I've worked exclusively with Nate Haines of CT-Engineering in the development and (mostly) testing for the 2012+ CT-e Supercharger kit. It was an amazing experience working and collaborating with CT-Engineering, Hondata and Vitaliy Mikitchenko (aka VitViper) on this kit. It's been a great success and proving to be a very popular forced induction option for 9th Generation SI's, many of the owners being active members on this forum.
This thread was created with the intention of providing user feedback to potential buyers and existing owners in answering any questions they may have about this kit.
08nhpbfa5 and I both have installed these kits (and then some) to our vehicles personally and feel that we would be confident in answering questions based on our experience first hand.
A couple of highlights about this kit:
-3.8" 3.6" and 3.15" pulleys are available when you purchase the kit. 3.6" and 3.15" being the most popular option providing 7PSI and 10PSI respectively.
-3.8" and 3.6" pulleys will operate with your OEM factory serpentine belt.
-3.15" pulley will require a 1640mm (65.56 inch) to a 1658mm (65.3 inch) serpentine belt.
-You will need a 7-ribbed/micro grooved belt.
-Popular available belts include Gates and Goodyear.
-Both IMT and MercRacing have an aftercooler solution for this kit, although some modification may be required as they may or may not have a positive mounting solution for the 9th generation civic.
-3.15" pulley is capable of generating power in 300WHP+ range.
-The kit requires no modification to your fuel pump or regulator.
-I've had 5,000 trouble-free miles on this kit thus far on the stock OEM clutch.
-With additional upgrades to the popular M62 blower such as an even smaller pulley (2.95"), porting and snout cooling we suspect this kit may break the 400WHP mark.
Please feel free to ask any questions you have.
