Supercharging my '97 4.2

Hello. I am ready to start the process of collecting parts to supercharge my '97 4.2. I would like to use the Lightning blower, but what other parts do I need to do this? I need to know ALL of the parts that I need so I can start locating them.

I looked at the adapter manifold from Super Six Motorsports but it was 900 bucks. so I'm gonna fab up my own. Shouldn't be too hard to do if I take my time.

Thanks.
