R32 Stage 4 Supercharger Reborn....The Final Fantasy....

R32 Supercharger project number 2
OK, I just bought a used VF Stage 4 s/c kit minus the cams..call it Stage 3 if you wish.
I’m looking for ways to get the most out of this setup and that brings me to this thread, so let’s get going.
1. Software, who makes a flexable tune that could easily adapt to the following parts:
a. Stock R32 intake manifold
b. CAMS (Grind to be determined) I need help on this one please!!!
c. Super-sprint headers
d. Race test pipe
e. Stock muffler setup including resonator
f. Vortec V2 S trim blower @ 12-14 PSI
g. Air/Water charge-cooler setup
h. High flow fuel pump
i. Bigger fuel injectors (500cc or larger)
j. Possible water/meth (Map based)
L. 928M, 5 Angle CNC machined impeller

2. CAMS, what cams could I get to make the car breath better, what are the best cams for forced induction, What grind do you recommend?
3. V2 pulley size, can I safely reduce that by one size, it’s now 3.7 inches. If so where can I get one that’s 8 rib?
4. Air/water cooler, any suggestions, it will be located in place of the battery & air box. IM looking for low loss, but not too pricy.
5. Flexible and Rigid Boost tubing, where to buy it? The route will be out of the V2, in front of the rad support over and down to the lower left opening, then up by the battery hold down after I make a hole, then into the cooler, out of the cooler into the stock intake, blah blah……I will need recommended sizes, sources to get the tubing, metal or plastic, etc.
6. Boost tubing insulation, I need some for the engine bay, where can I get it?
7. More to come later with pics………………….

Good luck Bill http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I know you were determined to stay S/C and still make the power so let's see how it goes.
1) As far as tuning goes, I'd definitely go to C2 or unitronic and drop the $$$$ for a custom dyno/road tune. Mike [email protected] and [email protected] are two of the best in the business, can't go wrong either way. It'll cost you a bit more than an off the shelf tune, but you'll make gobs more power.
2) A blower isn't going to give you low end grunt. Unless you wanted to fit a roots type blower, which would be amazing, but epicly expensive. I'd stay just stick with the car's strong suit of top end power. Grab some TT 264's and be good to go http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
3)I have no clue, you'll have to calculate blower speed at the RPM you'll be turning(7200rpm redline) and see if a smaller pulley is within the design limits of the blower.
4) Air water, again no specific recommendation. I'd say a core with custom end tanks is probably your best bet here.
5) For charge piping, I would again go custom. This will allow you to use whatever material you see fit (aluminum or stainless), and choose the exact route and piping size. Personally, if you were going to run A/W intercooling, I'd do like HPA did, and clock the blower so the outlet faces the back of the car. Delete the coolant res, relocate the power steering res, and then run the charge piping around the back side of the motor. It'd require you to get a short runner intake, but clones of the old HPA mani can be had for as cheap as 500$ on ebay.de.

You are correct slacken, 427 was the out of the box 2WD dyno for this kit... I however plan on quite a bit more from my AWD dyno...My goal is at least 450 AWD HP

Thanks

Good luck man. You are the SC guru. Thanks for the advice on my wimpy Stage II. Maybe someday I can go Stage II.5 with C2. lol Definitely going to watch this project.

Re: FV-QR (newcreation)

Okay so in reference to the "forgotton" thread and using a cogged setup, I noticed the setup you are running that powers the charger is cogged. How will this effect belt life?

Re: R32 Stage 4 supercharger reborn....The final fantasy.... (vwgeorge2)

Update #1
Finally cut out the VF resister in the MAF extention, no going back to VF/GIAC software ever again. The software worked, but my current software is way better! I cant wait for my stage 4+ software....


Next I wrapped the MAF line with flexable EMI shielding to prevent unwanted signals crossing over onto my ECU. The shielding is soldered and terminated just below the battery tray, this should keep any EMI at bay...


Then taped it all back up for proper fit and finish...


Re-installed the usless air box containing my power steering reservoir, and yes this will be moved once again to accomadate the huge Air/Water charger cooler...


Lastly a pic of my dirty axx R32, yes it will be cleaned up by H2O...



OK, that's all for today...More to come

The cogged plan has been scrapped!!! As long as I stay with a V2 charger I should be fine with its big 8 rib belt. I may look into a crank pulley size reduction if I can find one, this is further down the road though.

Good to hear. I'm really looking forward to seeing the outcome of this project http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I've had my 8 rib belt in for 13K and have never had to touch it. You don't need a cogged belt. It will be changed at 15K for maintenance but that's it. HPA has done a tune for me but I haven't had a chance to run it yet due to a clutch problem. Clutch is fixed so it should be soon. Good luck with it and let's talk at H20. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Crank-9


hey, its my old motor! seeing that pic makes me miss my old R. Its good that you arent going with the cogged belt because you will not have any belt life with it. It was absolutely necessary for me since I was pushing 20psi but it would not last very long at all. But for the week or two that it did last, I had this to play with
