Found this in a random search.
A 94 Chevy Beretta with an Eaton M90 supercharger bolted onto its transverse engine.
That’s fucked-up as a football bat, and a turd just GLISTENING with polish!
WHY?? Just buy a GOOD car!
Back in college I drove a 5 speed Saturn Coupe. Being 19, I found some “performance” forums for some ideas.
I found guys who took a $16,000 saturn and put $15,000 worth of mods on it bragging about getting the same 1/4 mile times as stock Mustang GTs that cost about $25,000.
Never got that shit either. We see the same in the gun world with somebody hacking a $70 Mosin Nagant to shreds put on $100 worth of accessories and having something that is ALMOST as good as a NIB entry level Savage.
So fess up? Did you mod the Saturn? I was close to dropping the Turbo from a Mitsubishi Eclipse into my I-4 2X4 91 Ranger XLT shitbox.
Thankfully I didn’t try to polish that turd. Loved that truck, and it was reliable as all get-out, and I miss the Ranger line as a whole, but that truck was ANYTHING but a classy ride.
And they say we “Gun Nuts” have a thing for phallic replacements….
Well if you think a big blower out the hood of your Government Motors Shitbox will help issues with your penis…you should probably see a urologist.
It would be even better if it had a ram air intake hood.
I dunno, a functional scoop might clean up the lines on the car a little and make it look a bit better. Still that bigass blower coming out the hood is probably the most awesome thing on that shitbox. Still a blower showing the SIDE of its face looks dumb as shit.
Now if it was a primer grey scoop with shitty pop-rivets willy-nilly holding it on….now we’re talking!
That’s what I was envisioning, but it would be mounted over the blower, so it would have its air opening pointed off the port side. Four wheels of fail right there.
LOL! That’s SO messed up! I hadn’t even thought of that!
I like to think there was a guy who had a Beretta, a supercharger, a pair of vice-grips and way too much time on his hands.
Nothing wrong with that…
That sounds like something I would hear at the hackerspace.
A recent one was “well see we had this unused channel on the space security monitors and a spare chromecast lieing around so we figured we would play nyancat on a loop”
It’s the same precise idiocy that causes these window lickers to put NOS stickers all over their shitmobile, and which causes them to put those fucking annoying fartmufflers on their rides.
They’re so busy hanging bullshit off their rides, they don’t realize that they’re likely not even giving it any more power, just destroying the handling and gas mileage.
had a friend who put a 350 in a second gen RX7…with the air cleaner sticking out of the hood. it was goofy as hell but we always knew it was him driving around.
Because they CAN…or at least because they want to find out if they can (and make it work).
There are folks out there spending more money on parts than the platform to put bore/stroke kits, fuel injection, and even turbo’s on 150cc SCOOTERS fer crying out loud!
Why? Because they CAN!
Hey, they wanted to. All the reason a person needs.
Haha, too funny! I built that when I was 19. Funny that I found it here doing a random Google search. It’s even funnier reading that it makes some people upset. Mission accomplished! I had fun, did all the work myself, learned A TON. To clear up the confusion in other posts, putting a supercharger on your car does actually make it faster.
Sounds like you made it for all the right reasons! I bet the torque steer was AMAZING!
