You must also drain about 1 gallon of coolant from the vehicle and remove the upper radiator hose. Refer to the user manual for a full list of engine parts that you must remove.

Raise your vehicle, unplug the existing injectors from the wiring harness, and connect the harness to the new injectors. To attach the turbocharger to the engine, remove the belt from the water pump pulley, and pull the belt to the supercharger pulley. Then remove the point D pins, and tighten the jam nut to lock the bolt in position. Fill the turbocharger with one bottle of oil.

After assembling the intercooler, use the provided clamps and hose splices to install its hose sections to the cooling lines, and then tighten the lines. With the intercooler in place, attach the power steering cooler bracket to the tab on the bottom of the intercooler. Install all hoses and clamps, and bolt the provided tube support bracket to the inner fender on the passenger's side.

Raise the vehicle, and replace the fuel pump with the one provided in the kit. Check all parts, and fill all fluids to proper levels. Make absolutely sure to refer to the user manual of your supercharger.
