I bet it will be closer to 1500-2000 when all is said and done. I am still waiting to see how they put those injectors in there.

Yeah,
I'm wondering about the injectors too...
There really reluctant to post pics.
The other issue that i'm worrying about is that the blower is run off the accessory belt.
WTF? i thought the snout was elongated so that the */c could be run of a seperate belt.
Now how'd they get that to work????

You are right, the SC is run off another smaller belt. Hmmm...

I kinda wonder if they put an inverted pulley on it? Thus the 4" pulley.
And if not I have the old 3.8" pulley from my SSEi yett to upgrade to.

if you have a 3.8 pulley you might want to hold on to it. Its value might go up alot pretty soon.

Inverted pulley?

i wouldnt raise the RPM without some valvetrain work. Valve float can be a B****.
From my experience, raising to 6k w/ stock valvetrain is no problem, moving up to 6300 with only LS6 springs is going to make valve float, and soon i'll find out if OR pushrods will cure the valve float at 6300.
all valve train is going to act diffrently acording to mileage and such so that'* why i said from my experience.
Forgot to mention that the valve train is to recieve some I-Win 1.9 rockers and oil resticted push rods. An electric water pump is in the wings too. As for the pulley I'll bet the idia of the reverse or special made pulley will be used on the cars SC. As to injector placement, I'm sure the key to getting this thing to work is a custom lower intake that has the ports for the injectors drill into it.

I would like to suggest porting your heads if your thinking of doing this so you can take full advantage of the increased air flow. Thicker head gaskets are not a bad idea as well, as they should help with compression by lowering it. Colder plugs will help too. There may be some other things as well but that the most that I got so far.

Oh yeah ..... Zoomer says that we may have the option of buying parts of the kit as needed to make it all work. So you should be able to buy the complete kit or just the parts that you need in order to do this mod.

On the rumor tip: This should be available sometime in January.

What if we just bought L67 pulleys -can't be all that much more -maybe $200 or less usign a good low mileage harmonic balancer.
I'm, sitting here waiting on this -cash set aside specifically for this project -and I even have a good chance of getting a Gen V from the Comp G that just was totalled out and is at the local body shop'* impound lot. They quoted me $400 for the charger and another $75 for the LIM.
