    Same and working the same place as well. Weather has been pretty good besides the semi cold nights. On the fence about going s/c now. Reasons being is i miss being boosted, trying to get a new place and being turbo and issues that come along with it especially with the trans doesn't sound ideal. I figure s/c now if I can find a good priced used kit and get a new place. Maybe turbo in the future after im settled down. There are 3 good deals in the market right now. 2 being s/c and 1 is t/c but I don't have enough so I'll just have to save more.

    Whatever deal comes up between ct-e or jrsc and if the deal is worth it. KW is awesome for the power it makes but if I ever wanna go even faster that isn't possible with KW.

    Thats true. aparently on the 9th gens you can go down to a smaller pullie to make more power because our engines dont rev as high . But the ct-e is mor customizable along with the jrsc i have this site that clame they sell the jrsc but im not sire if its legit or what but heres the site http://gprauto.mybisi.com/product/jackson-racing-supercharger-kit-07-civic-si#

    Oh really? that's pretty cool. Yeah that's why I picked those 2 for my options. Thanks for the site but looking into used deals considering they are more bang for ur buck and cheaper too. There is a guy I know around here selling his entire setup for $3900 but I won't have enough for awhile.
