Not sure if this is considered so much a mod thread being I'm curious to others experience/informative opinions on a setup for my car. If it is considered one though my bad cheers
So I'm thinking when all is said and done, weightwise the weight will be give or take 4000 pounds. I'd prefer not to frame modify to fit bigger rear rims. figure comfortably I can fit 10.5's, pushing it 11's. With no modifications needed to fit them. Going to relocate the battery to the trunk as well.
My personal thought is maintenance, cost and learnability would be the supercharger. And I'm thinking being a four door, some weight, a torquey engine to begin with...would run 3.73-4.11. Decent sized street stickies.
Practice in my launches and I'd be a ripper out of the hole. Turboes need that time to get it up unless they know how to launch good but even then. Whats your thoughts on the two options?
Also I read the compression is relatively lowish in the LM7. Running a turbo or a supercharger there anything I should upgrade? Heard these motors are tough but I've never built one so figure I'd ask.

Thanks Arrow
