I just drilled and tapped a hole into the Aerocharger cover and use the stock aircleaner mounting bolt.
I have taken heaps of pics of the build so I wonder if we have room for a new 'build' thread? Thoughts?
The top inlet was the first version using the Mikuni. We ran about 11-15 lbs of boost but had numerous head gasket problems. The center inlet plenum and Stock CV carb gave the same horsepower at around 8-9 lbs of boost and a lot less headaches.
Why are you running a blow off valve? The black controller has a diaphragm and spring and shims in it to control the Variable vanes. with the right spring and setup the boost pressure will close and open the vanes to control boost. I have mine set at 8 psi on low and by adding a switch with a bleed I can get 10-13 on high boost.
I have found 8 psi to be the most reliable and still give you around 90hp-90ft/lbs on a stock 80". I have tried several turbo cams but have found the stock Evo cam works as good as any of them for street riding.
When I get home and have time I need to refresh my memory on this setup. I haven't had any problems with the 3 I have and I just check the oil and clean the filter every season and ride them. If i can find the original install manual in my archives I can scan and email it to you guys.
Ride safe Dennis
