Chris C Vectra supercharger build

Discussion in 'Supercharger' started by chris_carpenter, July 13, 2016.

  1. i thought i would start thread on my go at a supercharger build

    i will start with the my idea of what i want i am not after huge power numbers just want it have little more under the hood so i am work to the very bottom of the scale

    so to start with the strip down
    ascontent_lhr3_1.xx.fbcdn.net_v_t1.0_9_13627059_10153752987562f0c6d9039c7e284b1bfa385764c6bfcd.

    a test fit to see what needs to be adjusted
    ascontent_lhr3_1.xx.fbcdn.net_v_t1.0_9_13680871_101537529876675c81ca7c0ae159190f96c44b3f4e4fb5.
    so i trimmed back the rad fan cover as it was hitting the TB and the air con system got ripped out it never worked anyway and extended the loom

    the water pipe in the left took some thinking about and went to round the side of the pulley
    using two pipes just need a joining section to put them together

    i need to make a bracket to hold the senor on the top of the manifold

    ascontent_lhr3_1.xx.fbcdn.net_v_t1.0_9_13600327_101537529874324f1e36dd815ac339f929167059e3b638.
    have used new hose to do all the air pipes

    [​IMG]
    and added to the main inlet pipe sensor and brake servo


    any major things i have missed so far shout up i am here to learn

  2. Looking very nice so far mate (y)

    I have a sc mapped ecu for the vectra b if you are interested? Is a CS stage 2 and comes with pulley, chip, transponder and mapped to 250bhp

    Also have a full dual pass charge cooler set up ready just to bolt on all hoses complete (y)
     
  3. Interesting not sure if stage 2 is to much for me but pm me prices just I case I change my mind
     
  4. Your sc pulley doesn't look standard. Do u know the size? Just for reference me and another lad on here are running 3.0 pulleys and we run 260. Also for the map sensor have u got the the sc one from cs as u can't use standard map sensor, If u have just take the red rubber grommet off at the end apply some tape to widen it then reapply the grommet. My map sensor is secured in with a bolt and washer I'll take a pic of mine to show u how easy it is.

  10. That looks like the standard map sensor, mine is different to that one, also that pulley looks smaller than 3" is that tape measure hooked on the pulley? Looks like a 2.9"
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  11. It was hooked on the pulley just looks off on the pic
    What is the difference between the 3 and 2.9 bar its 0.1 lol
     
  12. Going off the part number on the sensor it's the standard one. Not the one u can use in sc setup
     
  13. Smaller the pulley more boost it will run.

    Standard cobalt ss one is 3.35" and runs 11-12psi

    Courtenay stage 2 is 3.4" iirc and runs 9psi
     
  14. Thank you


    It might be me I might have left the original on I will check my box of bits in the boot

  15. Well today I found a issues
    The TB dose not seem to fit the supercharger
    Is there supposed to be adapting plate or something
     
  16. I have the spacer but the bolt pattern dose not line up

    And not I have not got the LSJ one should I have ???
     
  17. When I got my kit for the US it came with the lsj tb did your sc come with a tb when u bought it or are u using your standard tb?
     
  18. No tb with it so using the standard one
