If you want a vortech go to capas website it lists prices.

You can supercharge a standard motor and it would be fine on 10psi depending on the condition of your motor.

cool well my engine should be A1 mechanical as i had all the seals and gaskets and main bearings replaced and had everythin tidied up and fixed what nedeed fixing and its only done 125 000ks anyway so it should be good 4 it :dance:

I'm not planning on breaking any speed records with it i just want a mild streeter that is fun to jump in and play around with :thumbsup: i was thinking of getting a cam and heads shaved and maybe a different manifold setup?... i would be happy with around 200 rwkw's. but think by spending the same sort of money to do cams and head work i could buy a charger get that little more power and would have the option of sellin the charger seperate if i eva decide to sell the car and maybe get sum money back..... but i will sus out how much these kits r first as i was thinking a 5g budget would be the max i would spend on this car engine wise.........

might need to stretch that budget a bit for a decent charger setup.

as said your motor will be fine with the blower and 10psi if its in good condition, the 5 speed will be fine, the clutch mighten last that long but it will do for a while

As lachie said, your gonna need to increase your budget. Even for a 2nd hand kit.

The kit i'm looking at is an Eaton, from MWS in WA. It really depends what your after, top mounts are more expensive, but i hate the look of a side mount, and its way too obvious to the cops.

I actually got let off by a cop last night. He picked up too loud, blower, nos, wheels, he knew the motor wasn't standard also. I was able to kind of weazel out of it and left with him saying to get it sorted out and engineered.

I was so lucky

Back when I had a V2 blower and just a 5L with a cam and YT roller rockers the best I got on 10psi was 270rwkw
