God do I wish I had the cash to do this.. I hated the whine for the longest time.. But now I really want it bad..

Well after my card is paid off here soon I'm probably doing my full suspension. Then after that is paid off I might buy a pre-assembled s/c package.. We'll see how it goes.. But it's threads like this that make me really want to..

im doing this more for the awesome whine sound lol. i mean the extra horses are great but id rather hear something nasty besides my rumbling exhaust. i can see my 3" intake already with a ported throttle body and plugged silencer holes with a 2.5" pulley, louder SC than my exhaust! lol

I am cheating, lol. I am going with a 2.8 pulley and boost limiting it at 8 psi so I make good power quicker and it will scream, also plugging the sc silencer holes this week. waht did you guys use?

I think we need a complete list of all parts needed.

I know it would be kinda hard to come up with every part but it would help

I CANNOT TAKE CREDIT FOR THIS LIST!! whoever put it together thank you.

Parts List:
Eaton M62 Supercharger
Supercharger Gasket
Stock LSJ Intake Manifold
Intake Manifold Bottom Mount
Intake Manifold Gasket (Part #12597855)
2.5 Bar Map/Intake Temp Sensor (on upper left of LSJ manifold)
2.5 Bar Pigtail (Part #88988320)
Bosch/LSJ Intercooler Pump
Intercooler Pump Wiring Pigtail or Butt Connecters
Intercooler Pump Mounting Bracket (rebelautoworx.com)
Cobra Heat Exchanger (Used from a 03 Mustang Cobra)
Cobra Heat Exchanger Brackets (custom or bwoodyperformance.com)
42.5# Injectors (recommended)
Injector Harness
Wideband Air/Fuel Ratio Gauge (THIS IS NOT AN OPTIONAL ITEM!!!)
Boost/Vacuum Gauge
Stage 2 Belt (Part# 12597993; requires one rib be cut off)
Custom Idler Pulley with Mounting Bracket (rebelautoworx.com)
Extended Upper Radiator Hose
Coolant Reservoir Tank (Cobalt or Ion Recommend)
NGK Copper Spark Plugs (Part# LFR6A-11)
SS/SC intake
10ft. x ¾” I.D. Hose
10ft x ¼” I.D. Hose
4ft. x ½” I.D. Hose
Small and Large Hose clamps.
3 x 1/8th NPT ¼” Barb Fittings
Self Tapping Sheet Metal Screws (Mounting H/E brackets)
6M 25mm Bolts
6M 90mm Studs with Locking Nuts
8M 50mm Bolts
Water Wetter Coolant
1/8th NPT Drill Tap
21/64th Drill bit (for the 1/8th tap)
20 gauge wiring
Zip Ties
Electrical Tape
Plastic Wiring Sleeves


Optional:
LSJ Throttle Body (requires some wiring)
Aero Force Interceptor Gauge
Gauge Pillar
Oil Pressure Gauge

Notes:
• A 2 bar map sensor will work instead of a 2.5 bar map sensor, however the 2.5 bar map sensor from the LSJ will also read intake manifold temps.
• Stock LSJ Injectors will not be sufficient for this setup. the IDC will be too high
• The stock LSJ belt may also be used with this setup, however it may require a larger idler pulley and there is no guarantee on the fitment of the larger idler on the rebel bracket.
• I’ve heard that the stock LE5 Injector harness will work with the 42.5lb Injectors however I cannot confirm this.

Tool List:
Wrench Set
Spark Plug Socket
Drill with Assorted Bit Sizes.
Soldering Iron (optional)
Screwdrivers
Jack
2x Jack Stands
Creeper (optional)
Grinding Tool
Vice Grips
Box Knife
Teflon Tape
Allen Keys

Clearing up some Common Misconceptions:
1. You DO NOT need the LSJ Alternator for this setup, however you will need to cut one rib off the stage two belt
2. To use the LSJ Throttle body you need to swap some wiring on the T/B pigtail, i will have updates later on
3. This is not a BOLT ON, this setup will require a tune, and is unsafe to even attempt to drive if it is not tuned.

Preparation:
1. I highly recommend removing the front bumper, headlights, headlight mounting brackets, front wheels and fender lining, REMOVAL OF THESE ITEMS ARE UP TO YOU TO FIGURE OUT, HOWEVER THEY’RE ALL PRETTY SIMPLE.
2. If you plan on using a LSJ intake you will need to remove the windshield wiper fluid reservoir from the driver’s side fender.
3. You will need to cut open the stock engine wiring harness and relocated the MAF and Throttle Body Wires to the other side of the engine compartment. Allow Plenty of slack in the wiring, they can always be tucked away later.
4. I also would recommend setting up two tables in your workspace. The first with all the items that need to go on the car, and the second for the items you take off the car.
5. Stock the fridge with drinks and snacks, this will take a while!
6. If you are not already using fully synthetic motor oil, you should probably switch over before installing your supercharger. The LE5 requires 5 quarts of 5W-30
