Supercharger

Any info on supercharging 25DE please?

I know it cost some good bunch of money but I m seriously very interesting to collect all necessary info before proceeding hopefully next year.

Looking for +100 smooth horses.

All I can tell you is... I knew a guy with a supercharged R32. It sounded f**ken awesome
Not the typical RB growl, but a very unique and distinctive exhaust note

I'm sure someone on here has done it, can't remember the results though. Nice to go down a slightly different route though.

Yep.. I like torque from low revs all the way up, don't like turbo lag. Also would love to add some distinctive sound to otherwise quiet RB NA but would really need reliable setup even for daily driver. Rather small but reliable (easy maintainance?) charger if possible not to change gearbox etc big stuff, dunno exactly.

User Vortec here replied he has done it on 350GT V6 at MGT Racing (Skyline specialist) in UK so that's 1 workshop already
I guess no such a specialist in Ireland?

Not located in Germany, just one one of the few who is proud of their heritage
There is a German section on the forum though.

I've been racking my brains on the supercharged one from here, I've searched a few things but can't track it down. If I remember rightly they had to disconnect something like the aircon to power it.
I'm not trying to change your mind (as I like the idea of a supercharger) but with regards to lag, there are turbos out there with virtually zero lag so wouldn't say that would should be a deciding factor.

if you turbo the n/a i believe you will have no lag as the de is a high compression engine,maybe alot easier and cheaper than a charger,but giving the same results!

i had everything to add an eton charger to my NA but i have changed direction and im about to turbo it, thing that put me off is getting the bugger in.

However heard a supercharged RB30 and sounded insane

heres the link to the rb30 supercharged project

http://www.driftworks.com/forum/drif...drift-car.html

I think it would be pretty straight forward. Only pain is having to fork out for engine management/mapping which is why I didnt turbo my rb20e. so are you going to do it?
