By the way the PVC is positioned I doubt it will fit under the intake tube. You will have to route some new lines from both sides.

SUCK! Some chrome valve covers would be cool. Would the factory ones stand the heat of getting them chrome powder coated? I think they cook 'em in 450o fareinheit ovens.

Yes, our valve covers will withstand the temp of powdercoating. Magnesium melts at around 1100-1200, far above the PC temps of 350-400.

Here's an example of "chrome" powder. Except for the black parts, all parts have been clear powder coated also. It's necessary for the clear because the chrome won't do very well in the long run around chemicals.

oh wow.... i didn't know what the damn thing looked like by itself.... hah i am a smart one. I was arguing with my friend about this earlier but, isn't the SC a blower and not really a SC because it is a root's type? Cause that's what he was saying and i said it's still a super charger.... he says "you can intercool a SC, you can't intercool what's on the supercoupe's"

Thanks. It has a neat look to it in person, the pics don't do it justice. Kind of looks like clear anodized aluminum.

A "blower" is any belt-driven unit, be it Roots or Paxton or Vortech or...they can all be intercooled. Super Coupes are intercooled from the factory.

ahhh i see i see.... so there isn't any way to make the stock SC superchargers produce less boost than what they do? Don't they have a waste gate where it can be adjusted? Also, what are the specifics on the stock SC supercharger... like who makes it and what model/type is it, as much info as you can give me.... i wanna have something to back me up next time i get into an arguement about this :-D

eaton makes the supercharger...you could get a custom larger pulley made for less boost...a motor with highly ported heads and intakes and free flowing exhaust will also result in less boost...
