    Question Green or Vortech

    Hi all, which s/c wheel would you fit?? Green or Vortech. I have been installing a external intercooler over the winter and want to go up a step on the s/c. Wondered which was best and wat other mods would i need due to the Intercooler. Im guessin that the rising rate regulator would be best, i want reliabilty with improved performance. I don't wat to build a rocket ship jus to be a bit quiker than standard. Any help wold be great

    I would go with the Green Wheel without a doubt! I have run 77+ mph using one with an external IC, 42lb. injectors, and 15/20 prop.

    Last year I had the same dilemma, but after much consideration and more specifically feedback from this site, I went with the green wheel, and was overly impressed. Acceleration was a huge improvement and the top speed gains were impressive. So I'd say go with the green.

    I would go with the green charger. A cheap way to get by would be with the 42# injectors. The best way would be with the RRFPR

    Get the green wheel, but you will need bigger injectors when using an external intercooler.

    Yes, the rising rate regulator is preferable as you won't be so rich in the low RPM and mide range RPM's.

    As I'm looking at similar mods, I have a couple of questions, isn't the factory Fuel regulator a rising rate? (ie: what advantage would an after market regulator give over the factory reg?) or are you using the after market reg to raise the base fuel pressure?

    Also, I notice that the after market regs are around the $400 mark... are they anything special? In Automotive turbo race cars we use Sard Fuel regs which are only about $150 and never had a problem with them?
