Yeah, I know 'budget' and 'boosted' don't really fit in the same sentence together haha. I'll definitely evaluate my options before I pull the trigger on anything, but, as always, the input of experienced folks like yourself is always appreciated.

I'm not sure what you started with, but I was eyeballing the assemble-yourself MS3 kits, which puts you $400 in the hole plus ancillary costs. I imagine it can be easy to make up the difference between that and an Econoseal, but it's still around half the price to start out with, so it was my forerunner based on not-so-extensive research lol

If you can assemble it yourself, and know everything is spot on, you can save some money there. The kit you are probably looking at will do batch fire injection, and dizzy ignition. To step up to full sequential, you will need the 3x board.

Oh shoot, somehow I'd thought MS3 had native 8cyl sequential capabilities.

So really, I'm looking at $520 + time to assemble vs $775 for VEMS from Marc. You're right, I think VEMS is gonna be the way to go

I am running V8 Vems from Mark in my coupe. I had him install it and tune the car. Can't say enough good things about it.

Haha thanks man! I'm going into this with the assumption that the engine is a goner, and it'll be a big plus if it just so happens to survive!

I went ahead and ordered a PnP VEMS unit for the ABH from Marc (Thanks Greg!)

Still kinda ironing out the details for feasibility, but my leading choice of hardware right now is a Lysholm LYS 1600AX off a C32 AMG. It's a twin-screw with an integrated W/A intercooler and an electromagnetic clutch to disengage. For my purposes, it'll be a little underutilized, but it's just about perfect in terms of cost/dimensions/availability. Target is 400ish crank hp @ 7-8psi, which it is more than capable of on a 4.2

Hahaha I'm open to persuasion. I just wanna do something I haven't seen done. I really like the instant, torquey response of the V8, but I just want a little more :) I figured a positive displacement supercharger would be a good fit.

My limiting factors are the compression ratio (could be dropped, I suppose) and the transmission (don't really wanna deal with an 01E swap)

I have been quite impressed with the 016 that has survived 2 years in the 200 on the hx35. It can do it! Actually I'm not totally certain of that hah.
