Yeah, I'm running 285's and they still don't look HUGE. Wish I would have gone with 305's. Oh well.

The nickel and diming portions of total blower cost have begun.

Good News...Rims and tires are here and mounted. I'll post pics later today. The SOS guage pod also arrived.
Hopefully you wont tip the scales at over 1k in repairs like i did. Talk about nickle and dime fixes. Or even worse, Bill's luck...

Looking forward to seeing the new wheel/tires pics.
Stories are good... Pictures are better. Worth at least a thousand words

I drove my car (running in perfect NA condition) to my mechanic friend's house/garage on the 3rd week of February.

2nd test drive.. April 15th is when the stock motor blew from not installing the BAP.

Sat in my brother-in-law's garage until June 3, the day I had it towed to Swanson Performance.

Picked it up from Swanson on Aug 14th. 500 miles later, it died again.

In RET's hand since Sept 10th.


To date, all parts and labor spent on this entire supercharger project is between $16,000 to $18,000.

Me =
:c onfused:

wow...

Good advice... don't look back. Don't look at receipts either...

Congrats Leo, they look great

even though the s197 makes a big tire look small, look how much smaller the 235 now looks on yours.

So how do they hook up and how do they compare to the BFGs ??

To expensive and to much hassle to swap. Plus I've never been 100% on them.

So you expected them to look crappy and didn't offer an opinion? Some friend you are.

I know, I know. Well the show starts at Ten but I'm sure Jed and Steve will be there earlier since they're showing. I plan on being there around 10ish. Not sure if and when Bill and Brian plan to show up. I know Ray and George are out for sure.

I know why.
