    You seem to be a bit confused. And you seem to have confused a few of us. How can you say that you are an "N/T w/turbo" and ALSO have a supercharger? Which is it? Cause I am SURE that you are not twincharged.

    Most all aftermarket FPR's are "inline" at some point. The stock FPR on a 95 Eclipse GS, is located on the end of the fuel rail.

    If you want to get an aftermarket FPR, then you have to disable the stock FPR on the fuel rail.

    And ASFAIK, there are NO superchargers for our 420A equipped cars, although turbochargers are SUPER.

    Not true, i HAVE seen some super custom supercharger jobs on a 420A motor in the past. Not just the neon reverse 420A but also the eclipse N/A 420A. Thats why im asking.

    Its not outside the realm of posibility he has supercharged his 420A. But if he has, i want to see some pictures and i have ALOT of other questions to ask.

    And most of all, IS IT PRACTICAL? In both terms of money and time/parts..........

    There's no N/T w/ SC option, so maybe he just chose the closest thing.

    Ah thats right, i rember seeing this before.....to damn bad it costs as much as a stage 2 HRC kit....and in the long run it tops out at 15psi...

    If something like this was cheaper i might consiter it, but as it is its just to damn expensive to warent buying this over a stage 1 HRC kit and make the same levels of power for 1/2 the cost...

    To my knowledge there is only one other person who has supercharged their 420a. He lives in Tampa, FL. He was the first to sc the 420a and I have spoken with him many times as i once thought of doing this before buying parts for my custom turbo kit. He ran into alot of problems in the beggining as it is difficult to tune as no one knows everything about it yet. He ran into the problem of overboost then he got forged rods & pistons. He hit 389whp on 15psi if i'm not mistaken.

    The kit also needs alot of custom work, you will need to bash in the firewall & the left strut tower to make it fit as it is pretty big...Have you already purchased the sc kit?

    Nice. I stand corrected.

    I still think that turbo is the better way to get more hp, especially with the Megasquirt fuel and spark controller that is now available.

    Since the fellow who started this misbegotten thread seems GOA, we're closing this before it gets too deep.
