All 1st Gen JCW threads moved here

Hey everyone,

As I had planned for some time, now that the JCW Garage has taken hold here, I have gone ahead and moved all 1st Gen JCW-related threads (i.e. all of those with "JCW" in the thread title) to this forum. I limited the search to only the other 1st Gen Forums (except the GP forum, of course), so there shouldn't be any 2nd Gen JCW stuff here now.

In all, there were 487 JCW threads moved here. I have set them all up with a 3 month redirect, meaning that "placeholders" will remain in the old locations for the next 3 months.

The JCW Garage forum is now complete!

I wasn't really in the market for a "new" car but...well, you know. I found a 2006 mcs with jcw brakes, engine mods and lsd, showing 33K on the odometer. for around $21k. It's pw/pw/pw with black pleather and anthracite headliner (no sunroof) which is great for me...I'm tracking my car and plan on tracking this one, if I buy it.

It FEELS like a great deal. Comments and insight are what I'm asking of y'all....so please, help me!!

Thanks

The JCW pulley is approx. 11% smaller than a stock pulley. There will be no difference with your supercharger and a stock one, they did not start coating the parts inside untill around 2005. As for your Head, I dont think anyone would go to the trouble of pulling it off to switch it out, the JCW heads were MILDLY ported and only on the exhaust side it would not be worth the trouble of swapping it unless it was a Thumper or RMW head . Your JCW will not have 380cc injectors or JCW CAI either, they came around 2005 also.

jcw

Hi, thanks for the help, but i have another question if the pulley of the charger is almost the same whats the diference of boost of an mcs stock and an jcw, because if it is a jcw the boost must be hi than the stock version, i think
