    and @ mark after following various links and reading threads for all sorts of forums ref the non return valve i followed a link to buy one that a few had gone for only to recognise the part as i already have one fitted!
    What's a non-return valve and what does it do? I may be able to make use of it you see .

    not yet mate! all still to come! it probably wouldnt make any difference but before being mapped i wanted to do the bbtb and probably some lightweight pulleys too!
    and i'm still doing the research on injectors and maf etc as i dont wanna have it mapped and then decide i wanna push it further and have to have it mapped again!

    you need to get an a/f gauge quick or get it on the rollers. you have no idea on mixture at present and you run the risk of burning something out.
    you cant take shortcuts like that. false economy

    if you burn a valve or hole a piston its going to cost you alot more than a £150 a/f gauge

    Many thanks for the step-by-step m44lee, I honestly believe I can fit one myself without too many problems .... now.... where can I get me one o' them SuperChargers? I have emailed Downing Atlanta but received no response - I am guessing that they are closed for the Christmas / New Year period and am hoping to receive a response in the new year.... but just in case.... where did you source your kit from?

    Cheers

    Lee got his from another car that was being broken. The bad news is that you can't actually buy them from DA anymore as they have stopped making them, I know this because I bought the last one ever made! Your only hope of finding one is wanted ads on every forum and religious checks of eBay.
