    The intercooler for a supercharger goes between the supercharger and the top of the motor. There's a shop (ZZ Performance) kinda close to me that sells and installs intercoolers for my car. Just not sure if that's the first big mod I should do. They also do tunes. Once the intercooler is installed, smaller pulleys can be used on the supercharger to increase boost PSI.

    Is the EVO your daily driver, or a toy? My GTP is my daily driver..

    Sooooo, decided to part ways with my setup. Haven't used it nearly as much as I thought I would and could use the money elsewhere (namely on my upcoming turbo kit) Will be parting out or selling as a package once I have time to pull everything and take pictures!

    Without trying to hijack this thread... If you want to upgrade your GTP you should come to Grand Rapids.. ZZ performance is a stones throw away from me and they build performance 3800 engine systems like you wouldn't believe. The only limit is your pocket book.. I have seen some of their work and they have produced the fastest GTP's in existence... (Assuming you are talking Grand Prix GTP)

    Actually, I mentioned ZZPerformance a few posts up. I go to Grand Rapids once or twice a year, and I've thought about getting some mods done ever since I bought this car. Yes, it's a Grand Prix GTP. I just want to choose mods that aren't going to kill my car. I'm at 120,000 miles, and I'm on transmission # 2. My thoughts are a PCM / tune, intercooler, and a smaller pulley on the supercharger. But I'd like to keep my costs under $1000 (for now), so I probably can't get all that done. The car is already quick, so it's really just my e-peen that needs it to go faster.

    I don't know if you're into tuning or performance mods, but I've spent the last year trying to figure out why my long-term fuel-trims were always -15 to -25. Finally yesterday I found a bad ground wire on the MAF sensor. Taped it up as a temporary fix, and my trims are right around zero now. Insanity.
