    Welcome Neil,

    Someone mentioned you & your car to me but never managed to find it to have a look! Maybe another time perhaps.

    Cheers, Gary

    Yes installed it myself, not that difficult if the instructions were correct. Took a couple of weeks ie evenings and some weekend so total approx 30 hours but did spent time cleaning and redoing bits

    No not yet, only done 1000 miles since install, at 2500 is the oil change on the supercharger, I need to fit an updated clutch first.
