Wife wants boost.......

Well after hearing a blown fox body drive by the wife looks at me and says after we pay the Honda off and the credit card I get to join the big boy club. I am thinking a 112 is plenty for a guy with a pretty much zero mods. Also is it preferred to have a speed shop install and dyno tune aka wongs or synergy? Granted I am a year out but still.

I would go to Wong for the tune if I were you. He could install it for you also if you wanted.

Nah by big boy I meant joining the FI GTO group.

Also there's a saying that goes there are only two kinds of 5.0 fox bodies, those you will smoke and that will smoke you.

Don't waste your money on a 112. If you're going to buy a Maggie, get the tvs. You won't regret the little bit of extra money you spend

The TVS is just better. I'd switch if I won the lottery.

The TVS is on the quite side, but getting a cogged rear makes noise.

If you wife loved the sound there is nothing like a PD blower driving by.

Dude, Jason if my wife would decide if she is gonna keep her job or not is what's killing me. Also, I need a 2nd gen parts car for my bird, 30 it years of wear and tear on a few of my parts.

Also, the wife says she hates having two car payments, which we are down to $1700 on the Honda. Lots of factors affecting my fun money plans........

you might also think about trading up for a different goat with mods you want. I got lucky and was able to do a virtually even swap on my 05 for GTO-SRI's ^^ GTO which had about $13K worth of mods in it, including a maggie 112. Oh and yes a 112 would be plenty. Gives you a solid 11 second car and one very capable of hitting mid 11s. Lots of good deals on them too. Also unless you have a very light foot a blown LS2 will pretty much kill your A4 tranny so plan on a tranny build.

Keep the women working and mod the goat. Slowly build parts for the bird till the goat is paid off. Then it's balls to the wall, well if you ever stop modding the goat.



Wait...that was my plan.
