    Well, things took an unexpected turn so the Frankenstein build will most likely be going on hold. Picked up this stage 1 plus kit today. 3.6" pulley, 550cc injectors and cooler spark plugs. Hoping to install on monday. Just need to buy a new belt and IM gasket

    Get plugs that are one step colder if the kit didn't come with any? Flashpro with the CT base map will be needed....umm. Thinking

    I have new colder NGK plugs And flashpro. Just wondering if I should check anything or perform maintenance on the supercharger itself before install.

    I will need a new intake thermal gasket as the kit didn't come with one and I'm going to buy a new belt. Do I need to replace throttle body gasket? Is there anything else you think i will need to replace?

    CT base map and colder plugs like Webby said.
    Does the kit include bigger injectors? I forget if a bigger fuel pump is necessary, I replaced mine but I can't remember if it was just recommended or mandatory.

    Other than that, have lots of coolant on hand, you'll probably spill quite a bit when taking off the stock intake manifold and installing the new one. You'll also need someone's help when reinstalling the belt, that's a 2 person job.

    Yes you'll need a new throttle body gasket, you can get a thermal one along with the thermal intake manifold gasket.

    You'll need to reroute the injector ground wires because of the new manifold and gasket.

    When I bought my kit, it came with instructions specifically for the 9th gen. I think I may have them lying around somewhere still if needed, I can take pictures of the pages and upload them.

    I'm hoping to tackle all this tomorrow. I should have everything I need and have a friend that can help with the belt. I have a copy of the instructions and have read through them a few times, just waiting on a new belt that should be in tomorrow.

    The kit came with 550cc injectors. Going to run them with the 3.6" pulley and see how I like it. Might go 750cc or 1000cc and 3.15" pulley in the spring if I want more power

    Supercharger is installed and everything looks to be running smoothly. Only thing I'm not 100% sure about is the idle sound. Does this sound normal to everyone here? Only running the basemap right now so I'm not planning on doing any driving until Vit gives me a map

    It's a little hard to tell in the video but it sounds normal to me. The supercharger does idle loudly.

    Sounds like everything is normal. No rough idle, or excessive whining. That has got to be fun to drive...

    Well, Vit says we're all done tuning and I got an edyno graph. Kinda disappointed in the numbers but realize its not weather corrected. Also Flashpro shows my peak MAP at 6PSI which also seems low for the 3.6" pulley. Might take things apart soon to make sure everything is works smoothly and there are no leaks, ect.

    I haven’t paid enough attention to numbers with the 3.6”. Vit would surely know if your numbers looked off with the amount of people he’s tuned. Did you ask him?

    Gotta be the pull for the edyno. I have the same numbers with a rbc swap. How does the car feel as far as power?
