    Vortech + Lots of new goodies! ~56k WARNING!~

    A few weeks ago I started ordering parts, then last week they all showed up...here are the results :nice:

    Modular Powerhouse Vortech Mongoose kit with MPH 4" boost pipe:

    [​IMG]
    ^ Mongoose kit fully installed! It took Vortech a damn WEEK to get a replacement oil feed line to me (The one in the kit came cracked, tightened it up and it just fell apart!!!)... Oh and first they sent me the WRONG part!! :bs: They sent me the oil feed inlet nozzle for the supercharger...anyway, after a call to Vortech I ****ed them into sending me the CORRECT part overnight :nice:
    [​IMG]
    ^MPH boost pipe, pretty much self explanitory!
    [​IMG]
    ^This is how I mounted the IAT sensor - after the blower inbetween the blower and discharge tube!
    [​IMG]
    ^Here are the vacuum lines, Tee'd off for bypass valve - and later down the line for the boost gauge! :flag:

    Autometer C2 gauges and GaugeWorks dual instrument bezel pod:

    [​IMG]
    ^MAC white gauge faces, instrument bezel painted with Dark Charcoal interior paint from 50resto.com.
    [​IMG]
    ^All lit up! To make the light behind the instrument cluster darker blue I put #37 blue LED bulbs in - replacing the stock white bulbs. Eventually I figure I'll order a set of EL Glow gauge faces from Speedworks.com to match the C2 gauges
    [​IMG]
    ^Closeup of the A/F gauge - it's not "just a light show" as I have it hooked up to an Innovate LC-1 wideband controller.
    [​IMG]
    ^Using the supplied serial cable (and a serial to USB converter for my laptop) I hooked up the LC-1 to my lappy-top to monitor AND log my A/F (car is at idle)
    [​IMG]
    ^Vacuum/boost gauge showing -20 at idle! :crazy:

    Raptor Performance shift light:

    [​IMG]
    ^I mounted it in the drivers side center console air vent :)

    I would have more pictures but my camera ran outa battery; I needa snap a few of the oilpan tap for the oil-return-line, and how I mounted the LC-1 :D I still need to take it to the dyno and get my numbers (I'm hoping for 360hp/tq?) and while I'm there have the MM full length subs I ordered yesturday installed as well! Your comments are welcome, and any questions too!

    I love the shift light placement. Can you still use the AC?

    looks awesome man... was this a spur of the moment decision? I half expected that you got a new midpipe, or wheels or something... haha you're so nonchalant about it "oh hey, check out this supercharger i decided to get". yea im jealous

    Yeah totally! The Shift light is just BARELY in the actual vent, and there is a little cross bar which the grate thingy pivots on so basically you can't put it far enough in there for it NOT to work!

    V2 SQ! It's pretty damn quiet, I was really suprised! Very nice for a daily driver though :nice:

    Haha well it sort of was... I had it planned for November of last year, but unfortunatly my rear end was all jacked up and I had to either get it fixed ($600) or just go for the Cobra IRS and have some fun with that (about twice as much, but way more than twice as much fun :Word: ). Basically, the blower was ordered when I had saved up the money again - and has most surely been the best single purchase I've made for my car thus far :flag:

    Heh thanks! I'm not a mechanic by trade, though I've thought about doing a tech program after college so I would have a chance at a second career.
