anybody know how to install a supercharger on a '01 3.8 V6 stang

I have a 2001 Ford Mustang with a 3.8 V6 with an automatic and have purchased a centrifugal style supercharger from Procharger and all I have left to do is install it. I have the concept down on the install, but I'm looking for further guidence from others who's been around the block. Please fill me in on DL and lemme know things I need to watch out for.

I would personally try to get the help of a mechanic that has done it before or take it to a shop (liability reasons) and let them do it unless you feel rather good about working on your own car and can accept the fact that you might do something wrong and the consequences of it~

overall the install isnt very bad, its pretty straight forward. Paying attention to the details, taking your time, and reading the directions and googling info will all help.

In the end DO NOT RUN THE POS TUNE THAT COMES WITH THE KIT!!!!!! take it and get it dyno tuned ASAP.

If you can do the basic change brakes spark plugs etc. it should not be that hard just read the directions multiple times and take your time. It took me about 3 months all together to do my turbo. and def listen to Spector about the tune that will make or break your car and your wallet

fully read the directions and memorize the basic steps you will have to take. make sure you partmark! go buy a package of little baggies and a felt pen, its alot smarter than a box and trying to remember which bolt goes where. expect the unexpected, when modding cars, nothing is just "Bolt On", youre always gonna have to modify or rig something to fit/work. and yes, get it dyno-tuned, mail order and supplied tunes are good to get you down the road, but if you want to run it hard reliably, youre gonna have to strap it down.

also take pictures before you remove things (good pictures) so you can reference them when putting crap back together.

Whats your tubo setup? Did you build your own or get one made and then put it in yourself?

I bought the kit from TMA TURBO but is it is not as easy as the procharger kit. There is alot more fab work for the little things and alot more tools needed to install. I took my time to make sure I got everything to fit right and got the pipes coated etc. you can PM me if you are serious about doing one. darkshadow on this board also has a TMA kit I;m sure he would help you with any questions as well
