Underdrive pulleys can be used beacuse the turbo does not run off of a belt like a supercharger does; although mine will be coming off when i get the new motor built. The kit comes with a chip so youi dont need a timing adjuster. And you should be able to use any cat back system as the turbo kit comes with a y pipe already.

The pullies won't be a problem cause it's not belt driven!

A good catback is a must, the developement car did have Roush side exhaust when it made those initial numbers. There is some debate at how good these muffs really are, but most likely they are better than the stockers!

Dynomax Ultraflows seam to be the muffler of choice but having these at one time myself, I wasn't happy with the quality of it or the fit. Have Steeda/Borla cat-back now and not going to change for any reason. Magnaflow also would be good, any straight thru design.

As far as mufflers, don't get a chambered muffler like a Flowmaster... A straight through type of muffler.. The chambered muffler adds more restriction because of the way it's tuned..

Well there are only three cars out there now...

1st - don't know the status of Nathan currently
2nd - me, I wasn't setup safety wise at the end of the season - that is being addressed next week as are a few other things that are being done in the offseason.
3 - Pat, he doesn't have the correct tune yet - chip should be to him shortly as JMS recently finished it.

My guesstimate would be for my car (on drag radials) to be a mid/high 11sec car (having owned a 10sec car) but I am not setup for drag racing so I cannot be used as the sole indicator and suspension can mean a night/day difference.

Pulleys can be used, but aren't necessary. Same for the TA. For the price, they are not worth the power gains. I purchased a set of pulleys two weeks back - but for looks (BBK satin aluminum) not for power. Don't waste your money on pulleys, TA, throttle bodies, etc. If you want to get something, upgrade to the Lightning MAF with the kit.

Catback just get what has been recommended.... Dynomax Ultraflow, Magnaflow, or any other of that design (I don't have any experience with the Borla/Steeda setups).

Any other questions, feel free - be happy to answer.
