Default Compound charging stock STI?

I hope im posting in the right area. I have an STI. Im wondering how much it would cost to add a supercharger to the stock set up.

With the idea of upgrading to a larger turbo in the future.

If im not mistaken the other compound charged setup i read about was actually able to disengage the SC. Is this true?

I like the Idea of linear power and dont want to just go with a larger turbo.

Thanks

I believe that the power plant is not the only thing that makes the car appealing thats why.

I didnt by a "turbo car". I bought and powerful all wheel drive car that sticks like snot to the road and is your own personal disneyland when the sno drops. A car that is fun to drive and seats four.

If you can point me in the direction of a non-turbo car that does all that then I guess youve got a point.

Thanks for your help.

After everything is all said and done I would guess to compound your car it would car at least $10k.

for $10k you could be putting down 450+whp reliably with a bigger turbo, better block and buttloads of tuning time... a kind of power curve that'll make you **** your pants

do some reading on these boards, i can't see why you'd choose that kind of set up over a bigger turbo/stronger block for that kind of money... and that's without even touching the suspension

but if ya do, post it up and let us know how it goes. welcome to the boards

Exactly. And that is why compound charging is of interest. Supercharger for lowend boost when your huge turbo that doesn't spool until 5K isn't doing squat, and then the turbo takes over later.

Looks like F.A.T. is selling the kit to the public. I rode in his car with that setup on it. It pulls like crazy right from idle all the way to redline.

Perfect for off the line boost until the turbo can take over, cheap too

Plus you still need injectors, fuel pump, engine management, tuning, and install.

I am aware of the the kit availible. I dont need that much power now. I was wondering if you could just add an SC inline with the stock turbo. Perhaps I will just call forced air.

Thanks Guys

BC there's no point to adding a SC to a stock turbo it would just be power drain on the engine.

What do you want that you are not getting with stock? We can help you with a question like that.

if you just want a little more power, get a turbo-back, ECU reflash, and call it a day.
