Installation Preparation:

    1. Before you begin, we recommend that you thoroughly clean the engine and engine compartment. If you don't, grease buildup on parts could become dislodged during the procedure and fall into the engine.

    2. Make sure the engine has cooled fully before beginning this installation.

    3. To help you later, draw a diagram of your engine's vacuum hose routing before you disconnect anything. However, some of the vacuum connections on your intake manifold may not be the same as those on the supercharger. Study and closely follow the vacuum diagrams for your specific application included in the back pages of these instructions.

    4. The LC Engineering supercharger kit has been designed to reuse most of the stock nuts and bolts. Therefore, as you remove them, keep them with their components or label them for location. This will assure a faster, easier installation.

Image
    37. On 2000 and earlier model years, step 36 may not be necessary. Check the power steering pressure feed hose clearance to the supercharger by installing the supercharger main assembly onto the cylinder head. When installing the supercharger, the supercharger drive pulley and snout slides under the power steering pump return hose. If necessary, adjust the power steering line next to the banjo fitting on the power steering pump. See (Figure 13). The steel line needs to be parallel with the engine centerline. NOTE: Adjust carefully so the steel line will not kink. When adjusted correctly, the rubber hose that is connected to the steel line will have clearance to the supercharger housing and also to the lower radiator hose check and remove.
Image
    38. Attach the new supplied 2-piece lower manifold bracket to the engine mount with one 8mm x 25mm long flange head hex bolt See arrow in (Figure 14).

Image
    44. The wires that connect to both the detonation sensor and the crankshaft position sensor need to be routed below the intake manifold. Remove the nylon split flexible tubing around the area where the wires join the main engine wire loom. See (Figure 23). Separate the detonation sensor and crankshaft position sensor wires back about 6" to 8" from the original breakout point. Use electrical tape to wrap the wires that have been split out from the main wire loom. Re-install the nylon split tubing around the main wire loom. Use electrical tape to secure the flexible tubing.

    45. Connect the detonation sensor and crankshaft position sensor connectors before installing the supercharger.

Supercharger Installation:

    46. When installing the supercharger, the supercharger drive pulley and snout slides under the power steering pump return hose. See (Figure 24). Before sliding the supercharger manifold over the attachment studs, insert the fuel line banjo fitting through the manifold between intake ports three and four. It is easiest to do this as the manifold is being lowered into place after the supercharger snout is in position. Use another person if necessary to help with the fuel inlet banjo fitting. Snug all the nuts and bolts to secure the supercharger to the cylinder head. Start in the center of the manifold and work outward towards the ends. Torque fasteners to 22 ft-lbs.

    47. Rotate the supercharger nose support bracket to align the slot in the bracket with the idler bracket bolt hole. See (Figure 24). Use the supplied 10mm x 1.25 x 25mm long hex bolt and 10mm washer to secure the nose support bracket to the idler bracket. Finger tighten bolt.
Image
    48. Using the 8mm flange head nut supplied, secure the upper portion of the manifold support to the 8mm stud that is in the bottom-side of the intake manifold. The stud should protrude through the slot in the manifold support bracket. See Figure 25. Tighten bracket to supercharger first, and then also tighten to the engine mount. Torque: 15 ft-lbs. Finally, torque the manifold bracket 8mm through bolt and nylock nut to15 ft-lbs.

    49. Tighten the 10mm bolt that secures the nose support bracket to the idler pulley bracket. Torque to 30 ft-lbs.

    50. Tighten the socket head cap screw to secure the nose support bracket to the supercharger nose. Torque to 10 ft-lbs.
Image
    51. Check both the power steering pressure hose and return hose for clearance to the supercharger snout. Both lines should not touch the supercharger. Adjust lines as necessary.

    52. Reconnect the fuel inlet banjo fitting to fuel rail. Torque to 22 ft-lbs.

    53. Reconnect all four fuel injection connectors.

If your vehicle has four oval ports, then follow steps 62 and 63.
Image
    55. Route the crankshaft position sensor connector down through the opening between the intake port one and intake port two of the supercharger manifold and connect to the crankshaft position sensor.

    56. Route detonation sensor connector through the intake manifold between ports two and three, and then connect to the detonation sensor.

    57. Reconnect power steering idle up connector. Install the OE wiring bracket on to the super charger stud. Torque nylock nut to 15 ft-lbs. See (Figure 27).

Image
    59. Check the OE intake chamber that was removed from the vehicle. Look at the quantity and location of the PCV breather fitting that are next to the throttle body surface. See (Figure 29).
Image
    60. Check the intake chamber to make sure that the quantity and location of the PCV / breather fittings match the OE intake chamber. See (Figure 30). NOTE: The intake chamber is photographed off the engine for clarity. If the fittings match, then proceed with Step 68. If the fittings do not match, then use the supplied fittings to duplicate the previous /breather fittings in the OE intake chamber. Re-use the 16mm nylon washers to seal the fittings into the intake chamber.

    61. If vehicle has EGR, install the EGR temperature sensor (Arrow A) to the intake chamber. See (Figure 30). Otherwise, install the supplied 10mm x 1.25 x 12mm long bolt. Teflon thread tape is recommended.

    62. If vehicle has EGR then proceed with Steps 62 through 75, If vehicle has no EGR, then skip to Step 68.

On vehicles that are running low boost kits, the computer will make adjustments for the increase in air to the engine. Please know that the vehicles will not run properly until the computer makes the necessary adjustments. It will take around two tanks of gas or several hundred miles (approx). Our High Boost Kits will Require the install of the FTC Split Second piggy back fuel and timing controller. See instructions below of this for the High Boost Controller install instructions.

NOTE: In order to reach optimum performance the vehicle must be driven several hundred miles. Usually two tanks of fuel. This will allow the ECU to fully adjust to the additional air flow. Premium fuel is required to be used.
