Um 3.73s and a Procharger....? Maybe not the best idea.

I just love that wrap man, if it looks as good close up as in the pictures, very unique. I'd release the kraken on the 5.0 badges though, they'd stand out nice against the copper.

Love it, keep posting progress. I'm sure PC will get you what you need asap.

I never did a build thread when I put the blower on my '12. Shoulda, it turned out to be a lot more work than expected.

Didn't do one for the nitrous install on my current car because I finished so fast, lol.

No street tire in the world is going to have a chance with that setup. It'll drive around fine, though, fwiw.

Yeah I kinda figured I'd have to run drag radials to even have a chance in hell of getting traction...any recommendations?

Hoosier bias drag slicks for the track, 28X10" for 3.73.

Drag radials will help a bit on the road but are murder on the driveline on a manual car at the track. Having used both, I can confirm this for sure.

So is it best to have 2 dedicated sets? Lol I knew when I bought this car I'd regret opting for the 3.73's...

For the track, manual means two dedicated sets, not the 3.73. You'll regret getting anything other than a bias slick with the MT. Auto can go DR without issues.

Why not 3.73 and a pro charger?

On the street it would be spin city. If your car already has 3.73's I wouldn't worry about. But to step up to them from a lesser gear wouldn't be necessary.

Just trust me on the 3.73 and centri, you ain't putting nothing down unless you are creeping around like the gas pedal like a cat balancing on a fence. Centris are dogs off the bottom, compared to PD and the 3.73s are still way too much gear for the available traction.
