Alpine's instructions are OK, but not the greatest, ya know? If anyone knows of an available DIY, or if installing a kit soon and could DO a good one (with more/better pictures than the Alpine instructions have) it would be VERY helpful for those of us installing kits in the near future...

Thanks! :3_winkthu

idk, ive taken off alot of parts on my engine.. intake manifold and such. i havent touched anything lower than the heads though. and from pictures, it cant be too hard. 8 hours seems like a long time... the hardest part would be the belt imo lol. belts and i are no strangers... and not friends either.

Alpine Stage 0 install instructions by Me.
If you see anything needing attention PLEASE post.
Don't understand any of this, if so than you shoulldn't attempt the install!!

IMPORTANT!! Fill vehicle with 91 OCTANE FUEL or better, make sure you do this before going into a boosted condition. Install STIIFF MOTOR MOUNTS (NGM), motor torque will twist stock mounts to extremes!

1. Disconnect the battery.

2. Remove the air intake.

3. Disconnect the ground strap from the rear of the intake manifold using a 10mm socket.

4. Unfasten accelerator cable from rear bracket using a 12mm wrench. Disconnect cable from the throttle body.

5. Disconnect the brake booster vacuum hose, wiring connectors and water hoses from the throttle body and intake manifold. Mark wiring connectors before disconnecting.

6. Remove the 3 bolts securing the rear underside of the intake manifold to the support bracket using a 12mm socket.

7. Remove the remaining 5 bolts and 2 nuts securing the inlet manifold using a 12mm socket. Save hardware for re-use. Cover or block the inlet ports on the engine.

8. Cut the clips holding the wiring harness and loosen harness from the clips.

9. Remove the manifold support bracket from the rear of the engine using a 12mm socket. Save the bolts for re-use.

10. Remove the wiring harness from the clips on the firewall, cut open the tape and pull the connectors to the air temperture sensor and both throttle body plugs towards driver side of car, increasing the wiring length at least 3 inches. Further extend the air temp. sensor plug by splicing in the supplied lengths of wire. Stagger the splices about an inch apart to eliminate having a bulge in the wiring harness. Cover all the exposed wires with the supplied split-loom, re-tape and install the harness back in the clips.

11. Both heater hose locate at firewall need to be trimmed back so they do not interfere with Supercharger actuator and associated linkage located underneath SuperCharger. Disconnect both heater hoses at the firewall and trim 1”or more from the ends. Re-route hose so it goes under nearby wiring harnesses. Re-attach both hoses, rotating them down as far as possible. Cutting back hose fittings on firewall might help clearance.

12. Remove the belt from the pulleys by rotating the spring-loaded tensioner clockwise. Loosen or remove the 2 bolts securing the tensioner to the engine allowing the belt to pass behind the pulley.

13. Slide the supplied large diameter washers onto two of the Factory bolts and thread part way into the two left threaded bosses. Leave at least a _” gap so the supercharger support bracket will slide behind easily.

14. With a 3rd bolt, attach the ground strap to the threaded boss on the far right of Head, tighten using a 12mm socket.

15. The power steering hoses need to be modified for belt clearance. Lift, move or pry the top hose up and toward the engine until the top hose is above the timing belt cover and the centerline is 2 inches above the `V' of the notch in the timing cover.The bottom pipe should be lifted until it touches the top pipe. Use a pipe bending bar to pry with so as not to kink and damage the pipes.

16. Routing the engine coolant through the throttle body is an attempt to heat up the throttle body during the winter and keep condesation from freezing in the throttle body For people in warm climates, having the coolant flow through the throttle body only has the effect of heating up the incoming air charge (because the engine coolant is rather hot). This is not really desirable for warm climates.

For warmer climates
Remove the 2 water hoses that heat the throttle body by compressing the spring clips.
Loop back the longer of the 2 hoses bypassing coolant flow through the throttle body.

For colder climates
Remove the 2 water hoses that heat the throttle body by compressing the spring clips.
Cut the supplied length of hose in half and replace existing hoses using supplied hose clamps.

