About as bolt on as a super charger could get
Once you’ve had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
There has been ups and downs. The install went smoothly but had some belt issues early on. A note on this is to make sure you have a serpentine belt laser alignment tool. Do everything you can to ensure all your pulleys are as spot on as possible. The belt is super finicky. Also upgrade your tensioner and upgrade your harmonic balancer if it makes sense. With belt issues sorted... the thing eats, sounds amazing, and is great!
Any additional comments?
Buy an upgraded belt tensioner and use the opportunity to upgrade/swap your harmonic balancer. The belt tolerances, at least in my case, don't leave much room for any error.
