Big moves Navin!
Congrats. Your ride has come a long way.
I am certain you will make me regret giving up my 323 when I finally get a ride in your new beast. 323 reprazent!

& the best part is you can always extract more power with ESS's stage 2,3,4

That's good to know... but didn't you have some issues when you had a dyno done (I forget, but didn't they do something dumb like not tie down your car in the proper way?)

Thanks Chris! The only way I can do a higher stage than what I'll be getting is if I swap to a manual tranny. The step tranny that I have can only handle stage 1 (i.e. TS1).

Navin even though i m not an ESS customer. I have the ASA TE stage 3 kit and i love it. Anyways, ESS is great company, great service and their stuff is like lego, just goes together so well. A lot of time and testing is involved in their kits and that says a lot about them.

Serioiusly you cant go wrong with ESS, congrats brotha and you will be a happy camper. Everytime I get in my car, I smile.. WORTH $$$$$$

Thanks bro! Hopefully the kit should ship out within the next few days and that I'll have this installed before the HIN DC show next month.

the most important thing during the install - make certain they seal the new gasket and intake properly to the head so u dont have any vacuum issues

You mean for the intake manifold? I just got their standard color (aluminum colored one... guessing that's the satin finish you're referring to?)

My supercharger should be shipped out this friday the 28th and hopefully arrive sometime next week (possibly next Wed. 4/2) at my mechanic's shop.

Assuming it arrives next week, I've scheduled the install during the week of April 7, which should hopefully give me enough of a cushion to have everything completed in time prior to the roll-in day for HIN DC on 4/18.

If the S/C doesn't arrive next week, then more than likely I'll wait to have it installed until after HIN DC.
