xr8 300kw

Well To anyone doubting the quoted power output of the c.a.p.a super charger kits for the ba xr8's, i can honestly say they arent fibbing :).

i bought and fitted the kit two weeks ago and had it dynoed last week,
308kw at the treads!!! :)
very happy and i am very surprised at how much traction the ute !
i have done 1500klms in it with out any drama's and fuel ratio is very safe.

what a rush, the fastest car i have owned!!!
couldn't be happier.
