Well you can't see from the pics I've got the car back together with the ProCharger system and she's running pretty good. She's needs a little more tuning.

As you can see I've got my Centerline Storms back on, but I had them powder-coated in a "Raw Titanium" which is a color I got from the '05 Ninja 10R

I think you should have left the Centerlines Chrome, or had them powdercoated black. They look faded and dirty. But a perty SVT.

When they were polished they were nearly impossible to keep clean/looking good and black wheels are more than played out if you ask me.


I love that color! (saw some of those bikes at MotoGP).

I bet it just rawks in person. Great idea
Thanks Kris... Yes it is much better in person.


Oh and about the ProCharger... It's making good power and I'll post dyno plots after I get back on the rollers.

Those wheels look great!
the car looks great!!
Is it at stock height?
Did they have to beadblast them before powdercoating?
I wonder how much these would weigh in a 18"?

Keep up the good work?

Stock height and yes he blasted them before he shot'em and I can't imagine the 18's would weigh too much more than these. I believe these 17's are 15 lbs if I remember correctly. Thanks for the kind words!

Dem wheels look good to me. At first I did a double take I thought they were stock SVT wheels. Anyhow they look good. Now two quick questions. Where did you get your procharger, and how much do they go for?

Thanks...No drop for me. Quite pleased with the comfort vs. performance of the stock setup.

Got the ProCharger from Hypnotic and it was $3300.

There's really nothing to see under the hood. You can't see the blower and you can barely see the intercooler.

I dont know why everyone complains about keepin the centerlines clean. Ive had mine on all summer and the only thing ive done to them is wash them when I wash my car and this is what they look like. The key is using ZoopSeal. Put it on before summer and they'll look great! Its well worth the money for this kit. This is the kit I got but there are more to choose from. http://www.zoopseal.com/product-detail.asp?prodID=9550

Yeah it would've been fine to Zoop'em before they got really tarnished, but I didn't and they did and powder-coating was cheaper than sending then back out for a re-polish and the zoop together.
Plus I wanted a unique finish on my wheels.
