since you are in brissy you should go to RDP (redcliffe dyno performance) cause they have powerup packages that guarantee results. they are pricy but they have done the work a million times before and i know they have both supercharger and twin turbo setups

First thing to do would be getting a new clutch, Textralia are good and can handle alot of punishment and power. Give Chris at Blue Power a call (03) 9305 3000 and he will be able to give you all the answers you need about superchargers and what would be best for you. He's a top guy and he's not going to f**k you around and try and sell you s**t you don't need

Sorry to be negative, but you probably shouldn't go forced induction, until you know what's going on. Plus as mentioned 10g isn't enough to do forced induction properly, which will only lead to trouble, and you spending twice as much as you need to to it properly the first time.

Check the price on a new BOSS engine (I've seen second hand 260's going for over 15K from wreckers) you don't want to be blowing yours up.

Sounds like you need to do some research. Be warned however, you're coming across as a 'gunner' (gonna do this) performance shops don't like that much, and will probably give you the run around/fob you off.

Research up with the following, and more in these forums, then go talk to the pro's.

- CAPA - http://www.capa.com.au/kits_ford_ba_xr8.htm
- BluePower - http://www.bluepower.com.au/bpr/home.html (their site isn't much good, see there forum on www.fordforums.com.au)
- Herrod - http://www.herrodmotorsport.com.au/ (site's down at the moment)
