You're confusing yourself. To run a GT catback you need either

1.) American Muscle adapter tube for the mid pipe

2.) V6 specific mid pipe

That's it.

Around 10-15 rwhp per PSI. The V2 head unit, if memory serves me right, boost 7-9PSI.

Do not mix N2O and an supercharger unless you're building a race car. Keep in mind, you will already need to find a damn good tuner to tune for the S/C, take that risk and multiply it by 2 or 3 when...

I didn't mean that it wouldn't work, I mean it's not the best option right out of the box being that it's an open differential. Would you really want 300 hp being shot to one tire?

As stated, put the pump back on unless you have the tuner to fix the smog parameters, but even then the gains are near non existent, better and safer to leave it on.
