True, it doesn't. I wouldn't run any FI on the OEM pump.

Not sure you can run the Roush without the charge cooler since it's integrated into the intake.

on stock internals? I guess it would be fun until the engine exploded.

to the op, I would pass and either wait for another deal on a full used kit, or save a save up for a new one (eliminate all the guess work).

alright, i guess i'll hold off for now. as the saying goes, i bit off a little more than i can chew. the price 2,000 sounded sooo good. i didnt think about all the other things i'll need. i'll just continue to save and save and hopefully one day i'll be able to give kenne a call. thanks for everyones help.

Never leave a good time to find another.

It's amazing how all the extra pieces will nickel and dime you to the point where you'll have $4K into it anyway.

id try and talk him down. after everything your gonna be paying little less for your than for a brand new system. if your gonno do it, go big i always say. have you seen the new saleen super shaker? wow, ik ik its really expensive and you gotta cut your hood, but theres shops that will do it..i know brenspeed has a guest house here in indiana so you can hang till they get it installed. but if you dont ahve the money and are looking into 7-8lbs, you almost dont need the intercooler. ever look into methanol injection? i tihnk theres a system on bamachips.com i think snow performance makes it. might actually be a cheaper route

Another thing I'd recommend you consider if you do buy/go F/I is an air/oil separator to prevent excessive oil droplets from getting sucked into your engine.

Moroso and Steff both make catch cans (as do others). I wouldn't get the Steeda because it holds very little oil (like an air compressor model).

Maybe Beau - I hadn't really thought about it until you asked. 'Course if you go the breather route you'll be venting to the atmosphere...
