You already asked this, I think he would of already thought about it...
I saw the question but never answered. By the time I get up to actually putting the charger in I will most likely have a second car (NA Supra so I can supercharge that one too
) . Also when I do get up to that time I will only have 6-8months left on my P's. Next year one day after my birthday I off my P's!! Worked that one out well, failing my license the first time paid off. Failed it in spectacular fashion though haha... Or if its on before I have second car just play dumb, say its the A/C unit.
As for is it legal, well is driving around with turbo legal?? I made a post about 'legal' stuff in the carbon fiber thread and most likely this form of heavy modifications will fall into that category. It is not illegal you just may not be able to register it without an engineers certificate. Not being able to register something and illegal are two completely different things.
The SC kits for the Magna/380 are better options as they have the longer drive pulley extension from the centrifugal charger meaning less chance of sacrificing your A/C. That piece alone is a few hundred and getting it in a kit does potentially save a few hundred in getting one custom made if you come up short with another kit.
Sprintex is who I am going with to get my charger. We are working out which unit will be best for a CJ Lancer application and to see if any of the other parts in their kits for their other cars can help out in the Lancer before I put deposit down. Sprintex offer twin screw chargers which must be bolted up to your intake manifold and your intake. Sprintex chargers are some of the best chargers on the market and are capable of many gains.
With larger injectors, fuel rail and pump. Initially no. As all SC's are low boost, there is no need for them if you keep them as low boost. Even though the SC is a low boost add-on, they are capable of high boost applications and when you do decide to do that then you have to go with far more extensive upgrading of your fuel deliveries and also your internals.
