I've tuned my current setup with Derek from IMW. he's a great tuner and is very efficient and quick with revisions.
:thumbsup: Thanks! That was a big help. I sent him an email and he got back to me right away.

MercRacing is legit. Just understand Jose is a small biz/one man shop, so depending on his current inventory/what you looking to get, certain parts may take time. I'd highly recommend reaching out to him and seeing what's up for yourself.

Most of us run either the og JRSC or CTSC M62s. Several have run/still run the twinscrew. I can't speak much to the twinscrew, but I believe it's direct bolt or little modifications req'd to fit into the DC5 depending on the size blower you go with. What were you thinking about getting?

I have a Merc TVS1320 kit for sale currently. Complete with injectors, intercooler & piping, fuel pump. Will also have a TVS1900 shortly if anyone is interested.

Sold the car and couldn't cancel the 1900 before it was already processed.

how many miles were on the TVS1320? Im looking at a 1900 just trying to get everything together.. What intercooler and piping did you go with, They weren't really specific with what intercooler & piping is needed, i wasnt sure if you could straight up buy it for our cars or if it has to be custom made.

They pop up frequently, just keep saving up if you’re set on jrsc and you’ll see one come up.
I just hope the full kit as the JR supercharger needs a alternator or ps bracket spacers.

What's the price look like on them usually? Cause a brand new Comptech unit goes for $3600.

those spacers are not necessary anymore. majority of the kits out there are using the mercracing auto tensioner bracket, and you won't need to deal with spacers, or the ugly manual tensioner.

usually they sell for right under 3K. if they come with an after cooler just above 3K. depends what other goodies the kit may come with such as injectors and additional pulleys...

if you have a FB, theres a supercharged hondas page and theres constantly roots style superchargers for sale there.

What up peeps! Took a quick road trip from Orlando to ATL last week with the RSX. Held up well despite not having a thermostat. Ended up seeing temps as low as 130* for my ECT cruising in 6th. On the way back, temps stayed above 150*.

Car felt great... Didn't push it when temps were down cause I know VTEC won't engage. Actually averaged about 26 mpg
