It will depend on how much boost I gain. Might gain 20 HP per psi. Should get a nice bump in torque though since I will have more boost down low. As long as I can control knock I should be good. 10% ethanol and meth injection is helping with that. When I was using 100% gas I was getting 10 degrees of knock, no way would I have done this.

Having to re-read the install instructions since the bracket install is critical. Been 11 months since I installed it originally.

See, I've been waiting on FI to see how other things pan out (and I have a manual so I'm a little sketched out by TT, even though that's what I ultimately want) but if you start making gains then there may yet be motivation for me to get an IPF kit.

I'm having to push the limits because of my wife's Mustang. Her car with just bolt-ons is trapping higher than stock SS Camaros here. I've made some good gains already, at the local track stock V6 will run 15's @ 93 mph. I'm at 13.3 @ 108. I need to get into the 115 range though, hoping with a smaller pulley and methanol cooling the supercharger it will get me there.

You are already a step ahead of my car since you have a LSD, I'm doing a one tire fire. I can't launch at any RPM higher than idle or I just spin.

If stock cars run 15s and you're at 13.3 it sounds like you would be running high 12s very soon... Do you have bad air there, or is the track just unforgiving?

This really has me thinking.

We are over 1000 ft above sea level, usually have a head wind, only 91 octane and low humidity. Track prep isn't the best either, they allow 4x4 trucks with mud tires to go through the water box and destroy the track.

The top fuel alcohol guys trap 264 here.

Ah, gotcha. That's really inconvenient - all of it.

108 seems good, and I thinking with a great launch wouldn't that trap speed get you to a very low 13 or high 12??

115 sounds a bit much...heck ZL1s only trap 115 to 117. But if you can do it, more power to ya lol

I should be able to get a high 12 right now, but I can't launch without spinning most of the time. Probably will be worse now that I have a transmission tune that is good.

She traps at 104 right now with bolt-ons, once she gets a ProCharger it will be interesting. Having driven her car the past few days really makes me want 3.91 gears, she has 3.73 gears and they feel great on a V6 car.

Got the supercharger installed and the belt on, here is where the tensioner is sitting right now:

Hard t o see the alignment marks, but may be a little on the loose side.

Probably about 2/3rd's the way through the tensioner, so if the belt stretches any it will be too slacked. Will probably pick up a new shorter belt tonight.

Very interested in how this turns out! Looking to go with meth and a smaller pulley in a few months also.

What an adventure, forgot to tighten up the clamp that goes into the intercooler, realized it before I got on it and had to turn back to fix it. Took it out again but never went over 6000 RPM's, at 5000 RPM's my PSI was at 6, AFR was around 12. Before my PSI at that point was 4 so I've gained 2 PSI. I had 0 knock retard, so no detonation was occurring.

I went and got a K061058 belt, going to install it tomorrow and do some more runs. The worse part about this is I'm hearing every little noise, but the computer is saying everything is ok.

Got bored and installed the new shorter belt. I used K061058 and it has the same tension as the stock belt with the stock pulley. You have to make sure it is in the groves exactly before putting it on the water pump pulley, it is very tight.

Went all out today and the car felt great. Max boost is about 11-12 psi, had to up my meth nozzles though, was running 12.5 after 6000 RPM's, switched to a bigger nozzle and now run 12.

The car moves through 1st and 2nd gear extremely fast now, 3rd gear hauls ass too. I'm getting just 1 degree of knock at 5000 RPM so I may have to meth turn on just a hair earlier.

Current setup is:
IPF Supercharger with 3.48" pulley
Snow Performance Stage 2 Meth controller, 1x 60 cc/min before supercharger (keeps it cool), 1x 225 cc/min 18" before IAT, 1x 175 cc/min 6" before IAT
IAT relocated to 4" before throttle body
Ported Intake Manifold
American Racing Headers 1-7/8" Headers
ARK DT-S 2.5" catback
Denso ITV24 Spark Plugs (2 steps colder) with a 0.030" gap

I will see how the week goes on testing, but seems good so far.
