You already need hptuners to tune the engine and It will do the tcm as well, so nothing? Right? My warranty needs to run out before I do this and as I either drive the company vehicle or the Jeep these days that will be another 4 years........

ok sorry for not reading the whole thread but im wondering this,

since this was the 2.4, what was the different things u needed that the 2.2's dont need.

being a 2.2, if i used the stock pulley, would i still need to get the stage 2 belt and cut off 1 rib of it?? or could i just use the regualar belt with the supercharger??

The issue with the stock s/c belt is that it has 5 ribs and the pully on the 2.4's only support 4. If the 2.2 has a 5 ribbed belt to begin with, you wouldnt have to cut the belt. most likely you'd be able to use the stock ss/sc belt if you were able to pick up an idler pulley/assembly from a ss/sc

the main differences would be the belt routing. everything else is pretty much the same. the ecotecs have a lot in common

that is good numbers but I don't know if it's an advantage to go SC but look with 2500$ and discounts you get 220-230 WHP but with the hahn racecraft TK you can get 255 to 265 WHP maybe more and it's 3500$ I think. If you were me, will you buy Hanh TK or go SC?

Honestly if i were looking to boost i'd look at hahns 20g turbo kits they have. Get the one with everything but tuning and injectors and have someone tune it for you. The 20g will be able support more hp then the 2.4 kit they have. Some people have complained about the hahn tune w/ the 2.4 kit hince the reason on what i suggested.

there were two "custom" parts. and even those are easy to fabricate. everything else were off the shelf, oem parts.

Yeah I understand. If someone have a kit to sell I'll probably buy it but if not ill go turbo. It's too tough and long to get all the parts.
