Question Supercharging a falcon with a blower from a 1GGZE

Hey guys,

Some of you may remember back in zoom issue 30 (the one with 300zx on the front) they did a blower conversion on to a v6 commie from a 1GGZE for under $2000.
Now i guess this could be done on a falcon to..right?

Question is, (this wont happen for a while cos funds are not existant atm) can anyone tell me what i would need to make this conversion work? is it possible to do it under 2k?

would the 1ggze blower be the best choice? As much as i would love a capa/sta kit, it aint gonna happen, so i may try this instead if it aint too much work!

thanks

my only concern is that its quite a small blower..is it worth the insurance hassles etc for what wont be a masive increase in power. For a 4l motor one of those blowers will be at capacity

Check out this months ZOOM magazine (has a white EVO 5 lancer on the cover) there is a bloke with an ED XR6 with a Vortech V1 on it, STOCK BOTTOM END, EMS computer, intercooler, 2 speed Powergilde trannie (ohhhh the fuel bills!) who is cranking 221kw.........AT THE BLOODY WHEELS.

Anyway, back to the REAL world, there was a bloke called Sven (seriously....forgot his last name) who built a blue XF ute with 351 and twin Toyota blowers (i think they are the same as the ones ur looking at). It made a shit load of power. He also makes those twinlight conversion things for falcons. I think he has a bit of info on the ute at his web site

www.twinlight.com.au

check it out!

Castlemaine Rod Shop do bolt on kits for V6 Commodores and I think they have in development kits for 4.0lt Fords.

Here is power at will, a clutch operated supercharger and fitting kit. The blower is clutch driven and engaged with a simple switch the same as air conditioners. Three and a half pounds of boost straight into the manifold. A 30% power increase is there when you want it, then just turn it off.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

i dont wanna sound stupid or anything, but how can the supercharger be switched on and off? do they mean the clutch is the switch kind of? i thought that the supercharger would have to be turning all the time to get air thru the turbines (?) inside to the manifold, or does this setup take air in, compress it in the supercharger and then mix it with fuel?

isnt it more efficient to compress the fuel and air together?

i dont really know much about supercharging tho, so im not expecting to be right or anything here :D
