Usually some work needs to be done to the engine management software to add a supercharger. Do you have any sign of modified ECM? Why don't you go to Canepa for information?

I have reached out to CANEPA they are looking for the papers on it. I have a controller by the motor that says fuel and timing. And also have extra lines and fuel injector taped up to the side.

Nobody removes a well performing part from a car, that's my experience at least.
There was a reason someone removed it.
I know this doesn't really help with your question, but I think you're opening yourself up to some serious pain by trying to fit the supercharger.
Good luck if you decide to go ahead.

Wonder what mods were done to the heads fitting a roots type blower usually involes lowering the CR by fitting plates or low compression pistons or she'll go BANG maybe taken off as couldnt get it sorted like needing extra fuel via extra port injectors . Can the engine take the extra power interested to see if it works

I have no idea about the heads but it does have a fuel management box with an extra injector to spray to add more fuel in wide open throttle. I will get a picture later.

If you're fitting that to a stock 4litre then it won't last long ---- you need to lower the compression ratio either pistons or head gasket work Also if engine was set up for supercharger it would run crap without it ? due to low compression ---- not to mention possible different cam as some engines that are supercharged have different cam durations

So I have a fuel controller 1 wire is hooked up which powers everything and connects to 9th injector but there is a vacuum line. Do you know where it needs to go? Any help would be helpful.

I'd agree. Presumably it looks at the manifold vacuum or pressure and alters the fuel flow depending on how much boost there is.

It's for a MAP-sensor (manifold absolute pressure) and should be connected after the supercharger. Preferably in the common part before the intake runners.
