I haven't done the same application but I have an 89 Firebird with a
supercharger. I recommend getting subframe connectors. There are a ton of
other things you can do.
You can build up a 10 bolt to stand up to quite a bit of horse power. I
suggest getting a aluminum differential cover with a stud girdle. You
should weld the axle tubes to the pumpkin. If you start running slicks,
then a 10 bolt probably isn't a good idea.
I would guess you'll be getting 30-40% additional horsepower out of the
supercharger. You'd be running about.. what? 400-450 horses?
That's all I can think of right now..
Wow - you can dump the clutch at 4000 rpm and not smoke it! Yes, it's
a stick, so I will no doubt smoke the clutch. Any advice on the clutch
upgrade? Any advice on setting up the moser 12 bolt? How much should I
save up? I don't plan to run it at the strip, but don't want to rule
it out. Thanks for your help.
That's how sticky the Drag Radials are. Street tires... 1700 rpm
launches or you smoke 'em. I haven't broken anything yet, but when
I go shopping for parts it's likely either fasttoys.net (they're local)
or thunderracing.com - the guys on the F-body mailing list I'm on all
have great things to say about them.
speaking of which - lists.f-body.org is another place for useful stuff.
I see they even have a list for supercharged ones. :)
Yes, I thought the clutch and diff would be the first casualties. I
expect this would end up somewhere between 450-500 bhp at the crank.
A guy with a Z28 with the same supercharger and exhaust ended up with
460bhp at the wheels with this setup, so might be 500+ at the crank?
Thanks for your help!
We had a guy in here that did this...on a 99(?) and sold the car..after
months of nothing but finding out he was constantly breaking something.
He sold it to a cop up not far from here...and I think he got it all worked
out...will try to contact MadMaxx and see if hes still around..
