Im ready to buy a supercharger on Monday. SFLA's post indicated we can get a deal by purchasing more than one. If anyone is interested in picking one up let me know very soon. I've got the info to call on Monday and get prices.
Thanks

I notice Excessive was listed as one of the possible outlets. Stay away, far away. No experience with BB&T, has to be better than Excessive.

Hey Seamuse, did you get your Vortech yet? I am going to give Derek a buzz and order up one but before I did I thought I would check with you to see if you got your kit yet and if it came complete with no probs? Let me know if your satisfied with BB&T, thanks!

Yes, I purchased Monday from Derk (good guy).
They must get it from Vortech then it goes to their shop and will be shipped out to me.
3 weeks roughly, but the wait is fine because a can get a few more miles on the car (3200 so far)and im saving $700+. I would asume it comes w/ everything, but time will tell. Hope this helps I can't wait. Tri-Ax shiffter comes today, aluminum drive shaft and suspension next week (Wheeeeeee!)
L8r,
Seamus

quick ?? for your supercharged guys.
how much boost are you running and how much boost can you run safely on 91 octane. and which would be better for a racing application---aftercooler or intercooler---

i have a bid check coming this month and i just sold my other car so i am looking into a nice toy for the bullitt

I don't know about an intercooler but the kit i bought comes w/ the aftercooler.

According to Vortech you should be able to produce 10psi w/ it safely on 91octane.
All the info can be found on their site.
Don't know what others might have to say about it. I will post my results after everthing is said and done in a month.
Hope this helps.

Not sure on the boost ?, but as for safely running on 91 octane. It's all about the tune. I have the Vortech burned chip right now and notice some detonation in 2nd and 3rd gear from 4500 up occasionally on 91 octane at 6-7psi. On the dyno I had no detonation and ran an A/F ratio of 10:1 in that rpm range. Needless to say I need another chip to correct this or I will need new pistons/rods before I had originally planned(Xmas time). Listen carefully as these cars have fairly high compression ratios and are suceptable to breaking the ring lands. Just need to listen to your car.
