Is it just mocked up or have you fired it up yet?

When you get it working properly make sure you go over to TeamSwift and prove them wrong. Some of those guys were giving you a pretty hard time about the FMU.:D

very professional installation. Looks good. Specs?
Engine is a 1.6 16V Esteem engine, Supercharger is an Eaton M45 from a MB 230 Kompressor, intrcooler came from a Cooper S (M45 too), FMU is a Begi, BTM is a Vortech and the BOV is a Turbo XS.

I am putting a bigger pulley because with a 1.2:1 was not even able to reach 1 psi!!! I will try with a 2:1 pulley end this week.-

I fired out but the stock pulley was too big that I had to make a bigger one. Hope to try again this WE.

Yes, that discuss was very deep, but with a clutched S/C the FMU should have an advantage when SC is off over a piggy back or standalone unit-

Get looking set-up!!! Looks Top Notch
Can I get a shot at your air inlet to your intercooler. I see you cut a nice hole on the hood. How about a view from the top. I've been contimplating mounting an intercooler in that location as well. I've been thinking a front mount is just doomed to get whacked off. I've also noticed the mitsu eclipse and 3000gt have the inner fender mounted type. I've been thinking about that with a scoop similar to the TD samurai overseas.

how much boost? I was worried when I saw the intercooler - it makes whatever boost you have more effective - and usually means more than 10 psi. What did you try? how much?

I run 10psi only for a couple of times, then reduce the pulley to 145mm and kill it at 7psi.

I am actually running under 5psi of boosting and revs pretty well.

Y tested at 12.000ft and also boost 5 psi (over a lower atm pressure) and the difference is huge with it off.
