That breather with the shielded cap (keeps oil from spraying on the SC, not really a heatshield) came from AZ. Driverjohn has one exactly like it now, but his is still chrome.

Plug wires before were Taylors (red) and sucked. See my 'wires wires' post in gen chat. The wires I took off the Zilla most recently were gray, but the Belden'* have the biggest rep around here for quality now, so I went with what works. I may loom them soon, but I'll have to cut pieces to fit perfectly.

So what are you doing with the supercharger. the 95/93 hybrid or a regular supercharger. Also wouldn't it have been easier just to put in a full 1995 supercharger then the hybrid. Not that I'm knocking you or anything I just don't understand the benefits of all this work.

you he would have needed a AFC because of the different TB/ MAF tables....and the 93 TB and Bill ported is better than the 95 anyways

Correct. To fully swap in a 94/95 SC, I would need an AFC calibrator. Those are expensive and sometimes troublesome.

With my Jet PCM and the adjusted MAF tables, I believe I can build a hybrid SC, keep my stock (now ported) TB, MAF, and not need an AFC calibrator, but still flow the same as a 94/95 conversion.

why do you need a AFC with the newer SC? Is it because of the TB change?

Partly because the TB is a larger diameter, partly because the MAF sensor and MAF tables are different in the PCM, partly because of the higher VE of the epoxy coated rotors.

Tonight is O2 sensor, tighten downpipe, remove hitch, fuel conditioner and run the fuel through the fuel rail, drain 'flushing' oil, refill.

Tomorrow is finish SC, install it, fuel rail, injectors, alternator, vacuum lines, and belts. Then we test fire and idle.
