    Probably one of these looking for something that feels ok not to heavy though.

    Decided to get all my Pro-charger pipes powdered the same as my wheels yesterday.

    That looks great. When I go procharger, I was thinking about base coat / clear coating the piping magnetic gray but would likely go with ceramic coating.

    Anyone know what the dowel pin is for that you drill the crank and insert before installing the new pulley for the procharger? I feel like that may be the biggest issue I will have when I go to install this thing. Also the bit it has says the tape off the amount needed on the bit I assume it is the size of the pin that you will be installing needs to be drilled.

    Is it optional on the 3.7 kit? I remember helping install a Procharger on a LSx car and if I remember correctly that procedure was to pin the harmonic balancer to the crank (not just bolted - basically safety) and it was optional below certain HP / boost levels.

    I don't know, I believe you have to but I wasn't sure why since the pulley bolts right on.

    This is so badass but the price of all this is seriously eye-watering lol. More power to you brother, I admire you for stepping out and making the FI leap.

    Thanks dude I will continue to update this thread from this name, since a Moderator had a power complex on me when I asked a simple question and banned my other account I was forced to make a new name to continue my build for everyone.

    Will be doing the install this Thursday, Anyone have a picture on where the tensioner pulley needs to sit. They sent it to me in the wrong spot and the pictures aren't doing any justice in the instructions.

    I have been extremely busy going out of town competing so there will be some lapse.

    For those wondering about clutch/flywheel when upgrading to FI.... When I had the procharger installed I went with the McLeod RST and their lightened steel flywheel after RAMs setup did not work out. Both Mcleod options work for the v6 with little R&D. I believe I may be the first to do this. No issues so far and I love em. Definitely recommended Shaftmasters aluminum DS, G-force half shafts, and upgrading your gears/diff. Completely different animal now.

    And when you say R&D what exactly was needed to match this clutch up to the V6? At this point I am ready to jump to the ACT.

    I'm assuming he added the needed spacer (.75") that allows you to run the S550 GT flywheel (or any aftermarket flywheel meant for the GT). The spacer goes under the throwout bearing. RAM makes it. They also make a 'kit' with a throwout bearing that already has the spacer installed.

    Spec sells a replacement flywheel that has a dual bolt pattern so both V6 and GT clutches can be used.

    Appreciate it. Thanks. New to the clutch game. Anybody just go the cheap route and upgrade to the GT flywheel since what seems to fail on our manuals is the flywheel?

    I used the Mcleod lightened steel flywheel which is for the GT. And yes, the r&d was for a spacer. Mcleod recommends using their flywheel and I'm completely fine with that. I wouldnt use anything RAM anymore. Just me. But their clutch did not work properly. I got my money back. They were great about that, but I am stuck with their billet flywheel as it was not defected. McLeod is much better than any of the v6 only clutch companies anyway.

    Yup use the .75 Ram Spacer (@$80) OEM GT flywheel (@$160) and clutch for your choice.
