    Not quite the professional shots I was hoping for, but this gives you an idea of where the supercharger fits in the SV6 engine. There are probably a few cosmetic things I can do to the engine to really show it all off...but I'm caught up in the VY resurrection at the moment.

    Yeah, although it does go down a bit into they engine ( that squeaky pulley was under there, hard to get too)

    LOL ..... so you're saying this is only $1000? .... for just in case she read this :))


    hell, they're not answering my emails @Capa :(

    (oh ... plz no one tell me V8 .... VE's aren't sold by dealer here, dealer offers only the clubsport R8 and thats a $100k. I bought mine from a guy who drove this to Jordan)

    I'm seriously considering this when my warranty ends but not sure on a couple of things so thought I'd ask here. Was thinking I'd go the stage 1 unit without the piggy back or fuel pump for 5k (I've a very capable fitter mate who said he's be happy to have a go at it). Then get it tuned through MACE remotely for $550. Thought I'd do it the cheapest way possible to start off with just to make sure it all works OK. The questions I have though are:

    Would it be better to spend the money on the intercooler in the 1st place or can it be retrofitted easily later along with the fuel pump?
    What on a supercharger sets the PSI and is it easily adjustable?
    What will the 6l50 gearbox cope with?
    Will it make it difficult for my wife drive ie is it likely to be to toey in carparks or in traffic or is this something that can be tuned? Can I have multiple tunes available to use?

    Cheers

    Received this from CAPA yesterday. Is interesting that more and more companies are getting on the V6 tune bandwagon. HP Tuners were'nt interested 6 months ago I reckon the potential of the engine and therefore the market potential is finally being recognised.

    My Email: "Was just wondering if there have been SC kits done or fitted to the SIDI VE 3.6 yet? If so would be interested in prices, gains etc."


    CAPA Response - "We have the kit pretty much done, just need to wait for the tuning side to be done (HP Tuners).. Once this has been done, we can then fit up and finalise the installation.. this apparently is due (Software) to be done in the next 6-10months."

    Looking
    what sort of exhaust should be installed on a SC v6 ... i am interested greatly in doing this ... as for raptor i spoke to them last week and they said that although as yet they had no "kits" available yet they were looking to put one on one of these cars ... the only problem is they were in QLD i think and its not possible for me :(

    Can't charge a SIDI motor at the moment.
    No one figured it out yet!

    Not true!! Kits are available for the LLT motor in the US for the Camaro so it can be done. This will give you an idea of numbers: IPF Tuning | Supercharger

    Mines running fine. Been running for the last six months. The kit was never fitted to a SIDI motor. Only Alloytec 195. I've just been extremely slow, running a business comes first lol

    I've deleted all the info on my thread due to being stalked by a dodgy workshop I called out! Problem I had was I bought the SC and it was pretty noisy, so we decided to do a rebuild just in case. Haven't really had a chance to test the power figures, as the E77 Bosch ECU is a bitch to tune, so I've been going back and forth logging the car. I'll send you a link dude.

    My folks have just got an SV6 wagon - i'd love to convince them to supercharge it- just for something different- I agree anyone can have a V8- look at Nissan have done to a 6cyc GT-R ... would blow most V8's out of the pond i'd say ^-^ even a stock GT-R is comparable to a 911 Turbo :)

    Of topic I know but have you seen/herd how a forced 8 goes? Twin turbo v8's can pull around 1000hp fairly easerly.
