yes it does, but it could be run with any other manifold you like as long as it does not sit higher than the stock one, otherwise it will hit the driveshaft.

Agreed. If and when I go with a rotrex setup this will be it. Sorry skunk2 but your kit its not CARB legal so why not go with a kit that makes more power and just straight up looks great!

Please read post 38. this is just a st1 set up to see what happens to the shafts/pulleys etc at a higher speed (the smaller C30-74 supercharger runs to 120k the C38 runs to 90k).

The intercooler will happen but we have to catch up on some sleep first.

Yes, I apologize, I just went back in the thread and read about that

Love the setup, looks so

Excited to see how everything fits with the intercooler.

One other thing you guys may want to test.... fitment with an RBC/RRC and both of their manifold covers. Since that shaft sits so close to the IM cover, would be good to know if that's going to be an issue that stateside people will have to be aware of.

We're really keen to check the heights of the other manifolds, perhaps one of our cousins over the pond could send us some measurements? Perhaps put a straight edge across the oil filler cap hole forwards then a measurement dropping down to the manifold at approx the closest point to our shaft?

In the mean time here's a pull on the dyno I did about an hour ago. I've closed the throttle down at 6000 revs to limit the boost to 7.5psi which is more than enough for a none intercooled setup. Any more and det sets in and pulling the ign back just defeats the object. The dip at the bottom is just lean. I will have time tomorrow to fine tune the map and straighten things up.

Not bad for shutting it down at 6k. Looks promising for sure.
