If you really want alot of power, I could try to convince my Unkle to sell his 1965 Shelby 427 Cobra. It will run 1/4 mile in 12.7 sec, and 0-60 in 4.5 Sec. Not bad for a 40 year old car dont ya thinK????? By the way im not BS'ing, he actaully has that car, but he lives in europe, so Ill have to pay him a visit sometime and take a test drive. hehe

Yes, SuperChargers decrease your MPG, but Turbochargers decrease it even more. If you truely want the most power, the most efficient forced induction power boosting charger system you can get is Twin Turbocharging, it comes at the high cost of gas, maintainance, and all the various parts you'll need with it, Wastegate regulator, ECU, you'll definately want atleast a Dual exhaust if not a quad. But if you truely want the most power from a charging system Twin turbo delivers more then a super, and a super delivers more then a single turbo. I will eventually have my Z24 Twin turbocharged, I can only hope it will all fit under the hood the way it is now. If you are going to turbo, or super, or twin turbo be sure to lower your engine compression, you might as well get all the power you can. =)
Oh and one more thing. The problem isn't that they don't make Turbochargers for our 3.1 V6's, they make turbochargers for just about any engine. The problem is a kit for turbocharging, there is a 3.1 V6 kit for single turbocharging, but to my knowledge there isn't one for a Twin turbocharging, meaning you have to make it yourself or go to a specialist and get them to make you the best setup they can. Which is what I'ma do cause I know if I do it myself I'll screw something up... Twin turbocharging doesn't sound like a mess around innovation, you need to do it right. I'm going to get a place called Corvette Specialties to do it up for me, it'll cost me an arm and a leg but I think it will be worth it. They love working on Chevy cars too =) So I know they'll do a good job, even though they like Corvettes the most (Obviously) they still like all top line Chevy cars, all Z's alike, Lumina Z34's, Camaro Z28's, Baretta Z26's, and Cavalier Z24's.
