Default Vortech'd 99-04 GT's click here!

Alright so my build is coming to a close on putting parts together, im aiming for the 2nd week going into March for my initial build and put together. I'm putting the last finishing parts together but want a last final opinions on what people would suggest doing differently unless i'll be fine doing it the way im going with the build.
I still need to get my 42lb injectors, gauges + pod(s) and a tial bov 3psi spring. Any advice on this build/setup you would do differently before I get started id greatly appreciate. Also pulley size should i go from a 3.60 to a 3.33? I'm aiming for 8-10psi for boost.

Vortech parts I have put together:

Vortech V1 S-Trim - Practically Brand new
Anderson Power Pipe
Tial BOV
CX Racing Intercooler Kit 3'' Piping
SVT Fuel Pump
SCT XCAL2
Vortech Bracket Assembly, Oil Feed and Drain Lines
SCT BA2400 MAF - Going blow-through

Current mods on the GT:

FRPP 3.73s
Flowmaster 40 Exhaust
Mac O/R Prochamber
Stock Headers
Stock Clutch / Tranni
Stock Internals and Block

3.33 pulley size will get you around 10psi with the power pipe. BTW If you are going draw though then you will not be able to use a blow off valve. You will need a bypass valve.

kerns is right you will have to use it as a bypass and route the air back to before the headunit. you wont be able to vent to atmosphere. i was going to run the hpx 05+ style maf on my vortech kit with a vortech mini race bov. i would suggest going blow through.

also you may consider running a boost a pump just to be safe.

and for gauges i was going to run (already have them) wideband a/f, boost/vac and oil pressure. i chose oil pres because of the oil lines going to and from the unit. i wanted to make sure it was good at all times. you could also run a fuel pressure gauge if you wanted.

same as what others have said, as well as the boost a pump. i think i will be picking one up soon because my focus pump is close to maxing out (according to my tuner)

In regards to the pump, I picked up the DivisonX fuel pump from Lethal. After I installed it (have yet to dyno it), I was told I will be running out of fuel at WOT with a single. I guess I will be putting that to the test. Shouldn't need a boost a pump from what I'm told.

I'll have to get that aluminum flange for the maf and try that out and see how it goes. Any gauge recommendations with a pod setup?

You do realize that you have to take the blower off each time you want to swap the pulley right? I dont think you would have enough time to switch to all 3 throughout the day unless you want a bill of $1500 for the tune... I suggest researching what other peoples power outputs are and what pulley size they have to gauge the size pulley you need.

Yes im aware you need to take the blower off.. I was stating the person is throwing in another pulley for me out of nice ness. I have heard of everyone being intercooled with a 3.33 pulley setup at 8-10psi but thanks for your concern but ive done my research and im not worried about cost on dyno day. Im just looking to get it done right.

Once again, you can't use a blow off valve with your setup.

Lightning maf won't be able to handle a blow through setup. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SRE-Aluminum...item5645224ce2 on 3" piping.

Why not?

Plenty of people use the tial on blow through setups.

I have the tial 50 mm bov with the 3 psi spring and it works PERFECT. I love it and it was cheaper than the red race or vortech valves.

What you have listed looks good except I would use the 05+ HPX sensor and IMO, drop down to the 3.12-3.15 pulley if you want to see 10 psi.

The only thing that differentiates a BOV and a Bypass valve is that a bypass usually recirculates the air....as long as you have a spring that will let the BOV stay open at idle, its the same as a bypass. Thats why tial sells the 3 psi supercharger spring.

I dont think he would see that amount ofboost with a front mount.....

With an SI v2 vortech, FMIC with a 3.125, bone stock PI longblock id see about 10 psi at 6k, maybe 11 psi when I reved it top 6200 on a cold day, the 3.33 will probably get you about 8 at 6k.

I was running a big KN filter on the end of my blower which was tested vs a powerpipe and the guy saw the same boost, if not more with the filter.

This was based on the fact that he is using a BA2400 so he will have to go draw through. BOV work great for blow through setups. BA2400 MAFs usually peg pretty low in a draw through setup, and you need almost double the capacity for a blow through setup. The BA2400 might not be able to handle the volume of air in a blow through setup. He either needs to get rid of the BOV and go BPV or he needs to get an HPX '05 slot style or another similar maf.

Gotcha,

I would say go HPX 05 and never look back.

By the time you buy that cheaper sensor and a Mafia extender you will end up spending more than the hpx costs anyway.

Alrighty sounds good.. so drop to a 3.15 to reach around 10psi or so and deffently go with an HPX 05. Guess ill repost my BA2400 for sale again lol..
