XR6 blowers

Rob,
Do you do blower installs on XR6's? I am still fighting the urge but my want (need?) for forced induction is getting the better of me and I might have to do it.
All I'm looking for as a basic, low blow style system that bolts on to the existing engine without any major internal modifications.

Any suggestions or info would be great.

CAPA do a good supercharger kit for the XR6....check out their website.

Re: XR6 blowers

Capa are grossly overpriced!

EDIT: For what I can afford (and justify). They are good quality stuff, just out of my price range.

Re: XR6 blowers

Whoa, CAPA and Rob have worked together on a number of blower projects, most recently the Black 400kw BA XR8. A couple of phonecalls to both will probably help.

Mess with the bull, get the horns!

Re: XR6 blowers

Not sure how much Herrods is. From someone who knows they have done a setup on an XR8 for considerably less than what capa charge.

Re: XR6 blowers

Dont get me wrong guys, Capa are a quality outfit, it's just that to buy and fit one wouldnt leave much change from $7000, if any.

240 ex kw
$ 6,319.00 (unfitted)

Now Rob Herrod is a Ford guru, I doubt anyone would question his skill and quality. If he can do something similar for less cost than I'd be mad to not consider it. All I'm doing is looking for options that would allow me to get a quality system fitted in a price range that is realistic to me.

Cool?

yeah yeah, It's a feeble attempt at me trying to fool myself so I stop spending money I dont have. What the hell, I only live once and its harder for creditors to catch me if I'm supercharged!
