Blitz supercharger kit.

Post by MadTaz » Fri Aug 22, 2014 2:07 pm

Well I have taken a punt and bought that supercharger kit that was for sale in the selling section.

So watch my project thread there will be exciting times ahead.

My plan is to first obviously fit,remap and generally iron any issues.
Once ran for about 6 months I'm going to drop my engine and rebuild with new housings and all the usual rebuild stuff. I'll also tart the engine bay up at this point and get it all colour coded.

Should be fun!

If there are any hints tips advice out there then please post it up.

Please keep it constructive thanks

The kit is getting sent straight to a rotary guy I know, he has dealt with this kind of thing before and really knows his stuff so, when he says it can be done, it can be done! :D

But welcome any input or ideas you guys have also!

Personally i would have stayed away from this kit, as its renown for killing engines.

You are going to have to plough some money in to get this to work correctly, and even then there is no certainty that your engine will run with any longevity.

:whathesaid: didnt like to comment on the guys for sale thread as I never like it when people spout on FS threads.
hope it works out for you but that kit is known to go bad quite quickly, if you are sending it off to someone i assume they will make it better, but fingers crossed all goes well.

Until people are willing to take the risk and start experimenting with things then no one will know for sure, 'constructive comments' are useful as I'm sure he's heard all the usual 'it won't work', 'it's going to cost a lot' already.

People have with this kit, that's part of the issue. However I'm sure Taz has done his research and it has to be within the realm of possibility so all the best! :)

I know out the box this is not a great kit, but I was going to drop my engine next year anyway so if it kills this one it's no great shakes really.

The estimate I've been given to get this kit running how it should will be about £1500-£2000 that's pretty good value for such a power increase.

Yeah I did some research owners in Japan and Australia have had good success with this kit so I know it can be done, the key for them was a good engine map,.

I'm not really sure, I would imagine it would be something to do with the mapping, the engine may be pinging or detonating.

Mechanically it must run ok, I know there was an issue with chewed belts but that's probably just an alignment issue.

The reason this kit was unsuccessful was because when it came out there was no ECU to go with it to control fueling and timing but now with ECU's like the Adaptronic out there in the present day with the correct fueling upgrades and a decent ECU there's no reason that this can't be made to operate successfully

hope this helps

I believe we are going to try and map this on the standard ECU, we are in talks with Steve the engine mapper at the moment on the best way ahead.

I'm pretty sure program's such as Mazda edit weren't available when this was first released so you're right there Clive.

A super charger for not much more than a good induction kit and some coils, if you get this up and running mate I'll be bringing my car over for the next one fitting :p

Will keep you all updated via this and my project thread of the progress, the kit should hopefully be with us this week. The supercharger will be getting stripped and serviced.

The kit itself will be getting bolted on hopefully around mid to end of September., mapping should follow shortly after
