Supercharged Xf - Help please

Hey guys im wanting to supercharge my xf ute what would be the minimum cost to do this - can you actually do. It my ute runs on both petrol and gas (how hard is it to get it running on straight gas and how much $$$ would you need to spend) As of now my ute is just a V6 so yeah how much would it cost and what would be the best brand or whatnot to get

Any help would be appreciated
Cheers
Tim

P.S i dont know lots about cars lol so no abuse please

Re: Supercharged Xf - Help please

There arent any kits to fit a supercharger to an XF 6 cylinder so you will need to make all your own brackets and stuff like that.
You can get a good gas system for a forced induction application from gas research for about a grand.
You will need to buy a supercharger from somewhere, it might cost you around $1500 for a second hand one then you have to make your own brackets to put it on and do the plumbing.
If you can do the brackets yourself it shouldnt cost much more than $3000.

Re: Supercharged Xf - Help please

Saw a kit on sale on ebay a while ago, the guy wanted $330 for the kit. Wasnt top of the range or anything but nevertheless it was a kit.
If you're patient and keep your eyes peeled there are some bargains to be had.

Re: Supercharged Xf - Help please

Are you after a performance car, or you want a supercharger for towing?

I'll be supercharging my XF Ghia within the next few months. For towing purposes, so Im going to be using a small Toyota unit. You can pick them up for $300-$500 for the Toyota supercharger. Then you're looking at about $1500 or there abouts for brackets and fitting. I'm hopping for good torque figures down low for towing.
The supercharger optoin is not cheap for the XF as there aren't really any kits available. You're more likely to find a turbo kit to suit an XF.

Re: Supercharged Xf - Help please

Those Toyota s/c are too small...The s/c off the Supra s/c 2 ltr six is "just" big enough..Check the U.S importers they often have s/c from the Ford 3.8 V6 etc...Better option.....

Re: Supercharged Xf - Help please

I'm doing it as an experimental thing too. I reckon the small unit should be enough for what I want. I'm not looking for a full out blown car.

The Fairlane fills that category

Re: Supercharged Xf - Help please

I was at the local speed shop last week...
A Commodore had the 4AGZE s/c fitted and it hardly made boost..Infact on dyno it lost power.The effert to drive it wasn't compensated by the extra airflow...Two of them would work though....

Re: Supercharged Xf - Help please

The toyota s/c will make your car suffer at mid-high rpm. you will loose all top end power as the little charger will not be able to spin quick enough to even keep up with how much air the engine will need at mid rpm. if you change the pulley so it spins quicker you will burn it out in 6 months (the guys from calaisturbo.com should be able to verify this and they have only got 3l engines). The best thing you could do if you want to use them is get two an try to mount them up.
