[QUOTE=Uberwagon;494888]Wow. This is the single nastiest forum I've ever seen. Even the biggest d-bags at the Porsche and Ferrari forums don't tolerate that.

It's what makes this forum special, and keeps out all the douches.

And congrats on getting it installed. Save up $$ for turbo.

Even though its not a turbo, boost is really neat. Make sure you retard your timing to about 6*. What are you doing about fueling?

I had a supercharger on my old NA and it was a simple install and a nice little boost for the track (even better as a trade for unused daisies). But a turbo is the reco if there's money to be invested. Just enjoy it and have fun.
tolerate what people asking totally useless questions? honestly the question he is asking is like should i swap my 944 for a 914 cabrio its a no brainer. Unless he is just ecactly set on the slow pos lunch box then he should keep his 944.

Cool! Boost is good. Nice to here it's on the road!

More boost is better though. Pulley + custom intercooling or water injection + megasquirt to add some additional PSI when you get bored with where you are at.

I don't think there were any 914 cabrios, I believe they're all targas.

Also, I'd much rather have a 914-6 than a non-S/S2 non-turbo 944. Little lightweight, mid engined cars with a six cylinder and an open top, compared to a slow, heavy GT car?

Dude, VW does it stock on their cars...

Also used in rally cars, and the rest is mainly people with a bucketload of money and a desire for something "totally custom."

Congrats on the boost. Do you need a boost upgrade crank pully. I got one I'll sell you.

I like the supercharger too. LOL They both have their benefits.

If you wana buy the crank pulley let me know.

yeah they where targas my mistake but the 944 still has more potential imo. I would still scrap either for a nice 911 preferably 80's spec or newer. the slant noses always apeal to me.
