doesn't really matter . So long as you set the waning limits either side . You should test the nozzle flow manually though ... just so you know what you have .

Pling!

Went through the whole thread, very good work! Looks like maybe the most cost efficient might be to get the SC, then build the rest yourself? Am I right?

I have a 6 port manual, does it look like your setup could keep up to 9000RPM with current pulleys? Or does the air coming from SC/intercooler get too hot? Maybe belt slippage will be an issue as well?

it would be easier to dig a big pit, cash out your life savings, start a big bonfire in the bottom of the pit, and then just keep throwing handfuls of cash in to keep the fire going ...

In all honesty, its fking hard work, lots of blood sweat and tears, not to mention alot of cash. In the end you get something you call your own, Power wise its pretty average , reliability you are scared most of the time.

For the money spent alone on the supercharger kit you can get a much better car.

This is downright the brutal and honest truth.

But if you want to pursue it, the belt starts slipping at 8.3 - 8.5k rpm with current pulley setup. But you are way above the optimal efficiency of the SC. You may need to go one size larger to the new C ranges. But good luck finding room.
