Looks like a fun time, thanks for sharing the pics. You get any ribbing for being the only bonnie there?

The supercharger is disabled. If you look at the other picture you can see its walled off where the snout would be.

LOL no not at all. I know most of these guys from when I had my GTP. Also, since I run a decent time in the 1/4 and I had an intercooler housing in my trunk...I'd say they were all pretty cool.

I suspect they do it that way because it is the least amount of work and cost. By removing the supercharger snout and rotors and then blocking off the housing with a plate, the SC then becomes nothing more than a large plenum.

I imagine you could change the intake and all but again, more work and cost.
