Default 2001 looking at supercharging

Hello FM guys just wanted to start a dissucion with you guys as to what you have to offer in the way of superchargers. What you feel the best engine managment for one is, and just a basic feel for all parts that would need replaced or upgraded if the HP target was 250-275. Is that doable on the stock block?

Not looking to do this budget style i want the best parts so i do not have to spend money twice. I am leaning toward a AEM standalone and one of your better chargers. Thanks for your time.

And as far as introductions "hi". nuff said

I owned a turbo car before i bought my Miata. I know what the advantages/dissadvantages of turbo power are and would like to talk to FM about the superchargers they offer. If your not a FM rep then i really am not to concerned with your opinion. Thanks

Superchargers are fun when they're wound up I'd say that 250 is doable with a stock block. My recommendation would be a Hydra Nemesis with the integrated Hydramist water injection. The AEM is not a plug-in, I don't believe it has alternator control and I'm almost positive it can't control your VVT. The Hydra can.

We have our 1999 set up this way and it's a good hoodlum car that wants to bust the rear wheels loose constantly. Stock engine, although it hasn't been on the dyno since the new water injection so I can't give a power number.

Great info. I didn't know if the AEM was plug-n-play or not. Thanks for the clearification. The hydra sounds like it controls a lot more and has more options than the AEM at this point. I like that. Does the hydra come with all sensors needed including a wideband or is that something extra to purchase?

What 99 car are you refering to? I looked at the shops project cars and the only 99 listed is a turbo car. Must be one not currently listed. I would love to check out the specs on that car. What kind of PSI is the car running?

Do your supercharger kits have the ability to be intercooled or is WI used instead? I had WI on my last car so know how well it works and how much it cools things down.

Thanks for all your time and answers.

Yes, the Hydra includes all sensors and a wideband. The Hydramist is an extra part - you can read about both on our site.

We can't keep the project car listings up to date on our website, there's always something going on. It's the same car that used to have a turbo, but now it's running about 14 psi on a supercharger. On the supercharger, I think the WI is a far superior solution due to driveability concerns. That's why I recommended it.

Ok so i spent some time reading about the Hydra on your site and on Hydra's site. Looks like a great standalone. One question why is your price $440 more than Hydra prices it at?

Our packages include an air temperature sensor and the wideband option, which are extra cost from Hydra. I suspect Hydra hasn't updated their site to take into account the higher price of the 2.6 box either.
