Also if a blower is fitted to a 5.0litre what are the fuel increases like just weekly driving around in traffic??? Is this affected by adding a blower??? I thought a supercharger gave you better economy???

It depends on the right foot. But floor it and it'll use it !!!
Pd are o/k on lower boost levels, which is exactly what you'd use for street on std mill...The internal belt often wears out, no big deal...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Nah it must be his mate - I'm sure Steve's AU is a six.

But I have a mate asking the same sort of questions! lol.

Yes, I suppose it could be a diversion. And it worked, he diverted me.

Now, if this mate of mine actually got one, he would love to run against your (future) turbo'd six!

Sad to hear about your mate - is it a possibility as he gets older?
