What I like best about the centrifrugal type blowers is the whine! Add some cheese (sticky tires) to the mix and hold on. :D

I may hear my Eaton a bit, but more would be better. Add a cog pully belt set up and call it perfection. I would buy the motoblue cog set up, but I believe that 14psi is too much for the Eaton to muster (too much heat build up).

yeah, they just set up the account and bill and i just call and put down money when i can, kinda like a lay-away plan good stuff and easier to sneak money out without getting caught by the Misses :thumbsup:

When you guys get your blowers, make sure you get all the necessary supporting parts to go with them. Especially if elevating the boost level past what is recommended. My vortech'd 97 cobra only lasted a few days before sending the shortblock south. Make sure the tune is right, and enjoy your new power!!

Make sure the tune is right, and enjoy your new power!!At 47000 miles on my Vortech, with a a compressor rebuild at 28000 (impellor and bearings), the engine just screams along whenever I want it. Don't DO anything that the manufacturer says NOT to do and engine longevity should be just fine. If you go hog wild with boost on a stock engine it won't last. Enjoy 6 psi of boost AND a longlasting engine. To really wake up the performance of the entire car, put in 4.10 gears and make it come alive. If you think you need to push it to 10 psi to beat some other car you are going to be terribly disappointed very quickly when the engine expires. But then you can spend another ton and a half of money to rebuild everything.

had one in mine since nov of last year. I would not run the FMU its not all that safe to run. The best and safest way to go is 42# injectors, 255lph pump, 90mm lightning mass air meter and a chip. My short block gave up shortly after I installed mine. But this was due to the fact that I had huge tuner issues. Long story short some how my fan was left unplugged and motor overheated...oil smoke came later. still made 396rwhp at 10:1a/f and it dropped four cylinders. I drove it crippled like that for 6 months.

Actually on a stock setup an FMU isn't that bad. It "overcompensates" for not having a full-tilt fuel system upgrade very well. My recommendation is to always get the kit installed the way Vortech designed it (that's with an FMU) and once everything is working properly and you have some miles on the boosted setup....then you can start looking at changes. More people have blown up ditching the FMU then people still running one.

Not safe? Explanation please!
At 47K miles with the FMU that came with the Vortech kit, all is well.
Install a boost gauge and a fuel pressure gauge when you install the Vortech. Keep an eye on feul pressure gauge when you mash the motor. If the fuel pressure gauge doesn't jump from the normal 35-40 psi to 65+ psi when you go into boost, get out of boost and check out the FMU. Otherwise, to start with, run what the kit brung.
