Default My A&A install in finally complete

I finished the install of my V3Si supercharger. I took my time as it was a winter project. Overall, I really like the kit and support from A&A. They never failed to help via emails and calls even on the weekend. Now, with this install I also thought a few supports mods were worth it so I also installed new valve springs, rocker arms with captured bearings, power bond balancer, new fuel filter, new alt bracket, etc.

My car was a bit of a pain as I have auto with a previously installed tranny cooler. All of which was in the way...Oh hotchkis swaybar makes things very tight, but manageable. I did have a vararam so I had to yank that and install new fog light surrounds. Not hard but did add additional time to complete. Oh, I installed a wideband guage and boost guage too..had to drop pretty much most of my exhaust so I could take my down pipe to have the bung welded in.

I took my time as I wanted to be as **** as possible so that it looks good and somewhat stock appearing. I think it was well worth it. Well I ran put of time for my first start so that will occur tomorrow then I need to schedule for my dyno tune. I cannot wait!!

Well here are some pics of the outcome and shots along the way...

The black blowers look so good. Bought my kit used but if I was getting a new one I'd have it black. Looks good, have fun with it.

I agree. I always thought I'd want the polished but the black looks killer too. Well done! Keep us updated with dyno results.

looks good, clean install... I prefer the polished blowers myself but they look much better with a black bracket in my opinion, gives it a little contrast

I wish they sold natural finish blowers......... im boring lol. Looks good, post up the results when the tuning is done. I have that same front sway bar and I feel like that area is super tight with it..... seems to work OK though.

Yes it's very tight, but it seems "tight" was normal for this type of install

do you have a power steering cooler in the way?... I have a fat front sway bar as well and with the power steering cooler in the way the charge pipe was a little squished, I ended up removing the cooler since I don't really need it for the type of driving I do anyway and it gave me some room to work with

Nope...I have a regular c5 so no ps cooler...I do gave a tranny cooler but that made things tights not only in front but the lines go right under where the head unit goes...just needed more time and moving things around a few times

I ran into the same thing and trashed the PS cooler.

I moved my power steering cooler in front of the radiator. It's mounted right to the front of it.

Otherwise yes, it was smashing the tube.
