      I agree with what the others have posted. As far as the cooling system, just be smart about it, and you wont have a problem. Make sure everything is in working order with the cooling system, including the fans. Maybe even install a mechanical coolant temp sensor and gauge (not an electronic dummy gauge like on the cluster) to monitor things more accurately.

      It's a modified engine, and as long as you treat it as such, you won't have a problem.

      Im running a 8psi s/c on my daily vr6. I got the head off and getting it rebuilt are autotech 262 cams worth buying while I got it apart? what hp gain? Should I go for lw lifters and hd springs?

      Poop. The motor is 8 to 1 compression. Im trying to run like 10 psi and stay around 300 hp. That's impossible with 8 to 1 id say

      You would need to get around 15psi in the motor for 8:1 compression. That motor will be great up top, but a turd down low.

      I ran a supercharged 3.0 liter here in Arizona's heat last summer daily and the temperature stayed lower than it did stock. I used a low temp fan switch to kick the fans on sooner and a low temp thermostat so that full coolant flow happen quicker. On the days it was over 110 degrees, the engine temp never went over 190 degrees.

      youre not gonna really gain anything unless the car is pulling timing. it will help fight heat soak though. to really take advantage of its benefits youll need to advance the timing and/or raise the boost and take out some fuel. :thumbu

      a DP with larger primaries, in the 2 1/4" range will do wonders, but I see no reason to build a header, unless it incorporates a DP....the stock cast manifold flows very well.

      if you are tuned for it, or if you are already pulling timing then it will help. if you are not going to get a tune for w/m, or are not already pulling timing then it will not help that much.

      Quarter inch tops. The end of the bolt pokes out the back of the alt bracket. But I run outta thread and the non threaded part starts bumping against the threaded thing on the alt.

      Bolt measures 4.75" that you have. Length needs to be 5.00". I will advise Phil and will take care of it.

      PS: Support bracket looks money!
