I since moved on to a different style SC (Pro Charger) and its a whole lot better, kind of like a funky belt driven turbo that sounds like a jet lol (gets annoying sometimes), im around 350hp now on the Stock B18C5 block and I really like it, My IAT's on my JRSC was also around 140 and with the SC I have now the IAT are like 80 to 120 depending on the weather, the other night I did a few pulls and temps just stayed around 85! it was a cold night but even with the LHT JRSC temps will rise after a few pulls. Its fun but peak psi comes around red line which kinda sucks but it almost feels like I have a strong V6 now. Boost tapers up as rpms rise Im still improving this setup as time goes on.. but who knows maybe ill go turbo too some day i wanna feel that punch you describe from the instant boost! lol, GL and car looks amazing!
Thanks bro! I considered getting a ProCharger before too but hot damn they wanted 5k for a complete kit. How many pounds are you pushing on your ProCharger? It's interesting that peak psi doesn't come as soon as you get on the throttle like a roots blower. I guess the snail needs time to spool up too!

LOL holly **** I didn't even notice you were the OP lol I know you!!! haha

Yea the engine has to rev up to spool the SC faster, I could use a much smaller pulley to create more boost in the lower rpm but it will limit the top end RPM the engine can rev too because I risk over revving the SC. I'm around 12 -14psi at redline I still haven't re tuned it last time I made 315 hp but was not a full tune Churches stopped because I had ECT issues, My new E tune from Pheriable.net on my new S300 V3 runs way!!! better. I checked a few data logs on a few pulls and I hit 9psi I believe at 7k rpm in 5th and I let off cause I hit around 120+mph and got scuurd! im sure its around 12 to 14psi, its pretty much a very similar setup as Byron and he made around 365 WHP on 14psi but he is Turbo charged now too. He likes his turbo setup more but I think its cause his SC broke fairly soon after install.. but he didn't like the peak boost only at redline that's why he likes his turbo kit better I believe. I have a few more mods including E85 I like to get on it before I retune it but im very satisfied on how it runs I don't want touch the tune it runs perfect for now


Any pics with the front bumper put back on?
