Good to know...thanks keck
Yeah I still have it. Runs great but I wouldn't call it finished. Still need to finish the aero, data logger HUD, lexan, etc
Builder has been going through a lot the last couple of years and he's a close friend
Sadly it's been in the same shape for 3 years now. I run it occasionally but need to hurry up and finish it to sell
200- I like the picture at the top of this page hahaha

Things are good Striker, sorry for the brief delay we've been quite busy building parts down here. I'm headed down to pick a coated unit up tomorrow and will have pic's in a day or so.

Quick question, would you guys prefer them in a powder coated finish or raw aluminum? I can supply either but we might get a better deal if we are coating multiple at the same time.

Yeah, I can understand a volume discount. Problem is, what color(s)?

If I like what I see, I'd most likely go for raw aluminum, so I have the option of going with wrinkle-black or a hammered paint finish. Glossy paint seems way out of place in an engine compartment, but that's probably just me.

Keck how are you liking that pulley kit? I also bought it and have not had any belt slip like I had before. I like the overall design and finish of the kit. Ive put around 2,500 miles on the car with it as well and have not seen any issues. The one piece crank is great as well although its a tight fit.

Ive made quite a few changes to my set up lately.

Me too. I bought this kit (linked here) awhile back from Bennett Built, and had the unit repaired/remanned for about $750 at Kenne Bell and just got it back pristine, along with 2-3 years' worth of their special supercharger oil.

However, I can't tell what pulley I got with this kit - 8, 10, or 11 PSI. I just want to run 8 PSI, because I'm way more interested in longevity of the engine and I also don't want to do a bunch of various myriad upgrades/mods (fuel system, etc.) to support high boost. Is anyone with a better eye or more knowledge than me able to divine which pulley I have from the info/photos on Bennet Built's page?

Also, if it's a higher boost pulley, can anyone point me in the direction of those 6-band pulleys I keep seeing referenced in recent posts in this thread which supposedly remedy the belt-slippage problems? I think I might just buy an 8 PSI model of one of those either way, just so I'm good to go on the first install of my new supercharger system and don't have to deal with pointless down-time later on for upgrading it after the fact.

Insight here is appreciated, I'm definitely a total noob to FI, so I'm treading carefully.
