    Default My F1X Procharger Build

    I just thought I would share some pics of my F1X Procharger on my G8. We did a race cog setup.

    We had to do a little bit of trimming and we also fabricated new motor mounts so we could lower the motor.

    It's up and running. We are just taking our time upping the boost. We are making only 17 psi. Running 9.88 at 143 mph.
    This is a big blower so it's lazy down low for now. We need to be running at least 25 psi to start really using the F1X.

    What's the build? This looks like a fastest G8 every build.

    Just a quick update. Everything was going ok then we had the balancer spin on the crank. We fixed it for SCT OKC. We came in 2nd place in the rwd roll racing class. The car was trapping 147 with the balancer spinning. Then we noticed we were losing boost and running rich. The balancer shearded again and spun.

    The car ran 9.80's easy with a 1.795 60 ft.

    We have to add a third fuel pump.

    Right now we have the motor out and putting in a new crank. We are going to do a rebuild on the motor while it's out.

    We will be making around 1100 ish to the wheels. We are still leaving soft for right now because of the stock camaro diff and stock
    G8 axles. We are making plenty of power to go low 9.30's. We should be trapping around 150 mph pretty easy.

    We lowered the motor a bit and it fits fine.
