Well folks, I'm going to have the Vortech Supercharger installed at a shop just a little North of Boston. Unfortunately they are booked until the end of June. here's my question. I'm pretty mechanically and electronically inclined, I have a lit of tools available and a hydraulic lift (if needed) at my uncles gas station. Will I be able to do the install by myself in like 3 days?? Then I'll flatbed it to the dyno so they can tune it. what's the possibility of the install??

Thanks guys!!

Well, it seems like you would be well prepared with all the tools and necessary equiptment. Personally, I would go for it. If worse comes to worse, you can always put it back together to stock and then wait for the shop to do it. I can't see it being too hard though. Also, it'll make it a lot easier when you sell your car to return it to stock and sell the supercharger and make a little of the money back. Take lots of pics while you are doing it so you know where all the vacuum lines and electrical connections go back to. It is always a good idea to have plenty of reference photos!

I'd be curious to know your intentions with fuel management.

Personally, I'd wait for the shop. Just seems prudent to let people who have done this kind of work before to do your install as they would be familiar with the potential gotcha's.

But I'm assuming you've read the installation manual and if you feel comfortable handling all the tasks listed, good luck!

Shads, that's where I ordered it from and hopefully the kit will be here in a month and they'll be doing the install the 2nd or 3rd week in June!!

Can't wait!!!!

It's a printing "terminology". All books needs to be printed in what's called a "signature", an 8 page spread. In the binding process, a book must contain the multiple of the 8 page signature, or a combination of a multiple of a signature AND a half signature. So, you can build a book or booklet with say, 20 pages with 2x signatures and a half sign (2 x 8 + 4 = 20). Now what happens if your booklet only has 19 pages worth of content? You end up with a completely blank page. So in order NOT to confuse the reader, especially readers of instruction booklets, they'll put "This page intentionally left blank" to let YOU the reader know that it's not a mistake in the printing process, this page is blank here because we do not have enough content to fill a multiple of a signature.

But on a PDF, it's simply single pages after single pages, if they printed this PDF directly from the printer spread, the "this page intentionally left blank" will get printed into the PDF as well.

Sorry for the OT post.
