thanks for posting them!

at 3600 rpm the paxton shoots up quickly when the roush has already "kicked in"
But I think you mentioned it.... at 3600 rpm the paxton has about 332hp when the roush has around 314hp.
It's crazy that you have 300whp at 3k rpm with the Paxton....solid power. Too bad the roush sheet starts at 3400rpm

The Roush deceived my butt dyno. I would have guessed the roush would have beat the paxton to at least 4K.

Dont get me wrong, the Roush is still a geat SC, expecially for a 1.6L like it is.
But I was Maxed out at 8 psi, where as the Paxton can go way beyound that for future upgrades.

I looked on the back of the diff and it said 3.31. wouldn't that be even slower than stock gears in lower gears?

I feel like I redline in 1st very very quickly, like around 35 mph....I should check sometime.

the car is already crazy fast in 1st and 2nd gears... dont see a reason to upgrade

I assume you are an automatic? Because I think that is what the auto's come with is 3.31, I would suspect it has been changed if it is that fun in first and second, but as you said, dont mess with what works

Nope i'm 5 speed with a hurst short throw. I do know the car was wrecked in the rear/side, so maybe it had a new axle put on..previous owner drag raced it because it had no exhaust, 285 rear, and a blower, so potentially could be upgraded gears.
I just know 3rd doesnt feel nearly as strong as 2nd. No spinning in 3rd.

Well I finallygot to take the car to the track yesterday. and the numbers are not great, but they are much better than the roush supercharger did.
it ran an 8.15 ( 1/8 mile ) 90 mph 1.90 60 ft
this is with the sotck gear, stock clutch and nitto tires. The nittos didn't hook as well as I hoped. I could only leave at about 2500rpm. at 3500 rpm it just blew the tires away, and I had to do a long burnout to get them to hookat all.

anyway I am happy with it for a starting point.

nice 60 ft...
any updates, forged internals? I also forgot to ask if you were running full 10 psi. I'm only running 5 but still have 10 lb pulley
