unfortunately i can't tell yet. the main reason it took so long to do the s/c fittup is that it is the first au2 that has had a capa kit fitted as far as i know, and ford just happened to change a few little bits from au1 to au2.

at the moment it is quite driveable but the ecm shuts down the engine as soon as the map sensor reads more than about 2 psi. i can feel the boost start to come on at about 2800 to 3000rpm on wot, but it cuts out at about 3300rpm. if i drive it at about 3/4 throttle it will rev all the way, and is a fair bit quicker than before at that throttle.

capa and the guys that fitted the kit are trying to find a work around. fingers crossed it will get done next weekend while i'm at f1 (woohoo).

Dude,
Car looks great, I'm a bit concerned about the seal on the end of the intake tube to the throttle body, the "garter" spring on there is fairly light weight and not designed for a pressured tube system, and will cause blow off.
You'd be better of fitting the intake tube off an EL , or an AU LPG intake tube which ar eboth design for hose clamp fittings on the ends.

Hey,

Sweet car I gotta ute - espeically with that little turbine-y thing youve got hidden under the bonnet.

But the $64 milllion dollar question remains - Given that insurance is "interesting" for a standard V8 - whats it like when the supercharger goes on? How much upgrading to brakes and sus to they expect you to do?

L8a,
Prud
