Supercharged s2000 Owner here. I can't speak for all s2k owners, but I don't think I'd consider the f20c transmission *that* stout. The > 500whp s2k guys know they can pop the gear box. I know if...

Are you considering a higher final drive. It looks like you'll never need to go past 3rd gear when WOT for the 5 speed and 2nd gear for the sequential box. I understand most of the time is spent...

I'm sorry I can't really speak to the reliability of the two blowers beyond what a google search will tell you. I can tell you offhand the s2k and 350z communities have been happy with these blowers...

I spoke with vortech about this very subject and they told me I could not upgrade/rebuilt the blower. This was 3 years ago and they haven't updated their website since then (at least from what I...

While I agree with this sentiment, going to a shop that missed (unless they added it to the kit) something as obvious as a BOV would give me significant pause for caution. If you have the...

I'm sorry, I should of worded my question better. Given a built block, what do you think this kit's hp ceiling is at its smallest allowable pulley (blower's max rpm)?

So it would be reasonable to say, outside of cams, your current power level is about capped without getting into an expensive build (NA or FI) for your motor?

If so, does this make the new...

Amazing swap. Thanks for documenting so much of the work and sharing. I may have missed it, but what did you dyno at? Do you plan to see what your 1/4 mile trap speed is?
