      Back in '99-'00, I ran a V5 with no issues. I even sold a kit or two with them in it, one of which was putting 308 hp to the wheels on a completely stock VR6. The V5 is virtually the same as a V2 but with an impeller tuned for use on 2.0-4.0 displacement engines. It has a more linear boost curve.

      Hmmmm...
      Yea basically I hear it's what the V9 should have been.
      I'm not looking to downgrade from the V1, but it's useful information nonetheless

      I imagine it'd be a bit easier to fit on the older chassis with space restrictions.

      Thanks for posting that pic. I went to eurospot on Saturday and got a 3.5" 90* 2 3.5-4" for my MAF. I thought I had a charge pipe but I have no clue what he gave me. So now I need a 2.75-3" and I should be good.

      Got the motor started yesterday so at least I know the new motor actually runs haha

      I just picked up a Z charger that's missing a pulley (the one on the charger itself). So if anyone has one or knows of one, please send them my way.

      Not the greatest photo but any constructive criticism on my intake? Where the "silver" is between the black, will it be ok to recirculate there?

      You have to recirculate after the MAF but before the blower.
      Doesn't matter where, just as long as it's somewhere between there

      When my car used to be set up like that, I had it recirculating right into the elbow.

      edit: you going to make it to spring fling?

      It's all 3", and no bends at all.
      I happened to have some straight stainless exhaust pipe, so I just ordered a bunch of angled silicone

      They are saying they'll get 20-25psi with a V1 on a 2.5 pulley.
      I've got no idea how they could manage to reach that amount of boost without encountering ****loads of slip.

      hey Man;

      Hate to be a killjoy;

      but you will see no where near 20-22psi. I just took my car back to stock from the setup you are trying to build. it was fun, but your better off saving the time as you will want more power:

      2.9 12V VR6
      forged pistons
      WRD stage 3 P/P Head
      Schrik 268 Cams
      Schrik VSR intake
      VM Cogged Pulley Setup
      60lb injectors
      Lugtronics
      most i saw was 17psi
      never did a dyno
      good luck, as i will be watching this build

      T-Trim with 2.5 = 16psi area.


      Been there done that. T-Trim is a very large heavy gear setup that will be very hard to transfer the power thru the belt. You hit a wall @ 14psi range with a 7 rib belt as it can no longer efficiently transfer the 70hp needed to operate the blower at anything more than that.

      Highest boost I have seen was cogged T-Trim was 17psi.

      A little tip for everyone.

      If you have no experience with superchargers and how they are assembled/dismantled. Do your self a favor and ask either myself or send it to a reputable re-builder.

      I have been seeing more chargers taken apart by their owners and lots of damage caused because of incorrect ways of taking them apart, it makes having them rebuilt cost much more money than usual due to the nature of how they are built.

      Also, do not remove the serial tag. There is a lot of information that can help when you need to rebuild/upgrade your supercharger.

      What are people doing with their evap canister? I put mine in my rain tray but realized I didn't have a vacuum line hooked up. Could that cause it to run crappy? I'm so close!! Hope to drive it this weekend!

      It's idles fine but if you rev it up sometime it dies when the rpms come down. If I put my finger over the vacuum on the side of the throttle body it dies. That's where the canister vacuum line comes from right?

      Yep, I use that line to control my divertor valve.
      How low/high does it idle?
