Told my wife I was installing an "air compressor" in my truck to justify spending. No mention of supercharger at all. LOL. What she don't know won't hurt her right?

I think I'm good. First, she'll never look under the hood. And, I'm the only income in the house. She can't afford a divorce. besides, its not like I'm not installing an air compressor. That is the basic operation of a charger.

For you guys looking for a trans, MPS is selling 4r70 that support 500hp for $899. They also have a 600hp model too. This was the route I was going to go if I'd kept my truck but I haven't heard any reviews on them. Has anyone else?

Just picked up an IC pump w/o the pigtail for $25 shipped. Can I affordably get the pigtail with plug?

That's freaking cheap! Wonder how they get away with that price. A similar lentech is over $1500.

Edit: the good model is almost $2500
