The side pieces are made of aluminum (they looked like plastic in the pictures) and they are removable. They just snap in like the original covers. When they are removed there are a couple of tabs that are visible. I will take a couple pictures tonight with them off and PM them to you.

That's probably my favorite blower right now just from the basics that I've read. I really like that they offer a "competition kit" for considerably less that strips it of items many of us change any way such as the injectors, pulley's, Predator and others.
Sounds good...Looking fwd to some vids.
I do like it with the side pieces on though.
During the install there was a bolt missing from the kit. I finally called Edelbrock for the missing bolt that was needed and was a little surprised at the poor customer service. I was able to find a reasonable replacement at the hardware store but felt it would still be better to get the proper bolt from the manufacturer. Also, this kit did cost $7000.00, so having it be complete is probably not too much to ask. I was actually surprised at how hard it was to get someone to help and the fact that they really were not over anxious to send the missing piece. In my opinion, they need to work on their customer service at Edelbrock. This missing bolt could have ruined my whole weekend! It definitely cost me a few dollar for the temporary replacement, fuel to get to the store and all the time and phone calls. I finally had to call the dealer I purchased the kit from (which is not supposed to be necessary) and they were very helpful and they made arrangements for me to get the bolt. Four phone calls, an email and a few days later, the $.15 bolt arrived. Absolutely ridiculous!
Yeah, I've been hearing similar stories from a couple of other Edelbrock owners. One is actually having his removed and going with a stroker instead.

Here are some videos of the car running, accelerating, and cruising. Everyone that has heard the car is amazed at how much louder it is but cannot hear the supercharger. I can hear the exhaust is louder from inside the vehicle too. It still has the stock track pack exhaust system. I put the videos on my file share, hope providing a link to it is okay. The password is "lxforums" to download them. It is not me driving in most of the videos, it is a friend. For some reason, I found it hard to take video and drive the supercharged 6spd at the same time. https://www.onlinefilefolder.com/3st4o12EowfI9w
Living in the north country has its ups and downs! I had to postpone the dyno on Friday due to a snow storm. I will try another appointment sometime this week. However, it was a beautiful and cold day today so I used this opportunity to hit the track. This was my first day at the track with the supercharger and the best run was 12.2 @ 118 mph. I will scan and post the slips sometime this week. I am extremely happy with the results so far!
