      There is always some slip whether you can feel it or not. You would feel a huge difference with cogs. The second i went from a gates belt to a gatorback, slipping was even worse and im guessing because less contact patch on the pulley since it has cross cuts. Personally i would stay away from gatorback but that was just my experience. Are you still talking to mike about his pulleys?

      Well if i have any slip ive yet to see or hear it, psi at redline is consistent pull after pull and none of the pulley get hot to the touch just warm. I am still going forward with the cogs, mike sent me a custom 2.59" pulley he made (for a normal serp belt) that im going to put on and run down the track just for $hits and giggles haha

      You won't feel it or hear it really. You'll see belt dust around your pulleys/brackets

      the one and only VF stage IV kit (crank pulley driven) is for sale.

      PM me for info. FYI - this can be retrofitted to both V9's and V1/2s.

      Incorrect, VF was the past. other companies have AUX drive configurations and jackshaft configs w/ multiple different supercharger options. FWIW, I know about 5 active users with STG 3/4 kits form VF when they originally came out. and they are running V2 s trims and some upgraded to Si and V7 YSI superchargers with Cogs.

      How many of you guys are running lower compression?
      And what do you think the limit is on stock compression?
      I'm rebuilding right now and curious if i should throw some 9:1 pistons in while i'm inside already.
      Car was running 15psi with w/m running megasquirt. Had a lot of wiring/tuning issues when i first got the car running and I cracked 5 of 6 ringlands somehwere along the line. Finally got the tune straightened out and pulled for the rebuild.
      thanks
      If only I invested my money into something more practical then a VW....

      mine isn't cogged. it's an 8 rib belt driven direct from the crank. and FYI this is similar to other kits, but the ONLY one ever made from VF.

      Correct, 8 Rib, i was just saying that Cogs are also an option. The fact that VF Engineering made it, hopefully youve already engineered the VF out of VF engineering. Also, You cannot use that kit with a V9. This is why they redesigned the kits to use a V2 s trim. Reason for this, the Pulley diameter required to SAFELY be ran with the crank pulley is not large enough. This is why they blew up when first introduced. owners would get 1-3k miles and they would implode w/ the V9. Not a well designed kit out of the box. The V2 version wasnt bad, but you deff get belt slip, so youll be lucky to be peaking 11-12 PSI, nowhere near the promised 500 HP originally advertised

      Does anybody want to buy my VF Engineering Stage II kit for VR6?

      I have the kit with the distributor engine software.

      EVERYTHING is included. its just a matter of plug and play. Supercharger has been through the initial oil change.

      Ruf (http://www.ruf-kompressoren.com/wb/p...percharger.php) over in Germany is developing the ZR chargers and a few companies over in Europe are selling ZR chargers but not supporting the older style chargers that were sold in the u.s. probably because they were prone to premature failure. Bad news for those of us still with working ZR chargers. I opted to install cogged pulleys on mine which I believe extended its life significantly due to not being over tensioned

      I was able to crack 300whp on just a vortech v1 kit with supporting mods, i made 307whp, i also would not recommend a dry shot of nitrous ill be running a wet shot in the spring but the horror stories of cars going lean on dry shots steered me clear of that

      As for measuring belt length i used a piece of string and routed it around the pulleys , and then measured the string
