And once he gets it installed, he needs to go on a nice long break in drive.

Update for today...

No DME not sure when it will show up. (So no Mfest)

I purchase a Blue Tial Q BOV today as the AA one is so cramp in there. Hopefully, this one will work much better.

When does ManFest start? If you've doubled the hp then it should take 1/2 the time...or is my math screwed up? It can't be, I'm asian!

If it's coming down to hassle, don't mod it. I am only curious, nothing else. Perhaps a good place to start is what rpm the water pump needs to spin to maintain proper temps. Maybe you can run an oil cooler and the under drives? IDK, I just know it's not common for people to run pullies on s/c kits.
It's pretty simple Underdrive Pulley's work great in Naturally Aspirated Vehicles since you are slowing down the speed of other components just enough to have them function properly and help speed up the crank which helps to produce the additional power. When you Forced Induction more specifically towards a Supercharger Setup where it's a belt driven system you will amplify that effect. We design our products to be functional that way you can still enjoy to luxury of having air condition and OEM cooling system.

Now putting a smaller pulley kit on a Supercharger will help Generate some power.

I guess this is a good thing for me not going to MFest. As I will have more time to tinker with the stuff. Plus, I have a Big Business Trip soon.

Gonna pm ya, don't want to OT this. Trip, I was in the same boat as you, had a meet coming up. Talked a lot of sh!t to a lot of people. I could have brought the car. (not done, not how I wanted it) When I was next day shipping parts and rushing everything. I didn't enjoy what I was doing. I knew I wouldn't be happy with the result. I think you are doing the right thing!

I should have said that differently, I didn't mean for it to come out like that. I wasn't trying to say, you talked a lot sh!t. That was what I have done GL

Their Hats kind of suck with the mesh back. You'll look like a hillbilly...not a look that works for Asians. And the AA shirts shrunk so much my nipples were popping out. They need some work in the swag dept.

Today, the Tial Q Bov came today with the Greddy Adapter Plate.



Took me 2.5 hours to install this... Had to use a Different 45* elbow readj the pipes to make it fit.



Now, I have to cut the Fender and install the MAF and Filter

I have a feeling you aren't planning on recirculating this blow-off. You may run in to some drivability issues with a setup like that.

Your MAF is positioned in front of the blower which is before the BOV. Once the air runs past the MAF it sends a signal telling the DME you have XX/mass of air going in to the engine. When the BOV vents to atmosphere your motor no longer has that much air going towards it and it will run rich. You may shoot some flames on WOT shifts.
