Default Thanks Jason and 281 Motorsports...

I had some oil on the snout of my Saleen blower. Fearing the worst I called up Jason and made an appointment for a rebuild. While my seals were good, my bearings were in bad shape. He told me the fluid level was fine but that my 3.4 pulley had weird machineing marks on it, and this was why my bearings were bad. Anyway he rebuilt my blower, fixed a semi stripped thread I had on it and shipped it back.
I got a new 3.4 pulley and added the following,
Shelby GT500 heat exchanger with fans
Meziere 20gpm water pump with custom 281 Motorsports bracket
281 Motorsports Saleen oil dipstick
Fluidyne radiator from 281 Motorsports
And 281 Motorsports Custom coolant reservoir tank modded for use as my intercooler reservoir.

I had some problems after install with codes and no starts but I had neglected to test my battery. My battery was still good but only at 11.7 volts. I charged it with my Battery Tender Plus and finally my car is back on the road.

The cooling upgrades are incredible. My IATs are around 15-20 degrees above ambient, but the big plus is after getting into boost the IATs recover very quickly. The Shaker has to help also as the car is starting with the coolest possible air. I will have a detailed post about the IAT's with some video to show how effective these upgrades are. The fans help when you are stopped in traffic to keep the IATs in check. But once you start moving the faster you go the more they drop.

If you need to have your blower serviced I highly recommend 281.
I have added longtube headers since the last time I have been at the track, so I will be heading to the track and am hoping for my all time beast run.
Here is a pic of my engine bay.

I agree Jason is always a big help, you can always count on him
