    Well after replying to threads and PMs posting the same thing over and over again, I figured it time to post up all the information about the sc14 spercharger in one spot. Ill update this thread with more info, but just post any questions you have here about them in regards to fitting, tuning, intercooling, etc.

    Hi again, Ok, ill get this thread started...

    Q: How much boost can a SC14 push on a 3.8L?

    Q: How much boost is standard?

    Q: How much are the replacement pullys and what boost do they deliver?

    1. depends on the pulley size
    2. 3 psi on a v6
    3 . $200-300. anywhere up to 12 psi

    1. If you use 3" intercooling would a 2.5" exhaust be restricting flow?
    2. What are the exact (close) measurements of pulleys to psi? (With Belmouth Removed :) )

    depends how much boost you run. if youre going 10 psi, the youd want a 3 inch exhaust. pulley size also depends on whether its intercooled or not

    a few people have dimensions for them but i dont know who. you can get crs to make them but they charge too much

    depends what boost you run
    3 psi - 1 bar tune with creamtop injectors 21lb/hr i think
    anything higher than 6 psi - l67 injectors (36lb/hr) and a 2 bar map sensor tune

    Stocky could you post up pictures of your tubing setup and someone else post up there ecotech setups. Im also curious as to how you ran your intercooling stocky im just at the point of getting them welded this week..(i hope). Im still interested in how and where all the piping runs and to where before i get lugs and connectors welded in.
