Ah, I hear it now. That sounds awesome. How does it feel when you punch it? I can tell it throws you back a little bit.

Hey Mike! Looking forward to hearing about your build. You gotta post some build photos too! Also send us some pics and we will add them to our customer section when we post it up :)

thanks wingman, it definitely feels faster can turn the tires over much easier. Its always so hard to tell when your the driver as opposed to being a passenger. working out some kinks, here and there. belt wont stop squeaking, damn flexible egr tube somehow managed to crack, and then split all the way through. just wish my tires weren't so expensive

@BA99ranger
Sorry to hear your EGR extension cracked. We've never had a problem with the tubes before. Could it have been bent to far or torqued hard when installing? (can only make a minimum radius of about 2" and take a limited amount of torque). Either way... we will take care of you and get you a new one. To arrange... shoot us a PM :)

As for the squeaking belt, it's either a worn out tensioner or the idler pulley. If it was an old idler, the change in the angle of tension may have been enough to make it fail. I had to swap that on our R&D ranger.

Ps.. As you said... power is harder to notice in the driver seat. But you'll really notice the power change when you start driving in higher gears or when you're towing. The torque increase is insane! Just leave it in 1st and let out the clutch... without gas it will climb a 20%.

LOVE the vids! Keep it up!

We will have our 8psi kit done soon.

We are just bundling up injectors, MAF adapter, 8psi pulley, plx AFR module, Bosch o2 wideband sensor and SCT firewire to plx cable for quick and easy tuning with SCT. Also, our intercooler is almost ready for release. We're finally getting things together over here. LOL.

We actually just set this kit up on a mustang running the 8psi kit and if flies. See below:

Just posted a universal tuning blog. This is applicable for all custom supercharger/turbo installs and even naturally aspirated. This should help anyone interested in supercharging even if you do not buy a kit from us!
