I apologize for the delayed updates. I am sure many of you know that life sometimes gets on the way of these types of projects :roll: . What I have been working on since I had the car apart was motor mounts. Before the turbo I was getting a lot of wheel hop. I wanted to stop this before I break something.

So I decided to gut and fill three of the mounts pictured in the link below. I have one mount left which is the hydraulic passenger side front motor mount. I have a couple ideas for that I just need to test fit each of them to see what works the best.

thats gonna make for some hellacious vibrations. i'd love to know how she feels when your done with the mounts.
can you even get springs small enough to run 4-6 psi without cutting them. as far as ive seen, with a good tune you should be able to run 8 psi. correct me if im wrong anyone. turbo is not as volotile at 8 psi as a supercharger

Hmmm... I'm curious as to what you mean by "turbo is not as volatile at 8 psi as a supercharger"... not sure what you mean by "volatile"? Is there a difference between 8psi of exhaust induced compression -vs- positive drive induced compression? Are you meaning harmonics relative "roots" type charger -vs- the free-spooling trim of a shared shaft compression/exhaust wheel?

Just curious to understand this concept better, as I'm not so familiar with supercharging as compared to turbocharging.

Thanks!

i guess what i mean is a broad spectrum of crap. lol. i read ALOT on here. im just not a post whore. anyways, what ive seem to notice as the most abundant problem with supercharger at higher boost levels is the heat it radiates. that much heat makes for bad juju. in my quest to turbo my car ive seen plenty of cars handle 8 psi just fine for a year and more even without fuel or engine upgrades
