Re: The roots is goin on finally!!!!!

Nice brother. What kind of upper intake is that? Is it a kit? Also what supercharger did you choose to go with and would it clear a stock hood or no? Kenne Bell?

Re: The roots is goin on finally!!!!!

The heat issues aren't what everybody assumes. There are now guys running around, even in this heat, with an eaton and only making 110* IAT's, with H20/meth. It seems people are starting to work the bugs out of this thing. It'll be at Stang-Hi tomorrow, so it can get tuned wednesday while I'm out of town.

I was gonna drop it off today, but I lost the idler bolt that I made and had to get a new one this morning.

Re: The roots is goin on finally!!!!!

I wasn't referring to IAT's...I'm referring solely to the temps of the blower. As I have found out first hand, the KB's are a hot *** blower even without going into boost.

Re: The roots is goin on finally!!!!!

Oh ok, my bad. One of these days it might get a whipple, but it'll most likely have twins on it long before that.

Don't you have a 2.8 on yours?

Re: The roots is goin on finally!!!!!

For me it absolutely has to be one way or the other, I either want it so loud that everyone in town can hear it, or absolutely silent so nobody has a clue until i pop the hood.

Re: The roots is goin on finally!!!!!

Well, you should be spinning that 2.8 slow enough that no one should be able to hear it even with the hood popped.

Re: The roots is goin on finally!!!!!

nope, had to go to Houston for a project meeting. It's all the little things that I want to be done in a particular way that are taking me the most time, and most of that time is spent on the road hunting down connectors and adapters and stuff like that. I'm amazed at how difficult it is to find real vacuum hose in baton rouge.

Re: The roots is goin on finally!!!!!

What exactly is a "real vacuum hose"? I found one that was a solid, 3d object in about 5 minutes including drive time. Unless something in a box that says vacuum hose isn't really vacuum hose.

Re: The roots is goin on finally!!!!!

Due the obvious difference in fittings and connections, Advanced, PepBoys, and AutZone only have fuel line and stuff like that, the only "vacuum" hoses I can find are too small.

The issue is that the fuel line will collapse. It looks like I'm going to use it temporarily and then go back and make the system much cleaner and eliminate as many adapters jointed sections as I can.
