Got a supercharger!

I got an amazing deal on a procharger today. I plan on putting it on with my dad on my next day off. I'm extremely excited considering I wasn't even planning on doing anything to my car and just planned on trading it in for a new gt. Next is rear end/gears and tires. Only thing that sucks is I don't have a tune for it so I have to get it towed to a local performance shop to get it dyno tuned. Is it okay to start it up without a tune once it is on? Also, any tips for when putting the supercharger on?

I know little to nothing about supercharging, I just know I read a post one time a guy had either no tune or the wrong tune on his brand new supercharger and it caused a major problem to his engine. That's all I can say. Call your local dyno/performance shop and ask!

Well couldn't you get a tune from bama and run their conservative tune til you get a dyno tune plus your gonna need a sct tuner because many shops use their software to tune our cars

Yeah, I kinda figured I was gonna have to use a SCT tuner with Bama tunes before I got a dyno tune. I just wished I didn't so I wouldn't have to buy a one and then the next day get a dyno one, lol.

Just didn't want to spend almost $400 for a 15-30min ride if I didn't have to.

Also, how long should it take for a dyno tune? Is $120 an hour okay?

Thanks for the info.

Now to decide if I should just tow it there and just start it when getting on/off of the trailer and on the dyno or if I should fork out the $375 for a tuner from American muscle...hmmm.

As long as didnt get into boost you should be fine, but I agree with the previous posters, way safer to just tow it... If you can't, take a headheld programmer, set base timing and run it rich!

Enjoy your new supercharger!

If you want to start up the car after the swap get in contact with the shop who is going to do your tuning, they will be able to write you a start up tune that will be somewhat safe as long as you don't get into boost as previously stated, either way you will need a handheld to save your stock tune so figure the cost of the tuner either way.
