No races, so sorry to disappoint you all, but last night I pulled the SC off my 95 to replace the noisy coupler. I ended up pulling the whole SC apart, cleaning the inside of the rotors department, cleaned the inlet of a lot of crud, took some 120 grit sand paper, then some 300 grit sand paper to the inlet....she'* not perfect (fingers can only get in 3-4, maybe 5 inches), but she'* definitely flowing more air smoothly.
Then I did the same to the TB. I only used 300 grit on here... again, a quick job, but after a bit it started to have an almost mirror finish.
Then I tackled the SC outlet.
Basically took the dremel and a diamond bit and smoothed the tiny 'V' and the '0'*. Again, not perfect, but a big improvement over the rough casting from the factory.
THEN I PUT THE SC GASKET IN SO AS NOT TO BLOCK THE SC OUTLET---> TO LIM INLET.
After it was done I took it for a spin. It idled high (right around 2k), but I thought maybe I'd left too much TB cleaner in the LIM as the SES light came on, but about 3 minutes of running the SES turned off, but the idle continued.
As for runability, the throttle is alot more responsive, the idle was a bit loapy, but the difference was in driving the car.
1st gear remained about the same power wise.
2nd gear definitely is smoother and a little more power, but WOAH, the real gain I noticed came after the shift into 3rd.
3rd gear is INSANE compared to before. I swear it feels like another 30-40 HP in 3rd gear. It is SOOO much more smooth (the engine really feels as smooth as a Series II L67 now) and the pull is crazy.
I had forgot the camera in my parents garage and this morning when I returned I found I'd left it on and the batteries are dead. But I have them in the charger now and later this afternoon I'll go get some vids.
All-in-all I wish I'd done this sooner. It was actually pretty damn simple now that I've pulled 4 SC'* in the past month and this is the 2 SC I've done light porting too (Travis got more porting and a better job).
I really can't wait to get the ported LIM and ported GEN III on my 99 with the other mods... I can hardly imagine.
:o Then in the spring, to go from the ported GEN III setup to the ported GEN V.........
Here are a couple pics... it was late and I didn't want to get done @ 5.30 AM again.
(I ended up putting the last tool away @ 12:10 AM, so not too bad IMO, but I didn't remove or do anything to the LIM except clean a bit of the residue out of the bottom of it).
