Man... if that were a VDP I'd be on it like flies on poop.

They're really rare, though.

Did you ever get the upgraded pulley and all the hoses and ic pump and other stuff done? Mine will be needing those coolant hoses soon, I'd be willing to buy the parts off of you if you didn't use em.

In reply to Robbie :

 Did everything but the upper pulley and x pipe exhaust. Will be done when I get it here. 

When you buy the hoses do not get Üro brand. They're terrible. I got some stuff from jagbits, Terry, and amazon. You'll be removing a lot of stuff just to get to it and you'll end up wanting you replace it all or upgrade it, like me. The hose itself is $17, I somehow spent nearly $1000 lmao.

Its okay. I spend most of my car tinkering time on the 924 getting the tune right. And the last two weekends was spentv working on my Excursions interior.

I tried to drive it the other day and I learned it needed a fuel pump.

Needs some stuff:

Fuel pump

Passenger side tail light

Leaper 

And some paint correction

Yet to be able to get the cd player to work lol. 

Almost positive I'll still put it for sale before the summers over lol. 

Still a handsome big little sedan

I have a weakness for big, powerful sedans. This thing is cool.

Also fairly cheap to replace the spring loaded supercharger coupler in the snout with a solid one and change the supercharger oil. It would suck if your supercharger started rattling right before you try and sell it.

So I didnt replace it with a solid one and guess what? LoL 

I have a new replacement but I'm going to look for a solid one like previously advised.

How hard is it to take the snout off to replace that guy? I might need to do mine soon

Not hard at all. But I've removed the entire supercharger twice so far during my ownership PITA. The snout isnt much work though.

Apparently the weak link is the hose that runs beneath the blower.  Doesn't sound terrible to do but a fair amount of stuff has to come off.  Then a smaller puller for more boosty goodness.
