Default 1.6 Supercharged NB build.

I thought I would start a progress thread for those other crazy fools that are into S/C rather than turbos.

Here is my car before I start (already been posted in my noob post).

Looks good. Did the car come factory with a 1.6l I know in the US all NB's have a 1.8l.

Yeah in Europe we get 1.6s

Less power than than 1.8 but it feels 'revier', there isn't a lot of difference between them on the road.

Only down side is that because the 1.6 is limited to Europe and Phillipines there isn't a wide selection of parts, most come from USA or Japan.

An MP62 1.6 NB has got to be quite rare.

Nice I like the car. I have had both 1.6l and 1.8l to be honest in close to stock form I will take the 1.6l all day it is almost as fast but gas mileage is much better.

So over the weekend I got some longer studs and some 20mm spacers to give me the clearance.

Its running great at the min.

The adaptronic ECU is still tuning it so it's early days yet.

It starts and idles great and the power picks up at 2k revs

Sure looks nice, although I knew a friend at the track who had a hard time with the supercharger belts. Sometimes they would snap without any warning or way too much slack, besides that it ran decent for a 1.6.

The Mercury Capri, if I recall well, is the same engine with the minor difference of the water circuation on the CH.

Nice! More details on the dual throttle mod please! Trying to figure out the routing for the cables. Thanks!

Greg: Ill get some pics of the DTB soon, I have done my back in fitting this so It wont be for a few days.
Basically there is a second throttle cable holder on the 1st TB and then it runs along the top of the radiator and then under the charger to the 2nd TB.
Very simple but very very effective - no lack of response what so ever.

Mazpr: Hopefully I wil have no issues with slack as the auto tensioner is taking care of that

Well the car has been for a dyno run and tune today.

I was expecting to get the car back with an optimistic 200 horses. The car had 110 from the factory so adding 90 is quite a large amount.

So we did this













And we got this:





WOW! thats a lot more than I was planning :blink:
Obviously the torque figure is wrong as the dyno needs recalibrating which is happening on Monday.

That is great. I would imagine this will make for a great street set up. I am really surprised to see this much power out of a supercharger. How much boost is it set to?

Im surprised it made that much! I think it comes down to the intercooler being sooo good.
It hits 11 PSI on my engine.

I have fixed the youtube link above so now it works. It sounded like a jet!
