It's a shame... as your thread is one of the more interesting ones at PFF, but your images are so pixelated and blurry.

We're allowed to post images here with file sizes as large as 300 KB. Some of your image file sizes are as low as 41 KB.

Are you shooting those images at the highest resolution that your phone allows? If so, are you re-compressing them to death before you upload and post them?

Thanks, I think I've found one here in Denver with low miles at a good price, I can see a set of 180 degree headers feeding twin turbos, should sound just evil...

The tensioner really should be on the slack side of the belt. The belt tension while trying to pull the supercharger under full boost will pull the tensioner back and cause the belt to slip or be thrown.

I have decided to not stack the head gaskets after talking to a member over at motorgeek he has supercharged his 4.2 engine and runs 10 pounds of boost through a intercooler and said he sees about 8 pounds at the manifold and has not had any detonation problems he said he is making just over 400 horsepower so i figure with the use of the water / methanol injection i should be fine with the 15 pounds of boost and should be making 550 plus HP just enough to have fun

Is he running 10 pounds on bone stock, never opened internals? If so, good news. You've got me really liking this swap. Keep plugging away.

i took all the plugs out of the engine i bought a few week back and did a leak down test and its not good so i pull the head on 1 side and there it is water in one of the cylinders and rusty mud on the top of the piston in another so i dry them out and clean them up then i turn the crank bringing the piston to bottom dead center and there it is pitted cylinder at least a 1/16 inch deep so i call the bone yard i bought it from and send them a picture and thank god they are good they are sending me another engine i bet they check this one out better before they send it

What a fracking pain in the azz, your not having the best of luck with the 4.2, hope the replacement is good.

i just ordered Injector bungs so i can use the more common 14 mm injectors and i ordered up some injectors i plane on having the engine all in and running by the end of January but i don't think i will have the water / methanol injection on so i wont be running it to much and i wont bring it into boost

Merry Christmas.

1. That is a *LONG* belt

2. That idler bracket may not be stiff enough to maintain enough belt tension to drive the blower. Keep an eye on that if you find yourself fighting belt slip or not making as much boost as you should be.
