I went with a smaller pulley from Vortech (3.8"), so this added some time to the install, as the supercharger must be taken off the bracket to do this. If you keep your stock 4" pulley from the 540 kit, it will take a little less time to do the upgrade. I'll post up a more detailed review after I get some more seat time, but I will say this: The IC upgrade was totally worth the money. There is a noticeable difference in smoothness, power, and consistency of the kit.
Good to see someone else on the forums doing their own work.

I really wish someone would create a thread showing the install step by step or even better a youtube video. Would be great advertising for the product and if something like this existed I would have probably already purchased a kit since I plan on doing the install myself.
