Wahoo, got it started up and running. Going to drive it to work and hope I don't break something. Power Steering fluid went back perfectly, no noises from turning.

Here is a video, I have never done a supercharger install so I don't know what a normal sound is. Everything sound normal to the experts?

sounds good, make sure all clamps are tight and get some new oil for the SC unit, change it since you may not be sure when it was originally done. FYI, get a spare belt and tools to change on the side of the road, I have never had too, but I know the belts are sometimes hard to get in an emergency. I have 15k on my belt and so far no problems. Let us know what you think later,,, PERMAGRIN...

That all sounds good. Be sure to tell us how it all feels

I changed the oil in the supercharger yesterday, wanted to start fresh. I drove it 17 miles to work and its awesome. I still haven't gotten past 4k RPM's, roads are wet right now. Love the boost sound though.

Only thing that worries me was exhaust pulsing at high load, probably needs more time to learn.

40 mph in 4th gear in my M6 makes the coolest whistling sound ~2K rpm. People on the sidewalk turn to see what the heck is coming down the road.

If you haven't gone beyond 4K rpm, you haven't seen anything yet...

At the track with my wife. Sucks that I can't race, no fire jacket and still need a dyno to verify everything.

Said screw it and dragged it. I need my transmission tune though. 14.111 @ 103.79 in 2565 DA. Got 104 mixed 50/50 with 91 fuel. Will try to run a few more times.

Did 4 runs last night and nothing broke. I installed the Supercharger Wednesday, tuned it Friday at noon, then raced it Friday night. The time I posted earlier was my best time, but to give you an idea of how this track is, I raced against a L99 with an LS3 conversion, cammed (you could hear it), headers, exhaust and he was running 13 @ 111.

I did a torque datalog on one of my runs, 15 degrees of timing advance with 2 degrees of KR near the top end.

Loved the sound of the blow off after I let off the throttle at the end of the run. A lot of people at the track loved the sound of the supercharger.

I have been running 93 octane and have had a lot better results on the dyno. The price difference in New England is 5 cents a gallon, well worth it in my book. I believe Arno's tunes are for 93 but I know he usually asks what running.
Looks like you a getting the V6 FI permagrin Keep the shinny side up !

The most we get is 91 octane, which I will not say what I think about this state from that (I'm from North Carolina where we get 93).

Will try again soon, but we are about to hit the hottest month.
