Twin screw is the best.

Turbo is next on my list.

I know of a turbo kit coming.

The issue with the style of power adder is how you use it.

Personally the Eaton style sc is a waste of time. Yes even if its spooned out or not I say avoid the mess and either step up to a twin screw or a turbo.

If you use a centrifugal sc it will work but not my personal choice.

I like the grab and throw of a twin screw.

To defend the CSC i will say the mustang has seen 8second 1/4 with a csc style unit.

Still I prefer the twin screw and turbo.

Make sure any kit you buy is a full kit made for your car.

Otherwise you will need alot of money to make it happen.

How about mounting one of those CMC'* in front of the M62/M90? Doable?

I wonder what something like one of those (1 of those cars) would go for if it was on a dealers lot? I'd sure like to have one of those, but I know I couldn't afford to build one, nor could I afford one already put together.
BAD-***!!!!

Everyone has there own idea of what they'ed like as far as power adders, but I favor the turbo because the power only comes on when you want it. In this there is not as much stress on the tranny. The CSC is cool,(been looking at the one ZZP sells), however its still a grind on the tranny. The PCM would have to be redone which is currently a problem in the 1996+ bonnies as there is no upgrade for them. This can be said for the turbo as well. There will be much work to be done in this area.

There is a solution for the 3.8l 1996 computer. Drop Dp a line and I will get you a price and all the options.

As for a Turbo, through Turbo Power systems Dp has a full Turbo kit already made for the 3.4 that will be out soon. The only step left is the computer being finalized with a few other add ons.

We will be doing the same with the Bonneville and Grand Prix but first we want to finish the 3.4 to show that this is not all "talk". lol

I have other projects coming but I am not financed as well as some other shops so progress will be slower.

I already have a ASEchips connection and will soon offer there product in both the US and Canada.

Yes the option for a totally custom unit is already coming and as we move forward it will be complete.

Any 3.8l chip is very doable.

I will know this coming week about the time line on the ASE and the custom obd2 reprogramming as well.
