Puts a smile on your face every time don't it? Jason, if you get SHR to do the install on your supercharger, don't forget to have them put the shift kit in to handle the extra power.

How is the wire ran from the cut outs to inside? Did you have to drill any holes?

No drilling exept where you decide to put the switch, everything else is run through a factory gromet in the firewall and around the engine bay and factory holes in the fender well. I mounted my switch just under the trunk release.

Passenger side wire is run beheind the engine and beheind the brake line heat sheilds.

Driver side wire is run down through a hole in the fender well and under the plastc sheild by the front jack point.

Power is wired in the engine bay passanger side 12V jump hookup and factory ground by the strut bolt

If anybody in the area decides to do this I can help with wireing just not the welding, a local shop did that for $106.00, just under 2hrs work.

Isn't that the truth. Hot Rodding is equivalent to a financial black hole.
But.............it is a lot of fun. (I keep repeating this to myself for..... well a long time)

I just completely redesigned my exhaust too in order to better accommodate the supercharger, then had my exhaust shop fabricate and install it.

I am running a Vortech V3 at a very safe 6 psi.
With cool air I get 280 RW Hp out of my 3.5l and consider that it has a 3.64/1 rear end, it works well. I can and probably will increase the boost this coming summer, but only after I get the cool air system I engineered installed. MM gets 320 RW Hp with 10 psi and methanol injection to control detonation. The 3.5 has 10/1 pistons. We spent at least 6 hours on the dyno developing the tune and I spent a month getting rid of the engine check lights. The PCM uses an expected behavior and checks to see if its sensors fall in range. When you drastically change the behavior the PCM checks don't apply. Hell, I use fuel injectors from a 6.1 L. A proper tune is essential.

It is too cold and ten inches of snow for exhaust pics. But what I had done was use a Magnaflow X pipe to two delta 40 Flowmasters and 2.5 inch out to SRT tips I got from the wreckers. Once you go with forced induction the main object is to let the exhaust out. Normally aspirated engines need to be tuned for a standing compression wave. It really sounds good, which surprised me and past 40 mph there is no cabin resonance (drone).

Sounds like you have the system wire tight, I would like to see some vids posted, have not seen a SC'd SE in person as of yet. What 1/4 mile times are you getting ?, or do you have to wait untill the weather gets a bit warmer... Dave, I see a SC in your future.......:pullover:
