I can feel the mod bug digging his cash depleting teeth into my skin just reading this thread.

Problem is... I think the missus already has a big can of bug spray ready for me.

I have had my car for not quite two months and i already have tint, 2 12" JL subs (bought cheap from a relative ) FWI, and clear corners..hmm ok well in my head it seemed like more. What my point is is that I could spend so much money on it, luckily i like to spend my money wisely, so I'm not just going crazy on it. Although that would be pretty fun..I think I've been bitten multiple times..

just got mine ! gonna put in on tommorow, along wit my ngks, beldens, gatorback belts and the MPS poolie i got with it. Im gonna have the local supercharger shop put on the pulley. they probly deal with modular pulleys all the time, but should i bolt on the pulley first before i give it to them(and maybe put on blue threadlock)? or does the hub go on by itself, then the pulley gets bolted on?

The hub goes on first by itself, then you bolt on the pulley.

Before you hand them the keys.. make DAMN sure they have the right equipment. Ask to see their puller and compare it with pics from Intense and ZZP'* sites. If it doesn't pull from the back of the pulley and have proper support.. you will most likely not get your car back as quickly as you hope. The M90 is very specific to the type of puller you can use.

will do. it looks like they specialize in eatons, but ill check with them first. does anybody have suggestions on putting on the smaller band on the rubber throttle body adapter? its a tight as heck fit, i just took a decent size chunk of my fingertip trying to get it on there. i loosened the locknut, and it popped off. im trying to find channel locks to clamp it down and get the nut back on. any other suggestions?

Check the other clamps and make sure you have the right ones in the right places.

i did. it just was one tight bia.....had to put it in a vice to put the nut back on. got it in. sounds mean, even without the poolie in yet. just gotta wait for the engine to cool off, then ill change plugs, wires and belts. i can tell this airfilter will be alot easier to take off and clean than my firebirds was, you had to disassemble the bumper some to get to it.
