There was a shop down Abercorn that tuned the Kpro in my boosted Civic. Can't remember the name and they're probably not even there anymore, but they had a dyno. Interested in seeing numbers.

tick tock, the turn around seemed so promising. We want instant gratification!

And back to the top of your brake system you plan on installing. If you go with the 330 brake system swap, the front is plug-n-play as long as you have the caliper, clips, rotors etc. The rear is the difficult part. You will need a different parking brake, and (I could be wrong on this), but a 330 rear axle. I wanted to do a 330 brake system swap to my 323, I bought everything up off a ZHP (front and rear components), and ended up just selling it all because it was going to be too much of a headache to do the rear.

LOADS of pictures!

As you wish!
Progress has been very good. I've been taking my time installing everything correctly. Making sure that there is room for all the components.

Some of the pictures are huge. Sorry, but I don't really feel like editing it. Mounting the supercharger to the head was a bit of a pain.
If you plan on doing this your self, I recommend having a friend help. I did it my self and it wasn't very fun.
Its just heavy and awkward to handle. But once its mounted, its very stable and feels solid on the head.
Everything past mounting is a breeze. Its just a matter of hooking up harness and vacuum lines.
I still have a few vacuum lines to hook up. Fuel pressure regulator and brake booster.
I also have to mod my AFE box to accommodate the cooling hoses that route though that cavity.
I'm also waiting on the ECU to get back from tuning. Hopefully that will arrive today.
When it dose, I will record and post a video of the first start up and first drive. Stay tuned!
