Save your money, for the price of unit and installation, rebuilding your engine every few thousand miles... go and buy yourself a faster car lol. You can buy a Skyline for £1500 these days with a 2.5 straight six turbo and 400bhp is not expensive to gain from 1 of them.

one problem with that is you then have a crap jap car! id do a reyland engine transplant instead, 300bhp cheaper than a supercharger and lighter and much more reliable

think i will ditch the idea then...it is a quick car any way so i will just spend money on a flywheel and some cams i reckon...maybe even treat myself to a itg induction kit as the existing induction kit is a bit cheap and not to great...

cheers guys .

ps my car is silver what colour wheels you reckon will look nice with the standard alloys?
