Looks pretty good. What were the problems? Any engine lights? Did you need a custom tune?

How does it sound? Any difference at WOT? Idle? When blipping the throttle?

We need more INFO!!! LOL

I was running the wrong tune and it was making it sluggish. No engine lights. Feels the same as a modded stock box. From what I have been told the 4" intake really comes alive when your running 15+ pounds of boost and close to the 600rwhp mark.

It is louder of course but I like the sound.

I will do a video when I get home so you can hear what it sounds like.

Which tune were you running to make it feel sluggish? Also. is there a particular angle the new MAF sensor needs to be at to keep the readings consistent?

Thanks,
Mark

I was using the pulley tune on a 8.5" crank. 8.5 and 9" rings don't need any tune adjustments. Jess mentioned something about the MAF position. I just matched the position on the stock airbox. Figured it was the simplest way.

Ok, cool...
So how is drivability and throttle repsonse now?
Also, you seem to have talked to Jesse a lot. What are the boost levels for the 8.5, 9.0, and 9.5 rings?

Thanks,
Mark

Drivability is good and comparable to the modded stock airbox. The biggest throttle response difference came from the ported TB.

From what I have gathered 8.5 gives you 2 pounds (11 total), 9 another 2 pounds (13 total) and 9.5 should put you at 15-16. A 8.5 crank and 2.55 blower puley gives you 15-16 as well.

I am running the 8.5 right now but plan to go to the 9.5 soon. Just trying to get my head around whether or not I need to move the idler pulley.

Jess did say he recommends replacing the blower pulley instead of just going big on the crank because it evens out the low and high. Going big on the crank is like a bike in a high gear but if your rolling it won't be a problem. This is what I understood Jess to be telling me but I could of misunderstood.

I highly recommend pulling the duct. Especially in the heat of the summer you'll just be sucking up straight engine heat.

I was interested in the 9.5 as well, but I thought the 15-16 lbs of boost was where the fuel controller was a problem. This problem has been discussed, but what is the solution? Anyone?

thanks.

why not just stick with a 9 in ring.....keep the warrantte. Doing the upper snout will void it for sure. 9 in is a good compromise 12-13 psi


And Jesse told me not to remove the brake duck.. he said you could extend the filter with another 4 inches of piping and get the filter down into the open area. you have to carefully move over the wires adnd such. but that area does see ambient air.


As far as the tune i had the handheld set for the 13 psi under max performance with 93 octane. and the air filter.

Swapping the crank will void your warranty as well. Too much overdrive is like riding a bike in a high gear so swapping the blower pulley helps that.

CadV, grats :)

i think changing the supercharger pulley would benifit you most! Well, it is geared/ratio in there! So, you would/should have better power curve changing the suppercharger pulley.

That's what Jess was telling me. Did you get yours put on yet? I have some shop time scheduled for Monday. If you get yours done before please let me know how it goes.
