building a nice kit too. It's a little more expensive, but he has R&D'd it to death and used top notch parts. Kent's supercharger it is looking good so far.

IMO, an engine build-up would be best if you want to make like 350hp at the crank. I'm plan on starting from bottom end. I might have to check out that shop.

wrx conversion
I agree. :) Unless you're going to go crazy with fully upgraded engine internals, a stand alone ecu, and a lot of custom work and worrying, a WRX engine with some bolt ons should be more than fast enough. :happynow:

A WRX conversion would be the way to go.

I believe Shiv Pathak(sp?) w/Vishnu Performance is just about to release his wonderful turbo kit. Sure to be one of a kind. Quality is excellent.

Forced Air Tech is a good one. Ludespeed also top notch.


As for superchargers there is Kent (aka Templar) with a centrifugal (sp?) setup and then there will be Suby Sports (Braden) with their screw type SC. These should be available around June 1st.

yes, i agree, WRX conversion is probably the best way to go. remember the stock 00-01 motor has a compression ratio of 10:1. USDM EJ20 is 8:1.
