Have a few JRSC questions

Well...my Turbo build was canceled because of funds. I was planning on selling all my Turbo build stuff and just putting the money towards paying off my car. But then I was presented the option of a cheap JRSC + SVT header and went for it. So now I've got a few questions about it.

1. Seeing as the intake part is more in the same spot as on the SVT, will an SVT CAI work on just the regular Zetec JRSC? I've heard they push a lot of hot air and I wanna cool it off if at all possible.

2. I'm going with the SVT header because it's proven to be the best. Will wrapping it do anything other than reduce engine bay heat levels?

3. Any guesses at what my power levels will be? I'll have the JRSC, SVT Header set up, 2.5" stainless exhaust, 5.7" CFM OD Pulley, and some type of CAI. What do you guys think my whp will be?

4. What else could I add that won't cost me an arm and a leg to get a little more power out of this set up?

The blower will be a source of heat in the engine bay, so to cool it off, you need to lower the ambient temps lower than the blower itself.

Wrapping the header keeps the temps lower and that is HUGE when it comes to fighting heat soak. Cutting back the biggest source of heat, the header, will be the biggest thing you can probably do.

You get a 180 degree thrermostat, bigger radiator and maybe even wrapping the intake pipe to protect it a little more.

you want to use the SVT air box, or other "box" style short ram, JRSC dont like to work for its air, and the SVT airbox was proven to make the most HP by oscar jackson himself.

I ran the volant on my old JRSC setup.

yes, wrap it or have it coated.

185'ish.....are you running the BBK and the OD pulley? if so..then DONT, pick one or the other, but not BOTH.

a real tune, not the black box crap or powercard that came with it.

Thanks for the input so far guys. I forgot to mention I'll be having Tom tune it. And thanks for the info on not running both the BBK pulley and the CFM one.

I thought John Disproved that CAI thing. he gained like 7 whp over the stock airbox for the SVT on a JRSC w/ BBK. i'll try to find the link. it was a myth

i would run both the bbk and overdrive that is what it is meant for.

wrap the header. put it this way you touch a coated header when it is hot and you go to Hospital, touch a wrapped on adn you can sit your hand on it for a couple seconds.

.

...if you use both, you get dangerously close to the actual superchargers RPM redline, trust me I know...it is NOT worth it.

not to mention, anything over what the BBK puts out is just moving more heat, even with WMI, its not worth it....I was one of the very few to get over 200whp with that little m45, and my valves didnt like me very much after i melted one in half, pushing around 15lbs of boost thru that over sized hair dryer.


and the SVT airbox is the best intake for the JRSC, i chose the volant, because I wanted to hear the blower whine, lost about 3-5whp, but it was no matter to me.
