    Word of advice, dont spend the money supercharging it unless you plan to buy it out after the lease otherwise that seems likes a lot of money down the drain. Give me a moment to check out the intakes.

    The blower doesn't come with the lightweight pulley's, which I would view as a benefit if I were to use that blower...

    The intake would get changed with the blower so I think lightweight pulley's and exhaust, and intake later if I don't get the blower...

    Oh and:

    That is all kinds of amazing.

    Definitely get the pulleys & exhaust 1st, worry about the rest later. I hate to make a rule for myself. No ordering new parts till old parts are actually installed and functional. I was getting to have too much of a stock pile with my old Xrunners supercharger system across my living room floor for a few weeks xD.

    Also the blower says it works with the factory intake:

    "Stylized airbox and filter housing design allows for additional flow, while retaining the factory cold air ram intake. Quick release fasteners allow for simple access to filter for change/cleaning."

    Basically everything regarding the intake that is outside the engine bay stays intact with that blower.

    Yea I just looked at the designs, plus the dyno on the page shows you lose in the low end. I'd keep factory if I was you, put in a high flow filter. That's my plan with the tC.

    With 294 hp and 210 ft lb tq at factory redline with that blower....considering I get maybe 150-160 hp and less tq, my first second and third gear shifts are usually at red line...this little mofo would be fast as shit.

    No, just a stock turbo'd Genesis Coupe 2.0 Rspec.

    Trac off, high rev launch. I went FR-S because the 2.0T R-spec has some nasty turbo lag.

    Also, I wouldn't buy a full out intake without a tune. From what I've found in the FT86 club forums is that more people than not end up with idle and stalling issues with an aftermarket intake without the addition of an ECU tune. And even then, the power addition is marginal at best. Toyobaru did a very good job designing the factory intake. Looks like if you're going to touch anything on the intake without a tune, a HF drop-in filter and the Perrin inlet tube get you the best bang for the buck. YMMV
