    So exactly what does 5 years have to do with anything? That just says you should know that there are threads that memebers have spent some quality time writing and posting. Dont waste the effort that they have put out by reasking the same shit over again.

    No special tools at all to change the SC wheel. I just followed these instructions: http://www.rivaracing.com/instructions/ry17040_sci.pdf

    Here are riva's install instructions. Very detailed with all bolt torque settings. http://www.rivaracing.com/instructions/ry17040_sci.pdf . I've changed 3 wheels now and still use a printed copy of the instructions to keep me on track.

    The only tool required i would consider SPECIAL, is an inch pound torque wrench. With the stock shaft, the torque setting when tightening the shaft nut is 70 in Lb and they're not kidding. Quite a few people have snapped the shaft at the threads.

    So are the Supercharger bracket tools and the supercharger shaft/gear holding tools that R&D sells just to make the install easier?

    They are, but not required. I just lay the charger on a towel on work bench. The rear of the SC shaft has a 17mm nut. You can use the nut to hold the shaft just as easy as the gear holder tool that R&D sells. Just follow the riva instructions and in 45 min you'll be like damn that was simple.
