like the subject says i bought that version of head unit. now i also have bought the bracket for it 2004 GT. oil feed and oil drain lines. whats next?

i want to use a BOV

im looking to be around 370-390 rwhp because shes still a DD and i don't want to kill my engine (84k)

now what can i expect from this head unit? anyone here with personal experience? what are the main differences with the s and t trims?

the next couple things ill be buying are my fuel upgrades and MAF any particular brands or actual item work best with our 2V's? like for instance ford racing injectors my best bet? im sure they know what they're doing lol vs venom or something else? was going with the SVT focus pump possibly, but i figured i would ask you guys and gather opinions.

Also i want the loudest damn BOV i can get so thats big red right ?

what other piping do i need to complete my install?

Do you plan on getting an intercooler also? Or are you going to run a non intercooled kit? For the bov I recommend tial 50mm. So damn loud!

A member here pushed this unit to 598 rwhp with supporting mods @17psi as far as expectations and long term capabilities. Congrats on the purchase and good luck with the continuation of the build!

whats the pros of intercooled? i see small gains when doing it better for the unit? or engine? now all i have is the bracket oil feed/drain so no discharge or whatever you would have if you werent intercooled. would it be cheaper to just go intercooled? doesnt that mean taking my bumper and so forth off?

looks like you have a S trim how long have you had it? you like it? considered doing that t-trim upgrade?

It will cost more to go with an intercooler. But with an intercooler you can run more boost safely and keep the air cooler. Look up cxracing. They sell kits will all the piping and intercooler and decent prices.

Theres my old thread. Check it out I posted a few videos. Thats with the tial 50mm BOV.

Wicked just kinda summed it up on the intercooler situation. I have had my kit on for going on 3 years but im running low boost on it and I barley run my car in the summer time and when i go to increase the power instead of increasing the boost (which in returns creates more heat) I will be going with blower cams to increase my power so I still may hold off on getting an intercooler. Im only seeing about 6-7 psi right about now and my car only gets driven like once or twice a week if that and I don't hot lap it at the track when I do put it out there.

I love the kit so far in the city and on the highway even on the 2000+ mile round trips I take in the car sometimes from Tx to GA I have no complaints at all about it.

I like my S-trim. Ive had it about 5 years had to rebuild it once but it was because the belt broke and f'd up the bearings. Instead of t-trim Ive heard nothing but good things about the 928motorsports s-trim upgrade. Check em out.

blow off valve just sounds cool and is more for longevity of your motor. No real performance advantages or disadvantges until you run higher boost. Also I didnt read how much boost you plan to run but Id go with 42# injectors. Thats what I have with 12#s of boost,however I have a 4v.

See that's it I have no clue I just want 380-390 rwhp. What would I need as far as pulley, injectors, and fuel pump? Perhaps a boost a pump too?

You will also need the wiring harness adapters for those injectors.

Yeah those plug and play plastic looking adapters I saw them on AM. What fuel pump is the best I see people say like walbro or something like that or would the svt focus the best bet. Sorry for tons of questions I just know there's plenty of people who run centris on this site and want to get it done right the first time around. I have about 15 hundred dollars left for my centri budget after the head units subtracted

SVT Focus pumps have a hit and miss record. I'm running one without a BAP without any problems but others have had to put a Boost-a-Pump wiring harness on theirs. If I had it to do all over again I'd buy the Kurgan 340 lph pump and never have to worry about it again. It wasn't available when I was putting in my supercharge or else I'd be running it.
