I have good news and bad news. Well here it is, all done. Actualy I am just kidding, about the bad news, it only made 363 RWHP but it did it on a E Trim with five pounds boost, so bare with me so I can explain.

What I have done here is make a kit that basically bolts in place, I believe I only had to put 4 riv nuts in two places for the Maf, and PS pump reservoir any one else would have use self taping screws, this kit has a huge heat exchanger that bolts to existing factory screws, it has a large capacity coolant reservoir and high volume pump, I just got back from Atlanta after tuning it yesterday, on FIVE POUNDS boost the car made 363 RWHP and 348 foot pounds of torque with a 12.0 straight A/F. http://web.iwebcenters.com/reinhartautomotive/images/03marauder.jpg

So it will have two versions of this kit, one with the E Trim blower with 3.61 stock pulley 363 RWHP or a S Trim with a 3.48, Nine to Ten pounds boost, the S trim will make 450 RWHP and still be totally safe.

Today it was 93 degrees out the intake air temp never got above 103 degrees you cannot get much better than this, at 65/70 mph the car averaged 21.6 MPG with 4:30 gears, I a very happy with my results, I will post the other dyno sheets later this week,

Here is picture of the Gauges the green LED comes on when the after cooler pump is running, also I took the ambient air temperatures sensor that's normally in front of the grill, and put that in the pipe going to the Throttle body, so you can actually see the inlet air temp entering the motor, from the A/C controll panel, as you see it it says 98 degrees. I will post more later this week, I am waiting on the S Trim.

Looks very nice! Put some black hose on there to replace the blue & it would look factory-installed. :D
Always cool to see something a little different... :salute

I'm curious though, how are you planning to get around the higher compression of the '03 4V?
Pull lots of timing and/or add extra fuel?

Here are the new dyno numbers on a E trim it made 363 RWHP on five psi I just did a S trim witha 3.48 seeing 9psi it made 432 and we still need to lean it out and add some more timing. I am confident it will make 450 and run low 12's it has 4:30's my Mark 8 ran 11.7 at 118 with 450 to the tires.

If you did this conversion on a car..........how many miles would you prefer on the engine so it has been run in and a ball park figure?
