slowly losing trace amounts of coolant via evaporation is normal.

Go to Page 78, around the end of March...BigFatFlip was talking about the same phenomenon with the coolant level.

Anybody with a built motor tried taking this kit to its limit yet with e85? I've heard this kit has some great potential and just curious to see if anyone's really been trying to push the envelope on it yet.

Been stalking this kit since it's inception and as like many others, have weighed this and the JRSC (now with the C38!) very heavily.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Go drive

Just ordered my kit last night. Super anxious.

Anybody who ordered from Ft86SF, how long did it take to deliver?

We have a customer with a built stock compression block on Flex Fuel waiting to come in and get tuned on the 20psi pulley. Just gotta finish break-in first!

I'm curious what any of the tuners/builders think about boring over to 2.3 liters and keeping the compression the same with this supercharger. Dumb? Expensive? Asking for trouble? I figure if the engine has to be built to get to 400+ Why not increase the displacement while you're at it.

It would be a nice stepped plan I'm guessing. It'll take me a while to get to where I want my car to be, but I'm guessing going 2.3L with the same compression will give me a nice bump in power. Then add the supercharger and I should be able to easily push 400+ on E85. Thanks. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't being completely delusional.

I'm not usually one to brag, but I'm just waaaay to happy how well this thing turned out. Thanks Neal @The Racers Line for the fab work! (Like a typical engineer, I'll take the credit for design lol)

Here's my "stealth" oil cooler

Took me a couple passes of hacking up that cover to fit with out taking off the bumper, but I got it on there. Plus, now its removable just in case I want more flow (just gently yank it off!).

I'll be doing a track day at Sonoma Raceway (Infeneon) on Mon and will update with track data.

Edit: Wanted to mention that I also used Russell Performance fittings and lines to stay along the Edelbrock family, so @Edelbrock LLC you already got half of the kit! Source a core, mocal plate, some brackets and a cut-out template and you're set!

I recommend you put a hole in your fender liner to vent the air going through the cooler

Already planning on it, just trying to figure out a good way to louver the flimsy curved fender liner to keep water from entering. I've done it before with a dremel and a heat gun
