    For most of the daily visitor you probably know what this thread is going to be about. For anyone one that does not this is mainly going to be about the cloning of a super charger set up that one of our other members has done. Most of the built will be like his as it comes to the super charger part. As for the rest of the truck i will be stealing a few ideals of his and others from here. I also will try to give everyone the credit for either there ideals and or their help with my build as correctly as i can.

    This thread is not going to be only about the super charger addition to Mazie but Im going to back track and post some of the earlier mods i have done to her up to this time. feel free to ask any questions about what i have done and going to be doing. I know of at least two other members that will be checking in from time to time to bail me out and give there insight. If they cant answer Im sure they know who on here can. Also if you have any other ideals that might be a needed addition feel free to inform me. During the winter my job slows way down and any thing to think about during the long hours of nothingness at work will be greatly appreciated. Here is some popcorn for the long read. :pop: Thanks for you time and input everyone. time for the list of finished mods and pictures to go with them.

    First of all the truck on the first week.

    Was a nice mostly clean truck one dent in the tail gate and two in the front more than likely from shipment over seas not biggie.

    next up was a tach. I hate manuals with no tach. idk why but i cant stand not being able to look and see what rpms Im running basic most people use this one easy to look up on here.

    then came some speakers for a radio same radio you can find by searching the forum. I made a wooden box for mine till i get the time to put them in the doors.

    My next issue was the front springs where way to weak for what i would need. #250 springs each side.

    New rims and tires. way better than the pizza cutters then truck had at first.

    The last of the currently completed mods fender flares. too many close calls with rocks and my nice mirrors ended up with some flexy flares.

    Time for the mod that is the whole reason for my thread and some others that are to come soon. The beloved super charger. I will be making a clone of what another member did on here before I even had a clue what I was doing with Mazie. Thanks goes out to spaner. For his great addition to the power of minis to come. If i can follow what he did than hopefully someone else will also see that it can be done. A link to his build thread.

    Now for the few pictures of the super charger i will be using a amr500.

    Have a nice day.

    Oh yea lots of fun and games to come and a few sleepless nights wonder what did i get into and how to get out of it Im sure are coming very soon.
    But from those sleepless nights will come the glory of being able to look back and go look what i was able to do.

    Hey all I have been looking at some k&n filters. thinking once the s/c is in there will prolly be no room for the stock air box no big deal right. I think i found something that would work perfectly once hocked up right. please tell me what you think http://www.knfilters.com/universal/apollo.htm It is a closed air filter so should be waterproof to a point. I think that could get me past the not more air box and still get to keep the snorkel take some work to make it work and its a like pricey but what about a s/c add on is not gonna be pricey so what the heck go big or go home.

    Ok so today while at work sitting in the office while it rained :(. I was thinking how nice it would be to have a mph speedometer and found one that runs on gps no cables or wires or sensors to hook up other than power ground light for night driving and a small antenna to poke out the dash thats it. Yes its a little work but i like know what speed Im running and when i go from the stock to the offroad or the newer 13 inch rims the stock speedo will be off. Here is the link http://www.speedhut.com/custom_gauge_description-gauge_type-Speedometer_GPS-auto_number-913.htm Thanks every

    Ok so small update on the Mad Mazie build. Im going junk yardin Friday in search of a ac compressor and clutch if I dont have any luck I have found many on ebay that have been rebuilt on the north end of 80 bucks. Almost double a junk yard price but its been redone and thats if I cant find one this Friday. Next purchase is not need but WANTED big time the gps gauge I link a few post back its going in the cart this weekend. That way all the parts should come in mid to late next week just in time for the weekend work time. :) In the mean time Im going to jack up the front end this weekend and see where all the noise is coming from when I hit a bump on the drivers side Im guessing something to do with the strut :(. Those may be next on the order list followed by the shaft coupler and mount plate for the front of the s/c to get the clutch mounted and out of the way. If I have time left over the center plastic is coming out to see about mounting the front traction control :D. Well thats all for now.




    Update: Ok so i got really bored at work tonight and ordered the gps gauge oops. :pop: I even added a little custom text to the middle of it but you will have to wait and see what it says once its installed.

    It would be cool if Socal Sonny
    decided to do the Hijet at the same time

    Then we'd have three...a zuk, a mazie, and a hijet...
