well aftrer having my stage 1 supercharger for 6 months now its time to get stage 2 fitted next week, and i cant wait to feel the difference.thats the main reason i went for stage 1 only to start with so i can judge and feel wot a gain you get.plus something to look forward to seeing as they have stopped stage 3+4.

have been having dreams of seeing that front mount intercooler popping out the bumper!!hahaha.

also getting porche big brake upgrade and race file to have option of 400bhp.trying to source an oem spring belt tensioner to go on at the same time for no belt slip!!

my wallet will be a bit lighter but well worth it as this will then be how i am leaving the car and i dont need to do anything else!!my dream car!!!cant wait to pick it up!!

will let you all know how i get on when its picked up and had a tank of fuel used up!!wwwhhhoooo :driver:

Have you any photos ?

Has your insurance shot up due to the upgrade and who are you insured with ?

Sounds like Greenlight is best for modding. (Think I will get a quote from them)

andy, that sounds fantastic. Did Jim @ Star fit your stage 1? Did you source the kit yourself or all done through them?

no but I was at a RR day there a few years ago, he had a SC sitting on the shelf that someone dropped out of nuying and he was trying to persuade me. The car wasn't that old then so I declined. Sometimes I wish I had taken it though

well i was all set to go pick the car up tomorrow after getting the upgrade done but just had a call to say they finished it all then put it on the rr and it was making less bhp than stage 1?????!!!!it was losing boost,only 4.8psi,so knew something wasnt right!!!!they then realized that vf had sent the wrong pulley and belt for the upgrade!!ahahahahahaha.jim is so pissed off coz if he had just let the car go without rr it then i would have had a slower car than before!!!!!

and im pissed cos i cant go pick it up and have some fun yet untill they send the right pulley and belt out!!not a good start to the weekend!!!!:angry::(:crying:
