My first post! Alright so I have been doing a lot of reading on the superchargers and it's very difficult to find any for the K24Z3.

From what I understand the 2012 to 2015 civic si has a k24z7. The engines are the same except the bottom block has a different oil pan for clearance on the civic chassi. The inturals appear to be the same and also the same top end.

Would a kit make for the z7 fit without modification on a z3?

Havent seen anyone ask about this or anything like it.

I am R2dTurd btw saying hello from Idaho.

Well if it counts. I am very certain it will fit. Both the ct and the Kraftwerks

OK, so a 9th gen Civic Si supercharger kit from CT-E will fit, with the exception of the tensioner. Said tensioner is the main difference between the 9th gen Si and CU2 supercharger kits. Kraftwerks 9th gen Si kit does not even begin to fit the CU2.

You could make either 9th gen kit work on a CU2 by swapping the water pump housing, alternator, tensioner, and other parts along the way. With the KW kit, you will also need to fabricate intercooler piping and mounts. Too much work IMO.

Then, there is the MercRacing supercharger kit. This kit in universal to the K-Series. To make it fit the CU2, you will need to do a fair bit of custom work.

So, long story short, if you want direct bolt-on, there is one option, and that is to find a used CT-E kit. I happen to know of one that is collecting dust somewhere in Ohio.

Sorry for taking so long to get back. Work has been... stressful.

@antisocial thanks for that information. I am planning on getting a used engine from the scrap yard to rebuild. Do you know if the water pumps are a direct swap? I have to break the whole engine down fo change out piston rings and wouldn't be to hard to swap out the water pump.

I did look up the differences of the tensioner and the spacing is a little different for mounting. I have access to CNC plasma cuter at work. The bracket seems simple enough. Tricky part would be spacing and bending of it to be in the same place.

@antisocial know how much the ct supercharger is going for?
