get a 3 gauge pod. I'm kicking myself now because I didn't get one. Now that I'm going 2.8", I'd like to monitor EGTs but where do I put the gauge...

what do you mean stage 2? do you mean the 3" pulley? Who's tuning it? You might want to get 3.34" dialed in before taking it down.

okay. i still think you should start with the stock pulley because if your tuner screws up somewhere along the way, and hitting wot @ 5psi and 17.0 is only possible so many times. don't wanna see you blow the motah. smaller pulley may mean 10psi @ 17.0. Twice as worse.

We can help. SC with the 3.34" pulley should be a good, reliable setup for roughly 220whp. Everything "bolts on".

Did I answer your question? What is your question?

Did you read this thread? It all depends on how much you pay for the parts.

Simple math equation:

(parts)+(install)+(tune)= Total Package price

I'll put my numbers in. Take into consideration that I was one of the pioneers, and my prices are a bit high.

1500 + 1000 + 250 = $2750

What is the listing price for the parts and is the power output worth it?

The "dual pass" is a modification made to the intake manifold (where the coolant hoses go through the laminova cores). The "dual pass" modification is not necessary to run the supercharger on the 2.4, however, since you have the manifold off you might as well do it. It's easier.

The second coolant tank contains the coolant for the intake manifold/heat exchanger. It acts as a reservoir for the coolant, and as long as you have the HE plumbed correctly, it is an overflow tank. It is absolutely necessary to have a second coolant tank for the intake manifold. It is a sealed system completely separate from the rest of the coolant system in the 2.4. SMG Motorsports makes a sweet bracket that fits on the passenger strut tower, and works perfectly with the spare coolant tank.
