Tom

Just curious, why are you switching and what is on the car now?

I have a SC trim (or T Trim, i called vortech today, and they says that according to the s/c serial number, it's a t-trim, but on the s/c plate it says sc trim... i should mesure the inlet :) )
the kit is an rgm kit...

i'm not happy with it, i have the car for a half of a year, and i have replaced 2 belts.

i have he smallest s/c pulley, and i'm boosting only 0.5 bar. and the car is not strong enough for me...

so i'm going for a more radical setup :)

One half bar is 14.7 x 0.5 = 7.35 psi

That's not bad considering that many systems run only 6 psi but I can understand wanting more. You will need an intercooler for higher boost.

I had a T trim on my Viper, went to a JT blower with an intercooler, pulled 10psi with a 1.75 pully.

I allready have an intercooler...

a relatively small one, but still, an intercooler :)

I think that i'll go for a custom made manifold...
the only aftermarket one i've found requires replacing an engine mount - i don't want vibrations on my car :)

Tom,i heard that Guy from Hadera can do some custom manifold in great quality.
Try to talk to him....and hell yea, your BMW will fly,if you put a Turbo in it.

I know your car for long time and it definitly awesome,even with the current S/C

Put an intercooler, and a larger Crank pulley on it.

why are you replaceing belts? are they slipping, or straight up, breaking.
