You will always chase more power, no matter how much you have you always want more :D Anyway, talk to the guys at CAPA, they were great and pointed out all the issues they had with the Powerdyne blowers, and although they highly recomend the Vortech, they don't push.

hey how come no one has mentioned before that you can use a unichip to get the EEC to play along with boost before? every time ive seen a thread asking about eecv and boost, everyone says it cant be done, now im off for some research

They can't really be accurately tuned for boost (well the I6 EECs anyway) because no matter what chip/unichip you use you are still limited to 100% load. What they can do however is pull out all the timing required for max boost at 100% load value, obviously this isn't ideal but it does work.

One other question, the prices CAPA quote on their site - do they include fitting?

I think so but i dont think it costs much. You get a discount (i forget how much - 10% ? 5%?) when you order for a self fit.

No supply only, CAPA don't actually fit any kits they only make them.

Woops. So grant - the discount they give out - is this for someone who is fitting it in their backyard, and they only charge the full amount if you are having someone like tilbrook install (so full list price + tilbrook's labour?)

Never heard of the discount, most of the people I talked to said they paid the price listed on their website for supply only, maybe they just liked you :lol:

Can't remember what engines the XGs run, I think they run the the eb style non-bbm so an EB kit will go on fine. Otherwise if they run the EF/EL BBM setup then you will have to get the EF/EL kit.
