    quick thought, how much will the stealership charge for just the ECU flash?

    i guess thats not too terrible. still a little pricey for them to just hook it up to a computer and walk away though.

    did you ever end up getting supercharged memario?

    Not charged yet... I had the option to take on one big project this summer. It was between getting boosted and getting a lift. I went the lift/wheels/tires route as my current suspension is broken as all hell. My lift should be here on Dec 7, but won't be installed until after the turn of the year sometime. That being said, I will look into another big project for this coming summer, which logically would be boost. Not quite set on either turbo or S/C setup yet, as turbos do better at high elevations... It's just tough to get money together while going to school full time. I am thankful for a decent job that allows me to pay for school and still allows me to buy shits on the side.

    It must be nice to go to school and mod! I cut my modding to a minimum when I started school. Christmas money and tax return will be most of the mod money I have for the next few months

    Yeah, modding is the only thing that keeps me sane... I work, go to.school full time, run my own company, and manage a few businesses on the side. I work for it. The unfortunate thing is that im not getting it the "college experience" as I have no free time. Its still up in the air as to whether or not this lifestyle of mine is the right one. People keep telling me im gonna get burned out... I already am, but I keep pushing anyway

    Installing a blower is easy. Simple as a manifold swap. Whats hard is building a custom pulley system for a really huge blower.
