Default vortech first start video!

First star with the vortech running. Can't lie it soudns awesome but the install was a slight pain in the *** because I had pretty much zero help and have never done one of these before. But it soudns and feels awesome. Just got to get my exhaust leak fixed so I get an accurate AFR reading on my wideband and can get the tune worked out. It already broke down once again because the fuel line keeps coming off the fuel pump inside the tank

Sounds good man V1 is really loud.

I bet you had fun trying to put the belt on yourself I had someone help with that to make it easier.

The guy I bought it from said he was pushing like 14 pounds jvog. Maybe it's upgraded. Said it was on the car when he boguht it so maybe it was upgraded to a t-trim? Yeah the belt was a bitch! I had a buddy just happen to drop in and I made him help me lol. I layed on the floor and used a jack handle to push up on the tensioner to get the belt on! If you change the belt do you always have to remove the blower or is there another way?!? I still need to put in the tr6 plugs. got stock heat range autolite coppers in her now.

lol then give me some hints. Remember on my 01 the tensioner's hole that you use to move it is now hidden behind the mounting bracket. So do you pull the blower off or what? I really want some hints so I can change it easily wen the time comes!

Oh.... well maybe that's the difference.. cuz mine isn't behind the mounting bracket, there is just enough room to get a 1/2 ratchet on there.

Yeah mine is hidden as well, my friend has the same setup and actually made a tensioner tool. He made me one, we just need to drill a hole in it to finish it up.

Looks and sounds great man! How did you do the IAT? The first time i did it my grommet broke, now I have a new different grommet and silicone, no leaks as of now. And yeah def. change those plugs.
