    Yeah you got it, I lengthened the throttle body hose and connected a valve, the one with the red handle in the picture below. I turn it off in the summer to keep the throttle body cool as you say. Really would make a negligible difference to performance of course but if you have 50 negligible mods, they eventually add up to something.

    Hey @TodayWasTHeDaY did you take pictures along the way of your supercharger porting? Or do a writeup even?

    Copy and pasted and edited and added on from an earlier post somewhere.

    I just ported my SC a conservative amount. The inlet at the rotors basically can't be ported at all due to thin wall thicknesses everywhere. The whole inlet from the throttle body to the rotors can be smoothed but can't grind too much because of thin wall thickness. I opened the outlet probably 15% at the rotors, inlet at the rotors 2% (guessing) and smoothed the inlet runners and ported and port matched the SC outlet into the runners. Smoothed the inlet from the throttle body too.

    Used a pencil type Pneumatic grinder but it was fairly awkward working at an angle in the front. You can see some scratches to the right side of the V where the grinder got away from me and cut through the tap. Steady, steady hand needed. I ended up using a small hand file a lot. Lots of sanding with paper to smooth things out. Went to about 180 grit on everything because from everything I read a little bit of roughness allows a layer of air for most of the airflow to slide over. Too smooth actually can make less flow. There is a 2-3mm lip underneath the left side of the v shaped outlet port that I mostly shaved away. The widest part at the bottom of the v can't be widened anymore due to the way the casting is.

    Very difficult to remove much material from anything due to the way the casting is. I could have opened up the outlet more but it was a pain in the ass and if the inlet can't be opened up then effeciency goes out the window. People have wrecked blowers where they blow less air so I went modest.

    Also cut away the parts of the two barbed hose fittings (brake booster and vsv) that stick out on the inside of the sc intake.

    Before pic - removed material that was sharpied.

    Top port is untouched, middle port is ground down. The side edges that look like a lip still are actually divots and if you ground those down you'd probably put a hole through to the outside.
    Took a bit of material to smooth the curve into the runners and port matched it together to the runners. Awkward spot also and resorted to a lot of hand sanding.

    You must have a pre flight checklist when you take off.

    Looks awesome

    Heh. Fasten your seatbelt and keep your seat backs in the fully reclined position...

    Just picking away at the G37 Coupe seat retrofit. Hack level 9000 wiring. The cupholder delete allowed me to install the fuse block (don't worry there's a main 60A breaker near the battery) and start wiring in the relays and connecting the switches. The switches light up now which I think is pretty slick.
