I don't have one, but here is some information that I have gleaned.

The jackson is a fairly straight forward install and you will end up with about 160 whp.

The vortech I believe is more complicated to install and I think (not sure) you end up moving the battery. You will however see more Hp gains from the vortech.

I'm sure that other people have more input and will correct me if I'm wrong.

I have A JRSC on my 03 ZX3 5spd Car, and yes they only push about 4.5psi in stock trim when I had mine dyoned it pulled 146whp with 65mm TB, FC Race header, FC flex pipe, borla cat back and FS air intake, a Company out of Texas ASP will custom make you a pully the stock size on the SC is 3" the upgrade is either 2.6" or 2.3" they run about 95$ and takes about 3 or so weeks to get I have a 2.3" on the way, but keep in mind that it will need some custom tuning sence the JR Fuel Card will not support the upgrades, I also relocated my Air charge temp sensor after the SC so it would read the air temp before it enters the motor, and I also have 42lbs injectors and pro-m 70 MM mass air as well to go with it. And a guy who is going to dyno tune the car. if you have any other question I may be able to help you with email me at [email protected].

you wouldn't know of any tune shops that are good in chicago would you??? its so hard most shops down here only deal with your common honda motor. did you feel a nice gain when you supercharged you foci @ factory jrsc settings?

and as a reply to your other question about power on jrsc settings, it was a bit of work to get it to even push 4.5psi, but after I figured it out and JR really wasnt any help with the initial boost problem it feels ok but no where near what I think it should be thats why I am doing the boost upgrade.

JRSC

I have a similar set-up to firehawk, althought I am using turbo toms MIC fuel management system and snow performance stage II variable boost water injection system. With the 2.3" pulley you will notice a significant difference, necer had the stock 3.0, always had the 2.6. ASP takes more like a month for a custom pulley. I have a brand new 2.6 if you need one, $50.

I need to take full advantage of my Autologic chip on the dyno, I have a 4-bank chip and plan on putting some timing back in.

What did you have to do to get it to push 4.5psi?

I had to take the SC off and play with the bypass valve and i got it to go up to 4psi with the adjustment screw on it but it was still letting boost seap by the butterfly, so I got JR to send me a new bypass valve and adjusted that one and it was much better.

just recently I had my car dynoed (see my other post) and my ZX3 got 179.8WHP and 160.5WTQ, so thats not bad to the wheels, should be over 200hp to the crank VS the 130hp stock

My buddy just had a turbo installed/custom tuned by Tony's Fast Lane in Lyons his car's running 450 HP 493 ft/lbs and it's smooth as stock...they trailer the cars to a dyno in Joliet to custom tune them, might want to check them out.

edit: he has an '01 SS that's why he's pushing that much to the wheels [thumb]

They've worked on all types of cars, they're a custom shop not limited to any type of car. I'm sure they know what they're doing.

Did you get the extra 33whp(you recently posted 146whp) from just installing the 2.3 pully, 42lb injectors and 70mm MAF ?


Can you post pics of the dyno ?

If you have a 5speed, then you are pushing 206.77 hp at the crank.
