    thought id post this in here aswell incase anyone was interested in doing the same!

    overall this took me around 10 hours to fit but thats with a good few breaks and a few snags so think if i did it again i could nearly half that time!

    anyway heres some pics as i went!

    all the kit laid out



    had a laptop set up with the installation guide on



    removing bits









    upper manifold off


    fuel rail removed






    i hate wiring and ended up having to ring neil a couple of times for advice! so cheers neil :wink:



    didnt have a clue what was what so had to label everything up with different coloured tape so i knew where they went back



    lower manifold off



    steel braided fuel lines fitted



    new idler pulleys fitted



    new gasket fitted



    supercharger going in



    and then how its been left till 2morro



    once the bolts are tightened there isnt too much more left to do!
    however there is a couple of small rubber hoses that i cant seem to find where they go! :oops:

    well i carried on today! and she lives!!!!!!! :twisted: however i broke the bleed screw and i snapped the aircon tensioner bolt

    heres the pics!

    manifold tightened up and fuel rail fitted



    throttle body and maf fitted



    air fiter on the elbow wouldnt allow me to refit the pipercross as its a touch to large but i'll sort that soon



    belt refitted



    my johnny age 5 diagram to help me :oops:



    sheared off the aircon tensioner :oops: so no aircon for the moment





    and finished bar bleeding it! grabbed the camera to film the first start but it died! :oops: (sounded like a bag of nails the first start anyway!)

    after adjusting the throttle cable i got it to idle ok and then went to bleed it and broke the bleed screw! :oops:
    so you'll have to wait for a vid until i get another!

    but it does sound mean when you rev it!

    well changed the broken injector today and that sorted all the problems out so im chuffed to bits and took it out for its maiden voyage and im still speachless
    its totally transformed the car!
    another thing on the list of things to do was upgrading the speakers etc but i dont know how often that going to be used now as i have a new favourite tune! :twisted: :
    heres a quick vid just after the 1st start up! only on a crap digi camera and it does it no justice!



    as always comments good or bad are welcomed! :wink:

    havent uprated anything but if i decide to start ramping it up then i may start looking into it!
    i may have to look at uprating the clutch though!

    excellent work man
    i was considering the DA kit for a while but the shear cost of it put me off, i went down the M52 route instead
    i wouldn't worry about the air con pulley, just leave it off, you will get an extra couple of bhp with out it
