Default Start up with Supercharger

OK, Since I put the stock injectors back in so I could load it on and off the trailer for Knight Performance tuning I thought why not video it. So here is the car BEFORE tuning for the Supercharger. This way I know the belt runs true and no water leaks up to operating temps.

Rick congrats on the install and a great thread over the past week or so. I expect Knight Perf. (assuming they are as good as the recommendation you received) will be able to help you from here.

228/228 112 LSA right? If so, you're cam is just fine. The car is gonna be a BEAST after the tune. I'd think about a meth kit to keep the IAT's down in those hot summer months

It's killing me........but, it's not going to run well without 60# injectors and I'm afraid of a lean condition.

Patience....... besides, I got to fix more stuff after I get it back, fuel sending unit, and it looks like I may have an A/C leak somewhere. On top of that I noticed my Climate control is dim again, so the solder iron needs to come out once more.......

As I was once told in Bangkok in 1966 while on R&R, if you are worried honey just stick the tip in. We don't want to see the whole enchilada, just a taste, down the street. LOL
