do some searchin, mounting points are way different, u'd prolly have better luck with a type-s supercharger! both would need quite abit of custom fabrication!

I type S Supercharger should work on a base. All you would need it a Type S throttle body and Kpro to disable the dual stage intake runners. If Comptech doesn't come out with it soon then I'm going to try the Type S one on my car. I'm sure I can make it work.

i think u need a type-s intake, not throttle body. isnt the s/c a TB of its own? but yah, there are some custom fabrications u gota do to make it fit right. i'm sitll not exactly sure what.

i'm going to go to StevenC's comptech s/c install meet so i can try to compare the bolt-on locations. will take lots of pics.

superchargers still use the stock TB
you can go to comptech's website and download a PDF of the install instructions to see what is necessary. I wish i could be there for steven's install :(

So you are saying the Civic K20A3 has way different mounting points than the RSX base K20A3? So therefore it's not possible to mount Civic K20A3 supercharger without a ton of modifications :confused: ?

It would be alot easier if someone would just ask me to tell them specific modifications that were done to the JRSC of the Type S to fit on the base. But if you guys want to do your own research and development then have fun lol

You need access to a machine shop though

okay, just out of curiousity (and assuming i have a machine shop in my backyard), what specific modifications were done to the JRSC of the type s to fit on the base? what management? (i assume k-pro but that might be way off for all i know)

bump for that question....i wonder how fast a supercharged base model can run at the quarter mile. im thinking anywhere from high 13s to low 14s.

Are you guys ready for some pictures? OK here we go.

A day at MD Automotive research and development shop of Jackson Racing.


This is Jackson Racing's very own Type S. The supercharger was tested on this car. Notice the engine bay with the K20A2, the red arrows are just two of the many places that had to be modified for the blower to fit on a K20A3.


Below is the blower on my K20A3. The whole piece of metal where the base throttle bolts on to the supercharger was replaced. Notice the custom welding job because the stock throttle body is now mounted with 180 degrees rotation from stock.


This piece of metal where the power steering is mounted had to be cut to make some clearance room


My throttle body is now mounted parallel with the engine like the Type S and not at an angle like the stock base position. Check the locations of where the sensors are on a stock base TB and compare it with mine, they are very different.


Look at these thin little spacers between the power steering and the mounting piece. Three of them were made for three different mounting bolts. I think they were 0.050" thick


Custom scissor plate brackets with aluminum idler pulleys different than the plastic idler pulleys of the Type S


Spacers to hold the alternator, different than Type S


Custom mounting bracket for power steering pump. Blower pulley has a different offset than the Type S. The difference is -0.050" maybe more


Dyno testing to check belt alignment
http://www.titanium-rsx.com/dyno.mpg

Hondata Tuned K-Pro
The two power curves are:
Before: CAI, JR Header (which added about 10HP from stock) and stock exhaust
After: Supercharger 4” pulley 440 injectors and tuning.


Now I'm running 3.7" pulley with AEM CAI, JR race header, Greddy SP2. The car feels night and day faster than before when the above dyno was done.

ok so now who wants to become rich and figure out what needs to be done for the s kit from comptech and just sell those parts so we can buy the s kit? hahah :)
