you could boost your fuel's octane with toluene or xylene.
just don't forget!

I'm not a fan of superchargers, but am a boost junkie that is familiar with raptor s/c (they started selling intercooled & non-intercooled S/C kits for ej cars a long time ago on RS25.com). I've turbo'd quite a few cars, here are some real life observations I've made on my turbo conversions - OP good luck on the s/c conversion!Ok...
So you are bound and determined to supercharge an engine with 10.7: 1 compression, and will not intercool the thing. I am assuming you've read Corky Bell's book where he talks about the intake charge reaching 1075 degrees F as a maximum during the compression stroke, otherwise damaging detonation will take place. Based upon the calculations that are talked about in his book, you can run about 4-5 psi without that intercooler max. That will give you more power, but probably not enough to justify the time, effort, and expense.
Well, hey man, that's cool- They are your pistons/cash to burn. Good luck-
Re: 2 Widebands I agree with you the more info you have the easier it is to catch & solve problems quickly.There is a large empty lot behind the shop. Dirt and grass. A LOT. Mud when it rains. Nothing like a dirty Subie.
The fog lights will stay. I am going to paint the grills to match the bumpers.
I will have to modify the actual bumper for the radiators and fan. It will be posted. The WTA intercooler will mount at the TB with heater hoses running to the stand alone radiator with cooling fan. Using a type13.
You'll see. Highly efficient cooling. .01 pressure loss.
I am only able to work on the car when I am not working with customers or doing diagnostics on their cars. Didn't do anything with it today except put more Subie parts in the cargo area.I looked @ your pics for the first time today & see the trans cooler...
Looks like you are making quick progress on the install, when do you think you'll be done with the install & start tuning?
