No internal mods are necessary. The TB does get repositioned slightly however. You could probably use your cai with it though. I currently use a Focus Sport Cool Flo with mine!

depending what cai u have,,,you can cut the pip a lil to accomodate the length and keep it,,,i recommend you upgrade your throttle body and fuel injector size if u get the supercharger,,,those are a few mods you will need for it to run properly,,,thats what im going to do,,,,,good luck

i dont think the tb and fuel injectors dont HAVE to be upgraded on the svt for a jrsc, im quite sure you could do that, but i hear its not mandatory

No, it wont. There is someone on the SVTP Focus boards who runs a JRSC with a 3.4" pulley and he still has no problems. The only thing that is going out on him is his clutch, but he has had his on for like 12k miles (or something like that) and has raced and shot Nitrous many many times. He has never had a problem with the JRSC.

Yes your warrenty will be voided, and no it won't hurt your engine unless you put it on wrong or just dog your car out. The JRSC kit was made and tested on a stock svtf with no upgrades and it pushes 204whp. So any upgrades u put after will of course increase your pwr.

Well I just got off the phone with SVT and also Ford and basically it boils down to this. If a dealership installs it......they have the choice to warranty the install and any problems it can cause at their own expense. As for the installing a supercharger yourself....it doesnt void the warranty...BUT if you were to, lets say have something fail in your powertrain due to over stress BECAUSE OF the supercharger then that component would no longer be covered because it was an aftermarket item that caused it...not a factory defect. Understand what Im saying? So technically no it doesnt void your vehicle warranty but if the dealership can prove that the supercharger caused the problem your having with it then its will be up to that dealership if they wanna honor the warranty or not.
