JRSC Question??

If I choose to upgrade to a JRSC what other performance parts will I need to get it running smoothly? Do I need a 3 inch exhaust or will a 2.25 work? Do I need aftermarket headers? Any help will work just fine. Thanks
Dan

If you are planning on running the stock JRSC boost, you really dont need anything else to make it work, of course any intake and exhaust work will help free things up, but dont exspect the JRSC to be a powerhouse of even put down alot of power.

Im am looking to beat most hondas and integras out there but still put up some nice numbers at the track. As of right now I have a Volant intake, FC 65mm throttle body, and FC underdrive pullies. I am looking at getting OBX or JBA headers, a 2.25 magnaflow exhaust, and getting a chip once the S/C is on. Is there really anything else I need to get?

S2, sorry about putting it in the wrong chat room. I forgot all about the FI chat room. Thanks

You will have to ditch your UDP's, My advice to you given I have a modified JRSC on my car, you will be much happier with a Vortech or ATI supercharger, or for that matter a turbo.

I have a jackson racing s/c and I would recomend getting a turbo. In my SVT I wasn't really all that impressed and with the money I spent when everything was said and done, I should have got a turbo. If you do get a jr s/c then I would suggest you go a head and get a flywheel and clutch, along with some gauges to monitor what your car is doing. When evertything is installed then you will need to get everything dyno tuned, because the black box that comes with the s/c kit may have problems and getting it tuned will over ride the box and make everything run a lot better.

I don't realy know what a turbo kit for a ZX3 cost, but for the $2,300 for the s/c and the $700 I spent to get it installed, I am pretty sure that you can get a trubo kit for that much.

Just to let you know, I spent $2,300 for the s/c, $860 for the clutch and flywheel, $250 for the a/f boost and egt gauges, $65 for the tripple gauge pod, and $1,300 for everything to get installed. In about a week I am taking it to my tuner and have everything dialed in, that is goint to cost $650, for an all day job. That is a lot of money just for a **********G supercharger.

Why is the UDP bad? I have the Focus Central one that uses the stock belt? Can I still use these or not?

Sure you can still use the UDP, but keep in mind that slowing down the assories means you slow down the speed of the SC, which inturn means less boost and less power.

This is very true, also I think that the JRSC has to have the stock crank pulley to work at all. But, if you still want to run a UDP, Focus-Central had a boost upgrade pulley to go along with the JRSC and the Vortech kits.
