It is a complicated idea. Love the possible boost, but here is the deal. The original engine has higher compression than a turbo or supercharger engine. Essentially you blow your machine apart, pretty quickly in some cases.

There are ways to adjust your compression, and you can limit boost, and failure to do so kills your ride. Now, if there is a kit that does what you want, these issues should be handled by the supplier. IF there are mods that address compression, detonation, and the like, you should be able to expect success.

Anyways that is where the issue lies.

Remove haze inside headlights 2003 buick century


Are you sure it is inside? I don't think the assemblies can be dismantled, since they are a sealed unit. I don't know of any that can be taken apart, so a problem on the inside of the lens would require replacement. But any store with an auto shelf or section stocks headlight lens polishing kits for cleaning the outside of the lens or assembly and bringing them back to new condition.

My 92 Buick Century lost rear taillights as well as interior dashboard lights. I've checked corresponding fuse to no avail! Any ideas on what could be the problem???


Double check fuse - replace fuse even if it looks good and if problem still exists I'd be looking at headlight switch.

1992 Buick Century misses at all speeds, will occasionally die while at idle, but starts immediately and runs well except for the misfires. New air filter and plugs installed. Thinking plug wires and fuel...


At this point, replacing the plug wires is a great idea, especially if they are worn or over due for replacement, Always start with the basics...then proceed with diagnostics with possible engine management causes.

2 electric fans from pc in intake tube.....


I don't think those fans will have enough air flow to gain any kind of power. Check on line to see what king of air volume those electric superchargers put out. I don't think it will be worth the effort.

Wanna know if i can put a tranny for basic 1995 riviera in my Supercharger


you will most probably need a beefed up tranny to take the power of the engine, I have just installed a 350 supercharged chevy motor in my sons car with a Turbo 350 transmission and a shift kit which I have been told by an auto trans mechanic may not take the power of that engine.
It is costing him $1500 australian to have it reconditioned so I hope it will survive the rides

If you want to do it yourself. Most auto parts stores and hardware stores have recharge kits. Purchase a kit with a gauge to prevent overfilling.
