I have in the truck. As far as power there is a lot more power and torque. At least what I experienced. No change on mpg. It was 9 then it is 9 now. I have been dealing with a lot of over heating issues. To de point that i thought about selling it and do an engine swap. So, upgrade your cooling system, get a intercooler, and i have an electric fan for low speed high torque situation. On the beach i was close to loose my engine. I recommend to do everything together to avoid having to stop on a trip. Normally i will turn the heaters and that is enough to lower the temperature. Sam has the complete set up and jason has everything but the intercooler. I dont want to discourage you but do everything at once. Once the sc is in the engine bay there is not room to do anything in it without taking a bunch of parts out.

Good to know. I'll look into an intercooler, but wasn't planning it. That makes since though. My Challenger is blown and intercooled. Never had a heat problem but it lives in the garage.

On the LC, I bought a fan (still in the box), changed the thermostat to 170°, and have a new water pump that I'll install. Some pipes, cables and wires are heat wrapped (while I was prepping for the turbo). Was going to vent to hood (might look back into that).

Thanks for the info.

@Roxx where are these 1FZFE supercharger intercoolers you mention?
This is what I found so far. Didn't read it all yet.

Let me know if you decide to sell it ;)

While I would love to have a turbo setup, that's a lot of money. I have at least 5 major house projects in front of even considering a turbo.

Welcome to the SC club.! There's a lot that can be done with the SC. It can get out of hand quickly. From aluminum ceramic coatings to cutting holes for vents, adding an Intercooler, etc...
I have an air-to-air made by @Atoyo1031 along time ago. Running a Subaru WRX small scoop.
In the process of adding the Landtank SC MAF kit with WRX injectors and a 2.8inch SC pulley. Here's how it used to look.

I met up with @fourtrax a day too early to assist with some wrenching on one of his projects. So will greased my hubs and driveshafts. While talking about the supercharger, we decided that I should paint it since my valve cover is painted and the supercharger isnt installed yet.

So. . what do you all think?
