Supercharger would be sweet, but not for 7K. I could sell my V6 and buy a V8 for less than half that. That being said I would love to see someone do it up.

cool, eh.. practical, no.. lol for 4k you can easily upgrade.
Easily upgrade to what? A GT? NO! A V8? NO! Not for 4K.

As for the SC, if you read Duffmans sig line, you will see some of the problems he had with the car and got rid of it.

Geez, really intelegent thinking there that only two of us got a lemon. Besides that what does that have to do with the price of the car, or tea in China?

Glad you like your car, I enjoyed mine too up to 45K miles when it had serious engine problems.
If you can find a GT for 4K over a V6, then sure go for it if that's your ticket. Or you could be different and not follow the main stream and modify a V6. To each their own.

you guys are lulz,

is anyone else thinking for even if it was 5-6k to upgrade to a low mileage GT, you get better brakes, a locking rear diff, a better sounding motor with m0ar mod potential and many other amazing things?

I looked on Auto Trader V6 18K-22K, V8 20K-24K. I would be so tempted if my V6 wasn't running so good. Having a reilable car V6 or V8 is priceless!

wouldn't it be cheaper/easier/and more powerful to just drop the car at a shop w/ a couple snails and say "have at it"?

Well, I'm almost thinking that a turbo setup would be the best choice for us V6 guys (disregarding the "get a GT" comments). T'would be original, cheaper than a SC, and more reliable, and let's not forget, would end up putting alot of V8's to shame. It's not easy finding these cars as the days go by so I figure, if one owns the base edition, try to work with what you have, be creative, be original, and regardless of how much power you end up making, at least people can admire the fact that you had the idea in mind to stand out instead of just "upgrading to the next edition."

The whole sweetness of it is to have a V-6 can go door to door with a non modded GT.

Will your v6 transmission handle the power without rebuild? What about injectors, fuel pump?

I had a turbo v6. Turbo kit 6000 installed. New trans after 5500 installed, fuel pump 800, block gasket leaks (can't remember pricing), meth injection kit ...

Don't get me wrong, when the car worked it was fun... But watching gauges for kr wasn't.

Also for the insurance comment if you wreck and your cars gets assessed and they see a sc on your car it's modded without their knowledge and it's misrepresentation. They will deny your claim and you will have no insurance to back you. Ask me how I know.....

Would that be because you were racing?
