it can be done - you can put it where ever it will fit
Either on top of exhaust manifold, or ontop of the intake (bbm it wont fit under bonnet - Ea-Ed MPFI can fit ontop of and close the bonnet.)
There is a couple of threads on this. with pics.

If you really have to ask i really wouldn't be trying to twin charge my falcon.
Why are you trying to twin charge it ?
twin supercharge - or turbo and super charge ?

It a shame you didn't via cross three lanes into an oncoming semi.
For someone that asked the question on Sat at 6:06 pm, you doing pretti well to get it up & running. have you ever thought of mass producing those eaton brackets? I want one for the M112. LOL


When is April fools on again?

you will definately need to get someone to look at your suspension i had the same problem with my first series1 ea it lost control powering on around a slight left hand bend just after it had been raining. the rear jerked to the right and just as i corrected it the rear flipped out 90' to the left and ended up on the other side of the road coming to a stop across 2 lanes of oncoming traffic.

i knew beforehand that the rear suspension was f**k because the rear would pull to the left over bumps on the freeway @100kph too and from work, but i had no idea it would flip out sideways like it did @60 and at the time i had my 9 year old daughter in the back seat :( it was scary to say the least and just plain luck there was a break in the oncoming traffic at the time.


i also agree it takes alot longer than 2 days and involves more than just fabricating some brackets. after seeing some tosser in sydney called "KingCordia" boasting he had the fastest turbo cordia in Australia, it turned out he didnt even have a turbo fitted to the car, lol.. always best to back things up with photos and gives people room for positive comments. :)


this is a custom cnc milled bracket for a twin screw sprintex on an EL xr6 in WA.

ok even if u are for real, go to www.howstuffworks.com and read up on what a limited slip diff is, might answer the question as to why did the car move around under acceleration
