Procharger Question-- MAF piping size quesiton....

Quick question. When I routed my piping for my FMIC, I used the upper portion (maf housing part) of my AEM CAI. I believe its just over 2.5"

The MAF housing pipe that came with the procharger is 3". The AEM pipe made routing IC pipe SOOOO much easier and better looking. The piping is 2.5" from all the way from the Procharger to the throttle body..

Is this going to cause any problems? It looks SO clean AND I had the local radiator shop roll a bead on my AEM pipe and other IC pipes I had to Fab up.

So superchargers usually add 60-80% of power/speed. And you whp is 380, that means you had like 220 horsepower before you started? How does it add up with a regular 2.0 zetec?

^^^^ Who are you talking to?? No one here is running a supercharger making 380whp. He said there is a guy "xarmyfocusx" that is making 280whp on a Procharger S/C and another guy is making 330+whp on a stroked engine plus Procharger.
