Yes, we all do. Please check out the Supercharger instructions on VQpower.com. It's all spelled out very clearly.

Is there any drain options with a S/C besides running a drain back plate ?

I got my kit used and the seller didnt include a drain back plate.

I'm considering SCing my 3.0, and my question is this, can I daily drive it (300mi per week(that's just to work and back and not including additional driving outside of work commute))? Is it reliable or would it I need to replace parts frequently due to the daily use? Reason I'm asking is because I figured it would be cheaper than slapping a turbo on and make less or around the same power...

Many people DD their supercharged and turboed maximas, you'll be fine. the only thing I would do is change my oil sooner.

I looked everywhere and the only place that sort of covers it is the install instructions on vqpower. com But I was wondering if anyone had a good write-up on the FMU install? The one I mentioned isnt very detailed, (for me anyway). Also, what size rubber hosing does the vortech fmu take?

You won't find one anywhere. All you can do is sit and wait for someone to sell random SC parts. Good luck.

Belt sizes listed for V2 are same for V1? I just want to be sure before I order a new belt.

EDIT: Through searching they are not the same. I was looking for the size needed for a V1 plate with 2.87" pulley. Was going to order a K060703 but found K060690 was the proper size Gates belt.
