    if your stock clutch was still good you would be fine on the stage 3 kit, im on a similar pieced together kit but my tune is conservative, i had some slippage at 1st but i took it easily and the clutch holds the power fine


    u dont need the oversized tensioner pulley, just get the stg 2 belt(shorter belt) and i say go with 60s and 2.9-2.7 whatever u plan to do power wise

    if u have someone custom tuning you thats good as well, most of the time when you add the 2nd heat exchanger the water pump goes out, so add a new water pump to your list(about $100)

    just some information

    yea its by the fuse box, right in front. yes they will load a canned tune on to your pcm or they will load a tune on a new one and you send yours back to them. this is where a custom tune with some hands on datalogging would be better for you.

    u could maybe get ahold of Steve Flint he is a tuner and data logs on a dyno instead of in the streets.

    the endplate is apart of the dual pass i believe, helps to lower your iat2s faster after u do a pull, so it doesnt heat soak. keeping the supercharger cool means more power

    intake air temps, there is 1 & 2, 1= pre intake and 2 = post intake

    iat2s are important to monitor as they let you know how hot your running or how cold. has nothing to do with engine temp or coolant temp

    say u are cruising at 80degrees iat2s and do WOT from a 40mph roll and let off at say top of 3rd your temps will jump to 120-140 tops and once you get back to cruising the temps will be 80 again.

    depending on mods will net you those results. like opt b and dual pass and 2nd heat exchanger, outside temperatures will affect IAT2s too

    if its 67degrees the iat2s should be about 13-20degrees higher so say 80 degrees. cooler air better temps, more powerrAAAA hahaha