17. Fit the new belt on the crank and AC compressor, slip behind the pulley on the tensioner and tighten the tensioner bolts. (see belt routing diagram in appendices)

18. Remove the air temperature sensor and the 90 degree fitting from the rear of the Factory intake manifold using a 12mm and a 21mm wrench.

19. Separate the throttle body from the Factory intake manifold being careful not to damage the gasket.

20. IMPORTANT In this step you will be installing and removing the Supercharger assembly. Be extremely careful not to damage the plastic actuator canister and delicate linkage when removing and installing the Supercharger. Do not set the Supercharger assembly right side up on the workbench as it may break the actuator canister. Do not lift or carry the Supercharger assembly by the actuator. Uncover the intake ports on the engine.

Test fit the Supercharger/Manifold assembly to the engine to align the support bracket. Use old gasket while doing this procedure. Super Charger should sit flat as possible a top the lower intake. This fit is most important

a. Be sure that the two nuts securing the support bracket to the Super charger are loose so the bracket can be moved for adjustment.

b. The Factory Bolts will be reused to fasten the new supercharger assembly to the engine. The two open slots in the bracket will slip over the two bolts left loose on the rear of the engine Head. This is a tight fit to reach the far (driver side) bolt, fore arm scraps but do able.

c. Temporarily install and tighten at least four manifold bolts/nuts. Tighten passenger side nut (13mm wrench) securing the support bracket to the Super Charger manifold to lock it in position. Check to see that the heater hoses do not interfere with the actuator linkage. Re-adjust hoses if needed.

21. Remove the Supercharger/Manifold assembly and tighten both support bracket nuts fully.

22. Locate the vacuum hose assembly in the kit. You will notice that there are two different sized vacuum hoses connected with a “tee”. Attach the end with the larger size hose to the black actuator canister on the supercharger. Support the canister with one hand as you push the hose on. Connect the other end to the nipple on the side of the new intake manifold.

23. Install the 90 degree elbow (previously removed from the Factory manifold) into thethreaded port on the throttle body adapter using Teflon paste sealant. The fitting should point toward the throttle body flange and up about 10 degrees. This can be final adjusted once the Supercharger assembly is bolted in place.

24. Apply a 1/16” bead of high temperature automotive silicone sealant to the gasket surface of the new manifold (not needed if using new gasket). Using a 12mm socket, bolt the manifold in place using the factory hardware and torque to 15 ft. lbs. Tighten the two bolts securing the support bracket to the rear of the engine.

25. Install the drive belt using the belt routing diagram in the appendices. The belt should be TIGHT. IT SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BE PULLED OFF WITH YOUR HANDS ONLY!

26. Connect the brake booster hose to the 90 degree elbow you installed in the new manifold. You may want to trim the hose or re-configure it to fit properly.

27. Attach the Factory vacuum hose from the fuel pressure regulator to the open port on the vacuum tee, shortening the hose as necessary.

28. Slide the Factory throttle body gasket over the studs on the new manifold. Fasten the throttle body to the manifold using the factory nuts and one long bolt. The throttle body will be rotated 90 degrees from its original position and the linkage will now be oriented on top. Re-connect the electrical plugs.

28. Connect the remaining hose with the “U” bend to the elbow fitting on the throttle body. This hose may require trimming to clear the intercooler hose.

29. Remove the two throttle cable retaining clips from the Factory manifold. Install on new Manifold

30. Bolt the accelerator cable brackets to the top of the Supercharger. Route the accelerator cable thru installed retaining clips connect cable to the throttle body.

31. Relocate air temperature sensor to Air intake, install Air intake connect sensor and breather vacuum hose.

32. Start engine and check for vacuum leaks. Adjust throttle (and cruise control cables if installed) so throttle operates normally and engine returns to normal idle after mild revving.
TOP OFF engine coolant you'll need some.

Your vehicle is equipped with an OBD2 adaptive memory computer. Because the battery was disconnected and its memory erased, it will need to re-learn its normal operating parameters. With this being said, you will experience running problems unless you drive the vehicle normally (no full throttle acceleration) for at least 10 miles before testing the limits of your newly found power.

Hey Mike - thanks man - I had already searched a bunch and found this already though. I've been hoping for one with Pictures, which would make it a lot more helpful - but seriously, thanks for taking the time to post this!
