Based on what magnum said stage 2 and above would be best for safety

So what should you expect with IPF on a stock setup, 9-10 (this is what IPF told me and what seems to the case in Magnum's thread) or 6-7?
I'm still in the process of getting gauges and a leak tester but want to know what to expect

Depends on the heat and your mods. The more free flowing your engine is the less boost you will make, which is actually a good thing. The higher the temperature the less boost you will make since the air is less dense, so you are compressing less dense air in summer than in the winter.

Mine bounces around 10-12, depending on the weather with my 3.48" pulley.

Thanks for explaining that more looks like I can't run the smaller pulley without meth do you think using the pulley one size larger is gonna cause to much knock

Depends on how much knock you have right now with the stock pulley. I managed to get zero knock so I could have gone one smaller without meth probably.

Here is the mod list plan so far after I've had the kit for 500 miles.

1. AFR wideband 200$
2.3.48 pulley with belt 120$ or so
3. Meth kit 500$
4. LFX ported intake manifold 700$
5. IAT relocate 40$
6. 52 mm gauge housing 70$
7. Quad gauge pack 200?
8. Throttle controler 150$

Number 8,1,5 are happening very soon.

2000 or so dollars left for this engine build should be an amazing performing v6

3.48" is 2 steps smaller, I have 4 degrees of knock retard and a 14:1 AFR, I do NOT recommend doing that without a meth kit. 3.60" is 1 step smaller.

If you do use Methanol injection, this is what I use:

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sno-40008

It is pre-mixed, 49% Methanol, 51% water with red dye and fragrance for leaks. I HIGHLY recommend buying a transfer pump from O' Reilly or any other place and wearing gloves when transferring it from the bottle to the tank. Also wear goggles to protect your eyes. 100% methanol is a poison, can cause blindness, coma, or death. Diluted methanol is safer, but still handle it with extreme care, no need to take chances.

Methanol kit is still worth it, it provides high octane and IAT reduction. Just respect the stuff.

That does sound like it might be a fuse.

Damn man that sucks about your bcm. And a question to you guys running meth on this kit. I know it isn't required for a basic ipf supercharger install but aside from extra protection would their be any advantages or disadvantages for using meth with the stock pulley?

It will cool down your IAT temps letting your computer add more timing so it would defiantly be a good thing, it will also clean your carbon deposits that make the car lose power over time.

How many miles you have on your car ? Did they say why your bcm went out?

So it sounds like a meth kit even on a stok ipf kit would be nothing but beneficial, interesting!
