Being different is a s**t idea when its not as good.

mate not sure if you realise the difference between supercharging and turbocharging but i would rather have performance with no lag mate and s.c ing can match if not better the performance of turbos plus its my car mate im not looking for a monster just an entry level performance car As im looking to upgrade to an fpv in the next 2 years.

lol.

I do know the difference. Maybe you need to spend some more time googling so you will too?

A centrifugal supercharged 6 will get shat on from great heights by a turbo 6 running a stock turbo in both power and boost response. Hell even my M112 charged engine wasn't as responsive as my turbo one.

Maybe you can google M112 while you're at it and find out about the different kinds of superchargers.

Mate honestly just not interested in doimg that as i dont give a cr4p about all that d**k measuring 15 yr old boy nonsense how often do you think i will be racing f6s just wanna do something differnt to gain knowledge. The f6 is a great car and in the next few years i hope to park one right next to the gt i also admire but till then......

Maybe you can google M112 while you're at it and find out about the different kinds of superchargers.

Bullet Cars at Yatala! Get a Rotrex!

cheers mate spoke to Greg there today actually got a quite reasonable price of 8k for a dry system all fitted up. Glad you told me about this business mate had actually never heard of them. Much appreciated, the rotrex s.c sounds a far more superior product over the vortech. Have you had much experience with the rotrex?


Got one on an AU2 XR6 ute making 215rwkw on 10.5psi. No drama's with the blower!

How do you gain knowledge by paying a workshop to fit and tune it?

Its not about d**k measuring, you came on here asking for advice and I have advised you against paying more for a lesser product.

No need to get your knickers in a twist.

the m112 will provide boost across the entire rpm band , dans supercharged setup was running only 5 psi with questionable tune ??

turbo will provide more hp/torque and better fuel economy for the same boost level in my experience but the p/d superchargers can also be setup to preform well

you need to plan this out very well as any kind of conversion will cost $$ , finding a tuner for the p/d blower seems to be more the issue

Love my FG stock turbo.... thought about being different, decided against it. I know that i have a fast, comfortable and reliable set up, and could do the usual mods and be hitting low 11 second quarters.

My advice would be to either do as Dan had said, just dump in a FG Turbo engine, or trade to a Turbo and move the rest of your stuff over.

In saying that, if you do decide to supercharge it, create a build thread and i will watch with interest... would be a cool project.

i blew off a so called 12 second wrx when i had my fg xr6 yet mine was stock. i would go with a supercharger in all honesty, the power is on tap anytime everytime whereas the turbo has to build up, i know there are alot of fights over which is best but it's all to a persons personal taste, if you wanna do something unique go supercharged and turbocharged, there was a guy here with an old datsun that had a turbo and a supercharger on an old 2ltr l20b and it crapped all over the v6 commies kept up with the v8's but losta bit of power after 4500rpm.

see i have always wanted to supercharge a six just to see how well it respond and the Orion motor is pretty tough As it is. I have a hand over price of thirteen on an xr6 turbo Ute at moment but i could get this supercharged for 8 however bye bye warranty i guess it will all depend on how im feeling come decision day As i am still a few dollars off either option. Thanks guys will def post a build thread if i do it though!

In all honesty you are posting utter generalised crap. Aside from the fact it doesn't appear you know that there is more than one type of supercharger you have obviously never driven or been in a properly set up turbo falcon if you think they are laggy.
