Here is the new ducting needed to re-route the air through the supercharger.
The main tube will carry the boosted air charge from the outlet of the supercharger to the throat of the throttle body.

The factory airbox was retained and hooked to the inlet of the supercharger. It was mounted to a set of provided brackets installed earlier in the process that will move the box over a few inches toward the passenger side.

An extension piece of tube must be installed in the factory intake track because of the relocation of the airbox. Powerdyne does this to keep the air entering the system cool by drawing it from the factory location.
