When I first got mine they sent me all the piping for a ZX3, so I had to call and have them send me the piping for the SVT. To get all my piping from the intercooler to the MAF tube to work right I had to use a mixture of each kit, and a little fanagaling. I got it to work though.

hey im the one who helped pirahna sc put his on, and it was pretty much straight foward, really just be patient and take your time, also when you do get it installed, let the car run for alteast 10-15 min then shut it down and check ever nut and bolt and then your good for a test drive, after you finished your test drive check everything alteast a million time lol and then go give her hell granted you have a safe tune, also check the injectors on your first start up and make sure there tight and not leaking, that would be fire in a heart beat, good luck and have fun.

oh yea and dont hurt to many other svt owners feelings cuz piranha sc kicks my ass hard everytime and thats only 8 lbs of boost

The intake tubing from the intercooler to the TB for the Procharger kit sucks...I had to basically create my own using the AEM CAI upper tube, their reducer, and a 90 degree mandrel bend pipe, using couplers and a 90 degree elbow that I bought (freakin thing was 72 bucks). All Procharger had to say about it when we called them was "can't you cut some of it down to fix it...you know it IS a tuner kit" :( Also, the MAF tube they sent had the MAF connector pointing straight up, and in a few times running it in the garage caused the wires to chafe a bit and it wore a pretty deep spot in the fire blanket on the hood. No amount of twisting or pushing could get that fixed (including forcing it far enough to put a nice crack in my battery box). Evidently they redesigned the tube to work with both the Zetec and SVT motors, even with the TB's being totally different locations. Some engineer there needs to lay off the crack...

Only other major problem with the install was that the holes on the alternator are elongated a bit and it is just enough to cause the belt to shred (visually, it lined up fine).

Just have to get the tune finished on it now....

hhmm man i dont know what to say about that, when we instaled the upper tube to the tb it went on fine, just alittle adjusting to get it set properly, also when we were installing all the tubes we just slipped them into the couplers with the hose clamps hanging on loosly so when you get all the piping installed you can wiggle and adjust and tubing you need to so theres not stress or strain on them then tighten all the couplers. let me know how she runs after you get her done, lata man.
