Oh and about the water injection....ya that sucks. :(

When I have more time, I'll look into the possibility of relocating it to the lim but off hand I can't see where.

I am hoping to gain more than the benefit of the water injection with the new Blower. ....but the water injection could give me even more.

Paul...L36 is the NA version :P

On that "extra" bolt.. pop your hood. the M90 has a version of that bolt going straight down through.

How about a couple more inside pics of the inlet. I'm quite interested how my porting matches that inlet design.

Paul, post-rotor is actually the more common WI location. Get creative!

(and while you're at it, put two holes in, so you can put a post-rotor temp sensor in).

You do NOT want to gasket match the intake unless you also do the heads otherwise you will create a turbulence spot where the air hits the head and probably lose performance.

Todd, I have a hard time believing the Series 2 is any different in that regard than the Series 1. Considering our head ports are identical height and width, and we have the same mismatch from the factory.

The mismatch is random. It'* a function of rough sand-casting the part. Port-matching made a profound difference on my SSEi and a bone-stock 1994SSEi as a test subject. Improved top-end power.

We might have to break this out into another topic, but this is a good one to discuss.

Let me add... when i did a bit of porting recently. I matched to the size of the head.

Measure head. Measure intake..

Don't worry, I am not going overboard with the porting.
Before I do any grinding I will be removing my Gen III and carefully measure the head ports.
As long as I keep the inlet slightly smaller than the head port opening, there won't be a lip to create turbulence.
If anything, smoothing and slight grinding will really decrease turbulence.

Drawing attention to the nose shaft button. I don't know how to change the pulley without using the pilot hole in the end of the shaft.

So I ask again......how do you use the pulley puller, if the end of the shaft does not have a pilot hole to act as a centering aid
