    IMO....Nope, Leave it Standard

    Its a shame you dont like the V8s...Its a 3.2 V6 and i dont think the "big Boys" will be too concerned even if you did put a blower on...

    Each to there own i guess but id save ya coin..:beer chug:

    You will notice the supercharger more than any other mod, as in if you do a cam and lots of other ****, the supercharger will still be the best single mod you can do & it will still **** on all those other mods. So yes it is worth it.

    Money better spent on a turbo kit will end up with a much faster car than sidemount charged

    I am still tossing up which is the greatest waste of good cash.

    Spending $7000 on a 5 year old V6 engine(worth ???) OR ........... Valentine's day.

    (Hint .. Don't do it)
