Hey, getting ready to buy this vortech kit for my 03 gt 92k miles. I really cant afford to blow the engine but I have heard that it is safe to run the 8lb instead of the 6lb. Any thoughts? Also what gauge pods do you guys use/like for 2 gauges. My interior is dark gray.

Thanks, Ryan

Dunno what he said, but 10 psi will be safe. get a Boost gauge and a Wide band Air/fuel gauge.

So you think 8psi on a vortech not cooled would be safe?
Yes it will be safe, but it will be safer with one. I currently run 7lbs with no intercooler and my average IATS are ~120-130. Depending on weather, on cold days I see 110 or so. But I plan on upping the boost to around 10-12 lbs and installing the intercooler in my closet.
