      you rock. I need to get the 2nd DV installed before I start driving the coupe again. I plan to get the engine and charger back together by next month. Then see where I stand with taxes.

      Major body repair overhaul is in the future.

      Just a quick question, but what would be the difference between an OBD1 & OBD2 setup?
      I mean, aside from the chip and MAF, could you not just use an obd2 setup with the proper adjustments?

      Difference mainly would be the chip. Use a C2 OBD1 program, MAF housing and fab up some quick plumbing and you'll be all set

      Cool that's exactly what I wanted to know.
      What about the V1 and V2 chargers?

      As far as I can tell, the V2 is the better of the two, yet the only ones i really see people running are the V9s (since they're the cheapest and readily available) and V1s. The V2 is not only *cheaper* than the V1, but according to Vortechs site it produces the same CFM as the V1, but at lower pressure & rpm

      Are there bearing issues with them like the V9s? What gives?

      V1 is the strongest one if you get the T trim impeller. A V2 will not move the same CFM as a V1 unless you upgrade the impeller. And these two chargers are stronger than a V9 for sure. The big frame chargers are where it is. IF you wanted to use the V3 the oil system is self contained!! No need for oil supply and return lines, and the V3 mounts up to V1/V2 hardware.....

      Remarkable but true. I could not get hold of my usual NGK plugs and tried these out of desperation. Held up perfectly (would not run them as a standard but in the interim they are a decent substitute).

      We ran them a few years back on three different motors. One was an ABA Turbo that developed a high end miss, which ended up being the spark being blown out. The second use was on a ABA 16V drag car, which we carried over their use from the previous ABA experiance. Finally, we used them in a VR6 Turbo making over 600 hp to the wheels. I tend to keep a set on hand now as they work well, easily found and are cheap to buy.

      Need some advice on a motor. A buddy of mine has a 3.0 12v for sale... Eip big valve head. Stock crank. Stock rods. 9.0:1 comp pistons everything is brandnew. I hear guys saying not to run boost on bored motors because of cooling issues due to thinner cyl walls. I was looking to run my intercooled v2 setup on this motor. To buy? Or not to buy? Let me hear what you have to say!

      Yeah? Well that's a good sign. Is there a reason why people build motors with stock rods? Are vr6 rods strong?

      the bottom end is extremely strong, people routinely run 500+ whp with just a headspacer to lower compression. with only using a v2 and probably not going over 15psi the need for reduced compression is even debatable.
