I think you will find the turbo option a better choice. There are quite a few being done with impresive results.

It seems that superchargers dont run the same boost as the turbos out and about .. I don't know if this is a choice or a mechanical limitation though.

Talk to a Jap importer, they have heaps of second hand turbo's for around $350- $500 with bearing turbo,water cooled bearings and wastgate included..With out efi you can't run an intercooler so low-ish boost under 7 Lp with S.U or Stromburg as carby...

Could use blower off V6 Commodore or imported one off V6 U.S Ford,I have seen in Parts peddler..

okay so it's around $400 for a 2nd hand turbo, fair enough... but can someone give me a rough estimate on how much it's going to cost for the exhaust manifold to suit and for the piping? Thanks guys!

Man that turbo XE sure is something hey!
I never get sick of watching the video of it.

And XF ute EFI 2B, whats made you stop wanting to convert your car to EFI?
I want to do this exact thing as soon as I find a donor EFI car nice and cheap. I didnt think it would be too hard.. just a matter of swapping the computer and all the EFI stuff, and changing the fuel pump.
Am I totally neglecting something here, or is it as simple as this?
