good point but unless you bought it for less than 10k not going to much profit.
my dads dealership sold it to me for cost ($12,500) it has 16,000 miles on it. i had 3 people who would pay 18,999.00 out the door that day. but i wanted it with a passion. its fully loaded and looks the same it did the day it origionally left our showroom in 06'.

being 20 years old insurance is bad enough. thats why i have to stick with the v6. in all honesty

You've got three options:

1.Modern muscle supercharger kit. Can be found under the modern muscle section of this site or is sold from BMC. Costs about 5.5k but is by far the best. You'll be running above 300rwhp with stock everything else. PM JohnParts about information for this one

2. Whiplash supercharger kit. AKA thomas knight supercharger kit. Less expensive, less powerful. Personally I haven't heard anything about its reliability or seen any dyno sheets. Should PM BlindPig on this one.

3. Build you're own kit. :D

Only if you have a diablosport predator and are tuned for 93 octane and are not getting any long term or short term knock.

My observations on different octanes and the 3.5 motor are as follows.
87 is good and can be run without any problem whatsoever
89 has gotten me better gas mileage on trips, feels slightly better in daily driving but without the predator I wouldn't spend the extra 10 cents.

93 octane with diablosport predator is the way to go if you're looking to make the 3.5l's acceleration bearable. This plus a CAI is just fine IMO for city driving. Certainly not a race car.

go to inertia motorsports and get the 3.5l that they stroked to a 4.0.........pushing around the same as a supercharger at about 300rwhp and about the same price.... it is something different then just a supercharger..... i think thats the way im going then throwing the super on it later.......that would put ya over 400 no problem........

Thats interesting... I hadn't heard they finished the stroker motor yet. I'd be interested to see the dyno sheet. Any idea on where to find this?
