Default been here but now speaking

ive been on here for a little while, i believe i even made an old newb thread. I was interested in getting an NA to go along with my NB. Well i got one, and finally finished putting it together. I focused on suspension and body stiffening first before power. Made my own "frog arms" got a roll bar with door bars, seam welded key parts of the chasis all new bushings with zerk fittings because you might as well, right? I wanted to really learn how to push the car without the assitance of lots of power. its and early 1.6 with pretty much everything swapped to 1.8 except the motor. Corrado front brakes instead of the 1.8s. yada yada

Well, the time came and now i want more power. I was close to piecing together a turbo kit but ended up going for a supercharger. I know most of you will say its a waste cause i cant get as much hp, but it;ll give me as much as id like. Plus i really want the sound. ive had a turbo casr before and now want this noise. haha

well, anyways, i'll be searching around for info on setups and water meth injection which im planning on. thanks for the forum again.
