< Harness clip holders needs cutting

< blower manifold support mount

< Arm attached to support mount and engine

< Arm installed

< New NGK Iridium Spark plugs

< New injector clips installed

< old clips snipped off, new clips soldered

< MSD 3 map bar sensor w/ Piggy back harness

< Zip-tied to frame

< Finished project, ended up boosted!!! Note the hose that connects from the nipple by the throttle body to the nipple behind the fuel rail is incorrect, this hose should connect from the nipple by the TB to the bypass valve. My bypass was broken, so that was my temp. solution to avoid vaccum leak)

^Thanks, I was hoping to find something like this when I was installing mine... so I decided to do one so it will help others out.

I hope this will help other DIYers, feel free to ask any questions if you have any as I still have the installing procedure pretty clear in my head!

Awesome DIY my friend. I have been debating weather to go SC or TC. I think I might go the SC route due to my vehicle being brand spanking new. Quick question, If I buy the JRSC for my 2006, will I need anything else other than upgrading injectors? would 550cc /min be good. Or should I just get 750cc /min injectors? Also, did you get the SC from supercharger.com Thanks in advance. And if you don't mind, i'd like to ask a lot more questions. PM possibly?

Very nice!!
Makes me so glad I don't have A/C in the way so I can just take the radiator off to get easy access to the front of the engine!!

This reminds me of how much a pita I thought it was to install mine. This was largely due to the fact that someone (not me) forgot to connect the alternator plug and I was completely f'ing up the belt routing.
