not at all. I don't think she even hits boost ever. I know definately she has never gone WOT though. The SSEi goes in for a transmission flush today at the shop. Gotta get rid of that black fluid.

Flush or pan drop? I thought you didnt agree with flushes before? Well i hope its at GM then.

Anyway, if she never hits boost why in the world did she get the supercharger then? I am sure someone else couldve used every available pony.

Dan have you ever floored the SSEi when you drove it?

We got the supercharger because my dad wanted to have one. I've gone WOT with the SSEi plenty of times. Gotta love supercharger whine. Although her car seems really slugish to me. Not sure why, but it feels slow. *shrug. anyways, I was against flushes until I did a little reading. The shop we take our cars to does BG transmission services. Basically they unhook the cooling lines going to the transmission cooler, hook it to thier machine and first put a conditioner in the transmission to loosen any stuck-on particles, they drain that fluid, then they allow new fluid to enter the transmission under the transmissions OWN fluid pump (no outside pressure is used.) until all the old fluid is evacuated and the new fluid has replaced it. It seems like a pretty safe procedure from what I've read. Other places that do the service in other ways don't seem safe to me though.. The BG transmission service does though. It'* the same service that GM dealers use in their garage so I trust it. I get my Aurora done tomorrow too at the same shop.
