Yeah definently alot more torque which I think is the main dIfference from the supercharger.just literally no throttle is required. It does have pacemakers full exhaust, intake, bigger injectors, 3.45 diff, aftermarket ignition system, and a j3 chip with remaped fuel
timing ignition etc. But at the moment it's on a very mild tune so it's fast but not as fast as you would think with all the kit it has. Once tuned it will fly.

Does the thing say sprintex on it somewhere? Got a model number or something stamped on it?

It looks kinda like an SC14 which might explain why its only running 4psi and doesnt feel fast.

Yeah I thought it was one of those little toyota superchargers. But it's a tad different to the sc14 it does produce boost but the previous owner never got it tuned for performance,it flys at higher speeds and sc14s kinda crap out in bottom end power where this thing does the opposite. I'll provide the right facts on Tuesday, it will be booked for the dyno this week aswell.

nah its not a SC14.

the receipts are for $2500 for the supercharger.

a SC14 costs like $250...hell you can pick up new units for $450 of ebay.

im going to track down a smaller pulley, probably a sigma aircon pulley. then take it down to hyperdrive to be tuned with the smaller pulley.

hopefully should see near or close to 200kw. i mean it is a fresh tickford with full exhaust and intake. so should pull well with new pulley and remapped J3.

plus thanks to the J3...no fuel cut off...that is if i ever feel the urger to go over 180 :)

Please don't.. Because when the rear extension housing lets go after 180, it won't be pretty..

ahhhhh so thats why its limited to 180.

i thought it was more or less that the single piece tailshaft eats it over speeds of 180.

but i have the tickford tailshaft and computer. so im fairly sure that the XR stock comp wasnt limited to 180??

probably wrong.

but iam really never running that late, so it shouldnt be an issue :D im a bit of a nanna in my cars.

more or less just bragging rights and cruising around at 50 saying...yeah well i could go 400km/h if i WANTED to. :roll:

Yes sir she is in the driveway :) I have been driving her straight for 3 hours haha, she ain't no slug that's for sure, but you have to drive it hard. I.e get the supercharger spinning. Hwy cruising is amazing, slight deppression of accelerator and you briskly pass everyone, sooo much torque. Sounds mean aswell. Love the factory stereo on the ghia aswell with the amp haha really cool. But yeah she's low, handles really well nice and tight. Pulls hard, reasonable of the line speed nothing special. Hold gears though and make the charger work and she's a monster haha. Everyone stares at it as I drive along, kind of annoying. But yeah for the price haha loving it. Book dyno this w.e probably get some figures.

ok i have entered the holy shrine ( the glovebox)

and it is literally filled. like you can barely close the thing because it is choccas with receipts.

so i went through them all.

supercharger kit was purchased and fitted by chipmaster $3500

suspension work, power steering, front housing, diff, radiator etc etc almost a receipt for everything. all major ancillery components have been replaced with new units. its crazy.

pacemaker 4499 headers with lukey exhaust $900

full engine rebuild with report, $4200 forged internals etc etc.

literally almost everything has been replaced.

all the work was done at 120,000km's and it now has 151,000kms


literally i cant stop staring at this thing. i cant believe i got it for $4700

i also beat a N/A ba XR6?? so if thats an indication of its speed. pulled a length or 2 on him pretty easily.

BA XR6 NA is nothing special, BA XT with a body kit. Supercharger looks similar to SC14 and if so is too small for the 4.0 I6, which is why no low end and at 4psi is not going to do much.

Just as a reference, this is what a sprintex charger looks like.

Maybe yours is an older model...

Either way chuck a different pulley on there and pump some boost into that forged motor ;)
