Supercharging the Element with a Merc Racing kit WILL work, and I will be the first to prove it. Initially, I felt pretty alone in my efforts and even a little crazy at times. Nevertheless, I appreciate the support of this community. This is my first build so I have been learning a lot. I did as much 'research' as possible even going back to a 2008 thread where someone supercharged their Element with a CTE kit for reference. However, the CTE kit is different and (as is life) often you don't really know what you are getting into... until you are in it. For my build, relocating the power steering has been our biggest challenge. My team is almost done with creating a custom power steering relocation bracket. Just talked with my tuner today... hopefully we will be on the dyno by next week.That is what Jose calls it. I think he just means they Hondata or Ktuner interface and software to program the ECU- That’s what I mean by tuning kit, which is a term that Jose used.
Gio has been very helpful with some advice and turned me on to the boosted elements Facebook group where there is also a pretty good amount of information. Jose and his son have a greed to take on the project, which is exciting. Now that we have done a little bit of research, the ECU for my model and transmission are going to be the biggest hurdle to making it work. I don’t think anyone is completely certain that it will work. It’s always good to try
