    • Don't do it, it'll just rain all day, you'll never get it ready, or it will break down on the way home

Hi!

Since I will be receiving a Supercharger at JAE, what do you all reckon, can I safely fit it or should I not take the risk of not making it back in time to the ferry on Sunday?

At least I'll have to come prepared:

- Tarp for under the car as we'd probably stand in grass

- hydraulic jack (2-ton, got it)

- 2 axle stands (got them)

- Set of socket wrenches (got it)

- tool box with spanners/screwdrivers,pliers,allen keys etc. (got it, well assorted)

- Battery powered drill (got it)

- some kind of tent/cover in case of rain

- beer for the LOC helping hands (got it!)

Anything else to think of?

Reliability should be okay I think, any possible problems were with the valve spring/cable, I'm sure there'll be someone who knows how it should be adjusted.

Any thoughts? Could be an interesting workshop.

Cheers,

RX-Men-8

i reckon with all the s/c experts that will be there, that there wouldn't be a better time to do it. And you will have a good journey to look forward to to try it out. :driving:

Also the heat shield needs modifying so you should be able to have mine.

Is this correct :question:

You will need the anti-tamper bit to get into the ECU box, also can you swap heat covers with ad77 as you need to cut hole in yours :D

I am sure with the number of people with a s/c there - it would be possible to fit itin a day.

How much do you need to get under the car though?

No way would I be getting under a car that was being propped up on grass

Rip up a few council slabs and put them under the jack and axle stands, should be OK. Alternative plan B is take a pick and spade and dig a trench to lie in :D

Has the car been lowered, if it was Mr Singh's you would need a very deep trench :)

Thanks guys, this sounds really encouraging and exciting! :D

Also the heat shield needs modifying so you should be able to have mine.

Mine is LHD, don't know if that makes a difference. But if needed can we do a swap?

I'll get an anti-tamper torx bit, thanks for the info ;)

Ehhhmm... Solid German idea (sorry Andi ;) )

Sounds great, but I'll be sooo out of funds :crybaby: Thx 4T offer :)

Yes, 30mm (TTE Springs) I'll think of extra support under the jack and stands (strong wood panel). Not digging my own grave :D.

Thanks! LOC Rulez :zee:

Sounds like a plan!

the special anti tamper Torx

10mm and 8mm sockets, spanners

cross point screwdrivers

Good, useful pointers are already provided! Things I didn't know like the draining the cooling system. And indeed, the front manifold heat shield seems to be in the way a little. I think the old (Black, without the lowered rev limiter) ECU will be no problem, I won't be able to run the cat so hot as the Germans on their Autobahn.

Keep 'em coming!

Thanks,

Worst case scenario for the Manifold heat shields is to remove it entirely until you get home - then cut it yourself and refit them!
