    Hi I have a supercharged VT Calais and a vu Ute, I want to put the supercharger on the Ute, do I need to change the computer or anything else for the supercharger to run on the Ute, no motor change just charger change.

    Is there any reason you only want to do a top swap instead of just using the whole supercharged engine?

    I got a standard vy v6 ute gets good fuel economy averages 11l 100km i got a 400 buck fine clocked at 130 in a 110 zone slowing down from 180 ..i realy dont understand why you would want to chuck on a supercharger increase your fuel consumption for something thats already capable of getting you into debt with the law
