Default Signed up to get help and inspiration.

Picked up my 1994 M(eibo) in August of 2013. The body was in good shape, but the transmission ground in 5th, had an open diff with a bald tire, sitting on blown tokico's and lowering springs with 16" rims. After much work she has FCM coils #800/#500, RB front sway bar, FM strut brace, Wilwood 4pots, braided lines, Bossfrog fender braces, FM frame rail brace, Nardi NB wheel, NB transmission, Torsen diff, Bride seat, Blackbird GT3 roll bar, CM carbon Kevlar duckbill trunk and 15x8 bronze 6UL's, and a plastidipped hardtop. Future plans include a matching seat for the passenger, it had the NB seats when I bought it which I didn't realize, Autokonexion nose, Megasquirt ECU, WB o2, and Jackson Racing supercharger.

I suggest staying away from the JR Supercharger.

Why? My main reason for getting it was that it's CARB legal and was "cheap" when I got it.

It's not that he's being lazy, although that may be the case, it's that it's been beaten to death.
In fact: another stupid supercharger v turbo debate
