New Supercharger Question

So it looks like I am going to need a new supercharger. When I put a new supercharger on will the car's ecu need a re-flash to match the "new-used" SC?

Where did you read that you needed to reflash? I only ask out of curiosity.

Nope...NO wires hanging out of the blower, anywhere..!
One of the few things on the car that is not directly controlled by the cars electrical system, purely mechanical. Not counting the pop-off valve.

No pop-off valve on S/C cars...just a mechanical by-pass valve

Don't need to do anything, just install it and go.
We have a few brand new ones left in stock

I would also do the water pump and gaskets while doing it
