I just ordered the newest blower from alpine.
It is the same blower kit as for the beta 1, but rather it has a totally re-designed manifold just for the beta2 map sensor based cars.
they have completed the R&D for this kit and they have a total of 3 manifolds coming from the machine shop (CNC)... and they have to order the actual eaton blower with each order (10 day lead time)
So i pre-paid for the entire kit.. $2900 + 70 shipping, NO TAX ! (sorry TC, I would have ordered it from you but i was quoted 2950 + tax + shipping...)
They said it ships out to me in 2 weeks. and i'll have it by the last week in October.
The guy I spoke to for this order was Alistair (pronounced Alistar)... and he said the kit runs 8 psi stock and does not require any head spacer and does not include an intercooler.
however it does include the unichip & 5th injector setup + all misc parts required for installation.
I told him about my crank pulley and he said that I should take it off and put the stock pulley back on in order to spin the supercharger pulley fast enough to make 6 psi of boost...
So, if anyone wants my OBX crank pulley... let me know... I'll be pulling it out this weekend.
WISH ME LUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!!
