    Done by Precision Sport.

    The G-Power SK-II setup runs 9PSI and costs $41k + labor. Dyno:

    Quick shot of the intake runners before the OEM intake manifolds are removed. These are actually pretty important for N/A, but not so much for forced induction.

    Intake manfold off

    Click here to enlarge

    Valve covers coming off to weld oil returns in place.

    Next up it was the other bracket for the other charger. . .it's not every day you have to refer to the "other" charger in a kit. We need some sort of area to make the bracket solid, other than solely relying on the vanos bolts to the head.

    Click here to enlarge

    A nice rigid piece of billet aluminum and we're set!

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Now a piece up top to tie it all together when the intake manifolds go back on

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    View from bottom:

    Now we can put the braces that will hold the intake manifolds in place, and solid.

    Click here to enlarge

    Brace that spans the throttle bodies to hold the manifolds up from collapsing on one another

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Don't forget to cap the OEM manifold's oil drains. . .these will no longer be used.

    Click here to enlarge

    Before the pretty orange stuff goes on, a quick trim of the body where the passenger side supercharger will sit. This will be painted in OEM Alpine White to look 100% factory when done.

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Relocate the battery line, to make space

    Click here to enlarge

    Before the new manifold go on, and get assembled, we'll need to snag the OEM throttle body couplers, and re-use them on the new hardware

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Intake manifold bottoms are on!

    Click here to enlarge

    With this out of the way, and the radiator back in the car, it's time to assemble the superchargers, clock them in the correct position, assemble the carbon airboxes to the superchargers, and mount the brackets on them.

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    put the orange tops on the intake manifolds.

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    The water reservoir for the charge cooling system sits in between the orange manifold tops. Here's something you'll rarely get to see off the car, and it is a REALLY nicely milled piece.

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Getting all the bolts around the manifolds snugged up and tight to ensure a seal.

    Click here to enlarge

    Now the top is done and the reservoir is in place

    Click here to enlarge

    Now we fit this adaptor piece with 2 o-rings from G-Power

    Click here to enlarge

    Pop the valve in place. . .

    Click here to enlarge

    Again, G-Power being over the top. this small stainless piece to keep the valve straight and in place on the manifold

    Click here to enlarge

    Delicate carbon airboxes taped up for installation

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Bracket for the radiator in place, just now waiting on some wiring to be completed and we will run the lines for the charge cooling system

    I agree, but for that kind of money 1 would hope it would at least be over 600whp.

    Really does not matter that it is twin SC for the numbers. A single Vortech unit will actually be more efficient.

    This is needlessly complex but definitely cool. Obviously, with something like ESS on the market for under 10k, no one will buy this.

    Definitely, this does not represent bang for the buck or a realistic option. Only someone who has no idea what they are doing would be buying this.

    Intercooling: Twin high capacity, aero and body-sonic optimized intercooler systems using a low temperature circuit consisting of a low temperature intercooler (air to water) in the carīs front and two return intercooler (boost to water) on top of the engine, right in front of the throttle valves, cooling liquid storage and separately controlled electrical pump.
    The S65 kits are air to air interestingly enough.

    Yes those prices cause humans to weep tears of sorrow. Not tears of joy.

    Yes, it can. It is also fairly easy to upgrade since it is basically a manual but just hydraulically actuated.

    what exactly do you mean in "upgrade" ? what other trans can you stick in there? Or do u mean internal upgrades as far as synchros or straight cut gears or something?

    I mean upgrade as in you are upgrading the clutch just like in a manual. Hence saying it is basically just like a regular manual.
