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..

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

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!

Well done SA pollies (for once). Hoon laws are long overdue to protect car enthusiasts against idiot drivers.

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?
