I installed the Gen2R Budget kit on my 2010...everything went pretty smooth but the EGR was a PITA. Checked all connections and everything looked good. Kit was new SC, CAI (already had it installed), 90mm idler (already had it), new 67 TB to replace the 65 Ford Cobra, 2.5 pulley and installed new 95lb DeutchWerks injectors (came with the VMP it). Updated SCT, reloaded stock file and then loaded new VMP tune they sent. No issues with any of that either. Checked belt and all connections once last time before starting. It started up once the fuel rails filled with gas but I heard like a clunk noise - not normal but it only did it on the startup. No leaks, idled down to 700-750 but I hear a continuous whistle noise and I never heard that on my old stock SC. It was loud enough that it bothered me and did not appear to be getting any quieter. I shut it down and checked SC oil. Seemed okay but I added a little but until it flowed out on its own. I do not think they send these out without oil in them! Started it up again and i hear the whistle still. Seems to be towards the front of the SC. It idles okay so I give it a little gas and ease it up to 2000-2500 max. I hear that loud clunk noise twice and immediately turn it off. Double check everything and all looks okay and belt still on and didn't break. I think that clunk is the SC binding and releasing...only thing I can think of cause it never made any noise like that since I have had it (4 years). It is like an AC unit on a car when it is binding. When I looked at the SC and compared it to me old stock one...not a lot of differences, I noticed that the new one was at least twice as hard to turn as my old one which seemed odd. Old one seemed to spin better than the new one. VMP closed until Monday...need to talk to them I guess. Anyone ever had a bad SC from them yet?
