Some random supercharger questions

Post by scvibe04 » Fri Jul 06, 2018 6:10 pm

Hey guys, just have a few random questions on my mind before I install a used sc on my 04 vibe base. I already bought the correct plugs and thermostat, and replaced the cone oil. Just wondering if you are running a cai, what setup is the best? Also, if you have a boost gauge, which one do you have and how do you wire it in? And what kind of mileage are you getting with the supercharger and running premium fuel? I’m really excited to install it, just might be a few weeks until I have time to do it.

Don't waste time on CAI get an SRI and they'll run with no issues. Boost Gauge is simple either basic Analogue Gauge or electronic. I HIGHLY suggest an AFR gauge. Yea it's $200 but if something it's working right it'll let you know before blowing up the engine. MPGs drop isn't much, all depending how you drive it.
