Welcome to the site, as far as performance I would check out www.milzymotorsports.com some people will argue the meaning of SC/T, it can be sport compact touring, if you have an sc supercharged touring.

Well I know its a cheap way to supercharge. But right now I cant afforded to spend 4,000 or more on one. So I figured for now it'll make do.

Well I know its not the real deal, but thatís what they call it, plus its made a pretty noticeable difference. Believe you, me when I can afforded the real thing its coming out. Till than, call me the HAIR DRYER MAN.

O I wanted to ask what a good way to lower a GAGT is, and how low would you guys Recommend going. To be able to still use it as a daily driver.

One more note, im sure I will start something with this, and I hope I do. I see an electric sc being the real thing as much as the belt driven ones is. The one I got puts out 5 psi of boost, the belt driven one Im looking at puts out between 6 - 8 psi. Belt driven ones create more resistance on the engine. So that means that some of the power it is make, it stealing just to run. Where as the eclectic one isnít taking any power from the engine, so every bit hp its making you get the full effect of. So even though I didnít go out and pay $4,000 for it, I donít see why it cant bare the name of being a SC. So I hope you guys write back on this one, I would love to hear what you all have to say on the subject.

Well I live in alaska so in truth, i get 3 - 4 months of sun, the rest is dark. But i would realy like to hear why its not a SC, other than ppl saying thats its not. I want reasons.

Throw it on a dyno and see what kind of numbers your put up with the electric supercharger off and then with it on. The numbers never lie.

Do a search for "electric supercharger" here and you'll find out quickly why it doesn't work

Well, you're out of luck, first mod should be a new car.

I like my car, so I ll do everything I can to it. To make it be everything I think it can be. And hopefully more.

yes, because we were oblivious. I think back and wish I had never spent $10,000 in mods on the cars(oo and 04 GAGTs, 04 only had SLP and wheels).

No vet supports the electric supercharger. There have been tests done that show they do absolutely nothing. 5 psi of boost?? no way.

I know, I ve come to see that. But like I said, when I can afford to dump it i will. But for now, I have gone through all the work of putting it in, so now it shall stay there.
