Hey just looking into xr8 charger kits on capa and i see they have reverse rotation kits and also the normal vortek crank and pully kits with their own seperate running belt. Whats the pros and cons of the two different systems? Obviously the reverse rotation kit is easied to install but what about reliability and power outputs etc etc, which kit is prefered? Thanks

+1 for PD. If ever there was a motor crying out for more bottom-end oomph, it's the Boss 260. Plenty of options available, some even emissions tested and certified.

Kenne Bell from BluePower, or a Yella Terra whipple kit. Enough said!

I can't see any further differences and the power figures quoted are the same for the same psi quoted and even intercooled. Capa did state that the standard rotation with the pulley is better for higher output applications so better to ask them why. I have a reverse rotation V2 and looking for the BA XR8 bracket to suit. Either new or second hand or a photocopy so I can machine one up. Capa quoted $995 for their bracket which is way overpriced.
