That’s a huge amount considering that the stock model came with about 290 HP. The significant power increase was achieved with a supercharger installed under the hood. Furthermore, with the forced induction element now in play, the owner also had to change the car’s stock exhaust system with something…a little bigger.
The guys from Supersprint were more than glad to step in and install a custom complete system that completely changed the sound of this family hauler. Everything from the manifolds to the cats, crosspipes and even the rear mufflers was changed, making room for a new “voice”.
