Sometimes when you fall asleep at the wheels you need a power pole to get you back in line. that's great news once you got hold of the product head office. :lol:

Should of told them about the piss poor service these wankers are doing to them... never mind, I'll provide them with a link to this thread so they can see the effects bluepower are doing to their product. can't have resellers with piss poor attitude who don't give a rats a*** on a product they are representing and the potential clients they are loosing...

word of mouth travels far and wide people. it'll either make, or break you!


I don't see anywhere in this thread where it's been said Bluepower have done anything wrong. Only people who've not recieved anything back from Kenne Bell, USA. Fair enough, if you send an email to someone and don't hear back, then you have every right to be p****d off. But, in my experience, sending emails to a lot of performance joints fall on deaf ears. It doesn't make it right as, in my opinion, customer service is key to a successful business.

No it doesn't. But why have a poorly packaged belt driven turbo for double the cost of a neatly packaged exhaust driven one.
Besides. How many people actually plan to use all of the available air that an F series procharger can flow?

Maybe you should learn to read between the lines then join the dots to see the broader picture. do you want me to translate english to the english language so that you can understand english? :lol:

People with a fat cheque book maybe?

By the way mate, what's your take on this topic and the inquiry about having a 6/71 on a pre 85 model car, to much headache?
after all the bloke that asked the question did say he would only drive it on the w/end, so basically he may get away with a special interest registration. what I mean about that is cars that are modified but still have the right to drive on public roads. consider it being in the classic/modified category under the law.

Turns out i spoke to the Engineer and he said if i can keep it lower enough and comply with the emissions and noise laws and run it with EFI as well as retaining the EGR, I can put a supercharger on my xr8.

In that case the easiest method would be to use a centrifugal blower. Easy to mount and they actually give a nice increase in VE from idle which allows easy emissions compliance and better fuel economy.

Maybe in qld they might have some avenue open for him to do that but in NSW its basically "be a member of a hotrod club and drive a pre 48 vehicle, or drive at your own risk"

There are low profile 6/71 that complies with the law but it all depends on what you wanna spend on tinkering with fuel rails, injectors and lower mounting manifold.
best answer for our friend is he contact rocket industries directly on (02) 8825 1900 and inquire if the can source a custom made kit to fit, well if his heart is set on the idea of a 6/71...

Anyway, I would personally pick a couple of exhaust hair driers....
