MY buddy has a 01 2 dr lx non-vtec. My question is will the Jackson Racing supercharger fit from a 99-00 Civic and how hard would the install be? Should it just plug n play for the most part or will it need a decent amount of fabrication? Thanks.

They don't have it on jackson's site but has anybody seen or done a sc d17? That would be a first and something pretty cool to do. Maybe somebody here may know of a place.

No one makes an S/C for the D17 that replaces the Intake mani. like the JRSC. Only thing you would be able to do is buy a vortech type and make custom brakets to hold it on, but in the end it would cost so damn much you might as well do a Turbo buildup.

if your talkin about the guy from 7thgen, i think he ended up selling it too in the end if i'm not mistaken. yeah and as for JRSC don't count on it and don't believe the rumors that they are making one cause that is also false. boost is the only way to go.

im sure you could do it , it probably will take a little bit of fabrication to get it to work

From what I understand about the Y8 Manifold, two of the bolt holes had to be enlarged, and some wiring had to be done for the injectors, tps and iac sensors as well as a different throttle body. Other than that your other concern might be the fan belt and whether or not it will line up with some of the other accessories.

well what about the idle/air valve on the back of the Y8 intake, and on the throttle body on the A2? Or is it even worth it if i plan to run boost?

my buddy on 7th gen has a civic and we both are wondering why they haven't come up with a s/c yet. Turbo kits are hard to come by too. I didn't think they were high compression motors. Is there a lack on space in the engine bay. I think I need to do my research.

Simple really, they're bubble cars and were poorly made after 2000. :( The demand simply isn't there to make a SC or TC for a d17, because the cars they came with weren't hits in the import community.

thats why they are hopefully going to get the cars back on the streets with the new ones. The si will since its a similar k20 and the kit should be damn near close to bolt up. But i'm not 100% sure. anything is possible.
