    Did the package come with gaskets like throttle body and intake manifold (if needed)

    Yup! I read through the instructions like 4 or 5 times. I think I've got everything it references. I counted bolts and all. It's all neatly bagged and labelled.

    Had to order a new coupler for the SK2 intake since I have the ZDX now.

    I will :)

    I definitely didn't take as many as I would have liked (got old washing my hands to take pics REAL quick) , but I got some. I need to upload to my PC so I don't have to fool around with browser upload on my phone.

    Nice purchase. I wish they still sold this style of supercharger. I'd like to do this to mine.

    Install completed over the past weekend, but had to have the tune modified, so I didn't get it running until yesterday.

    Big ups to @ron v. Couldn't have done it without him. It was a massive undertaking to do all these installs at once, but we did it! After a combined 24 hours + of wrenching over 3 days, THE SUPERCHARGER LIVES!!!!

    Before:

    After:

    PXL_20200927_202825351.jpg

    Parts installed:

    CTE Supercharger
    • 3.6" Pulley
    • IMT Idler Pulley
    Deatschwerks EV14 1000cc injectors
    NGK ILKR8E6 1422
    Skunk2 CAI
    Full Race 3" Catted DP
    Skunk2 Megapower RR Catback
    PRL Stainless Steel Clutch Line
    Acuity Battery Relocation Tray
    H&R Springs
    Hasport RMM U70a
    Brakes and Rotors

    I actually still need to install the DW1000cc, but will do that in the next day or two, and then the tuning fun begins!

    So. Sore. And you got that right. It was lots of fun... Until it wasn't. And then it was! And then it wasn't .

    But then it was!!!!

    And now I'm ready for dat whine!

    Yeah yeah yeah. :D

    The whole thing needs to be cleaned. I took it through the carwash this morning to get off most of the fluids and shiz. Now I'm gonna need to go through the bay with some degreaser and clean it up. I'll probably end up waiting for the heatwave to peace out first though.

    I see the battery bay had moved in order for the CAI to fit in.

    Yep. All of the cold air systems for our car will require battery relocation.

    TIL:

    Group-A Engineering is Kraftwerks/Grams Performance/Skunk2 and they're based right up the road in Norco, CA.

    Had no clue they were all the same company. Got some cool stickers with the Grams PnP clips I had to get.
