What spots?
One is the MAF slot and the other is probably for a blow off valve. Is that what you were asking?

Yeah the sensor I figured is the MAF but none of my plugs fit for it and the other big hole I figured was for a blow off valve which I'm not running so I'm probably going to get a new pipe

Probably for the Vortech Bypass valve. Why are you not running one?

Yeah but you still need one. Even if you are running 6 psi... If you don't have one and you let off the gas when the blower is making boost all that air is going to smack right into the throttle body blade that is going to be mostly closed. This, in turn, will spike the headunit and that is really REALLY not good for it.


Are you confusing a wastegate with a BOV/Bypass valve? You wouldn't need a wastegate for a centri supercharger unless you are doing the "torque improvement" mod.

A lot of foxes with a vortech I see don't run them but il plan on getting one and routing it up from summit racing or somewhere but that MAF sensor in the pipe does fit any of the fittings for the sensor plug and you're suppose to run the Mass air meter into the fender where it sucks in air correct?

If you have a blow through style MAF you put it inline with the coldside. If you have a regular one it should be before the headunit.

And you absolutely want to run a bypass valve on a manual. Some autos won't have them, the theory is that with an auto the throttle body blade doesn't smack shut during shifts like it will with a stick if you don't powershift with your foot on the floor so you won't spike the headunit. I'd still run one as a safety precaution in that case. Its not like its a $$$ component in the grand scheme of things with a FI setup.

Cool thanks Scotty! So as far as that MAF spot in the pipe just put a block off plate on that?

Because il still have the MAF sensor and air meter with the system but just on the pipe going into the fender so it's before the supercharger

I'm running a vortech v3 Sci kit (4-6 psi) and they do not include a diverter or blow off valve with that particular kit. Even the supercharger to intake tube does not have a provision to hook one up. They say that its not enough boost to shock the blower, but it's a good idea to have one anyways. I ended up hooking up a cheap Bosch diverter valve with my kit.

*I'm also running 7 psi at redline now with a UPR Boostmaster pipe I installed.
