Procharger + nitrous build thread

So, after a long thought process I've decided to go as big as I can afford with a Procharger.

For 11 years I kept it pretty normal. The day I bought the car I also bought the SRI. Over the next couple years my brother and I put in cams, different exhausts/headers, cam gears, UDP's, etc. During this time I sprayed a 55-75 wet shot and had tunes done for the NA stuff.

Last year we decided to throw on the blower kit that I got from here in 2011 or 2012. I immediately ordered a CFM clutch/flywheel kit, torsen diff, new VR mounts, 50lb injectors, rah rah rah. While doing remote tuning, Tom found that the knock sensor was pulling quite a bit of timing. After some troubleshooting, I bit the bullet and asked Tom to build a short block.

So here we are today. I just took delivery of the ~9.5:1CR short block (thanks for transporting it mom!). Once we get everything together I will take it to Tom for dyno tuning. It will be using the smallest blower pulley and a CFM overdrive crank pulley as long as we don't max out the blower too early. The nitrous is going to be the fun part. We are planning on a lot of spray - as long as cylinder pressure doesn't get too high and we have enough fuel. After this season is over I'll send the blower off to ATI to get the C2 internals put in.


Pics will come once I get it on the stand.

Btw, thanks for your help & patience, Tom. I'll be bringing the old block and crank when I come down for the dyno tuning. I'm hoping it'll only be a couple weeks.

I'll give you a call for the start-up tune once we get everything in.

Sounds awesome. I'm going to look into a nitrous setup.

Ordered the head studs and timing belt kit from CFM. Bro is coming up later this week to help with the swap.

We installed this clutch last year. Do you guys think it'll be good enough for some runs w/o the nitrous?

Got the head studs and timing belt kit in from CFM yesterday. Since bro still isn't here to help out I decided to start. Got the oil and coolant drained, most coolant lines disconnected, battery/box out, took off the intake side of the piping, removed the nitrous lines from the intake pipe, etc.

Can someone tell me what this is? It's attached to the fuel line right before the fuel rail.

Its a dampener for the fuel rail , it needs to be there unless your going to a return fuel system

^^ looking forward to this as its what i have in mind as well. so will it be a simple single nozzle system for the nitrous. or are you going to go a little crazy... i love the look of direct port setups, jsut saying.
