    Gainesville, Florida.

    A couple of tips for before and during the install: make sure you go through the kit and double check everything is there. Mine came with two boxes of spark plugs but no injectors. Had to call them to ship them to me. Second The provided belt was too short. I had to go to autozone to buy the next size up, autozone carries continental belts.

    Id be interested to know if you run into the throttle transition problem. Please keep us updated.

    The guy helping me lift the unit onto the block actually broke the included tensioner trying to “help me” by installing the belt. It’s pretty tight. We’re naturally inclined to want to put it over the SC pulley last, but the included one should fit if you do a smooth idler pulley last.

    I was trying to put it over the top smooth idler pulley on the adjuster arm bracket(under the supercharger pulley last. No luck. Next size up in the continental lineup is 15mm longer? I'll have to look at the belt box again to be sure. But goes on with no problem. Can you post up the belt model number included in your kit?

    Belt in the kit is a continental 4060820.

    Oh geez...... No wonder why mine didnt fit. So they do not pack the same belt size in their kits. Mine came with 4060812 a full .8 inches shorter than yours. I had to move up to 4060817. IMG_20190414_124400.jpg

    Hate hearing these things especially as mine is being built as we speak.

    Did it come with the new and proved IAT sensor and harness?

    I’m sure @Edelbrock Tech will get these things sorted out...

    I have faith!!

    They all come with the new sensor now, they updated this as soon as OP brought it up. Although I haven't had a issue with the plastic one

    With all the comments about the plastic IAT. had to go double check mine. I got my kit a little under a month ago. Unless this is brass coated in black paint, This looks like plastic to me. Can anyone confirm what version I have? IMG_20190416_150859.jpg

    Yeah that's the plastic one, same one on my car, zero issues and it's gotten as cold as high 20's since I did my blower

    Yah, I've heard of a few people who are running the plastic sensor without issues. I'm pretty sure it's the OEM last-gen GT500 sensor. Whatever the issue is it's a combination of the Edelbrock tune and the plastic sensor.

    I don't think it is just the Edelbrock tune. VMP sells a brass replacement for the Roush kits to fix issues with the plastic sensor on those.

    I think the VMP kit is because Roush uses IAT2 for the runners and keeps the MAF reading as well. I don’t think SCT/nGauge can flash that, which is why you have to have a dealer flash the tune or mail the ECU off to Roush. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    You probably are correct. I had not thought about the flash method.

    Ok, got mine in last week and installed this weekend. All works fine but I have a couple of questions? Did anyone do anything with the connectors taken off of the back of the stock intake? By my count there were 4 connectors to unhook. I looked all over my instructions and did not seem them referred to again. Next, I have zero oil pressure by the gauges. I have oil and the car runs fine but somewhere in the wiring, my oil sensor stopped working. Could one of those disconnected harnesses from the factory intake be causing this problem. I would call Tech Support but they are closed for the weekend. Otherwise, this thing is phenomenal!

    Awesome, glad your install went well. The 4 connectors that were on the intake aren't used in the Edelbrock system. I ended up taping mine and zip-tying them to the harness that runs along the firewall.

    No insight for you on the oil thing...mine's a nonPP so I just get an "OK" in my digital gauges. The sending unit I believe is by the oil filter. Might want to pull the belly cover back off and make sure you didn't know the connector loose while pulling everything apart. Good luck.

    Nothing to worry about with the connectors.
    Did they supply a tune for a PP car? If not, that would easily explain the zero reading.

    I actually went with a Lund tune, have used them for years in the past and have been very happy with their work. I will double check my connections. I have not floored it yet due to the basic tune from Lund and ensuing datalogging but at half throttle it sets you back. Going to be a very happy camper soon!

    Great job!!

    Any hiccups on the install other than the 4 connectors? How was the drilling and tapping?

    I’ve printed the 31 page instruction manual - is this the correct one? Any omissions or errors in the instructions? Anything to watch for or advice for the install?

    Hoping mine is in this week...

    Thanks again!!! Torinate
