Yep, the Kenne Bell is the only one you'll get under the bonnet, but the blower itself doesn't sit in the valley, like you're asking. It's still mighty impressive though and makes bucket-loads of torque. There's a thread in the Trackside section showing XH5LWEPN's 2SCREWZ running a low 12 down the 1/4.

But don't expect to get away cheaply if you do use a Kenne Bell setup.
unless you import one from the states and do all the modifications yourself.

most setups have either clearance issues to the bonnet and fuel tails, or need some thought put around the dizzy being in the way.
converting to coil packs helps the 2nd point.

I think getting one to fit into an E-series may require a bit of massaging in the bonnet department. Nothing is impossible though.

You'd probably have trouble importing one from the US, as they're pretty strict with going through the correct distributor.

2nd hand is always an option :)

I have a feeling that XH5LWEPN contacted Kenne Bell directly to avoid the middle man and he bought it from them. Saved a fair bit of cash i'd imagine. Pretty sure fuel rails/lines need replacing with aftermarket items due to clearance issues but unsure on bonnet clearance. If your serious about this let me know, if Kenne Bell will allow it I'd be keen, perhaps organise a group buy.

Jeff got his from Bluepower.

There goes all that idea then :( I was aware the Bluepower had distribution rights, just heard jeff bought his direct. Maybe a bit of chinese whispers going on

Jeff definitely bought his through Bluepower. Kenne Bell will not sell direct to anyone in Australia and have said they will not honour any warranties on kits that have not been purchased through Bluepower in Australia. They can trace each kit by serial number and record where each kit goes. It's been said that if they catch any of their dealers in the US breaching the distributor rules, they'll come down hard on the dealer.

Where Jeff saved money is in doing the complete install himself and having me tune it for him.

Benny, I set up the base tune to get the car going, which turned out to be pretty close, and spent a bit of time in the passenger seat watching the datalogging and adjusting from there. We then spent a bit of time on the dyno fine tuning.

My tuning ability is limited to EEC V8 stuff on the 5.0 Windsors.

For someone reliable, I'd go to Simon at XFT
