I am no expert but i belive 6psi is about as mutch as safe on a std compresion engine. Best to be safe and ask. It looks as new condition. I would have thought it would not be hard to fit yourself. After book it in to a rr to tune it . Trailer it there and leave it to an expert.

    might see you friday

    Hi All

    I will be going to have a look at the Roush supercharger tomorrow, cash ready but it all depends on whats there. I spoke to WR this afternoon and it is not a complete kit. However I have asked advice and as long a certain items are there, the rest can be obtained. So unless I recieve a call from Dave ( he has seen the supercharger at WR workshop) before I leave home tomorrow morning at 0900 telling me that he did not see a Manifold (which the blower sits on) attached too or with the Supercharger. Ill just have to go and have a look. It will cost me a tank of petrol and some time but if it all works out I may have a ZT385 before xmas. And all for less (I hope) than 2500
    Fingers and everything else crossed.

    Regards

    Nige

    PS, Dave if you read this please contact me anytime tonight up until midnight on my moblie or any time after 0700 Fri AM on my home number or mobile up to 0900. After 0900 ring me and let it ring off and I`ll ring you back as ill be driving. Thanks

    Default Just Got Home

    I have just got home its 00;45 so too late to call. There is most of it there and in very good condition the lads that work there have good idea of what is what also one is a bit of a wiz with remaping and can do this no prob. Have a good look and im sure it will be worth a trip. I didnt get chance to call today sorry. Ask what happend to the mustang and see if there is amy bit you need off that. Loads of stuff there i dont think you will find what you want and if there is bits missing mail order from roush!! mutch cheaper then a kenny bell kit.

    Hi All

    Well, I spoke to Dave this morning and Matt from WR garage and the supercharger has no manifold, WR says it will fit without it but other experts have said without the manifold its a no go.
    Shame as it was probably the only way I was going to get a blower.
    Oh well the kids can eat again this week lol
    He wanted 1100 for the supercharger and a few bits, the blower is on sale on its own for 385 dollars from Roush + P+P

    Back to the drawing board..........

    I was going to post ad ask wht the script was, that would explain why Ive just had a phone call from them saying that they have a supercharger for sale !!

    I did ask if they had a manifold with it, but "stan" said they would have a look and Will would get back to me.

    the manifold is the tricky bit to get hold of as you say, S/C no use without it. I can make alternator brackets etc, but not a manifold !!

    Is it not available on any of the US sites, might be worth asking on some of the mustang forums over there, assuming it's the same.

    I counted them in and I counted them out (with apologies to Brian Hanrahan) - 005, 007, 019, 051, 103, 288, 354, 455, 577, 700 - the story continues.
