Will this be available for public sale, and what HP gains can one expect for it?

Last time I saw some brave soul fit this to a Lexus $30 engine, they said this kit added about 55 bhp at the wheels for $12,000 dollars running correctly, and people were afraid the engine and gearbox wouldn't be able for the extra horses. I would love to see one done and running for a year or so.

Good luck with the build.

Cost?!? Are they pre-fab kits or custom?

The Greddy supercharger was produced a few years back and from what I found out, seems like there are 4 kits ever existed, and this kit I have is the most complete with all the brackets and parts. Similar to the TOM'S supercharger in design, which MSRP for about $10,000, it makes about 60 hp at the wheel.

Thanks! I would like to strengthen the transmission, but the only thing holding me back is that the shifts won't be as smooth as before. As the SC430 is not designed to be a race or sports car (unless dropping tons of money to make it like Daigo Saito's) but as a luxury cruiser, I would like to keep the ride smooth and comfortable and have a higher output luxury cruiser. I won't race it, so I think it'll be running fine until it reach like 300k miles.

I bought this kit from a fellow clublexus member and this kit came off from a 3Gen GS430. And of course I won't pay $12,000 for ~60 hp I got the kit for $4k that also comes with the e-manage ultimate as well.

And here's an updated photo for today

I wouldn't say unsafe but it will not last to long with the stock 4.3 unbuilt with a supercharger. would not run that engine over 6 psi. can't wait to see how it run. great job looks great.
