Cool FT-86 SpeedFactory Vortech Supercharger Build

We are a little late to the game with this, but we have some changes being made to the car before we head out to 86 Fest in Fontana, CA.

We have started our install of the Vortech Supercharger kit and are almost finished! We want this thread to showcase our findings with the kit and for our testing data from doing what we do best, lapping at the track We'll have dynos, video clips, and lapping sessions all to come.

For now, we will be testing the 9lb. pulley and will move to the 12lb. pulley. All on stock internals, for now.....Look for some interesting things and events to come from us next season on that


















We are still wrapping things up on the install, but we shall be boosting soon



UPDATE!! 8/1/13


Alright, a couple more updates on the progress on the car and a few goodies that got thrown on with the supercharger.

Went with an upgraded Koyo radiator and Samco hose kits to dress up the engine bay a little bit

The Koyo is pretty much twice the thickness of the OEM unit and should provide more than enough cooling, even with the amount of track time this car will see. Samco hoses in blue, who doesn't like a touch of color under the hood??











Next up is the installation of a Mishimoto Oil cooling kit. Comes with everything you need to install an oil cooler on your car. It's a great kit, but it was not designed with a Vortech kit in mind. So, we had to get a little creative with the mounting.

First thing is the sandwich plate does not allow for larger aftermarket oil caps to be fitted. The sandwich plate is a bit wide and does not allow the aftermarket oil caps to be fully removed. We tried a couple other on our shelf and they were all too large. Not a big issue and we alerted Mishimoto about it and they are looking into a smaller sandwich plate for the kit. For now, the stock oil cap will do.









Next up, the mounting plate. The mounting plate is designed to hang off the inside of the factory bumper beam. Basically, there was a 90* lip on the mounting plate that could mount of the beam. Since there is an intercooler in the way now, we had to mount the oil cooler in front of the beam. This meant cutting of the 90* bend and drilling straight into the bumper beam. Easy enough











We are just buttoning everything up and double checking everything, at this moment. More to come, as always!!

UPDATE!!! 8-5-13

We got everything, pretty much, wrapped up on this install. With the Mishimoto oil cooler installed and the Vortech kit in place, all we had left to do was start buttoning things up.

The position of the oil cooler did give us an extra step to take while doing this. As stated before, the Mishimoto oil cooler kit was not designed to work with the Vortech kit and we knew that going in. This next step required us to cut out a portion of the lower bumper cover, as the oil cooler protruded into this spot of the cover.

We traced out an area of the cover to get trimmed out and turned on the dremel.





With that taken care of, we were able to get the bumper cover back on and get the car buttoned up.













With a new base map flashed onto the car from Tony at FA20Club, we fired the beast up and everything was working flawlessly!! (that's a first)

The car is undergoing more changes today as we get prepared for 86 Fest this weekend. We'll keep you guys updated and hope to bring you dyno testing and videos soon!

Midwest bugs are the WORST. @charged86 drive up 65 to Indy and your car wil be covered by the time you get back home. Its ridiculous.

They sell @FA20Club.com tunes so I'm guessing they're using him.
