      i ran 7e's on my turbo setup from 6psi all the way to 15psi without problems. might be worth trying 6e's though since you will be staying on low boost and wont see peak until redline with the charger

      Autolite [yes I did say Autolite] AR-3923 or AR-3922 work well. They are a single electrode plug and have a colder heat range good for forced induction use and do not foul or suffer spark blow out easily. I have used them on turbo VR6's and ABA's and they worked well in my old supercharged Jetta GLX. They are also easy to find at most parts houses.

      Okay here's another question.... I have a 98 gti. AAA block. I have the brackets about to go on... supercharger bracket is a bit odd fitting. Here's a pic can anyone tell me the.brand it is?
      That top bolt hole doesn't line up with anything. Its actually in the way. Hits the top of the head and valve cover making the whole bracket sit on an angle leaning foward. Here's an attempted pic of that...
      See the gap towards the back? Problem one. Now problem two... the idler sits flush against the alternator. But there's still a half inch gap for the bolt holes...
      I could stack a ton of washers but it just seems like its the.wrong figment all together.
      Thanks in advance

      I'm looking to be building a supercharged car this spring.
      I've got a rough idea of what I'm looking to get, but I don't know much when it comes to pulleys and such (dual idler etc).

      With that said, there's a V1 for sale a couple hours from my place for $1000.
      It came off a F150.

      Should that bolt right up with the right bracket & pulleys?

      Make sure it is CCW rotation.

      1. The top bolt hole is for if you drill into your head to gain extra support so not to rip the treads out of the tensioner position.

      2. There should be some aluminum stand offs and longer bolts for the idler. ~.460 thickness

      The kit pictured is a copy of the of AMS, not made by AMS, as the cuts look more plasma cut rather than laser cut, so the quality is less than par. Top bolt hole has to be drilled into the head and tapped for threads [optional use, but not required]. I may have a set of spacers for the alternator bracket. You would rather use one spacer than a stack of washers for best stabiltiy and minimum flex.

      I agree on the washer comment. I basically need the spacers and that's about it. Im gonna get rid of the top hole and get the verdict support for the rear. That should be way more than enough support.

      you should be able to get aluminum spacers from home depot / lowes easily enough. either that or phil or noah could make you some, I'm sure.

      Phil, what happened to that guy interested in my pulley? I never heard from him...
