I'm 17 and i have just sold my ef falcon and bought a series 3 au :). i want to make it fast. i was thinking a good size supercharger kit will do because i want acceleration not top speed because i already have that :). i have extractors, 2 1/2 inch exaust, racing cams, soldlifters. please tell me any more idea’s.

superchargers will give you get up and go off the mark. and as long as you do the right work with the supercharger it will work very very effectively.

turbos are god in their own respect. yes they have a little bit of lag, but this also depends on the size and configuration of the turbo you go. the smaller the turbo you go, the earlier it will come on boost, but you will lose it as the revs get higher. bigge rturbo kicks in a bit later in the rev range but holds it better the higher you go. this is why you need a happy balance, or you have to sacrifice either end

Go get a Capa kit, comes with all you need. 8k should be enough to get a 9psi Powerdyn kit with water injection. Saves a lot of hassles if it comes with everything you need.

Were's the fun in modding a car if you pay someone else to install it?
The Powerdyne isn't hard to install at all...

i think it just screams " i watch the fast and furious ". besides that the whole legality of it and the expense of filling it up as well as the risk of a big BOOOOMM if its not installed right
