How easy is it to bolt on a centrifugal supercharger? ( the sort that regal put on the v6 coversions)

if i run low boots ie 5 psi, can i get away with chiping it and bigger injectors, or would i need a 5th injector?
:confused:

cheers vxlgsi

If this is for the ecotech 1.8, don't waste your time.
The end results don't justify the hassles.
Here's basically what you need.
supercharger
mounting bracket between charger and bracket on engine
replacement cambelt roller bracket on engine, and now it gets annoying.
you will need a longer cam belt, (about 2 teeth longer), new cambelt rollers with enlarged centre bores (for the bigger bolts that sit in the bigger holes on the new replacement cambelt roller bracket).
etc
etc

You get the idea ?
Stick a 3.0 V6 in there instead. It's what the former owner of my supercharged 2.0 16v engine put in his bay when he had the charged engine removed.
