3rd Gen Acura TL Comptech Supercharger fitment questions on 2nd Gen......

Does anyone know what modifications right off the bat will be needed to mount a 3rd Gen Comptech Supercharger onto a 2nd Gen? I believe the charger should bolt up if I'm not mistaken. Thanks in advance

im not sure if you can do that, you're taking a Supercharger meant for another engine and chassis. you're going to have to custom fit it and tune it well because you might blow the engine. anyways where did you find the SC? did they have a 2gen one?

If Im not mistaken the mounting points should mount up but thats what I need to verify the rest isn't a problem. This is a Comptech kit so they are hard to come by and is why I want to know. Been something Ive been wanting to do on this daily for some time. As long I can confirm the mounting points and pulleys line up the rest I can modify and fit. Tune will be minor as its such a low boosting kit. But yea to answer your question this is all I was able to find was for the 04 and up.

Anyone have access to the installation manuals for both cars?

The OP, ziggyh22, on the thread below did the opposite of what you have in mind.
The approach he used involved 'modification' as you will see.
Read his thread below, it should help your understanding of the job at hand:

Good Luck!

Yea, but I'd only be willing to provide the brackets as a donor for a machine shop to make copies. There's a lot of people who need them.

Do you happen to know if the brackets are different on the 2nd and 3rd gen and which ones? I think the alternator bracket is different but uncertain. I can get them copied but there will be a cost for it if anyone is willing to cover it. Do you happen to have ECM laying around you may want to part with?
