Unfortunately I work October 14th (shift work), but I'm heading out to Castrol this Friday with a few friends. I want to see your beast in person and get the scoop on your built tranny.

I wont be back out until my new trans is installed,
cat's gutted and revised tune installed, could take 2-3 weeks.

Finally got a call from Mopac late today,
my Fuel Pressure gauge fitting from ZEX finally arrived,
and my pigtail for my Trinity is in so I can finally Data Log my A/F from my Auto Meter wideband.

BTW, you may want to consider re-working your filter location

the top right under the hood is where the hottest air rises and accumulates



Mine sits low with a little bracket tweaking and get fresh air rammed in from the lower bumper cowl

A lot of good information in the thread. Due to RIPP not answering i decided to go with a lift kit first. I ordered a 6inch BDS coilover system( all fox shocks ), tuner, catch can, fuel hostage 22x9.5, and some terra grapplers.

Already have rims and tires now, Should have tuner today, BDS lift kit friday and hopefully catch can friday as well.

I started a build thread so i will update that.

How are these supercharge work in the winter? its gets pretty cold here in canada.

Also im also confused a bit if its a straight install or you would need some dyno time to tweek the tune a bit. Want kind of dyno tuner can dyno tune a ripp supercharger?( what base do they need, like software or experience?)
My comon sense says it needs dyno since other mods are added, ex: headers. TRying to figure the big picture.

As of now im running k&n Cai, 18'' muflex magna flow muffler, bully dog programer.
would I be safe to add JBA's shorty headers with magnaflow y pipe without any dyno time?
OR should I wait and put some longtubes with the RIpp stage 3 S/C kit?

And should I stay clear of the 87mm Throttlebodies upgrade or whatever the best is since ill be doing the S/C?

sorry for the pill load of questions but I need to be sure before spending some big bucks,
Thanks and Cheers

Use in Canada and in the cold is fine!
I have a buddy with one who lives 8 hours north of Toronto and he is a good 10-15 degrees cooler in winter time and has no issues

As for tuning or dyno tuner, they would need to be able to tune a Diablo tuner and then they would be able to do it for you.
If you are adding headers, you surely would want to get it tuned to get maximum results.

I would certainly look into gears as well.
The supercharger will mask the strain you're putting on the tranny IMO
If you look at RIPPs truck too they have 37's and 4.56 gears.

DO you think I could get away with it with 3.92 for a while or I would run into some issues? Thanks for your input
