Default Supercharger install pics!

Ok here is the first installment of me doing this. The package arrives sometime today by FedEx, so decided to start work anyway.

First.....the shop is cleaned up and counters are ready for work.




Next, pulled hood off.



I hope I find out where this goes after the install.



Getting ready to pull steering rack to pin the crank. I don't really want to cause I hate all the trouble....but.



Of course I NEVER do anything without ****ing something up, notice the nipple broken off the radiator? That's going to involve some creative repair later.

Seems like a good excuse for a shorter rad purchase. That hose will just come off. Leave where it's connected to open to atmosphere.

What kit did you get?

Gotta find the instructions............

A very well packed box and NO damage to box anywhere! FedEx did a super job and even used a dolly to take it to my shop....

Wheres the Alkey Control Box Rick? I don't see it?

Hope you went with the 3.4 pulley from the start, if not it's going to cost you later when you pulley down!

But my gut is telling me you went with the 3,6

3.6...... I'm much more concerned on where to put my "supercharged" logo's .....

You already now where this is all headed in the end. But I'm taking it step by step to drag the enjoyment duration for at least a few years. Money and time are on my side.
