Lexplay,i would be real keen to eyeball your setup when you get it done if you would like to show it off.Im at the stage of a turbo/supercharger showdown and i think the supercharger setup is winning.My vl is just begging for some boost and a nice vortech supercharger with the straight cut gears is just the mechanical howl to tuffn her up.
More awesomeness!

KC, I don't know if you're following the ITB thread here: http://www.lextreme.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9322 The last day or so we've been talking about the potential for reducing lag in a centrifugal setup by using ITB's and tweaking the supercharger bypass valve. Might be an interesting read for you, or anyone else running a centrifugal.
I'll check it out. Currently, the car stumbles a bit between shifts with heavy throttle. I think the compressor surge may be the cause. Without the IC, I had a lot less surge and I can't recall having any shifting issues at all.

I am still planning on keeping the current setup but trying it without the IC to see what happens.

Also, can you snap a few pics of the body mod you had to make for the FISH to fit?-Matt
Look at picture #15 on post 12. The area where the power distribution block is sitting is where it needs "modded". Like I said, it's a fairly significant amount of bashing that needs to be done.

Also, the fuse box needs to be MUCH furthur over than in that pic. The fuse box has been and still is one of my worst enemies though this whole thing.

kc are the wire's too short to move the fuse box any where or is thier just no where else for it to go? i can see it getting in the way too.

The wires are not too short to turn the box and shove it over as much as possible. It's just a big PITA. It's really not a good thing to do to any fuse box. Ideally, it should be relocated. I don't know where to though. This would of course require extensive wiring.

I haven't really looked into it, but it may be possible to use a smaller fuse box. Aftermarket or OEM out of another Toyota. It may also be possible to custom make something. Even if it's just a small plastic box.

When u relocate the battery to the trunk. Make sure you solder the connection for good conductivity.

Hey guys,

I'm having a little drivability problem that started yesterday. I think the gasket I had made to block the EGR might have failed. Or I might have a vac/boost leak.

IfI manage to figure it out tonight, I'll make some more, longer driving vids on Sunday.

Just buy a lead melting pot like the one used for casting lead bullet, melt the lead, dip the big wire in there and you're done. :scared:

ill prob just run a positive then its just with some cars when iv done it iv had starter motor problems, ran a negative to the block and all sweet.
i get the oxy out and turn it down low then pump the join full of solder that works good to. should be reseiving the supercharger this week in the mail. cant wait.

Guys,

Figured out the drivability problem I was having, the MAFTPro was acting up. Reset it and changed the settings some, now all is good.

Next weekend I'm going to fix my piping and try non IC with the routing shown in the vid.

Anything in particular you guys want to see in a driving vid? I made a few earlier, but they didn't turn out to great. I need to make a rig for the camera.

Speedo / tach vids are easy, I can velcro the camera to the steering wheel.

The new, and hopefully the last setup. This is what I've been doing this weekend. A non IC setup with the pipes ran outside of the engine bay. I haven't quite finished yet, so I don't know what the results are, but I'll post when I do.
