What's needed after super charger install?

I've decided to go with science of speed supercharger. Is this an easy install and will I need a tune afterwards? Also what else will be needed other than a clutch upgrade?

it'll bolt right in. you just need a diamond crusted titanium Blow Off Valve. tune the radio to 105.7 FM Augusta, GA for some fine rock 'n' roll. other than love, that's all you need.

Good choice, you will not need to upgrade your stock clutch or Pressure plate... I am almost at 400 whp and running stock, no issues.
Depending on which kit you choose, if you go with the tuner kit you will need a tune after install, if you go with the basic kit...no. Any time you change from the OEM ECU to a standalone EMS, like AEM or Hondata you will need a tune.
The install itself is not too hard, the fuel pump install and sometimes breaking the crankshaft pullet nut loose is a PITA, but other than that, just a couple days of having fun under your hood.

Yes, you will need to get it tuned, whether you get a custom tune or one off the shelf.

You might need a clutch, depending on how much increase in power you get. Stock clutch can usually handle right around 300hp. I got around 350hp and the clutch slipped every time i shifted near redline. I upgraded to ACT. Either way, save money for a clutch.

High Performance driving school FIRST. Then maybe we won't see you back here in a few months with a "Parting out my S2000" Thread ...
