I keep going back and forth between wanting to stay N/A and wanting a turbo. Its driving me nuts. I've gotta get a 6spd in there first anyway, so that will give me plenty of time to figure out what I want.

if you stay n/a, it's really expensive and boring unless there is 6 throttle bodies.

instead of the 6 speed, how about a zf 5spd with the cheaper 3.15 diff and the stage 1 TRM turbo kit?
that could be a healthy trouble free car for many miles to come. as time goes by, you could build the head and h/gasket and crank up the boost to 12 or so for over 350hp.

I'm a supercharger fanboy, but that TRM is the best kit out there for the money and function.

Yeah, that's the argument I'm having with myself at the moment about being N/A.

I guess the only honest reason I need 6spd is because it'd be nice to have an overdrive gear and the "bling" factor of a 6spd e36. Plus I could run a bit shorter final drive. I have 3.23s but I think it'd be nice to have 3.38s plus a turbo. But that might be pushing it.

I talked to the guy at TRM and he said that I could run his stage 1 kit for 5.5k on all stock components except for the head gasket and make about 350whp.

I'd be all about a supercharger if the kits for these cars had that classic S/C whine to them. I hate Mustangs but everytime a cobra goes moseying past I love the sound of that s/c whine

Yeah. Moton's are only good for a street car if you like rebuilding your shocks every 3000 miles.

That's what I'm saying. Maybe I'll rebuild them once every two months while sitting in my solid gold recliner and using 24 karat diamond wrench set
