Parts should be here tomorrow.

I skipped the PCM for now to see how the car likes the 3.4.

Engine should also be up and running by saturday.

sucks I sold my camcorder on ebay to buy the aeroforce though.

I'm guessing it will be a lot faster with just a 3.4. I may stop there but we'll see.

If I do rockers I'm gonig to have to dump around $1500 in the car to get the supporting mods.

I'm hoping to be around low 14s when I run it this year at the track. we'll see.

I want to try a 3.3 or 3.2 with race gas too.


I'm also thinknig about getting the LIM polished and ported along with the INLET and OUTLET of the SC along with some TB work..need to talk to my machine shop buddy to see if he can do it..I'm worreid about him screwing it up though.

Port match the SC to the LIM? I've never heard of that. It seems to me that it'* not necessary, considering the outlet of the SC is so much smaller than the inlet of the LIM, and it just blows in there.

In the most basic terms, it connects the nosedrive/shaft to the rotors and provides some "give" to absorb some shock to the supercharger, as opposed to a direct connection between the two.

As they get old, the holes tend to "egg" out and rattle.

In addition to Bob'* answer above, it is a flexible piece that keep the shock-load of a quick stab at the throttle from damaging the components inside the supercharger. Think of it as a shock absorber for quick accelleration.
