    Is that similar to the Vortec superchargers for the 350Z and G35? Idea is that it goes beside the engine rather than on top right?

    And what constitutes being a "volunteer?"

    There's no fixed price yet but it should go for around $3.5K

    Update:
    Done with the piggy back fuel controller for the VX!!! I'm trying to make a plug and play solution right now with no ECU wire splicing.

    SuperCharger kit for 3.2 / 3.5 Ltr GM Engine

    Well, I was poking around on the web (nah, I don't crawl.... haha) and gues what I found in the North-Western Island called "Australia"?

    You guessed it - A SUPERCHARGER KIT

    (see below)
    The quoted power (185kW / = 250Hp) is based on the lesser 6VD1 from the Trooper, factory rated at 142kW = 190Hp)
    That's a 60Hp increase, meaning that your 6VE1 would max out at about 270-ish HP or 200kW for us metricans.
    Damn - that's close to the max rating for the auto-trans!

    CHECK about the re-tuning of the PCM/ECU to suit the Pressure vs. Vacuum and the extra injector

    Worth checking out...

    Looks like JDM Monkey hasn't been on since Feb. I wonder if he is still playing with his VX. Since I am thinking about doing my own mid mounted turbo kit, I would LOVE to hear some of his details.

    AEM FIC piggy-back engine management appears to be powerful enough to give us everything we need!

    Some comments about lag, were the original CATs still used on this system? If so, they could have been a MAJOR contributor of this lag! You really shouldn’t have CATs before the turbo! Now, it isn't 100% legal to move it after the turbo ether, but lets face it, most of us will not have to deal with CARB .

    While you could get away without an intercooler (under 10 psi), it can still help you! With intercooler, you will be able to ether run lower octane gas and/or run more aggressive timing. So I wouldn't dismiss it "just because you can".

    I think that engine management is THE most important part of well executed turbo/supercharger system. I think I will start by installing AEM FIC, wideband O2 sensor and larger injectors, BEFORE I actually install a turbocharger. Learn how to tune it and only then install the turbo, which is actually the easy part of this job .

    Sorry guys I've been busy at the shop. Another option would be a Rotrex supercharger set up. It is easy to install and very compact. We have successfully fabricated a kit for a Lexus GS400 and can be easily adapted into the VX. I anticipate the kit for the VX to be around $5800.
    Here are some pics to get an idea how the setup looks like:

    FYI - several VXs in Russia are using Rotrex S/C already.... at least one of them switched from Alpine and claims that Rotrex gives a much bigger boost..
