Mine was 1976 Corvette Firemist Red, with gold pearl.

Mostly stock, C4, some suspension upgrades, Appliance wheels, and, of course (for its day) a ridiculous stereo.

By the time I sold it:
Clifford headers
into 2.25 single pipe in
1 3/4 dual out muffler, into GT tips (sounded like a straight six jags!)
lowered front A-arm (shelby specs)
air shocks in rear w/ individual fill lines.
Addco rear sway bar. Nylon bushings front and rear.
Battery in trunk.
AM/FM/CB Pioneer radio.
Cruise control
THIS IS THE BEST>>>>>> a led digital odometer/mpg gauge

don't know where your getting your information from but 24's & def 19's are not sufficient for a supercharger. you will be at 100% duty cycle. you would want 30's at a minimum and even at that 36's would be giving you a little room to add more boost. 42's would give you plenty to grow with.

check out an injector chart, just my .02

good luck

I'd take his advice and go with at least 36s. And larger pump. I had an 89 gt stock block/crank/rods/pistons/heads/ intake. I only had a cam in it with 1 3/4 headers. With only 4 lbs of boost I was at 340 hp at the wheels and I ran out of injector. ( they were 24s) this was dyno tuned on a mustang dyno and it was a paxton centrifugal. Also the tuner said once you hit about 500 horse the fuel lines must be upgraded from the stock( which i think is "5/16) to 3/8.

Should be able to tune it for mileage. Just make sure it's a good tuner who totally understands you want a lean cruise with no boost until you really get into it. Gota be careful especially with a stock bottom end. There was a civic on here that tuned 230 horse to the wheels but was specifically tuned for mileage at cruise. I think he was getting like close to 60mpg.

With the vortech it's only going to push around 280 with an fmu but I plan on using a tune which should put it around 330ish area and yes I am upgrading the pump to a 255lph...if I happen to need bigger injectors Ill get them but I got the 24s for $40 so I went ahead and installed them...can't go wrong with that.
