He got here right about 11am and we got right to work. Turned on the heater and hoped it would warm up. 15*, not fun.

We got the front bumper off to install the heat exchanger.

Kind of forgot about the camera, so not to many pictures. To busy freezing.

Got the heat exchanger installed and now the top comes off.

Took 7 hours. The PRJ fuel rails were a pain. I should have installed them before I put the supercharger on.

The worst part is Tom had the wrong size belt. He had a 716, WAY to short. I had a 725 on the shelf. Close, so close, but just couldn't get it on. He had to drive home without the supercharger working. He'* going to need to find a 730 belt.

The heater ran out of fuel part way threw the day. Got up to 40*, then cooled off fast.

All in all, it wasn't to bad. Yes, wrong belt size, ya, the fuel rails were a pain. About 2 hours wasted because to stupid things. But, the car did start right up.

Thumbs up

Its gonna be coming into the shop Saturday for the new belt, and a new belt tensioner, plus we keep the shop at about 75*~80* all the time. Wood fired heat is the way to go.

Much better. There'* no way that belt was going to fit, even if we could move the tensioner. You will also need to mount the MAP bracket. That might not be possible with that supercharger so high. Also, it hits the hood. Might help to run the plug wires under the snout. The vacuum lines need to be redone. I had to jerry rig the FPR line

Should be no problem at all, Im a crack fab go to guy, so we should be able to get something set up for that MAP sensor, and I redid all the vac lines on our bonnie so that part will be easy.

Check the torque on the supercharger bolts. 204 inch pounds. They are such long bolts they can be a real pain. And they change the torque after heating up. My biggest worry is the SC hitting the hood. You need to push a bit to get it to close.

Not sure if it'* hitting the metal of the hood, but it is hitting the padding. Wont take long to tear that all up. Guess someone needs a new scooped cowled hood.
