I'm a relative novice on the track but I agree with all that -- even my wimpy 4.6 has plenty of power and would benefit from all those things before adding more engine.

If you really want to put a supercharger on a track car, Sqidd's manifold and intercooler are probably the way to go.

If you're just hitting on ramps and the occasional trip to the drag strip, you're good. Literally every system on a street car is inadequate for track use- we just make compromises because everybody can't trailer a full race car to do an HPDE.

2002 C5 Z51. MCS 2WNR TT2 coilovers, 18x11 Forgestars, 315's, yada yada. Built Z06 T56. Bolt ons. Coming soon to a CAM event near you.
