Saving money is where its at. Be suprised how much money is saved when you have a goal to meet.


I love the sound of a super charger. He was about a 1/4 mile away and I could hear the whine. In cab its pretty quite.

I still say 460 S/C

I like the progress. I like the comment that you might just sell it and start over for fun. It's so true, I feel the same when I'm working on something or fabbing. I like to start with a clean pallet, and thats how I feel with the atv's right now...and my truck :) It's nice to have a clean/stock working platform.

Us OHV guys have to fab our own kits, as the SOHC guys have the aftermarket to supply theirs. Although I would have gone with RPCasters kit over the explorer express one.

Why dyno it if you cant hammer on it for the first 1500 miles also...


Everyone says go do burnouts and take it to the track... when they dont know how to "break" something in...

Take 'er easy

RPCasters kit is a good kit, but for the price i got mine and the free goodies along with it from other people i couldnt pass it up.

There are guys on RPS running 10lbs with this charger, 60 shot, and w/m injection and are pushing close to 400hp at the wheels. I think this will do fine for my needs. LOL
