One thing you might want to consider though is that you're in California. As far as I know, the supercharger is not carb compliant so that means when you have to take your car to get smogged and checked, it will not pass because of the supercharger. I know a lot of members who live in california have no problem taking the kit off to go get smogged and then put on again but I don't know if you mind dealing with that hassle.

First off I just want to say love the v6 community, you guys are all wise and truly great.

Nita, before you sell the kit, you should really check out a stock v6 and see if its really worth going back to stock. If your really content with going back to stock then take it off and sell it. No ones trying to rip you off so hoepfully you get a great deal. I was only kidding with my posts, but the other members do make sense. By the time someone ships and gets a new tune, its going to be over 4k and then again your going to be buying used. You dont want to sell it any higher then that because at that point, someone might as well buy new.
Keep us posted and you better stick around the forum lol Dont use us and leave us.
Ps were you born in 1988? im a 91, if my tag doesnt give it away lol

Yeah, you guys are awesome! And I do understand that completely. People will have to buy a new tune for it so that's a pretty penny right there. I am uninstalling it right now as I write this. I've driven this car both without the SC and with it, but to me, I love her all natural . And well I know how much joy it brought to my cousin when he installed this kit so hopefully I can bring some joy to someone else ^_^.

Yes I was born in 88. Im old :p

There, there Ventmaster. If it makes you feel any better I graduated high school in 1971, but still I drives them like I stole them, and I still play with cars. Ok it is a bit slower now, but I still mod my vehicles.

This is going to be a great savings for whomever steps to the plate a buys this. Only wish I wasnt a couple g short I would be on this if I could be said and done at 4 grand. Guess I will miss out and somebody else will have a ton of fun.

Then again if it hangs out unsold and I can turn and burn a few more things in the next couple weeks...

Enjoy it while you can. Just yesterday I was 21 and had the world by the ass. Next month I'll be 41. Beginning to understand what my parents were talking about when they said time flies. :-)

Fuel tank one way vent valve is completely different, but no one seems to be able to tell me how that's so. The pictures in the instructions are for an LLT, and I was clueless how they related to my install.

The MAF extension is just a 24" bundle of eight wires. You cut the plug off and add the plain wire to make the harness longer. That's simple.

The intercooler brackets are more than likely available. If they're not, they could easily be made.

From all appearances, the kit for sale here if for an LFX. Not sure what-all you would have to change up to make it work right on an LLT, but for sure, the MAF doesn't play into it. The only requirement is that the existing wires be lengthened.

You can fab intercooler brackets easily with a simple vise and strap perforated steel. It isn't under any real force, so you'd just need to get it to where it's not going to fly off at random, pretty much.

You do need some sort-of-special tools. All of them are metric, of course. You will need Allen wrenches and Torx sockets. I used a heat gun more than once. A Dremel tool is always handy, with an assortment of bits. I used mine to smooth out some bracket holes and to cut the plastic for the intercooler hoses. An assortment of extensions for 3/8" drive sockets is a must. You won't even be able to remove the front fascia without them and a universal (u-joint) adapter.

You might want to plan on having: A couple of days, unless you're a crew that has done this sort of thing before; Organizational skills, as there are a lot of parts that come off and have to go back on; Floor jack and jack stands, unless you are only 3 feet tall, otherwise your back is going to hurt...bad; The ability to think on your feet, as there are going to be things that come up, no matter what.

I'd ask: Are the instructions included? How does the buyer know "everything" is included? If you're not the one who put it on, how do you know how much has to come off, and will the buyer get all the parts?

I knew what I was getting into, and I thought I was prepared, however, I still found myself digging for that one "different" socket, that one special Dremel bit, that one "different" o-ring, etc.

Not trying to knock this, by any means. And I'll offer my help-from-a-distance to anyone who buys this. Someone should pick this up and get a great deal. It rocks. And, the new buyer will have access to the newest tuning software when they get their tune through IPF, as they just released new software on 2-6-13.

Anyway, the kit is solid. And it just freaking rocks. Did I mention the rockin' part?

John B.
