What mods are friendly for the PWSC?

Well i think i'm finally going to install mt PWSC this weekend !!

Just wondering what Mods are ok to run with the supercharger?

what i have so far...

65mm FC TB
FC cam gears, set 0,0
Screamin demon coil
Live wires
OBX/FC race header
MIL cheater
2.25 Bosal Flex
Vibrant flex back exhaust, split into duals after the muffler
FC UDP ( yes I know these have to come off )


Which is better the FC or BBK throttle body?

Is it ok to still use the coil pack and wires? if so what do i gap the plugs at?

What else should i look into buying?

Thanx in advance
Gord

LSD, Stage 2 clutch and FC FTW! The PW/SC manual has the plug gaps specified. You can choose to run a step colder plugs if you like and I would recommend FILTER venting the valve cover breather tube to the Atomsphere to help keep IAT's down.

Yeah LSD and a clutch will be the next step i take... FC what is that? You mean for TB?

I don't know if i can get away with filter venting the valve cover here, i was going to get a oil catch can instead

-loose the under drive pulley and replace with 5.7 overdrive to gain a few psi

-loose the 2.25" exhaust -- go with 2.5" or 3" exhaust from tru-bendz

-no need to upgrade from current throttle body you have now

-def go with stage 1 colder and properly gapped plugs for boost

-I would be looking for a better clutch & flywheel very shortly if I was you

comment on a catch can... Ive been venting to atmosphere (valve cover vent and block vent) for a few months and have never had a drip come out of my vent hoses

It eliminates the code you will recieve (check engine light) from removing your cat. It installs in the connector of your rear o2 sensor and fools your pcm into thinking that the convertor is still there.

so, is it better to do an ORP with stock exhaust, or High Flow Cat with 3" exhaust?

HFC with 3" would be better.

Aaron runs an ORP with a SVT header and a Borla SVT exhaust, sounds nice works well. Blowers like big exhaust, just like turbo's.

Also, 0-0 on the cam gears???? I"ll bet that is way off and there is more power in them.

Only set at 0,0 until i am ready to get a flash tuner and get them tuned at the same time
