Default Supercharged Northstar in a 97 GTP

Not sure if this has been posted or not, but since reading all the topics talking about the N* being a pain in the *** to swap then seeing this, i had to laugh. 586 HP at the wheels!

My favorite part of that page is how those guys are so nonchalant about how hard it was. "blah blah blah, we had to mount the procharger to the trans, but atleast it made running the air tubes easy". Geeeez, if that'* easy then i must be mechanically retarded.

To be honest, it is FAR TOO MUCH POWER for a front wheel drive car, but what the heck- why not!? I mean, who doesn't want to spin the tires going 50 in third?!
I DO!! I DO!!..

thats crazy. I cant believe how tight that fits in there. It think they should take somewhere and ask them to change the spark plugs on it! and video tape them when they pop the hood.
