      Nice!

      We have the same supercharger




      It should sound like this from the front (hopefully your belt is a bit less squeaky):

      SC wise there is really not all that much work left. Run new hoses to the PS resivour, trim for the SC intake, run the maf extension, fit piping (more piping in route to complete the post IC charge piping), and drill the oil return amongst a few other small items. If I had all the parts, an extra set of hands and a full day, it would be done. But then there is all the other items to hit. Install my gauges, pull the intake (paint), install the ported exhaust manifolds and DP, have the car aligned (Since I need to drop the subframe), etc. In all honesty, I'm hoping to have the car put back together 100% and ready for around the 17th give or take. We'll see how it goes, this Friday and Saturday night I'll be putting in MAJOR work since my wife is working, so garage time will be plentiful , so I might get well ahead of schedule. The caveat to this is that not much got done last night nor will much get done tonight

      Lol, I started with just the block off plate and couldn't help myself . The splitter valve should sound pretty narly while still retaining the functionality of the DV. It's also nice that you can make it a 100% DV with the cap they provide with it, if you ever wanted to...

      Thanks!

      All I use is a power drill and the cheapo Harbor Freight aluminum polishing kit (Comes with a few buffs and two types of polishing rouge) You'd be surprised how easy it is to get a mirror like finish on machined aluminum

      Aluminum polishes SO much easier, especially when its machined...that charge pipe is going to take some serious elbow grease to get to the mirror polish

      orbital sander @ 400 grit down to bare metal .. smoothing down the welds .. then wetsand 600-800-1000-1500-2000-denim wheel - spiral wheel white rouge

      and why did you put the power steering in that location? why not hide it

      I did 220, 400, 800, 1000, & 1200, but by hand....a orbital sander would probably make short work of it. I put the PS res there for easy access (Checking and topping off). My bay isn't shaved or anything and really isnt even for show....I'm more of a function over form guy, but I try to put in extra effort when I do things which is why I'm even bothering polishing things.

      Plus I have a nice shiney PS Res J-Cap I wanted to show off

      theres no way its going to have that POP unless you hit it with a orbital sander .. unless you have monster forearms/hands/fingers

      i use this monster



      with these pads .. def not anything lower than 300 grit though otherwise it would just tear through the metal



      if you do a clean enough job with the 400 you can literally go straight to buffing afterwards with the right polish/wheel for a good shine but to get that mirror finish you should work your way up

      if you feel like giving up lemme know and i can take it over

      and whats the plan with the intake manifold? keeping it stock? i think it would look really sick colormatched with a glossy red with everything else in the bay polished

      Frankly, i dont think he should paint the intake manifold red. I think it would take away from that "tasteful" ness that he has going on with the polishing. Just my 2 cents.

      I'm goin crinkle black...which should make the charger, polished valve cover, jcaps, and the charge pipe pop in the bay.


      On another note, LOTS of work got done last night:

      -Did another round of polishing on the Post IC Charge pipe
      -Did another round of polishing on the SC
      -Trimmed Carrier to clear SC: Pre-IC charge pipe & Intake Pipe
      -Dropped Oil Pan & cleaned
      -Pulled Intake
      -Pulled the radiator fans (Since I have the notorious fan issue on the large drivers side one...)


      Lots in store for today...

      -Drill oil return
      -Re-Install Oil Pan
      -Attach Oil Feed Line
      -Pull Exhaust Manifolds & DP
      -Install my Polished VC
      -Finish center vent boost gauge install
      -Paint the Intake Manifold



      Pics from last night!:

      Well, my day got cut short but was still productive.

      -Figured out the best location to have the WB bung welded into my spare DP
      -Got the intake cleaned/degreased
      -Installed the Oil feed line
      -Drilled & Installed the oil return
      -Installed the pan
      -Started to get a game plan for my post IC charge piping





      I was looking for piping and found this set on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/250958051953...84.m1497.l2649). I figured the quality may be crap based on the price, but I figured I didn't have much to loose. You could spend what they were asking on just a few t-bolt clamps and couplers. Anyways, I'm seriously blown away with this kit for what it cost ($90 Shipped). If anyone is in need of some piping for a custom setup, I'd highly recommend this.

      Well, the exhaust manifolds are out, O2 sensors are out, and I'm just about ready to attempt the DP removal tonight or tomorrow night (Its hard finding time to work on the car during the week). There is now a glimer of light at the end of the tunnel
