I'm not sure the alternator needs to come off, but you may want the space, and that'* easy.

1. Release the belt(*).
2. Remove the alternator if you wish to.
3. Suck out as much as you can from the fill hole (windex sprayer or similar).
4. Remove bolts holding nosedrive to 'charger. Place a rag under it.
5. Remove nosedrive (a small block of wood in the 'notch' may help). You don't want the rotor plate to come out, just the nosedrive.
6. Clean mating surfaces gently, and try not to get debris in the gears or nosedrive. A shopvac works great while you're cleaning old goop.
7. Pull coupler out, pre-oil the holes on the new one (it'll be a tight fit) and push it on one or the other half.
8. Apply a SMALL bead (1/16-1/8") of red gasket maker to the nosedrive flange (flat face) including around each bolt and pin hole.
8. Line up the pins, and push the nosedrive on.
9. Torque the bolts to 15ft/lbs in a 'star' pattern (criss-cross), then again to 20ft/lbs. Wipe any excess goop off.
10. Fill with oil to the bottom of the threads, check it daily for a week for leaks and level.

well my coupler should be here today so tomorrow or the next day I will be replacing it. think it would benefit anyone to take play by play pics of the procedure on my 96 and post them to help others? if so where do i see how to upload pics onto here.

Default lim

well i found a shop to do the lim and valve cover gaskets for 330 this includes the gm lim gasket and valve cover gasket and supercharger gasket. isnt there some orings too? also i have a factory repair manual on the way, is this something I should try on my own or is the price good enough to have someone else do it? can someone list all the parts I would need to do these things so I know im not missing anything?also is there anything else I should do while this is being done, rather its just preventative or performance related? thanks again for all of your help. i love my car and would like to fix her up and see you guys at the next meet

Yes, you need the two yellow coolant bypass o-rings between the LIM and SC on the TB end, unless they come with the SC gasket (sometimes fel-pro ships them together). You also more than likely will need a full set of fuel injector o-rings. Don't forget coolant ( http://www.zillamotorsports.com/DEX )

$300?

That'* a very relaxed 3-4 hour job here. And I don't charge labor.

From this page:
http://www.intense-racing.com/Mercha...tegory_Code=GH

GM Gasket Maker
$7.99

Coolant elbow
$9.99

Throttle Body Gasket (good time to clean it, call this optional)
$6.99

Thermostat Gasket (good time to drop to a 180 thermostat, call it optional)
$3.99

Supercharger Gasket (L67)
$9.99

Supercharger O-ring seals pair
$9.99

LIM gaskets L67/L32
$49.99

Valve Cover Gaskets L67 (optional, not required for LIM or coupler change, but easier to do with the LIM off)
$34.99

From this page:
http://www.intense-racing.com/Mercha...tegory_Code=CS

180 degree Thermostat (optional but reccommended highly)
$9.99

From this page:
http://www.intense-racing.com/Mercha...3800_Induction

Supercharger Oil (you only need this one double-sized bottle unless you want a spare)
$9.99

Supercharger Coupler
$34.99


OR save yourself some money and get the Supercharger Coupler Change KIT, don't buy the red gasket maker, coupler , or oil seperately above, and these three together are:
$49.99


Buy your coolant anywhere (Non-Dex mixes with any color) and we can get a thermostat o-ring locally or near you.

Plan on an oil change by the time you get home with it.

I'll leave the math to you. I'm watching goop dry on my LIM and intercooler. :P
