      When goin into FI to my mind to have a wideband is a must. I don't know why, but people after getting into FI installs boost gauge as a first one. I even know people who put turbo on their engine, fitted boost gauges, because there's a boost, but didn't use standalone management or at least remapped OEM ECU to ensure they have correct AFRs. Ofcourse when you don't have a wideband you don't see AFR. When you don't see it does not hurt

      What wideband controller do you have? My o2 sensor just plugs into the controller, and then to the gauge. With all correct powers/grounds, there was no cutting or splicing of wires on the o2 sensor?

      Has anyone bought just a charger unit and then pieced together their own kit? Through my research, it seems that V-1's are the best chargers for power, but I can't find them anywhere in a kit anymore. Only things I'm seeing are the V-9 kit at ECS which makes less power than V-1's/V-3's and is $4400.

      I came across this site selling different V-1's/V-3's. They are super pricey though ($3k)... http://www.superchargersonline.com/i...cPath=507_1318

      Wondering if it'd be about the same price as ECS if I pieced together a kit with these V-1/V-3 chargers...or if I'll have better luck getting lucky on the classifieds here for a used kit - haven't seen any for sale in months.

      Your best bet is to find a used kit or partial kit and work from there. Make sure the charger is ccw rotation. When I first supercharged my car I found an old ams v1 kit for 2k that needed injectors and a chip. Rebuilding a charger is fairly simple also if you find a blown one

      I put together my own kit for my 98. I have a v1, cog belt drive with ac delete (I have 2 other cars with ac), sick short runner intake, charger brackets, green top injectors and united software. all is going into a 3.0L 12v
      2700 charger (new)
      2200 manifold and belt set up (new)
      600 sc brackets
      chip 250 I think
      injectors I had
      that's where im at not counting the engine

      peetah it will be hard finding a v1 kit, I tried. I know larry in vegas is/was selling his kit. I pieced mine together to what exactly I wanted.
      good luck with your build

      I bought my v2 off a mustang forum. Got it for $600. Bought an AMS bracket from the classifieds with an idler setup for $150, already had c2 30# software an injectors. Then went megasquirt and used 1st gen eagle talon injectors. 540cc low impedance that I got 8 for $60.
      All started with buying a blown up v9 setup and using only the injectors after a bunch of wasted money and time.

      Auxiliary Drive Cogs by Exit 9 Performance for VF STG 2/3 and E9 kits. Coged pulleys can be used with both STG 1/2 and STG 3/4 brackets Upgrade paths are nice. DYNO and PSI readings to follow

      STG1/2 VF kit upgrade (V9 head units)



      VF STG 3/4 Cog Upgrade ( V1/2/3/7 head units )

      Installed my 2.8" pulley today on the v1. Seeing 8psi, just gotta get rid of that belt slip! I'm seriously pleased. This car screams. It's no super car, but it puts a 370z to shame. Don't ask me how I know.

      Key word, belt slip. Haha. Really need to upgrade some fueling parts before I fix the belt slip.

      What's the part number for the walbro 255 fuel pump most folks use?

      I was seeing 11psi on a v1 with the 2.87" pulley and dual idlers


      UPDATE: so anyone following along will know im shooting to be the fastest supercharged 2.8l 12v without nitrous, the record is currently said to be held by the ivans at 11.6 . Yesterday i managed to pull an 11.98 at 115 (first pass of the day) on my new setup which is as follows

      2.8l vr6
      Arp rod bolts
      Arp head studs
      9:1 spacer
      Drc 268 cams
      2.9l clone manifold gasket matched
      Ported exhaust manifolds
      3" exhaust
      Vortech v1 supercharger with 2.59 pulley
      C2 chip with 42lb injectors
      23" slicks

      Its like driving a whole new car compared to last year, after talking to some knowledgeable people im going to try raising the limiter to 7800 so i can trap in 3rd since im only using a few 100rpm in 4th on the 23s , if that doesnt do the trick i will look into swapping final drives

      Videos and pics! I'm curious to see what power it makes now too. It was pretty good before.
