Question JRSC help

So I am buying a JRSC from a fellow member and I want to make sure that i have all the info on it before I install it on my car. So here are a few questions. (if anyone has any advice feel free to share)

Can i modify my CAI to work with it?

Can I install it and drive it before i get my car tuned for it? (when i say drive it i mean drive it to the shop where i am tuning it)

What octane gas should i use?

Is there any special maintenance that needs to be done to it?

Are replacement belts hard to get/ how do i know what size belt do i need?

CAI: most likely.

Tune: i believe JR used a cheater box in lieu of a tune, a tune would be better.

Octane: still have a knock sensor, but the added cylinder pressure might make you want to bump up a few octane points. with the cost per tank only being a couple of dollars, it doesn't hurt to run the better stuff.

Maintenance: i believe they are sealed with a special synthetic lube... changing that might be an idea?

belt: there are a few posters with JRSC, somebody should be able to help you with that, its also a bit dependent on what pulley you are using.

yes, you can modify a CAI to run, however, its a permenant mod to the CAI as it has to be hacked up. yes, you can use a cheater box. if ur getting a dyno tune, then you can simply call ur dyno tuner and he will write you a base tune so you can get it there. as for octane, 91 or higher. replacement belts are just the same as any other, grab them at ur hardware store! every 50k, change the oil, but thats about it!

^^^ No filter and I just used GM supercharger synthetic oil for the grand prix one 4 oz. bottle is all you need. http://www.mossmotors.com/graphics/p...6066-ZX3BB.pdf and here is a link to the installation instructions it list belt length and almost everything else you will need.

From Eaton's website:
Quote:
Q: How often do I need to change the oil in my supercharger?
A: The sealed oil reservoir in a supercharger is designed to last the life of the vehicle. Changing the oil is not recommended unless you suspect contamination, leakage, or other issues like bearing failure. Also, if your vehicle has an abnormally heavy duty cycle, such as racing or towing, you could consider changing the oil at regular intervals such as 20k, 30k, 50k, or 100k miles depending on usage.
