I found out yesterday that for me a 3.2 is way too small for the street. I was hitting upwards of 4.9KR from 30-100mph. Once I put the 3.3 on I didn't see anything higher than 1.3 and today I punched it on the way home from work and saw between .3 - .7KR

I'm gonna do some runs at the track in a couple weeks with race fuel and see if the 3.2 helps or hurts.

Also, on the ZZP MPS pulley did you route the belt across the middle so there is one ridge on each side of the pulley? I heard ZZP'* need to be in the middle and INTENSE'* all the way to the right (towards the nose).

Keep us posted on the results of running the 3.2.
Yes, I installed the ZZP MPS with the belt in the center with one ridge on either side. It was obviously right even by eye.

Every time I see that engine bay I have to go get a rag to wipe up my drool.

So what mods, besides the pulley, have you done since your last trip to the track?
What is you KR reading with the 3.4? Done a scan yet with the 3.3? What are you seeing for boost levels now? 13-14 psi?

Looks very nice...

2 questions....

1. The shiney stuff... is that lots of heat shielding around the bay?
2. What'* the strips on the alternator and SC? Some type of temp metre?

No other mods. Limited Slip diff and INTENSE PCM (**with Torque management removed)on the way and I get the new boots tomorrow.
0 KR
Don't know with the 3.3 but I can feel a seat of the pants difference and the boost gauge now goes to 10 psi. With the 3.4 it only went to 9 psi.

1. Yes. I am a "keep it cool" fanatic.

2. Yes. Temp strips like on fish tanks. I use them everywhere. They are very accurate and last about 1 year. It'* a chemical reaction that makes them change color to indicate temp. Only about .50 ea. You buy them in packs of 25 and they come in all ranges and sizes.

I was going to give you a smart *** reply until I read Martin'* reply.

On all my autos, I have one on the rear differential/transmission, oil pan, heads, alternator, air intake, carb heat shield, radiator and interior.

If something changes, I know there'* a problem right away.

I always park the vehicles in a heated garage with the hoods open.
