Hey everyone, I have an 07 Civic SI and I want to make it faster. At first I wanted to put in a turbo, but now I really want to supercharge it, probably Comptech STG 2. But I have been thinking about it lately and I am not sure what to do. I was wondering if I should just supercharge the SI and get close to 286 HP or just wait, save the money & buy a 350Z in a couple of years which already has at least 286 HP plus the Torque to back it up.

Any opinions will be appreciated, Thanks

Well the Stage 2 will supposily make almost 300 HP with mods, but thats pretty much it. But I have been looking at 350Z's Lately and how much potential they have. I just don't know what to expect from a Supercharged SI.

A kid I know at school has a Supercharged Z, and it is a beast.

That is true, how do you like yours? For now since its only a stage 1, does it make up for our cars not having that much torque?

I agree, and I definantly appreciate custom rides more than stock. Only problem I have is deciding on which s/c to go with. Comptech Stage2 or Redshift Stage 2or3

Well, I def. know I will be supercharging over a turbo. Well wouldn't having over 300 HP give us bad traction issues or not really?

I think most of us are in the same situation. I will probably go with Comptech STG 2 but I think we all would have been happier if out cars came with alittle more power from the factory.

And I was going to go with AJP from the start, but I really don't want to have the problems that come with a Turbo right now, and I kept hearing stories from others that kind of swayed my decision.

Well i have traction issues with the comptech stage one (although its still controllable). I can smoke tires in second gear all the way to redline. If your worried about traction in a F/I FWD car then i would suggest staying N/A

Theres a reason why SRT-4 owners get rid of their cars...:eek:hnoes:

Turbos require you to be on top of your car all the time.
