    It is not Zapata. Last I heard from the owner, he was having electrical problems.

    that should not take long if they know what they are doing...but it sure look like a strong bracket that can hold the weight of the supercharger and all the vibration

    THAT LOOKS AWESOME... Reminds me of my procharger on my 95 gsr. Except that was self contained which was pretty cool. I sold that too cheap never knew I might be able to use it again some day for something like this.

    TTT,

    Will this ever be able as a kit? 20psi and no lag would be good for racers!
