Looks like it it's coming along nicely! I can't wait to see what kind of numbers you're getting out of it when your done. That tubing looks like an easy target to be damaged..

I have been watching them for a while. It looks like they make some good products. Only one way to find out, trial and error.

Now if only I had something turbocharged like before then I would buy their product. I miss having boost.

The only problem with an AWD setup, is you really odo need the proper electrical for it, or else thats like being locked in full 4wd, which isnt cool at all when yoru on pavement its fantastic for track and offroad use though, haha

That is made to work with a transaxle. It wouldn't work.

Hey how about an Exploder AWD transfercase but with a front driveshaft disconnect. Someone on here is working on a disconnect for his truck.

you mean like a disconnect for a vehicle that you tow behind your motorhome? i seriously have thought about it, but thats more moving parts that can fail....

True. I was just brainstorming. Here is the topic.

If I remember correctly I remember seeing a t case from a jeep(maybe) that was selectable between 2wd and AWD not 4wd.

Those of you that were asking what I was going to do with the supercharger... There is your answer.
for those who ask, it seems the supercharger housing became his intake manifold
