Ok my NW is ordered (102MMSC) specifically for the supercharger from DynoSteve!

Can't wait!

Finally got the missing piece from David today -- now its a 'wild' road-race setup!











NW 102, RPM 5" are on the way also.

While I was at it, I picked up a couple of spacers for the 102 -- 1 from ICT, one from Weapon-X -- BIG difference in prices (ICT is $25, Weapon-X is $100) so I'll see which one is the real deal -- I'll post my evaluation once I get the Weapon-X -- the ICT is pretty nice for sure!

NW 102MM SC Version!

102 SC NW came in! Very pretty:



The ICT spacer is nice, fits the area, is ported for the 102, and works with the my ported snout -- this should give me a 'Venturi' affect as it is 102 to 90 to Ported Snout inside the blower -- we'll see but this will give the blade the clearance it needs to open. Will need longer bolts too. — ordered from amazon — https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1





I'll need to adjust the ETC in the tune for the 102MM in order for it to idle and run -- got the formula so I should be able to do that -- after that, its having Ryan or Dave adjust the tune accordingly...

Can't wait for the 5" CAI!

Spoke with Ryan, MAF adjustment is going to be the big change for the 5". Once everything is on, I’ll hopefully get it tuned on Friday ‘remote style’ ;o)...

I dremeled out a stock bowtie, used gutter guard from Lowes, then epoxied the gutter guard in.

After that, I opened up the bow tie area in the upper grill and siliconed in the bowtie:

I also made air dams to force the air where I wanted it:

All of that helps!

So the Weapon-X spacer came in and let me just say, I'm not impressed. This is what they had on their site:



This is what I got (no gaskets, no bolts):











For $75 less (and free shipping) I got this:



Already asked to send it back... Reputable company too... must have been a slip up but still, if no bolts/gaskets, not gonna spend more for that...

Nick Williams 102 MM SC with Spacer!

OK NW 102 with spacer is on! I need M6 x 1.0 X 60MM -- Ace Hardware had them so with the spacer, some vacuum grease, bolted it up (89 in lbs)!











Opens with no binding, room from the pulley smoother transition! (Yes, I cleaned the extra grease ;o)

OK, the RPM 5" came in today! Got started and noticed a couple of things:

1) You will need to remove the splash shield in order to route the filter down low
2) The Roto-Fab Big Gulp had to go (glad I kept the ZL1 duct!)
3) The MAF is located in a 'unique' location and it required me to use the break-out for sure AND I need to extend the IAT Break-out wiring to account for the new MAF location
4) YOU WILL need to clean the tube!
5) Washer Bottle and pump will need to be relocated (already done!)
6) You'll need to adjust the filter on the tube in order to make sure the splash shield will fit properly
7) Orient the clamp on the filter so you can adjust it ;o)
8) If you're not using Meth right away get 2 1/8" MPT plugs -- Lowes has them.

Outside of that, went very smoothly:

ready to install:



Coupler:



Routed:









Next, I'll get a 'straight' vs '90°' fitting for the mini catch can, then do the wire up for the IAT2 connector, (I'll need to extend the WW pump wiring, but that can wait for now) then build an ABS Plastic bracket for the Mini Catch Can -- fun ahead!

I'll show the 'math' part after discussing with Ryan -- want to make sure I had the 'basics' understood -- just for my education...

Got an email from Weapon-x -- I can return for refund, but they were a bit disappointed with me posting the difference between products.

As I stated, they are a reputable company and probably made a mistake but, what was pictured on their site and what I received is not the same product. They could ask me what they should do to make their product better and I'd be happy to do so. I do comparisons and the results are the results -- like it or not.

Best of luck to them.

OK, moving on, I created a bracket for my Mishimoto Mini-Catch can. I'll paint it later but, this will suffice for the time being:









Much easier to clean now!

Soon the tune!
