    Gave up trying to make time to get the Supercharger installed. Decided to trailer the car down to [email protected] Racing to handle the install. Terry and the guys will be installing oil pump gears, crank sprocket along with BOSS 302 tensioners in the motor. Then they will get the Whipple & Fore Innovations Stage 4 fuel system with FC3 controller and ID 1000 injectors. Can't wait to see what kind of power Terry and his crew, along with Lund doing the tuning squeeze out of it!

    Thanks Ego!:)

    Jh...I have the 10 rib setup with the ATI 20% damper. Gonna run the 3.50 upper and see what she makes! I have a CobraJet intake and a C&R Racing Coolant reservoir on its way for extra clearance. Trying to get my hands on the new Whipple heat exchanger, Hoping the guys at Whipple come thru for me!

    Thanks SoCal...I can't wait!:headbang:

    Thanks White!:)

    Thanks TSJ!:)

    The clearance issue I am referring to is, between the Supercharger pulley and the coolant reservoir tank. When you run a 10 rib system, it gets REALLY tight to the stock coolant tank. I couldn't take it anymore, I have had my Whipple kit since the Black Friday deal that Lethal Performance had all the back in 2015!!! I've had this blower sitting here before I even owned the damn car! lol:headbonk:

    I'm starting to lose sleep now I'm so excited! lol



    Since you guys are going to be in the motor, do you happen to have the MMR Secondary Tensioner Bracket in stock???

    Is this going to be on a stock short block? With the boost you'll be running I doubt the engine will last long without a build.

    Yes, stock engine. I think it should make around 15-16lbs. It will be tuned on E85 Fuel. Plans to build a new sleeved short-block this winter.

    I have a basically stock engine as well plus timing and oil pump gears and the MMR secondary tensioner.
    I'm running a 6 rib on mine with 3.25 pulley on e85 and seeing about 14-15psi at redline at 7500rpm. I'm thinking with the 20% OD lower you'll see closer to 18-19psi with the 3.5" upper. With a 3.75 upper you'll be at a solid 15psi for sure.

    I've talked to a few people who have run this combination, and they said around 16lbs. I do have a 3.75 upper here as well. Maybe some of the guys who have run the combination I am trying trying to will chime in..

    This. ^^^^^^^

    I lost my motor with the 3.0 and standard lower 17-18psi pushing to 8k. If you want the motor to last till winter, I would stay in 15psi range. Granted there are several other variables but 15 seems to be the healthy max. I also planned on waiting until winter to do my build but......... that didn't happen. :doh:
