There is a little resistance and disbelief in what I've done so far and how I have it set up.
I think most members here that know me, or have been a member for longer than a year
or two will realize that everything I've done was well planned, and actually improved
performance. I've never made a false claim either. The vid you saw was in realtime.

It was compared to a very quick supercharged SLE with big exhaust mods and a 2.5"
pulley with a good intake. It was also compared to the only known 95 SSEi that had a
performance chip. It easily outperformed both cars from 15-100mph. (lower speeds were
not compared due to rain on the ground when I shot my vid, and where the other vids
began filming).

For the disbelievers or naysayers, I can tell you that this is real. I'm not stupid enough to
feed BS to the members here and then tell them how I did it so they can go out and not
get the same results.

Logan, this reply wasn't really directed at you. This is proven performance on my car
and on a flowbench by another member. Our two paths unwittingly (and without each
other'* knowledge) crossed paths recently and backed up each other'* findings. We
got a good laugh out of it when we finally compared notes.

Im sure this project will grow up by itself, so many Serie 1 L67 owner want to make them close to the serie II, people will join you and will help this project to be bullet proof (no KR, best flow etc...) and relatively cheap.

If i had the resource and knowledge i would love invest some time in that but its impossible for me right now. Pretty interresting tought

I can back Bill up on this all 100%
In three years i have paid ALOT of attention to what he has done, i remember when he gutted his stock air box
The car has gone leaps and bounds.
I have also spoke on the phone alot with Bill about ideas and bouncing basic findings and solutions back and fourth, no false claims ever made, if a mistake is made, its whoops, i guess that doesnt work, then its time to figure out WHY it doesnt work and go from there, build off of your errors, we all do it.
Three years ago on my first SSEi, i didnt know what a supercharger was.
I learned alot, just like anyone else here, no one was born with this info, it comes with trial and error.

So on a P&P LIM and */C...

'92-'93 */C with a 2.2" pulley - 10-11 lbs. of boost
'94-'95 */C with a 2.5" pulley - 9-10 lbs. of boost
''94-'95 */C with a 2.2" pulley - 11-12 lbs. of boost

This is really showing how much of a difference in performance their is in running a Gen 2 to a Gen 3 supercharger. I really don't think the boost #'* show the whole picture - not only is Bill flowing more but the charge is cooler.

Looking good!

Blazin, you and I both know the boost numbers mean jack. They're a point of comparison, but ultimately, indicated boost is bad. At least high numbers. It means you're not using it. If you improve the flow of the motor, and your boost numbers go down, that'* a good thing, and it shows the flow improvement worked.

As far as the flow and the temp, they go hand in hand. If you're going to improve one, you HAVE to go after both.

So.....Will it be neccesary for me to run water injection with this?

I've got a somewhat descent idea of what'* up your sleve....But like you said, you improve one you gotta do the other

To run a 2.2"? Probably not. But each car may respond differently to this. Just like some 92/93 cars can run with a 2.2" on a Gen2, others can't.

I'm running a 2.2" on a Gen3, so the odds are good for the rest of you.

So in theory I could run a 2.2 with out the injection, asuming good odds?
