There is some room in the back. People have been installing cog drives on the back without removing the maggie. So, maybe he'll be able to get to that port without having to take it off. Where is that pink mirror when you need it?...

Would that be considered a crankcase ventilation issue? Still, why would that cause smoke from the exhaust? I would think you would have smoke in the engine compartment as well?

I'm learning here guys. Don't beat me up.

I don't completely understand the PCV vacuum system either. but the intake side of the engine is supposed to be somewhat air tight... The MAF detects how much air is flowing in to the engine and then tells the computer how much fuel to add to the mixture...

If there is a hole that is letting in air that is undetected by the MAF I'm guessin it would lean out the mixture and run like Crapola...

Start fine then begin to run like crap... similar...

But I'm no expert... I'm just piecing that together from different things I've learned.....

I'm sure there's a better explanation....

I'm sure lots of folks have installed boost guages after the fact... maybe someone will chime in on difficulty..

The Whipple does not have a port so it has to be drilled out..

Keep close tabs on the coolant level in the Intercooler reservoir.


Again if I missed it, any check engine light?

Hopefully since they haven't been heard from, that is it they're riding around the block, as good an explanation as any.

the port is right under the passenger side pulley on the rear. It is not very visible because it is about an inch in length and sticks straight up from the supercharger. Reach back there and you will feel it. I will look for a picture of it.

Don't say fingers. There's a pulley there (resembles something round like a wheel). Heaven forbid he uses his finger to plug it and fire it up!
