SkittishFreddy just put it into 1st gear on 8thcivic

Would any modification be needed to install it on a k24/k20?
My gues is the gains would be greater.
Any input is much appreciated.

When driving around normal, you hear a bit of whine from the bypass valve. It's not the supercharger, it's the sound of air hissing through a small opening to keep the system from making boost. When you get on it, it sounds like a normal car.

Here, this might help...

Taken today, got the kit install finished and tuned last night.

Nice run,
I would get this kit in a heart beat if it came with a whine.
How much did you pay for the kit?

With slicks, the way this thing rockets off in 1st/2nd literally took my breath away (hence the expletive at the end of the video). The CTe felt dead up top in comparison.

I see you lurking Marcin. We did an initial test for BBG, we were only able to drop boost by 1 psi with the stock BPV. We know what we need to do to get real BBG, I just have pick up the right valve. I'll keep you posted.

Here's where I'm at as of tonight.

Just Kraftwerks kit, a bit of e85 blended into a 3/4 tank of 92 octane pump gas (for protection at the track), and Berk HFC. Everything else is stock.

I don't have a graph of the CTe from a really low RPM, but you can kind of get the idea here... it's at least 10-20ft lbs difference between 3000-4000 rpm, but after that the Rotrex closes the gap and runs away....

So you gained almost 100hp just off of a custom tune over the stock tune with the sc kit?
This was a custom tune and not the e-tune right?
