Turbo Info

I was reading Performance Ford Mag today and saw a small piece about Gas Research Performance Centre,apparently producing a bolt on turbo kit for the AU falcon.For around 5k which includes fitting and tuning.
Does anybody have any further info regarding turbo setups for the 6cylinder,or even blowers.

Centrifugal Air Pumps Australasia (CAPA) have complete bolt on kits for Falcons. They have a website. As for reliability, don't know, but your factory warranty certainly would be void. All info is on the site - search on either full name or CAPA

Thanks i have seen the CAPA website before.I also realise the warranty would be void and i would have to wait for that to end before i considered going ahead with the turbo/supercharger ideas.

Sorry Will i cant help you,i dont know where this place "Gas REsearch Performance Centre" is??? My info in the first post was all that was in the mag on pg9 top right corner under the "Goss" section.
Either the turbo or supercharger will be in my plans for the future,but looking at results from Horsepower Heroes from Summernats(not that im trying to make that level) the turbos seem to be winning hands down.Would be great to find a place that fit and tune a tidy setup.
Keep me filled in if you find out any info please.

i've looked into the supercharger vs. turbo thing and the turbo beats superchargers hands down for power, but superchargers are a lot easier to install. i spoke to a bloke who owned a supercharged 6 and he said that if was doing the same thing now, he'd go for a turbo. he wanted more power soon after the blower went in. that was enough to win me over...

my turbo setup will be done by croydon motorsports and they have quoted a figure in the vicinity of $7000 for the lot.

so far, i haven't heard of any kits.

I haven't got any specs as yet because it's probably not happening before the year's end.

Turbos usually require lower compression, either through different pistons (usually forged) or decompression plate between head and block.
