Day 2814 “Supercharged Shopping”

Since its income tax time I figured it was best to try to get everything I need to start and finish installing the Supercharger. First few things came in. Should be more in the upcoming days.

These are a couple of the required gauges and a dual pod adapter that would go on the pillar. Not certain I’m going to use the pillar adapter but I have it for reference in case I want to do that. My first plan is to 3d print a defrost vent cover and now incorporate the gauges.

 

 

The gauges are Glowshift. They have mixed reviews but they were cheap enough to justify trying them. One is a Wideband with the ability to input into my HPtuners software.

 

 

The only aesthetic concern is one is tinted and one is not. I had to get the tinted one for the Wideband because it was the only version with Wideband. The boost I could have gotten in tinted, which I may still do, but I could spend double the money on that version without vetting them out first. I looked at AEM Widebands and Autometer but I didn’t like the appearance of them so I made the gamble with these.

 

 

The parts shelf was missing a few major components such as pushrods, springs and lifters. I went ahead and got a low profile valve cover breather, LS1 retainers, and an oil volume kit. I’ve got more on the way. I don’t know if I’ll install the double roller before I start the SC mods or not. I’m not sure when I’m going to park the car but when the weather get warm you will be seeing more posts.

    1. As have I. This will happen soon lol. I have a private shop with a lift about 3 miles from the house. I have to plan out the build. I’m going to have to pull the motor again just to fix a few leaks and get it cleaned up. I think i’m going to look at repainting or maybe polishing parts. I haven’t decided on everything.
