Forced Induction questions

I'm trying to plan out a forced induction set-up that will be early spring and Into the summer. I have time to piece together something which is really what I would like to do. Or buying half of something used and piecing that together. Any ideas or tips for what I need to do or a list of what I would need to get?

What type of FI are you looking for? Supercharger, Turbo or Nitrous? Then we can narrow it down from there.

Well I was planning on doing a plate kit for nitros, but not sure if I want to go that route. doesn't matter turbo or supercharger, it would be somewhat of a budget build.

Somewhere between $2000-2500. I'm really looking to piece together something. I know it takes time and trust me I have plenty of time I just don't know where to start or look

2000-2500 looks like nitrous will be your friend. That will get you setup with a good basic kit

A bunch of stuff. Fuel system/ progressive controller/ window switch / upgraded lines/ fittings / nozzles / bigger bottle/ purge kit/ bottle warmer/ opener/ plus the original kit. And some other stuff. I spray a little more than most people do

Nice, how much exactly?

Yeah that's what I'm trying to do. Just don't know what I need or where to start.

You can also get the on3 turbo kit for your 3v for that budget

Pretty sweet deal.

Yeah that's what I figured, but I need at least a list of what I need, the major components for now.

If you go with the on3 kit its complete. For a centi blower. You will need the head unit
Intercooler
Piping
Injectors
Boost a pump

Those are the major things that were mentioned to you. Go check out vortechs website. They have a complete parts list on there. All the little fittings and crap that you will also need.

Just like midnight said. Depending on tje head unit you choose will determine if you need the oil lines. If you go with the v3 it is self contained

Depends on what power your going for. More than likely yes you will. Back when I had my 3v it was at 430 at the tires with the stock MAF. Anything over 450 I would say yes

Well I'm not trying to make world record power, I am still on stock internals. was thinking about 5-6 pounds of boost. I'm sure I could get away with it though for the time being once I did it.

Until I decide to forge the internals I will stay around there lol. I don't want to see a rod go through the block.

For a safe daily drive you will want some fuel upgrades too. Should be fine with just a bap if you arent making high numbers but just to be safe. And intercooled is also safer but more expensive but you should be good on 5-6lbs with a good tune.

Yes you can, I found this on corral a while back:

You will need to do the following to swap pulleys:

1. Loosen the belt
2. Remove the inlet tube to the supercharger
3. Remove the discharge tube to the supercharger
4. Remove the entire supercharger mounting bracket
5. Remove the pulley bolt on the supercharger with an impact gun
6. Remove the pulley with a 3 prong pulley puller
7. Keep track of the keyway key
8. Put keyway key into slot and position new pulley over shaft
9. Pound pulley onto shaft with a rubber mallet
10. Put bolt and washer into the shaft and tighten down with impact gun again.
11. Reassemble in reverse order


Here is a chart straight from Vortech, click on the certain one you want/have and boom!
