    if your getting a shift kit make sure you get a corvette servo. makes the auto a little bit more fun.

    it essentially ups the line pressure on the 1st-2nd shift and with a car in good nic you can chirp 2nd :)

    picked up the charger last sunday everything looks good, couple of hose lines missing like vacuum lines oil drain for charger fuel lines for regulator and pcv extensions etc but im going to pick them up today. Also need some bigger injectors new spark plugs and longer leads.
    Going to try and get my hands on a 12 psi pulley also
    Need to know where to get the boost gauge pickup from?
    And also are all the bolts on the serpentine setup reverse roatation ie. harmonic balancer?
    Also need to know where i can put my drain for the oil , does anyone know if oil comes all the way upto the top of the front of the sump ie. when you look down between your thermo fn shroud and engine and can see the top of the sump is there oil all the way to the top of that position. cheers

    Will get pics up of the kit soon

    had a go at fitting the intercooler today, turns out i left my tools out the front of the worksite in thursday haha lucky no one took em but all i could get done was removing front bar and seeing how the intercooler and piping fit up , intercooler sits fairly low due to the top of the ic not fitting between the headlights and the piping being made for it to sit low so its a nice cop magnet also its 100mm thick so the bottom of the front bar needs to be cutout a little bit where its curves back towards the radiator, hopefully a series 3 bottom lip will cover the intercooler a bit more, also the drier had to be taken out and the trans cooler moved, lucky i install aircons for a living and will move the drier somewhere else, will get a pic up of the intercooler behind the bar tomoz, gotta wait till i get leads plugs injectors before i put the hole thing in, and an oil pressure gauge because the supply oil fitting i have has an oil pressure gauge already t'd into it, also need some info on making the dipstick the oil return for the charger, tapping into the sump seems like a ****around

    haha in the backstreets at charly there thats where my work mate lives who i get a lift off sometimes when hes got my work truck, nah that number is the dudes i bought it off a year or so ago haha it burnt into the tint which got taken off yesterday because it was bubbling and **** i think it will stay off now.

    As for the charger im going to buy a smaller intercooler probably 550x300x76 as the one i have now is like 550x450x100, so hopefully ile be able to fit the trans cooler behind it easily move the drier and chop 100mm off each pipe that goes to the ic so it sits 100mm up from where the original intercooler sat, still also need to get some injectors and longer leads maybe ile see where i can move the coil pack to and im thinking of getting a 10 or 12 pound pulley but ile see what psi i get with this one first to see if it actually makes 15psi, anyone know of a good dyno tuner in newy area to see where i can get the air to fuel ratio checked etc after the charger goes on? and also im thinking my tune may need to be changed after i change the pulley to a bigger because the tune is for 15psi from chiptourque.

    cheers mitch
