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
CX Racing Intercooler Kit 3'' Piping
SVT Fuel Pump
Vortech Bracket Assembly, Oil Feed and Drain Lines
SCT BA2400 MAF - Going blow-through
Current mods on the GT:
Flowmaster 40 Exhaust
Mac O/R Prochamber
Stock Clutch / Tranni

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.

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.
