depends on if you get your parts new, used, rigged or pretty, tune yourself or someone else tunes. 750-1500+ is a reasonable range.

I can use the 2.5 bar sensor right? I don't need to spend 70 bucks on the 2 bar sensor that zzp sells for the LE5?

It'd actually be better lol. Well atleast it was for me idk what the rest do. I rewired pigtail in and then took the iat wire from the maf and wired it into the iat2 wire from the 2.5 so I can now monitor iat2 temps

Because I can't find it anywhere, how far does the alternator have to be spaced out? 1/2 inch?

You shouldn't have to space the alternator at all? I didn't have to anyway. We just removed it, installed some parts and reinstalled it.

depends on the pulley set up you're using. If using the oem LSJ pulley setup the alternator is spaced by the bracket that holds the tensioner pulley. I believe its about 1/2" space but i cant confirm that.

make your own, Buy the injector pigtails and wire them in to your oem harness. There's a few other things you'll have to wire in like the MAP sensor and also the throttle body pigtails unless you've got a harness for that

Okay. Yeah I have the throttle body harness. As far as an LSJ MAP sensor and pigtail, do you have extras of them by any chance? I asked Mongo, he wasn't sure.

For IC pump you can use the stock lsj brackets or you can buy zzp's little bracket and mount it pretty much anywhere.

stock H/e works great use it.

ask around for injectors someone is always selling em

I saw someone did this to an 08 Sport... Does the ABS get in the way of a CAI?

Researching I have found some. ZZP said it took a special CAI which is why I asked.

The list of items and work necessary to do this that isn't in the build is too long to list. If your interested in putting a SC on a 2.2 or 2.4, contact me.

Hi there - I was reading the parts list for the LSJ supercharger swap - one item is a bit confusing:

Stage 2 Belt (Part# 12597993; requires one rib be cut off)

Ok can someone show me what is meant by cutting one rib off the belt?

The OEM belt is a 6 rib belt. The LE5 has 5 rib accessory pulleys. You can either source a 6 rib balancer, AC Compressor and alternator or cut one of the ribs off to fit the OEM accessory pulleys. A new utility knife can easily cut an entire rib off if done safely.
