    I think mine cost, all up with import duties, around £2900.

    I initially thought about doing a self build, but when i worked it out, it was going to cost around £2500. not really worth all the aggravation

    7.5psi generally yields 200bhp at flywheel with the blower, as it sucks some engine power.

    Turbo system, might be a cheaper option for you, and would give slightly more power with an intercooler.

    never thought of turbo really. cos hen i could make the manifold myself or get one made would be a bit easyer to get parts as well
