Based on the rest of the car and what little of it's history I have, I'm operating under the assumption that the SC install was most likely done in whatever the cheapest and most basic way is.

The plan is to baby it around this winter while I finish all of the shit that should have been done along with the SC kit: radiator, dual catch cans, cam plate, header, stuff like that. Then in the spring it's getting a small pulley and will be professionally tuned on a dyno.

I'll check and see if it has the OEM MAP sensor or not tonight. Pretty confident that it probably does have the original one since this is a pretty low boost set up and I don't know they would've needed a different one but I don't know all of the ins and outs of tuning so maybe I'm wrong there.

Well I believe a 'savvy' (or hacky) tuner can probably tune a base Vortech kit with the stock MAP sensor, even though it will peg it 1/2 way through the RPM range. But not ideal - if that's the case then it would make sense that your readings are capped. Worth it to check it out, and also worth it to upgrade and re-tune if it is the stock sensor. I think I might have an extra 2.5 bar sensor in my garage somewhere.

Oh, its only been about 10k miles since i swap from 3.33 pulley to the 2.87.
Mods:
- Vortech v2 w/2.87 pulley @15psi on e85.
- 1050x ID
- 65c DW fuel pump
- Radium catch can
- Radium fuel rails
- Ptuning flex fuel kit
- Custom intake setup to front of bumper (thanks to pure automotive for the design)
- Max bov upgrade
- 2017+ red intake manifold
- 72mm grams throttle body
- p3 multi vent gauge w/ analog boost reading
- oil pressure gauge
- afr gauge
- 19 row oil cooler
- Csf radiator
- tomei UEL headers
- JDL 3” overpipe/front pipe combo (catless)
- 3” Greddy Ti single exit exhaust
That’s basically it for power mods, other than that full suspension has been done coilovers, control arms, solid rear mounts, braces, etc..the list is long lol.
Currently tuned by mike @xero limit (aka moto-east) I definitely recommend him. I have 2 separate maps with different timings. One for daily “conservative” and other one is “kill mode”
So i got it dynoed on a dyno jet. It made 351whp and 268wtq. Anyone know why my numbers are low? I figured with the boost and mods itll be closer to the 400whp. At peak power afr’s are at 12.7 and around 24.7 degrees of timing. Graph is also linear with no dips. It does flat line around 6900 rpm though. Not sure what els i can do to push more power.
Reply your thoughts. Thanks!

Looks nice. I wish I could add some more boost to my setup.

Hello 86 club.
So, currently my BRZ is running E85 with OFT and I have almost everything I need to finally install my Vortech I’ve had laying around for months now. I’ve just been debating what pulley I want to go with and I read someone mentioned the 3”, but it’s an 8rib.
How much of an issue would this be? And if it is a safe possibility what size belt should I run?
Also I’m going to be re-scaling the front O2, will I need to do this with the Omni 3 I’m going to be installing? And any other recommendations you might have?
Thank you for your time!

An idea of my setup:
*Engine*
- Vortech V3(not installed)
- OFT v2 (E85 pop tune)
- Omni 3Bar Map(not installed)
- Radium dual catch cans
- FIC 650 injectors(not installed)
- AEM 340 fuel pump(Not installed)
*Exhaust*
- Speed Factory UEL headers
- HKS front pipe
- Tomei over pipe
- Greddy Evo cat-back
*Wheel/Suspension*
- Tein Flex-A
- Rayz Gram Lights (57extreme)

Well, I just bought this since it went on sale for an insane price.

It's going to take about 2-4 weeks to get here.

So question is...does this come with a BOV or nah? (Yeah I gave in to my inner rice unfortunately. I wanted the cool BOV sounds.)



I've seen people get a TurboSmart BOV but I'm not sure if that sticks to the stock one (if there even is one).

On the other hand, Vortech sells this one -

https://vortechsuperchargers.com/pro...ru-brz-systems

Just curious if I could save like 350 dollars buying a TurboSmart BOV.

The kit does come with a diverter valve, you can hear it but by no means is it as loud as the MaxFlow upgrade. The turbo smart is supposed to be in the middle of stock and MaxFlow in terms of noise. Also, the turbo smart does install in the same location as the Stock Diverter valve. You can even buy the MaxFlow without the new pipe and save a couple hundred you would just need the RS BOV adapter plate that would allow it to go in the stock valve location.

Vortech supercharger issues

Hey guys. Long time watcher first time poster so sorry if this is in the wrong place. I recently installed a vortech supercharger on my 2013 manual Toyota 86. It had a bad tune and was running very rich for a while. Eventually the car started to idle really rough, and break up at 5k rpm. So I replaced the coil packs, spark plugs and recently got a decent tune. The car ran great, made really good power. This lasted for about a week. Car now feels like stock power and sometimes doesn’t wanna idle like before. Feels like there is a dead stop sometimes between 3k-4K rpm. Can anyone help me out? Feel like maybe the cat is blocked up maybe from when it was running really rich. On my obd2 boost/temp gauge it’s hitting like 7psi which I think is what it was hitting when it was good. But on the exutek computer when it was getting tuned it was hitting 9psi. But of a noob haha. Cheers

Car has stock header.
Mxp comp rs cat back
3 port oil catch can

Who tuned your car and what other mods do you have? headers will def open up air flow out of the engine.

@Hartley107 Yep, logs are important.

Grab these channels to start: Air Fuel Ratio (AFR), Commanded AFR, Short Term Fuel Trim (STFT), Long Term Fuel Trim (LTFT), Ignition Advance, and Advance Multiplier (IAM), and your boost pressure.

Upload to Datazap.me, it's a pretty widely used site to chart and share logs.

Hey guys, just got my package.

I'm waiting till Black Friday to buy the supporting mods and was wondering if I should change anything else.

I have a 2017 BRZ so I believe I don't have any need for an oil temperature gauge as there is a built in one. I'm also not running a boost gauge because it's...supercharged. However, I'm told it can be nice to have one in case of boost leaks?

Omni 3 BAR - Very very important and very much required.

MAPerformance Oil Cooler (Bought because some review said he ran it with a Vortech kit so presumably it should be fine.)

AEM AFR Gauge

AEM Oil Pressure Gauge

Racer X Catch Can (Debating if I should just splurge for the dual catch can but it's not like I'm tracking this car...)

Turbosmart 25mm BOV w/ Blue Spring

I believe this is all the important ones. It's the ones during installation that I require more knowledge about.

One quart of Subaru 0w20 for the Oil Cooler
One oil filter.
Gauge mounts.

Am I going to need additional stuff such as additional wiring, oil adaptors...ect?

All installation will be done by a professional shop and tuned by someone who is very familiar with the platform (DD Performance in Sealy, TX).
