Default Roush TVS 2300 Installed/first impressions

After running into a couple of small problems following my installation, I think I have the car running at 100%. Since my other thread turned into a "please help me" thread, I wanted to start from scratch. So some thoughts:

1. The installation was pretty easy. Instructions very straightforward. I would say the actual labor took me about 11-12 hours, mostly alone, but with some help for maybe three hours.
No special tools required really, just basic hand tools. A good working knowledge of Ford's wiring connections would be a definite plus, but you figure them out eventually.
I would say if 1 is an oil change and 10 is a long block install, the Supercharger is around a 6.

2. The car sounds awesome after the install. And the Roush kit is pretty aesthetically pleasing. The only two areas that could be improved are the PCV live that runs right over the top of the SC, and the air intake elbow (black plastic).

3. Performance is INCREDIBLE! I went from having a fast car to having something like they drive in the movies. Tire smoking, tail wagging power. I'll post a link to the first real pull video I did. Be kind, I was by myself driving and running the phone. This car has 4.10 gears and will do over 150 mph. It pulls hard all the way to the top too.

I know there are a lot of kits out there. I can't say that one is better than another, but I'm very happy with the Roush TVS setup. Hopefully I can get some dyno numbers someday, or better yet, get the car to the track.

For now, it's just a whole lotta fun to drive!

Here's the video, sorry it's a link, I'm not sure how to make it come up on its own.

Yeah man, if the car ever goes away, I'm keeping that blower and bolting it to my coffee table.

Blower looks good on there. I'm sure it's fun to drive. Those TVS2300s make gobs of torque!

I can certainly help you out with that. Our 3V TVS car pulls huge wheelies on UPR's street suspension and drag radials.

I will definitely keep that in mind. The budget is blown for now though.
