Default anyone familiar with the brp powercard?

Im supercharging my 91 and have a chance to buy a brp powercard that was included in a sc kit for a 2001 nc. My question is would a brp powercard for a 2001 1.8 be compatable with a 91 1.6? Im definitely not opposed to changing injectors or fuel pump or any other minor issues. Any info is appreciated.

This is like asking "Guys! I have the chance of a lifetime to contract AIDS, herpes, and The Clap all in one fell swoop! What do you think?"

Call the guy who is selling it and tell him to throw it in the trash. These things need to be removed from circulation.

If you have the money to supercharge your car, then you have the money to grab a megasquirt setup. Just might have to save an extra couple months. Resist the McDonald's Syndrome.

I got the supercharger kit mounted to a motor + an oil cooler and some random parts for 500 bux. And sorry about being a complete and utter noob but i am the epitome of just that. I dont even own a computer. Im going to banish myself to the noob thread untill i figure this whole forum thing out.

How much you got your supercharger kit for is irrelevant to the amount you should spend on electronics to control your car.


What would i do? Sell all your random parts you got for $500 for more money on Clubroadter. Use money to buy a Megasquirt. Learn things. Tune.

Then turbo.

Win at life.

I understand that what i paid for the sc doesn't coincide with what i should spend on engine management. Im just trying to defend myself here. I didnt blow a ton of cash on a forced induction kit of my choice and think that engine management is a bunch of hooey. Mmlol. A sc kit fell in front of me and i had to grab it. My initial plan was to buy a ms and tune then turbo. I read on here that it was a good rout to go. Now what has happened is i have boost in my garage out of a running boosted car and i want it bad. Its giving me the wost case of blueballs you could imagine.

Im not posting from my playstation. I have a ps2 and i dont think its capable. The only reason i bought that was to play test drive -eve of destruction. If i could post from my gameboy it would probably be easier than this telular device.

And i think its a MP62.. its black and mounted on the intake side of the engine. Is that a good one? Nah its a 45. Ha.

None of them are good. Dont kid yourself. Youre is just exceptionally shitty.

I would just sit on it until you get the car running on MS with bigger injectors. Then you can experience the terrible thing you bought for your car without it destroying your engine.

Read up on it.
Its one of the oldest ones out there, but still leaps and bounds better than a powercard.
