We need a little more information to truly be helpful.

What are your goals for the car? What do you want to do with it, daily driver, track, autocross?

And finally the big question, budget and timeline?

I started with a 92 1.6l about 5 years ago. My car is over 300 rwhp now. But the 1.6 and M45 are long gone. Don't let these turbo guys try and change your mind.

Superchargers are great!

An IC is a good idea.

sorry about that, I daily the car but i really only go to work and home about 30 miles a day if or close to it.
I also autocross it, but not like crazy autocross cause ive done it like twice. My goals are to autox the car and eventually get another daily.
as for a budget, i work 2 jobs and would put like 6 to 7 hundred a month towards the car

That is a pretty good sized budget. If that is the case, I would start with engine management. Makes your life much easier when you start desiring more power. That will also give you time to practice on making the system work for you. There is a learning curve to hot rodding, and while the motor is very mild, you are not as likely to blow something up while you are learning to tune.

My suggestion would be to take the 6-700 a month and bank it for a few months. Follow this thread and see where it goes. If you want to get serious in the car and stay supercharged, you are probably going to want to upgrade the blower at least and maybe the motor as well.


Follow the "More than you wanted to know" link in my sig for a mod list on my car to give you an idea of some of the possibilities. There are certainly others, but those seem to work for me.
