With a foot of snow arriving this week I thought about upgrades.

Pulled this off Charles site to compare what I had accomplished.

DD did similar back I think 07-08 and wanted to bring forward for others.

Kinda like Damons Rim Annual:)

I know this is 4-5 yrs old technically but thought I would give it a shot.

I wasn't aware there was a 73mm TB. I think you meant 70mm TB and 73mm MAF. Either way, the easiest way to make more power on your motor is probably by opening up the inlet side of the supercharger.

At a minimum you need a 76mm MAF and 75mm TB with a 3" intake pipe. An 87mm MAF and 85mm TB with a 3.5" intake pipe would be even better.

Tks for the correction.

I always seem to put the cart before the horse.

Post was just put up there for conversation.

Intake on the next revision will be 95's and 4".
Plenum just has to be welded up.

Planned changes will handle the MPX.

Intact manifold has been designed to handle both blowers.

If I plate it for the TVS then I'm into a bigger commitment that I'm not convinced I have the time for right now.

What was at the ShootOut was quick and dirty cause I thought it would run without a tune.

Motor had 200 miles on it when I went south and was just glad to get it home in one piece.
