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 ;) )

could bring a prolex-uk manifold along...............you'd fly home then !

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!
