You mean a turbo sticker?

Shrimpy, I didn't plan on supercharging anytime soon, I was just curious and wanted to learn a bit more about the prep work needed.

Thanks everyone for the explanations. I understand everything much better now. Maybe one day when I set a horsepower goal for this car, I'll supercharge it. For now, it'll all be suspension work since I'll only be racing autocross. I don't want to make the car faster, I want to make the driver faster.

I'm guessing you'd be going for high boost so yea, new fuel injectors and a new fuel pump should cut it.

give us a heads up if you DO supercharge it
