Did you just by the blower or did you get the kit? Are you going to do a custom tune or just bolt it on and let the KR tune take it from there?

Ford Racing already discontinued these, but you can still find some distributors that have some of these in stock for a great price.

i need to make my self clear after reading the post .i have 2 shelbys i already have a tvs on my kr i bought the kit for my other shelby . i was just stating that if you own a kr and was thinking about a tvs kit this would be the time to purchsae one.i realize that the kit comes with cold air and tuner . i do not think you can find a new tvs by itself. unless it is used .

I also recently picked one up which I should have installed soon. For some reason, I couldn't see myself with the new blower with the 5.8 stamped on it. The original FRPP TVS looks likes it belongs under the hood of a KR while the 2013 TVS looks out of place IMHO.

The TVS was the best mod I did on my KR. I love it, but the Z06 guys don't like it. Hehehe

Where's the best place to pick up one these? I would love to put a polished version on my red KR.

I have the TVS on one of my KRs and was told by more than one reputable Tuner that the KR tune was sufficient, but if you get to swapping pulleys, etc.., it would be a good idea to get a tune. I went with the L&M high flow elbow and 66mm L&M TB and got a tune. I am very happy with the end results.

FRPP offered a polished version when the TVS first came out. I've been quoted anywhere from $300-$600 to get one polished.

Twicebitten, thanks for the heads up on the discontinued FRPP TVS. I was on the fence about getting one for my other car, but after reading your post I bit the bullet. $1995 from Capital Ford in N.C. They said that they had purchased what was left from Ford Racing and that I got the last one. They were great to work with and if I ever need anything else from FRPP I'll definitely give them a call. :victory:

08krrick, if I can do it I believe just about anyone could. There are a couple of members on TS who have extensive threads with pics on this install. I took my time and had the stock components off and the new on in less than three hours and I was very cautious (slow). Just be sure to have someone handy to help you lift the old one off and put the new one in place. They're kinda heavy.

Wow, great deal. Is that the supercharger only or the whole kit including the CAI?

Captain, that was for the supercharger only. It does have a pulley already installed, but it is the same size as stock. 3" I think. I didn't want the whole kit, since the KR already has the CAI. I'm gonna send this one out to get polished along with a polished L&M high flow elbow and polished TB. It should look sweet on my red car. :yahoo:

m-6066-sgt = complete kit with tuner and CAI (for 2007-2009)
m-6066-msvta = complete kit with tuner and air inlet resonator eliminator (for 2010 and newer)

not sure what m-6066-tva is.

tvs without tuner and CAI was also available under parts number m-6066-tvs (76mm pulley) or m-6066-msvtt72 (72mm pulley).

The sgt has the bigger pulley. I don't think that the change in pulley size would require changing the belt. On my '07 GT500, I had a 2.6' pulley and kept the same belt, with a idler pulley. A 72mm pulley is larger than 2.6' (roughly 2,83') so I don't think a idler would be needed.

I don't think belt slippage is an issue unless using a 2.65" or smaller, then I put a 90mm idler on it.

OK GUYS, GOT THE TVS. NOW MY QUANDRY IS: SHOULD I RUN IT WITH THE KR TUNE AND SAVE THE PROCAL VOUCHER FOR LATER IF I EVER DECIDE TO CHANGE TO A SMALLER PULLEY. OR SHOULD I GET A PROCAL TUNE BECAUSE THE CAR LIVES AT 4300 FEET. DOES IT MATTER TO THE KR TUNE? ANYONE HAVE AN OPINION?
