Default Non-turbo newb

Hey everybody. I drive a bone stock 1991 Smurf (mariner) blue as a daily driver and a silver supercharged 2004 as a toy.

Been thinking about a MS but have no experience with them. So trying to collect some information about it with a supercharger setup. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

That work? They're both a bit out of date as I have relocated the IAC since these were taken.

The TDR pieces are sooooo nice looking. Of course, I'm biased in that department.
Welcome........ he he, I thought I recognized that car.

It's close, but not quite. This one also has blue leather interior and a blue canvas top. I bought it from a preacher near here with about 8400 miles on it 2.5 years ago.
