Default Forced Induction OR Naturally Aspirated.

I was just wondering what the drivers on here would like for their DD Vet. I know that each has its own pros & cons. As for my self I like N/A so that is how I modded my car. Thanks for your input.

FI was the easy choice for me. Can never have enough HP and there is no way to get what I want without a power adder.

Both are great, but if I was to mod our 09 is would be with Andy's Blower Kit as it is tame and great idle, better mileage for a daily driver than a cammed Vette and plent of power when I need it

Like to race street bikes? >> Big Power with crazy top end torque - Twin Turbo.
Like to stick to your seat off the line? >> Big power with lots of low end torque - Supercharger.
Very Street-able / Reliable >> Just a "little" extra power - N/A

I like FI and that is why I just had a TVS2300 blower put on.

I like to get up and go sometimes.

I went the Vortech S/C route because the car runs just like stock until I want to spin it up and then it turns into a different beast. Jeykll/Hyde is the way I like to describe it.

Ive been in a 1700 RWHP Ford GT that drives like stock, with ice cold A/C. It's all in the tune!

I just broke the tie! N/A is the way I went. 504 RWHP. I did it because I absolutely love the sound a cam makes, and with the headers, it is that much sweeter.

Default I just broke the tie AGAIN!

FI all the way - with a custom cam = good gas milage, great low end sound/torque and wicked power on demand!
