Pewter is definitely a lot more difficult to get a good color match with. I am a painter by trade that's why I'm a little particular when comes to that kind of stuff.
Nice build man it's coming along nicely!

Figured I should updatell this. I tore it down to the short block and put ls9 headgaskets and head studs on it....dropped the pulley down to a 4 inch. She's making around 8 psi now which is what I want. Time to tune and take it to the track before FL weather hits.

Made some more progress.....hands down the best fmic universal pipe kit. All kinds of bends and coupler, even some 90 degree couplers
Where did you get the universal pipe kit and part number if you still have it?
CXracing's kit is only for turbo's

Am surprised that no one makes a pipe kit for the ati supercharger. I had custom built aluminum kit built but I wasn't there when he welded it together so it a mess, so have to start all over. I think I can do better my myself with a kit.

I think the ATI/procharger intercooler kit is outrageously expensive so definitely making a custom kit is the way to go. My intercooler is from just-intercoolers on ebay and the piping kit is from buyaparts on ebay.

I did about as good as I could get it without buying the laser kit. Im sure it could be a little better but I've seen 8psi so far on the 4 inch pulley which is about right. I also modified the j bracket to add a 2nd idler pulley as well as make the tensioner back out farther to run a shorter belt so its tighter. I ran out of fuel and had to add a 2nd pump. Made a pull last night and was shocked at how hard it pulled, need to do a retune now and see what it can do.

Good luck getting her all finished up.
