Just thought I would give a small update, the Eaton's bearings have now been replaced although they weren't needed apparently! If you do find one about with a slight rattle, you can buy the kit from these guys in the USA http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SUPERCHARGER-R...item56445327cc
As for the intercooler, you'll need a Toyota Celica GT type, because its slim but wide enough to fit in front of the radiator in that small slot.
I've also been speaking with a guy who SC'd his 145 2.0 twinny with ease, he said we can still use the A/C, just bolt it underneath the compressor, there's plenty of room for tweaking etc, The only thing he didn't mention was the new belt length, Not sure where to start
I've ordered a boost gauge, but not sure where to install it as I don't want it to ruin the look of the dash, I'm tempted to remove the center airvent (PH2 dash) and install it there, just block the air pipe behind it, I believe the gauge is 60mm with Bezel too
My mates have been whining at me about sorting the handling out on the car too, Although this is on hold to be honest, I'm more than happy, it's probably the most responsive of cars on the road from standard!
I'd love to completely powerflex the front but that involves More time, more money, I'm keeping this baby on a budget at the moment!
As for the boost setting, i'm going to convert it into manual, I'll be installing a mechanical bypass valve to allow air to escape at a certain psi if I feel the engine is becoming unstable, I'll be able to adjust it by looking at the gauge and getting the optimum!
Last bit will be a Remap, I've looked around and companies seem to be charging £200 for a 10bhp increase, I'm not too worried about the power increase, I want the curve balanced instead of it being an on/off switch!
