Was a nice day yesterday and I had some free time so I decided to check out and weigh the components of the Autodelta supercharger kit that I picked up a while ago. There has been comments on here for years stating that it is not worth supercharging the 2.0 as the weight of all the components add up to the weight of a V6!
It was previously on a 166 TS which was stripped because of rear end damage or something. Had been on it for 2 years apparently so has probably done 20k miles?
Its good to think that someone paid over £4000 for this kit.
Not an expert at all with engines or superchargers but It looks fairly simple; ie Supercharger as a custom bracket and fits in the place of the Air con pump and the air con pump is extended out the way with a very thick iron bracket. A large aux belt then goes round everything.
The Supercharger has its own oil reservoir (great another dipstick to check!) and oil cooler which looks in good condition.
There is a BMC induction kit, Intercooler in good nic, another MAF, Bailey Motorsport dump valve, Bigger Injectors, Autodelta remapped ECU, Modified intake manifold, custom pipes etc.
Intercooler - 2.95 KG
Induction Kit & Pipe - 1.80 KG
Dump Valve & Pipe - 2.25 KG
Rotrex Supercharger - 7.66 KG
Oil Cooler - 1.20 KG
Oil Reservoir & Pipes - 1.20 KG
Air Con Bracket - 0.80 KG
Misc Pipes - 0.55 KG
Intake Manifold - 4.54 KG
Minus the intake manifold as this is obviously already on we are looking at a weight increase of 18.41 KG so with the oil added call it 20 KG?
2.0 Selespeed Sportwagon : 1300 KG (1320 KG with supercharger)
3.2 GTA Sportwagon : 1460 KG
So thats a weight saving of 140 KG off the front end which should maintain TS handling
