    yea i was thinkin that too, it might get a little front end heavy and restrict some power, i just figured 200hp in a widebody hatch would be serious

    even if the j30 made more power (im not sure if it does) thats all you will get. there is NO aftermarket support for j series not worth it at all imo

    Comptech did make a supercharger and headers for it back in the day, so there was after-market for it at one point...I'm not sure what's available now though...
