I just bought a Used Kit , the Charger and Lower radiator seems to be in good shape but everything else has wear and tear.

I'm going to replace the Air filter with a :
AFE Build your Own (http://afepower.com/shop/custom/filter.php)

Oil filter relocation kit is the old crappy kind so I bought a :
Moroso 23682 sandwich plate. Looks to be of great quality like the Mocal brand.

I will post reviews after the Install.

Well I'm interested in what your doing. I'm personally made the decision to go turbo. Mainly cause I can build the kit up over time and I haven't ran across a supercharger lol

I built my Pw smaller pulley for higher boost 17 lbs. But I think when I sent it out to get the pulley put on they screwed it up.i had trouble with it so I sent it to stiegmeier or something like that to get fixed. They fixed it and the same thing happened again. I had it dynoed 270 to the wheels. Had Tom fix a lot of problems from the tune it was running awesome but I guess it can't handle high boost. So now I am selling the kit as is. Not sure what is wrong with it don't care going turbo now.

You might of had some Final compression problems, I saw you had an SVT and I know the dynamic compression is quiet higher than the Zx3's.

Has anyone else had problems with the smaller pulleys??
