Big update. I decided to ditch the NA setup and ordered the ZZP stage II supercharger kit to hopefully make some real power. It's bittersweet, as this was not the path I intended to take. But at least this way the power will come easier and cheaper than the original plan. Fingers crossed it doesn't blow up in my face.



The main meat of the kit. M62 blower, intake manifold, LSJ TB, belts and hoses. Fun stuff.



Everything else in no particular order.



3.1" pulley. ZZP quotes 12psi on my 2.2 with this bad boy.



Sweet pencil case. Came with 60# injectors inside as a bonus.



K&N filter, AEM boost gauge and Autolite butt plugs.



SC and IM gaskets, breather filter and MAF relocator.



Harnesses, dipstick & sheath, idler pulley and KY jelly



A pump.



A heat exchanger. It's smaller in person.



Mishimoto aluminum radiator.

Oh, and this little red noose to upload SkyNet into my car. Still waiting for Trifecta to email me the launch codes lol

Very exciting build you've got going here. It also made me joyous to see the interceptor in your pillar. Hat off to you, sir!

How long until you expect to actually get it on. If it's only a few weeks you'll be putting this on right about the same time I'm putting my turbo on.

Thank you. The Interceptor is quite the nifty little gadget, although I haven't made much use of it to be honest. I have it set to rpm and mph. Works real good for erasing the odd P0420 and P0171 that pop up every now and then lol

Well I'm still waiting on Trifecta to write me a tune, so I can't do a thing until then. Next I'll have to wait until my next Visa bill because it's damn near maxed lol. So, figure early July I should have Big Bertha hooked up and ready to go.

I'm not going into debt to finish this or it'd already be on. I have 3 more gauges to buy, Defi pressure, Defi EGT and interceptor. Picked up an Inovative wideband and Defi boost gauge today. FYI don't cheap out an any gauges, don't go with autometer at all.

I just noticed those pedals you have a different than the ones I have and love. Also your used tires are pretty well worn, new they have a rib running through the center of the middle thick line.

I should have my kit on a week or so before you.

Doesnt even look to complicate to install really. Just looks like a lot of time and effort. You guys and your FI

Yeah, I butchered the pedals. I dislike the look of them, but thankfully I don't have eyes on my feet so it doesn't bother me as much anymore. Plus they do grip well, especially when my shoes are wet from the rain. Form is nice, but function is better.

I went with AEM for my gauges, which I believe is a middle of the road brand. Their AFR gauge is working well and hooked up fairly easy, so I believe their boost gauge will perform similarly.

Fingers crossed.

It's a bolt-on kit, so no advanced engineering degree will be needed to get this thing to work. Still, Trifecta is the one tuning it. That's the chink in my armor.

Yeah I need to tap into a coolant source for the turbo and custom charge pipes are going to be the only really hard thing.
