Interesting stuff. play around with the pulley size? Not familiar with fwd setups, but would a s/c put you around 250-285whp? Because I'd imagine some head work and different pulley size would prob bring in more than that!

3" pulley at 9psi will set me at 225whp. that is the limit for the oem ecotec rods in my 2.2LAP... stage 2 adds 25whp with out internals and supporting mods. Stage 3 is where the big numbers com in.

interesting. I noticed theres a guy with a red Cavalier I think. he's turbo'd if i read his intro correctly. It'd be cool to see a highway pull (In Mexio lol) to compare turbo and supercharger on similar builds.
