well i REALLY want to do the comptech s/c, and i just recently got a promotion in my job so i'm thinking hard about it. this year i've just been focusing on handling next year i'm debating on braking or i/h/e and i think the s/c might be the year after. i wish i could get my parts as cheap as you cause the CAN $ is killing me.
I was reading about superchargers vs. turbos for the Civic. And one school of thought is that turbos are the way to go, because superchargers work better on torquier, large-displacement motors. If you're imposing a load on the little 2.0L engine--one which doesn't really start making power until it gets way up in the rev range--it's kind of like an unnecessarily taxing & inefficient way to make power. In theory, a turbo--which works best with a high-spooling, rev-happy motor--should be the better way to go. In some peoples' opinions anyway... *shrugs*

Doors look great, btw!
