Oh and It is hooked up with belts and pulleys and such:


Also notice we pocketed the bracket so save some weight and it looks much nicer too

Thanks

Well current issues with tuning aren't really issues, just more of a slow and steady approach to writing the software and fine tuning little bits and pieces of hardware. Like the brackets we changed slightly and the intake piping, little things come up as the project moves along.

Ive said it many times, But - Im not here to injure peoples cars or turn a Blower into a grenade in your engine bay, we are taking our time to properly test, fit, and tune this kit and are using real, top brand name parts in the kit that everyone knows and have been proven to work perfectly time and time again.

I know everyone wants it to be out right now, but trust me when i say that I want it done right and perfectly before anything is allowed to be purchased or put in someone else's car, other then my own.

Ill be able to put up better info when my vendor status refreshes tomorrow, but I will try and address questions ASAP as they come up

It's been that for weeks if not months now......

That being said, I'm all for being patient and seeing how this comes out. It sounds like he's doing his due diligence on the quality of the SC, and considering some recent ARMA results, I appreciate that.

Nice pics. Where does the belt then go? Is it separate belt/pulley setup or is that a longer stock belt?

Its all 1 belt, swapped to fit the S/C from the original serpentine belt.

There really isn't the space to run its own belt, it's a tight squeeze.

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

Hmm.... I'll see about applying for it - but CA is very strict with a forced induction kit, so no promises.

A try is all I ask, but even if not, my money is still being saved up for this and the race headers you've made a huge break thru though, is it possible for an intercooler and bov?

I feel bad for you California people. I think we should reduce funding to social programs like Welfare so we can figure a better way of dealing with the smog problem in California that doesn't restrict the fun factor of the cars you guys drive. I honestly feel your driving enjoyment is far more important than some kid getting formula because his daddy did not understand the concept of pulling out.

Now back to the show...

If you lived in cali you'd understand that its easy af to get welfare and not everyone uses it for what its ment for. By asking for it to be carb legal, the cops can't mess with us, they're hard as hell on us about modifying cars. In our socal area, the cops are worst and shit maybe they should cut some welfare down being as most of the people are junkies thAt apply for it anyway. I know people that are on welfare that dnt even need it and the smog problem won't be able to be solved with concepts of stopping welfare though, everyone knows its not gonna go anywhere anytime soon just like the smog laws. I feel that we should be like china and not nlet everyone have 10 kids....

I am familiar with the emissions laws of California, Houston (and Texas) is fighting very similar mandates by the EPA.

I'd much rather have what we have here, "smog laws" and no limits on kids, versus what they have there, no environmental regulation, and limits on kids...

Watch the top gear episode from this season of them in Beijing... Holy crap, the air there is a disgusting soup of smog.

That being said, I've never lived in, let alone been in smog in my life, but if that ever becomes normal, we'll need to make a ton of kids to make up for the respiratory illness that will come from it. Bleh!

I mean I'm glad that we have smog rules, but just cuz this company is smog approved and this one isn't, shouldn't have the right to jack their prices up by 300%.. that being said, companies like afe should have a smog approved certificate since a friend of mine passed with it on and had no problems. But either way, to make an item carb legal makes it noticed to the government. Its like having carb legal turbo kits, they're there but its hard to find and are rediculous on price for the performance you have. That's why I requested that gavin at least try to see what the carb board says to his SC kit. I've heard of vortech passing smog before so let's see were the rest of this goes?
