Question Sc14 on stock 1.6L ford capri?

okay blokes , im thinking of sources or power for the capri, this is while i wait for the 351 of my dreams to magically appear in the capri :D, ive been thinking for a long time about going the forced induction route on the 1600, from the start ive always wanted a super charger and preferably a small one at around 6lb boost mainly because i believed them to be easier to fit than a turbo charger, plus im only 16, so i know ' bugger all' so i say .. so i was reading the other day about the sc12's and sc14 that are on the 1ggze and 4g*ze, and i was thinking, hell if they have them on 1.6's and 2l's i can put one on the capri.. so i was wondering what you all thought of the idea???
im also thinking of storing the 1600 in the shed and throwing a 2l out of an escort of cortina in it and doing the basic things like electric ignition efi, a nice lump stick and just match porting the lot :D so yeah, any feed back would be excellent, thanks alot, Nathan

It would be interesting, though it would take a lot of custom fabrication. There was a factory turbo option that might be easier to swap over.

Re: Sc14 on stock 1.6L ford capri?

a factory turbo option... im intrigued, we are both talking about the 1969 ford capri, not the mercury capri arnt we?
and yes i thought if i kept the supercharger on with the original 6lb boost pulley i would be able to use it without an inter cooler of sorts... much like the factory setup of the sc14, i also logged of thinking about the other modifications i had in mind, and now i remember them :p..
i was thinking re grinding a datsun 1600 steel crank shaft to fit the 1600kent, then mixing in a nice cam and roller rockers, and all the electrical stuff obvisouly... i have also been talking alot with some people who have the 1600's in track cars and they have let on that the stock pistons are capable of handling 250hp and 8000rev all day, so ill bugger off the idea of forged pistons right now, especially since they would be drastic overkill for the measly 250hp im expecting to get out of this 1600.. anyway i hope more people start posting so i can bounce some of my ideas off them

till next time, Nathan
