Looks great!!! I think it would really look better on your car with some CF vinyl on the cover. Would complement the rest of your CF.

I agree but where do I find carbon fiber vinyl?? If it doesn't match the stuff I currently have perfectly, it may not lookas good as plain black plastic.

Which mods are you referring to? Just the Carbon Fiber accessories or the Twinscrew Supercharger too?

Damn Fran,

That's the best looking engine bay I've ever seen.

We need a CT meet.

Speaking of it...how many miles do you have on your car now with the SC? Have you had any issues?

I have about 6000miles on it. No issues except cold starting, it stumbles a bit for a second or two.
