Started my pro charger install

So I started it and yikes!!! Its not to bad of a kit to put together but you have to re read the instuctions 2 or 3 times to make sure you read it right.

Any way after hitting the wrong bolt and letting all my freon out I finally got started LOL

The brackets are not that bad once you figure it out how ever getting the belt on is another thing. Im thinking they sent me to small a belt but DAM!!! Has to go on. I pretty much gave up after that since it was getting late.

I also wanted to see how the rest of the plumbing would work. DOESNT look good at all due to me having the 2000 Focus RS euro front. No room at all. So Im going to have to do some custom work.

Wouldnt be a prob if I had a US spec bumper or my stock on.

Im also curious if I can even find a FMIC to fit in there.

I well post updates.
