Got my blower and upper plenum back... Updated porting job, port matched at the TB and S/C inlet, stripped the rotors:


(Dont mind the Spongebob placements - added for reflectivity effect ;-)




I also painted the IAC and bypass the body color of my truck, and shot it with clear:





Then mocked up everything, including the polished SBTB and EGR blockoff plate:









All I could say when I picked it up was HOLY $H!+!!! I couldn't believe what an INCREDIBLE job Bob and his team did on this supercharger and plenum!! Bob went over everything that was done - including stripping of the rotors - He HIGHLY recommends doing that on ALL the truck blowers due to the small clearances within the case, and the fact that the cases can deflect under high boost/heat condiditons. It's inexpensive to do and will save your rotors and blower - He even mentioned that they tend to run better and cooler! He port matched everything, and I verified when I put it all together.

Stiegemeier has gone ABOVE AND BEYOND what I was expecting when I picked it up. These pictures just CAN'T do the work justice! If you're going to be at the World Ford Challenge, come by to check it out - I'll be showing the truck in the car show there!!

Just some tips on keeping it that way...

I use a good paste wax on mine after I polish it to help seal it. Also remember that anti freez will etche it and make it turn white. I found this out after I blew one of my heads. I thought it's only anti freez it will wipe right off! It did but left the polished surface ash white. I had to hit it with the buffer and polishing compound to make it shine again.

Thats true now but mine was polished 2 years ago and at that time I knew nothing about the zoop stuff. I would never clear coat it I love the fresh polished look.

Peace,
