Since I have limited space under my hood, due to my Paxton taking almost half, putting an intercooler would be a hell of a job, it will probably be more costly as well,... intercooler ain't chaep.

Are these kits pretty easy to install, for a moderate DIY kind of person???

Obviously tuning would be a chalenge, but I could always swing by TPC and have them doing the final touch.

Anyone has done this on supercharge 3.2 before, from what I gather the 3.2 intake is a more direct flow path than the 930, so this should be a great application,.. right?

It was a relatively easy but tedious install for me. Installing the controller was the most time consuming process as I had to fabricate a sheet-metal insert in the center console to mount the controller to. If I had to do it over again, I would get the controller that looks and fits like a standard 52mm gauge. You do have to have to tap into a vacuum/boost source (brake booster before the check valve), switched and always hot 12v power and a relay, as well as assemble the pump/tank combo and mount it along with running the wires to and from the controller and the injector line to the engine compartment. I ran my plumbing zip tied to the AC lines but protected by plastic wiring sleeve. I chose to braze on a bung to mount my injector rather than simply drill and tap the pipe. All in all, I think it took the better part of a weekend to get it finished.
