Nice looking tube fenders. They were the first set that I built for my wrangler. They always look better on a red jeep.

Thanks! Red and black go nicely I think. Funny how Jeep parts get recycled so much.

Here they are painted and finished. I think I might add a flare to them later though.

Thanks, They are strong as hell too. No more crunched stock fenders! I put some TJ rear flares that I picked up from another member.

I'll try to get some close pictures tomorrow. It was pretty easy to install. I used the stock a/C compressor mounting holes to secure a plate to mount the blower. I used 1/8" plate. I had to use some spacers to raise the blower high enough for the discharge to clear the valve cover. Line the blower pulley up with the other pulleys, mark, drill holes in the plate and bolt it together. The stock Eaton pulley makes about 5 psi. I bought a smaller pulley that makes about 8 psi. A couple 2.75" couplings and a 90 make up the plumbing.
Installing the blower is cake. Very easy. Tuning it in is where the challenge is.
I used gtp 36lb injectors with increased base fuel pressure and a gtp 2 bar map sensor. I also bought a map sensor voltage adjuster on Ebay to fine tune as best I could.
I tried 24lb injectors, stock map sensor, and an fmu, but it just was not enough fuel.
A wideband o2 sensor is also a necessity. A safe air/fuel ratio under boost is critical.

a map sensor and injectors out of a grand prix gtp? Are the inturnals of the motor stock and are you running stock spark plugs? Hows the afr at wot? I like this idea a lot, hows the preformance gain over stock?

The engine is stock internally. I use champion rc9yc plugs. Ironically they are the same plugs I used in my forced induction 5.0 Mustangs. I gap them @ .032. The enricher module allows a richer mixture under part throttle boost when the computer is still trying to stay in closed loop. It is fully adjustable and I have it set around 13 to 1. Under open loop it drops to about 11.8 to 1 and gets as rich as 11.0 as rpm's climb. I still have the fmu on it and either need to change the disk/ratio or remove it all together.
It has been averaging 15 mpg too. 16 before the blower.
The injectors and map sensor are from a grand prix gtp. Performance is phenomenal. It hauls ass for a big Jeep. I can do 75 on the highway with maybe an inch of throttle. I've raced my 318 zj and a 4.0l tj and absolutely smoked them. It was not even close. I can only guess 300ish horsepower.

Bypass tee made from parts store exhaust stuff.

Simple plate and spacers to mount the blower. I'm still waiting for my "custom" aluminum spacers to be made, so please excuse the booty fab suspension bushing/hardware store spacers...

Brake booster check valve on the ccv line, and a breather in the valve cover to vent the crankcase under boost. The clear tubing to the discharge piping is the methanol injection kit from coolingmist. It works off an adjustable boost switch. I think it is a much better way to intercool a vehicle that makes boost at low vehicle speed over a typical front mount.

this seems prety legit, have any issue with drive line failures yet? Any clutch upgrade? what did you do about the vaccume disconnect on the d30? how does the supercharger handle the mud?

ive never really messed around with any forced inducton my self, but ive read quite a bit on the gm3.8 supercharged
