I'm in your similar boat. Looking for 400 whp with some track use but mostly mountain trips and the occasional spirited drive. I have decided on the GTM SC. I have heard great things about the reliability and driveability of the Rotrex s/c. I'm going to go this route probably next winter. It's not going to be cheap though

If you are happy with 320-340 then I would go the bolt-on tune route. That's a much more budget friendly route.

Sounds good, I have this Friday off, where do you guys meet at?

Yeah, I might go with bolt ons unless something more affordable comes out. Good luck with the S/C and can't wait to hear about it. I think if after bolt ons if I'm still not happy i will go FI. But the GTM S/C is very tempting!

i think you shouldn't waste your money on bolt on's if you're planning on going FI at a later time. GTM is the way to go but you're welcome to check out my car also.


yeah, it's right in front of party city and ross. i'll let you know tomorrow or friday if we're going or not.

Have a GTM TT stage II, Stillen HFC and CBE. Z1 Install and tuning. 508whp at 8.5 psi. Highly recommended. Stock clutch (to be changed in the spring). Go to georgia, bring cash and car. See John at Z1. Give him car and money. Z+TT=permanent smile. :-)

just go TT, you won't regret it. Once you have the car fully bolted... you'll get used it... then you'll want more. You'll go twin turbo, so you'll sell the parts on the forum at half of what you paid for and then lose more money.

SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GO FORCED INDUCTION... you won't regret it. My car makes me smile everytime I push the ignition on.
