    1st Gen C1 Supercharger Wheel

    I grabbed a C1 Supercharger Wheel off of Ebay some time ago and was wondering if it was worth even mounting. This wheel was quickly replaced by the C1-11 wheel, and more than likely for good reason. Just thought I would ask the masses for any insight before I start tearing things apart again. My mods are listed below to help. I'm thinking I may just want to try and sell this thing and grab the C3. Just hate to see it go to waste.


    08 FX-SHO-Blue
    Riva parts: Free flow exhaust, Intake manifold sleeve, Power filter, Intake grate, Sponsons
    R&D parts: Powershot (Awt. install), Pump shoe fillers, Multi pressure port adapter ,
    C1 1st Gen (Awt. install), 13/24 Skat (Awt. install), HKS BOV, DynoTune boost gauge
    Pump tunnel re-enforcement (Awt. install)

    You cant hurt the C1 by using it... so install it and enjoy while you wait on a C3 or riva's new wheel. Its better than stock and it worth the same $s if you use it or not! Have a great time while you wait for the mail in Japan!

    Yea I see your point, but when I started the wrenching I kind of just wanted to do it all, and be done with it. I have the supercharger tools but have yet to accomplish the tasks. If swapping wheels is quick/easy then yes I may just go for it. One thing I was concerned with though was turning my new 13/24 prop. I pretty sure I will be over propped with just an old school C1.

    I've ridden Rip's ski with the original C1-7, & it's definately an improvement over stock, even without the powershot or upgraded IC. I'll be installing my C1 next week, so I can post some pics if you want. I say use it if you got it.

    yep.......my ski has no problem turning the 13/24......turns it too well actually......i.e. cavitation on holeshot. and a steady 8lbs boost

    Thats sweet and at 73.2 GPS'd I have gotta at least try it.

    So it looks like with the mods you have a C3 would for sure require you to go to 13/25. If I could grab low 70's I would be stoked, and just ride the hell out of it.

    C3 would come when I was bored and maybe be a winter idea.
