      ok guys so i just bought this car and I don't really know a lot about it. I am also about to go on a 1600km road trip with the car. The guy I bought it from said I can ONLY run 94 octane fuel. Now I can't get 94 at every gas station on my road trip, actually most places I can only get 91 octane. Will It be safe to run 91 in the car or should I add a bottle of octane boost with every tank of fuel? The trip will be all highway miles at about 110km/h.

      This is what has been done to the car. I don't want to run into any problems on my drive as it will be at night and I won't have cell service for a good portion of the drive.

      ~ Vortech V9F Supercharger~ Stage 3 pulleys (8-10psi) ((Im only seeing 4-5 psi at WOT))~ Front mounted Intercooler with custom piping ~ Custom air intake ~ Siemens Deka 630cc injectors ~ United Motorsports stage 2 software (Supports up to 500whp) ~ Magnaflow 2.5" full exhaust (cat delete) Autometer cobalt boost gauge (colour matched) on "A pillar pod"~ AEM digital wide band Air/Fuel gauge in steering pod.


      Thanks for the help guys

      Plain Jane 630cc file from UM was written for 91. At 4-5 psi at max rpm you don't have to worry about anything. Assuming this is for a 24v?

      Yes this is on a 24v. So there is really no need to be running 94 in the car at all. That is perfect! I shouldn't see any problems running lean under boost then with 91?

      Cogs with a proper intake sound great

      The 550cc injectors max out high 400awhp. At 4-5psi on the 630's you have plenty of head room high 200awhp you're probably seeing no lean condition needs to be worried about. When you want to make consistent 8-9 psi with the kit you have hit me up.

      The secret is using an airflow straightener after the MAF before the supercharger. This honeycomb thing:

      I got them from Saxonpc.com. Costs like $15. I stacked two, 1" thick even though I think one would have worked.
      What size/cell size did you use? Saxonpc has a bunch of options. My SCharger hasn't arrived yet but this looks like it's worth taking a look before routing the intake across the car... Thanks

      I used this link:
      http://saxonpc.com/100mm-cells-for-100.html
      Then I selected 75mm. Get the one that matches the diameter of your MAF. In my case an OBD1 MAF is 75mm diameter. 75mm is essentially 3 inches (it's actually 2.952"). I used two and stacked them.
      I have no idea what cell ratio I got, probably the default of 4:1?

      I never seem to make any boost in 1st gear?
      Any one any ideas what could be causing this? Tune? Position of air filter? Belt slip?
      I dont believe its a boost leak as when it is boosting in higher gears it holds boost well.

      Does anyone know the size pulley included with the VF engineering stage 2 kit? My used blower arrived and it has a couple of cracks in the pulley and a bent rib. Unfortunately the number is also rubbed off the face.

      Been searching the web and I've come up with either 2.70" or 2.62"

      I want to replace it before I install.

      Thanks

      Finally rebuilt my blower. After many issues, I've got it all figured out.

      I bought a V9 G-trim from the classifieds here, knowing it needed a rebuild. When I opened it up, the ceramic bearings on the output shaft had failed, sending pieces through the gears, ruining them. I searched & searched for another set of straight-cut gears, but they don't seem to exist & Vortech won't sell any spare parts (I knew this already).

      So, I bought a set of helical gears from Supercharger Rebuilds, along with a full rebuild kit with the high-speed, steel bearings & a billet, g-trim impeller.

      Once the blower was apart, my machine shop & I realized that the new, helical gear was thicker, so it wouldn't press on the existing shaft:

      So after a lot of searching, back & forth with SR (not much help in this regard) & measuring, we decided the shaft needed to be OD ground to fit the new gear. this is what we ended up with:


      In case anyone needs to do this in the future .208" needs to be ground from the shaft.

      Once that was sorted, it all went together rather quickly:







      So it's a g-trim case with f-trim gears & a g-trim billet impeller.

      Just waiting on my cogs from E9 & then the car comes apart for the build!

      Cogs are in! I also have a Peloquin LSD coming, which will go great with the Clutch Masters FX400 & slave cylinder I also got from Vito at E9


      The slave cylinder looks pretty sweet:

      Question for you guys, I'm running an AFP with V9F stage 2 setup with SRI and metal supercharger outlet hose (the one in the VF kit was plastic). Has anyone relocated the IAT sensor from the MAF to the intake manifold on this kind of setup? One of my next steps is water/meth and I'd like a more accurate reading of intake temps.

      how often should you change the serpentine belt?

      Does anyone know where to buy stainless steel pipes for the SC v9 mk4 vr6 setup? I still have the plastic (black) ones and i have noticed tiny holes at the parting line of my pipes.

      I just made one for mine, I can make another one for you if you'd like.
