Hey guys, I just bought a used Alpine kit, which was sitting in someone's barn for the past few years, and I'm slowly getting ready to install it. I have a few questions, though:
- acccording to the install manual from Alpine, three vacuum ports should be connected via hoses and T-connector: intake manifold port, bypass actuator and fuel pressure regulator. I have a '05, so a returnless system and no FPR. So I just want to make sure that I ditch the T-connector, and just run a hose from the manifold to the actuator?
- since I have a returnless system and obviously the kit was designed for a return-type one, will I encounter any problems after the install? I'll be going just Stage 1 for now, so low boost and no changes to ECU/tuning/piggyback or fuel system at all
- the supercharger was sitting for years, but it looks to be in good condition - no play anywhere, rotors are not scratched - but it's covered in oil. I'm not sure if that's oil from the supercharger itself or from the PCV system of the donor car. Here's a pic, does anybody have a clue, should I just rebuild it?
