*No you can not use the engine cover still as the relocation of power steering up and the intake will be in the way..

*And i drove from MS to VA lol

thanks for chiming in. I know there's a few of us that are interested. can u take more pics of the final assembly please. trust me your build has all our heads spinning lol. I know member DRrick wanted to ask you a few questions as I spoke to him on the phone recently.

if we relocated the power steering and used a different coupler and piping I'm hoping to still use the engine. cover. kinda would like to keep the cover for my engine theme.

how does the car run and drive with the splitsec on a daily normal drive?

thanks again.

Power Steering could be relocated to wherever you choose due to limited spacing but im sure it could be done with the engine cover

I drive the car every day to and from work. With the SplitSec it is an older piggyback type but it operates just fine. It takes a good tune to get it to act properly but i have no major complaints. having a nice boost gauge and air intake gauge helps a lot since i am still auto tranny ..for now. but yep. stay tuned. :P

I will try to upload a few more pictures later during the week.

I dont want to let all the secrets out the hat but i do plan on going with a manual tranny and getting a smaller pulley (= more boost) but you definetly would be fine with 6psi on stock internals just make sure you have a good serpentine pulley and what not. This info is only if you go with the Rotrex setup of course as i can NOT speak on any other supercharger setup. lol

still thinking about the whole thing but yes I would go with your exact setup but I think livauto wanted to change a few things .

You can always send me pics via Pm or email.
