JRSC install question

I just finished installing a jrsc on my 03 svt. I bought the kit used and it didn't have the lower support brace that bolts from back of the block to the bottom of the intake manifold. I want to go test everthing on the car since I'm all finished. Do you think it will be ok to drive it without that brace for a couple of days until the one I've ordered gets here?

Tough call, if you do drive it just don't go hard on it. But that supercharger is quite a bit of weight to be sitting on the intake manifold alone... (I have the same setup)

Looks like I won't have to worry about that right now anyways. I tried installing an aftermarket tensioner on to the alternator bracket and when I tightened it down, it broke the bracket. I just tried ordering a replacement bracket from the company and they're on back order. So I can't go any further until I get the new alternator bracket put back on. EUG!!!

Too much torque can brake one or more bols on the intake base.
