    Hi all

    jus wondering what every1 thinks of these kits that Castlemaine hav i am able to pick 1 up off a mate that has had near no use for only $1000 for the full kit,

    what i was wondering is how reliable these are??
    and if you can get high PSI pulley kits for these superchagers??

    Cheers

    They are worth $2k plus postage so $1k in good nick is a good price. You can get a 6psi pulley (std is 3psi) search this section of the forum a few people have them. CRS kits are cleaned up toyota superchargers designed for 2L cars so they are limited. So long as your engine is healthy you will be able to bolt it on and run with it. BTW only one question mark is necessary to get attention :)

    I came into this thread about to tell you to buy the stuff yourself and do it that way, at 1800 its a deadset ripoff, but for 1000 off a mate, thats worthy.

    Go hard.

    Just a note remember to advise your insurance company your premium will go up but you will then be covered in the event of crash. Also you may need to have it certified by an engineer depending on your state
