To b honest with u I've only seen a used kit once on eBay like 5 years ago usually people sell them with the car it's to big a job to put on and take off. The only place u can buy new ones is to call kenne bell direct or u have to get one from one of there authorized dealers rgardless u still have to call them because they r the ones who r gonna give u the number to a dealer in ur state. The reason they do this is to keep the cost down the unit is already expensive that's why u can't get one at American muscle or any other company like that these companies mark up there products and the kenne bell would not b affordable to any of us if they sold it through these places.

Re: Supercharger Decisions

punching the pan isnt too bad. Just make your careful so you dont end up with a leak. I have a v1 and love it (although i had a spare pan and had a bung welded in and switched to braided steel lines and fittings)

There is no way to run it dry unless your start your motor with no oil in it. The setup pulls pressurized oil from the same place your oil filter screws in. The tap in the pan is only for the return line. If you run it dry, you will have alot more problems than just a screwed up charger

The dyno tune. Vortechs tune is designed to get you to the rollers and that's it. They have no way of fine tuning your car for your specific environment.
