    Talking Supercharging

    Hi everyone!
    Although i have been on this forum for quite a while i dont really post many threads. So now i have decided to see if anyone would have any insight into any companies speacialising in supercharging? I have been debating this for a long time and not been sure wheather to have it done or not. With this i decided to have noz fitted for the time being! which i have runnig at 75 shot. With this came big breaks (AP and BIG PRICE from 888 ha ha Which i must say did a spended job and i was quite shocked with the intrest that my car got from the 888 gang due to it running noz) and suspension upgrade oh and a remap from regal, at the moment the car is running around 320bhp but as with most things it just dont seem that quick to me no more! Will post some pics in the next couple of days for you guys to see what you think! Cheers

    The car sounds great, so post up some pics matey.

    The GSI is about the 200bhp mark, plus your 75bhp jets of NOS = 275ish BHP. You're doing really well to get 320bhp.

    Im sure you cant supercharge a right hand drive GSi mate. They did it in Germany (i35) to a left hooker but are unable to do it to our cars due to the position of the steering column. Im sure it has been mentioned in the past that this was one of the reasons for the development of the 2.8 t.
    EDIT, have a look at this thread.

    Aparently so it is due to the steering colum but that was due to the type of supercharger the i35 used!! Aparently regal reckon they can do it using a different charger? but i dont have so much faith in them Which is why i wanted to know of any other places who speacialise in them. Cheers
