    So whats up with the Pro-M maf? Did you buy a 3" blowthrough meter? That meter can be calibrated to 60# its what I use on that turbo car I just finished, had the best curve I have ever seen out of the box....

    I was told i could use the electronics from the PRO-M i bought,and i'm putting them in the flange i bought from a guy on corral.Then i'll weld the flange to the pipe comming from the IC to the TB.The PRO-M i bought isnt a blow threw itself,but from what i unnderstand once i put it in the pipe it will work?It's already calibrated for 60#'s.I'm hopefully buying the injectors this weekend!Then i need the header wrap and plugs.peace

    Yes i can if needed?But i can describe to you.The bolts that went to the water pump werent opened enough for the bolt head to go threw,so i opened them up and recounter sunk them.Then i just bought a bolt to run threw the hole to the alt and bolted it that way,instead of running it to the head like it was suppose to.Like i said though it looks to be kock eyed so it might not work cause the belt might get thrown off?If so i will pull it all off AGAIN and open the hole up bigger where it bolts to the alt and the head and then bolt it on.But yes after i get my daughter from volley ball practice i'll post'em.peace

    You run a AFR head right normally run Autolite 3924's? Try some NGK7173 commonly referred to as #8's, perfect heat range for a boosted car.

    Hate to bust your bubble but that will not cool very well, you need a lot more wrap on the water pump pulley to use a reverse rotation pump. You could fab up a small bracket off the waterpump and add a small idler pulley to get more wrap.

    That's what they have it set-up for is a reverse pump. So I'm sure it works.....at least I hope so. I was thinking of the Moroso kit but it mounts too low and I'd have to use a standard pump AND a grooved pulley. I think I'll do exactly like John has if it works for him.
