The biggest challenge to making power with the b.o.m. SC setup's is always cooling. Even Danny will tell you that while his blower may be capable of >500whp, it'll be a struggle to make it a reality without a more robust cooling setup.

The KW kit's biggest detractor to making power is fitment under the hood. Fitting a bigger blower is a problem. So the KW kit is currently limited to ~400whp until a solution for fitting a bigger Rotrex on there comes out. That said, ~400whp is plenty for most people on this car.

Got a newb question and figured this thread was the best place to ask it...what motor oil are you SC guys running? Will be getting a ct stg 2 here pretty soon. Just looking for a couple opinions on oil weight. One SC veteran recommends 10w30, just wanted to get some opinions. Is 10w30 ran by everybody?
I actually switched from 5w30 to 10w30 last LOF.
I did a brief search, but couldn't come up with to much.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Guys, i am looking at hopefully having just under 300WHP with the supercharger set up i have. When does a guy need to start looking at aftercoolers? I would prefer to not pony up for one. I know i know.

I made 305whp & 207wtq on a ct stage 2 setup w/ invidia rh, q300 and hybrid racing CAI. It's probably not a consistent 305, which is why I ordered Vits a/c along with bigger tb etc. So to answer your question, yes you could make 300 without an a/c.
