32mm. I have one if you want to borrow

You might find this link helpful

I also have the installation manual

You want to make sure that bolt gets torqued back to 305 lbs. Mine loosened up off road causzing my oil pressure to drop and power steering to not work so well.

I don't have a torque wrench that will do that though

Robbie has a Torque Wrench that will do it, and it is a big sucker... Sounds like Mr. Farr is getting ready to make this a "super charged" year

Got the crank bolt and pulley removed yesterday. I've removed all the various pieces and parts from the front of the engine, next up is the supercharger itself.

OK, so I have the supercharger pretty much removed from the donor vehicle. Here are some pictures.

First pic: supercharger parts. There are more parts, but these are the sexy ones.

Second pic: the donor 80 now has more room under the hood.

My last item to remove is the plug where the stock brake booster nipple comes out of the intake manifold. I can't seem to get it out with an allen wrench, so I'll be heating it up with a MAPP gas torch here in a bit.

I need to get it our because I plan to install the stock intake from my truck back on the donor truck -- the engine runs great, and I'd like to keep it complete.

A few questions that have occurred to me as I'm working on this. I'm worried about the extra heat from the supercharger.

1. Cooling: I'm thinking that it might be a good idea to take my stock radiator out of the vehicle and have it professionally cleaned and serviced. I doubt it's been out since it was installed in 1996 (although it has fairly recent coolant in it -- about 2 years old).

Good idea? Waste of time?

2. What's it cost to get an aluminum radiator, and how much of a difference would that make in cooling?

3. How much of a difference does that JDM pusher fan make?

4. The only other ideas I know about for keeping things cool are:

a) snorkel
b) louvers (like treeroot).
c) reroute air through the front turn signal (like 60wag).

I'd probably be most interested in the louvers. How much of a difference do they make?

Any other good ideas for cooling?

What I did for mine was just new radiator and change the fluid in the fan clutch to 10k cst. It seems to run cool enough, never really gets above 200-205 even when I'm pushing it hard up passes and such.

Though I have looked into the louvers, and I might still do that, they just look cool.

I have a 94 style radiator in mine. It's OEM, cheaper than the 96-97 and someone told me it is superior in cooling to the stock one. I don't know how effective cleaning is. It might be fine.

I would go ahead and replace the thermostat if you haven't in a while

Doing the Blue Fan Clutch Mod really helps as well. I run around 180-190 deg all year running around town. I did not re-adjust the temp, just changed the fluid with a 50/50 mix of 6000 and 10000 CST. I have fluid left or you can just get it at the Remote Control Shops.

The additional pusher fan helps in really hot weather where you are not moving much and have the AC on or really working the motor towing up a mtn pass. The JDM fit in real easy, but there are others out there

The snorkel lowered the temp ofr the air at the intake about 25 deg (based on my OBD II tests) so cooler air and likely in faster flow will only help the SC

If you have advanced your timing, you will want to set it back to stock.

I also swapped the spark plugs. Part numbers are in the garage, but I believe Cdan said they were fro an MR2 and had a hotter temp.

I don't have the louvers, not sure if Mike addressed were the water would go yet. He picked the perfect location, but one of them is over a fuse box. Mike will have to update us on that.

I would recommend getting a seperate Temp and Boost gauge and installing them on the A pillar like I have.
