2014 Supercharger Install in Progress!

I just stopped by the dealer and got a few pictures of the process:











The intake runners are dirtier than I would have figured at 9k miles...

I can't wait to have it back. As soon as I get it I am going to go pick up the camper for the weekend!

The tech said it should be done today but would not promise, I don't blame him...

I wanted to hang out with the guy and watch and maybe learn something, but I figured I was pushing my luck as it was...especially if I want it back today!

I'm sure they love customers in the shop...

They started on it first thing this morning and are still not done yet. So much for 6 - 8 hrs...at least I'm paying a flat rate!

Kind of ruins the weekend of camping though, we'll see.

Just got off the phone and supposedly the "master" tech worked on it for 10 - 11 hours and still needs a few hours tomorrow...

There goes the better part of my weekend.

But, like I told them, I would rather that they take their time and do it right, rather than rushing!

Not a bad price. I'm thinking of doing this soon. I wonder how experienced my local dealer shops are at installing these.

Are you going to install an oil catch can? It's probably a good idea with a supercharger.

I doubt you could get it done cheaper using a dealer for purchase and install. Which is a must if you want the full warranty.

That price is outstanding. I paid $1,000 more and many thought that was a good price.

The price of the SC and fit kit went up recently. A lot.

That is what I first thought. Maybe they want to use it to negotiate a better price?

This is exactly what I thought! I think I could have done it faster...I really wanted to retain my warranty though. I have a lifetime powertrain warranty, and although I have limited faith that it will be everything I hope, I'm not going to give it away either.

Sorry for my limited responses over the weekend. As soon as I picked up the truck, we headed out for a weekend of camping. The truck pulls my VRV so much easier now and, as I hoped, it holds gears much better!
