Black supercharger pic went awol :(

Its gonna make around 7psi Im told.

It boosts as soon as you put your foot down. There is a actuator that bypasses the air so at cruise and idle its not boosting.

I can get it to whine a little playing with the throttle but it should be better once it can boost up.

No plans for an airbox but I might do a 3 inch intake and run cold air from the outside the engine bay into the airbox.

The blower in black does look pretty good, actually looks stealth. Would look mean combined with the rocker cover sprayed in gloss black with polished fins :P

Ill get a vid once it makes some boost, its doesnt make much sound at all atm.

Here is a photo of the extra pulley they use to help with belt wrap around the blower. You can see it no longer uses the top pulley but the factory tensioner is still used.

Interesting re the non use of the top tensioner pulley.

Do you think the EF/EL belt guard would still fit?

Actually, looking closer at the above photo, I think it would still fit easily as you cant see the the half moon thingy on the rocker cover with it on.

Cheers

i dont think it would fit the belt cover on because the thermostat housings position i noticed that when i chanded from ed to el in my BBM conversion i used the belt cover and relised i had to chande my thermostat housing (the neck part) to clear the cover?

Just a thought

AU's use the same top half of the thermostat housing an EF/EL so i dont see any reason why it wouldnt fit, if the belt is too close just thim the side of the plastic cover to allow a bit more room, well worth it for the stealth look i rekon
