Try to stay out of boost, and try to not shift above 3K. Which means, you may have to accelerate lightly.

What you can do is install the blower, associated brackets and belt replacement, install your intercooler, but leave your stock airbox and injectors in place.
In other words, your Procharger would just be blowing out air on the outlet side of your intercooler.
Test fit all your piping to the throttle body, and when you're ready to tune, drive to where you're tuning, and install the piping to the throttle body and replace your injectors.
You won't overspin the blower since its controlled by the belt. Your car will just feel a little underpowered.
If you need a better explanation, just ask.

Big thing is just stay out of boost. I drove about 45 miles to get tuned with a Procharger. No problem.

Did the same with a turbo (though, only about 10 miles). Up hills, in traffic, downtown, etc. Key point, stay in vacuum.

The really safe side would be to leave it disconnected like I explained above.
And don't forget, leave your stock injectors in whichever way you choose to get to the tuning shop.

If you got an electric boost gauge, it should come with the sender/sensor.
If its a mechanical boost gauge, there's no sender/sensor you'd just connect it to the vacuum line.
As for wideband a/f, yes, you would need the wideband gauge and a wideband sensor.
