I think that comes from the earlier calculations that running over 6100 RPM will spin the SC faster than it's stated engineered rating. You'll also generate more heat than a 15% will at the same engine RPM. You may see more boost but I don't know if there's much net gain due to the heat losses. A bigger IC helps I'm sure but I haven't seen any real test data on it.onasled said:If your this worried about putting in a 19, then don't do it. I don't feel that the long term effects are in yet on this mod. There are now questions of possible head gasket failure with the 19, but I'm thinking that there is no connection.
There are several here that love there 19 and will tell you to go for it, but IMHO, I would only do so with caution. Street? Track? Not that much difference in how one drives a MCS as far as I’m concerned. If it proves bad for the track then why would I want it in my car.
????. An intercooler, of any sort, has no effect on an overheating SC. ...or belt issues...or headgasket failures...bolt stretch issues.racer714 said:I'm currently working on building a front mount intercooler based off the Webb motor sport front mount. That should take care of some of the SC overheating.
A) I think you are asking if there is another SC that could take the place of the Eaton?? Yes, the Autorotor. It is not a simple swap, nor would you use the 19%.racer714 said:Is there any other performance SC on the market built to take the extra heat from the 19% pulley? About the Intercooler, now that I looked at my post your right the intercooler has nothing to do with the SC over heating, at work right now reading and typing posts and dealing with costumers screws me up some times. The head gasket may become a problem with the 19%'s extra boost your right. I'm sure there is someone out there working on that problem as we talk.
huh? Where did you get that idea?!bkwalker said:Benefit of using a 19% is you dont need to run any ECU upgrades.. and you get more power and lover revs..
