    Have now run the engine with the supercharger connected for about four hours. The power is linear and smooth. The handling is superb. Heading out for more fun this afternoon.

    Looking good, have you put a GPS on it? How many more revs is it pulling with the supercharger hooked up? & what is WOT? 8)

    Is up around 400rpm up with the charger pulling 5900rpm. I forgot to give Nick my GPS :?
    We pulled the charger today to inspect the belt and idler we made, and its all perfect, so I sorted the only weak bit I felt was left, which was the single bearing in the idler.
    So I drew a pick for my guys to machine in a 2nd bearing which worked really well.
    Nick is away with the boat over the weekend so its really only a matter of putting some hrs on it now

    On 96 octane fuel, We are running exhaust temp sensors as well as 02 now that the headers are on, The unit impellers and shaft have also been balanced which made a huge difference, We will get a vid up as this thing sounds COOL!!
    The boats handling at speed is awesome
