Can you guys post up some pics. Also fo rthe 99 and up guys where did you put your iat sensor?

I was gonna say....."Dayum".......you got that in fast but I see now. The IAT sensor should go in the tube before the throttle body. There is a place for it already drilled.

You don't have to mount the IAT sensor anywhere! You can just put it somewhere secure (so it doesn't flop around) and plug the hole in the intake tube.

Nice, is the v8 setup the same as a v6? If not, does this help? :uhh:

Oh, may be he has an 8, I don't know.

edit: Silly noob 8 owner, he has a v6. So your post is worthless. :lol:

cant someone fab tubing for the aftercooler to work on a 6?
Nope...not near enough room. The aftercooler's length is as long as or longer than the discharge length from the blower to the intake. I researched it back when I had a vortech.

Pictures were the 8. He's just showing off :D

LSU has a six.

You didn't specify, just asked for vortech pictures :p


and yes I'm showing off, no I'm not a noob.


the ait sensor is in the elbow after the MAF for me, I got a custom elbow and punched a 3/8" hole in there for the sensor

Hey, new guy here...

got a few questions. ran into some money, and looking at adding a Vortech V-1 supercharger kit to the V6 (its a 98)...

what type of injectors are the stock injectors? I am unclear if new ones come with the kit. Assume I dont install the kit, will simply increasing the injectors help performance and fuel economy? what size is the stock MAF diameter? should this be increased also? Will roller rockers really improve the HP +10?<-- I kinda doubt it. lastly, there is a T-Lock bolt on (I think), for a 7.3 end. if I purchase this, do I also need the friction modifier? http://www.speedconcepts.net/product_info.php?products_id=400

*94-98 have 14# injectors
*99-04 have 21# injectors
*stock maf is 70mm (I believe-correct me if wrong). Physical size isn't important, it's the voltage range on the MAF. Go with an 80mm lightning MAF. It's a ford part and easy to work with for tuners.
*roller rockers is debatable. I've never seen dyno data to give you an accurate answer
*Most people pay to have a t-lok put in because they get gears at the same time. Gears aren't something you want to tackle on your own. You will want friction modifier.
*Read the sticky above for great information on supercharging.
