Re: what should I do..

I'd make sure that I got the loan first before considering anything.

Then supercharge (I don't think turbos have a place in E Series Falcons) that sumbitch.

Re: what should I do..

if you're gonna finance anything to do with doing up a car, use your own money.

getting a loan to do up a car is just wrong...

Re: what should I do..

Hi Rob,

Sorry to be so negative but have to agree with blackout.

If your relying on hand-me-down parts to get it through rego I don't think you should be borrowing money to do it up! Not unless your financial circumstances have changed.

Just my 2c from plenty of years of experience.

Re: what should I do..

atleast $8k for a decent boost application.

Capa Kit $5995 for a 9psi Powerdyne kit (approx. 240fwkw),
plus $1000 for a unichip and dyno tuning
plus new fuel pump $200, injectors $150 each ($900), and fuel system management ($???) to confidently deliever fuel at all boost levels.

Main advantage with superchargers is the fact that you can utilise some of your go fast stuff already, such as extractors and exhaust.

Turbo has a lot of hidden chargers, plus you need to basically design a whole new exhaust system. As well as the added fact that CAPA kits come with an engineers certificate, while a DIY turbo kit will need a certificate to be roadworthy.
