      Going to be picking up a V1 charger in the next week or so. Installing on my 96 VR with 165k on it. Plan is to run it around for the summer and do a full tear down next winter (kind of going backwards but I bought a house this winter). Wanted to hear opinions on running the 16# (claims are 12-14PSI) pulley that the charger is coming with on a cammed motor (no other engine work done) with 440 Green tops and a UM tune. The motor runs like a champ still even with the miles on it. I am also on a stock MK3 head gasket. Should I step down in pulleys and only push 8-10 PSI? This isnt my first trip to the FI rodeo but I have not done so with a VR. Any info is appreciated.

      Also Plan on adding an inline Walbro pump on a toggle to use when im boosting.

      Haven't he checked in in a while.

      Vr is not charged yet. I was missing a couple fittings, got those. Then now all I need it my afr gauge.

      The biggest kicker that I haven't been able to wrap my head around is the guy whom was going to install it for me now won't get back to me the past 2 times I've tried to go to his shop/house he has blown me off. I hate to piss him off by paying another shop to do it because he's been really helpful in the past and is a guy I find as for the most part a true person and honest guy.

      So do I take it to another shop where I can't learn the ins and outs of the charger and pay double the price, or do I try him again. or should I just have my neighbor whom is a great mechanic help me- has built a class 8 prerunner, multiple samdrails, complete turbo systems for his 700hp Cummins diesel and the list goes on. He says with the instructions it should be a weekend job and pretty straight forward?

      I drove it around the block before it started getting up to temp and my lower radiator hose popped off. I'd say it's official now.
