So I'm saving the money for a 1900, and Iv been looking on here trying to find if there is any thing else that is recommended or mandatory to get for it that's not in the kit. I know I'll need gauges, gauges pod, and tune but is there any thing else I should get? And Iv been looking at the cog set up for it where can I get that from? Magnuson?
Thanks

You don't really need any extra gauges. Not necessary for daily driving.

It comes with everything you need for 6 psi. You don't really "need" cogs at 6psi, but if you want them, hit up WickedMom.

+1 . Jessika (aka Wicked Mom) is at Superchargersonline, formerly Supercharger Connection. She is the best.
Don't want to rain on the cog, but check the threads on the other board about the noise .

Triple pods are not cheap... good gauges and the pod plus wiring you're looking at another grand.

Are you doing the install or having a shop do it? I'm sure some of the board members local to you can recommend a place for a tune.

And yes, Jess rocks.

Triple pod is around $800 plus aeroforce gauges at $650 for three or whatever gauges you want easily a grand and change. As for the cog, I have read about the noise but people say it grows on you, especially if your a Kenne Bell fan you'll love it. Also the cog will tighten up your stock pulley giving you an extra psi.

Yea I have added every thing up for the pricing and me and a guy that works for us will probably do the instal on it. My dad has his own mechanic shop lol

Also not real sure what gauges I'm going with yet was looking at the Plx gauges. Has any one used those???

Looks like your car is lowered and aftermarket wheels which I assume are wider in the rear which is good. Not sure if you did any bushing upgrades, but you might want to look into rear subframe inserts and rear diff bushings.

As far as gauges go, I went with Aeroforce gauges and also have a wideband, fuel pressure and boost sensor.

You're definitely going to need to get that wideband installed ASAP then. In order to do a remote tune, you need to report AFR back to Patrick to get your fueling right. I am in the process of remote tuning mine. Wished I had gone with Pat G from the start.....

EDIT: I didn't realize you are from Texas, so you might be just going to his shop to do the tune.

The Aeroforce can read the oil pressure from the OBDII.
