What's next for adding power now that my Paxton supercharger from Brenspeed is installed?

Shortly after the supercharger was in I installed off road H pipe.

Should I go for changing the pulley or something else?

How about some headers? You've increased the air going in so now you need to increas the air going out.

Or some new brakes to stop all that extra power you just installed.

Funy I've been thinking about the brakes:winks

So headers would open it up even more huh. There was quite the change after I installed the off road H pip and sounds really good:bigthumbsup

Here's my list in no particular order after just getting the SC done:

Steeda Sport Springs/HD strut mounts
Koni STR.T Shocks/Struts
UMI UCA/LCA/ Adj. PHB
Wider rims/Stickier Tires
BAER Brakes
Shaftmaster 1PC Alum DS w/ Loop
Spec Stage 2 clutch w/ Billet Steel FW
Edelbrock CAI for E-Force
LT Headers/Midpipe w/ high flow cats.
More dyno time
Detroit TrueTrack LSD
3.73's by either FRPP or Richmond Gear
Forged Shortblock (someday down the line when this engine lets go)
ARP head/flywheel bolts
2.75" SC pully (after going forged)

Who know's after that..
A good set of blower cams, valve job, and port/polish?

I'm not done with this car by a damn site!:rollgrin: Hell, I think I'm gonna put this wishlist in my sig!!

Save your coin for the built short block ! Cause you will probably need it.

So many mods so little time !

Have fun :)

You didn't say what engine you're running or whether you got an intercooler but anyway a methanol injection system is a pretty good mod for the price. The higher you can raise your effective octane the more timing you can run :bigthumbsup How much boost are you running?

I have the intercooled Paxton supercharger. Not sure of how much boost it's running?

Running the supercharger on a stock motor.

motion delete plates

Chandler from Brenspeed suggests I should next go for charge motion delete plates. Anyone have feedback on that upgrade?

We are pretty close in mods, and yes I did the CMCV deletes. I thought better throttle response and smoothed out that pesky little gremlin that was not opening before 3k. So it was a good upgrade especially for the Centri I thought anyway. Just remember that you will need a tune for this if you decide. The boy's at Brenspeed hooked me up on that one as well.

That's a good delima to be in. I would get an intake manifold. This would take care of the delete plates and help improve on the stoke design at the same time.
