I knew what Liam ment Yea it looks off to me, i know some of the cheap ****** SC's have odd set ups
I striped this a few years back after the owner killed the engine:-(Hello Guys,
It seems i've received a few questions regarding my car that is currently advertised on eBay. Questions that are generated from members on this thread.
I will firstly say that the original question that was asked was answered as you can see above. The reply i got from member ghostdog is as above, apart from what he ommited, being 'In the words of dragons den, sorry but i'm out..... the auction is **'
When someone writes back to my perfectly reasonable answer 'THE AUCTION IS **' then that is the reason i stated that the answer does not warrant a reply from myself.
Reading this thread is pretty diappointing to say the least, I have nothing to hide regarding this car and have tried to be as open as i can and will continue to do so.
Put things into persepective here, were talking about a 9 year old car which i have advertised for what i feel is a reasonable price. Feel free to disagree though!
Regarding a few quick points made above
1. The car could be put back to standard for a minimal fee as this procharger set up is a bolt on application, (and i may look to do that if the car does not sell)
2. Regarding the 2 year time frame to fix the charger . Delivered to superchargerrebuilds in the USA on 3-08-11 ... Delivered back to me on 30-08-2013 with over 60 emails back on forth. I have documented proof of this
3. Regarding the replacement engine. I have documented proof of the replacement engine which i paid £1200 for with just over 30,000 miles on it and had it professionally replaced with a brand new clutch and slave cylinder. (which again i have documentation for) Fitting bill £800 (Reason for engine replacement is a cracked piston liner on a trip to newcastle.
4. The header tank is aftermarker and expanded due to pressure built up from the split piston liner. The grey part is a small repair to stop it leaking.
There is a full forum post regarding the car when it was originally modified which can be found here. (you need to be a member to view it) pictures of the full install are there.
Lastly, to say that i have been 'BUSTED' or similar is ridiculous, and i'd expect a little more repect than that!!! What exactly have i been busted for? I am a business owner and could continue to put the car back to its supercharged state but i don't have the time or patience anymore. If you read the advert, you will see that i talk of the fact the supercharger is no longer on the car. There is however the full kit, including an inline fuel pump, and a Procharger engine managment unit which comes into play under boost (or induction from the supercharger) The supercharger is mounted to a plate with a belt directly connected to a pulley on the crank, so it is a bolt on solution. As you will read in the advert, i state that you would need to BUY a new supercharger like a Procharger C-1 or a vortech. I would add though that in no way would i guarantee it will work as i personally have not had it working.
I take onboard some of the points above regarding photos of the engine and system components. I will re-visit my advert and see where i can make assurances and include the STOwners club forum link (which details just about everything you need to know)
Guys, this is a project for someone that knows what they are doing! Bottom line is, a second hand unit, and some professional time and the car would be magnificent! Something i no longer have the will or the time for!!
That said, any questions and i will be happy to answer.
Here are a few picks of the original install
