Don't do it!
Not to worry...At the rate the supercharger seems to be coming along the 40 might actually be out of the garage and back on the road before then . It is just cruel to let it sit in the garage though

That's total crap! If you can't tune an engine for optimum performance why buy performance enhancing parts? I suspect there will be a few older ones for sale from those who want the "upgraded" ones. Hold out or turbo charge!

Someone pee in your Wheaties this morning UB

40 runs fine (just need to dink with the carb a little) it is more of this little issue I have in wanting it to be "perfect" - oh and it is only a 2-seater right now which doesn't work well with a family of 4

Supercharger would be nice, but honestly other than when towing the popup I'm fine. Having some extra power would be great but I'll live. Turbo charging would be but @ $9K installed (Slee's turbo) that's almost what I paid for the LX so that isn't happening. If I had more skillz than wishes life would be good but that ain't me, yet

I could be wrong, but I think UB might have quoted the wrong post and was talking about not being able to adjust the pulley size, which I know he's done quite extensively

Man, I hate companies that try to lock down everything so the end user can't make changes. From the iPhone to a TLC supercharger, it's just the wrong way to treat your customers. Verizon actually disable features on the phones they get from manufacturers.

In that case, in the famous words of Gilda Radner...."Nevermind"
