As far as I know, this is it that is out -- http://www.rs25.com/Forums/showthread.php?threadid=42

As far as Cobb's SC kit, I think it's like 2 years in the making now, so I wouldn't hold your breath.

You could make a homebrew kit, but it's nowhere as easy on the math aspect as a turbo kit, but MUCH easier on the manufacturing side. One bracket, some tubes, a large belt and you're about set. * Engine management extra.

It seems like all the Rimmer kits on RS's these days turned into custom kits due to the lack of parts/fitment by the Rimmer pieces themselves.

You could supercharge your RS, sure. Though the time you would spend doing so probably would underweigh just waiting and buying a kit.

As far as other kits, you might want to check out DNT Performance, who will have a kit ready probably sooner than the COBB unit. Most of the info on the DNT kit is over on www.rs25.com under the Forced Induction section.

Recently, I saw a Rimmer supercharger kit for sale in the Private For Sale Classifieds section. I know it was DJIMPREZA trying to sell it, though I'm not sure if it did sell. He was offering it for pretty cheap, might want to PM him and see if he still has it.

This is a recent thread, not sure if the guy sold it....

Come on 8, you know better than that.

1) THE DNT KIT IS NOT OUT YET!! I'll give you $20 if 3 kits are installed before december. I don't see how you can call the Templar DNT kit "is out"

2) Just becuase you want to bag on COBB at least don't stretch the truth. AND Cobb's kit will be out and on cars likely not much later than the time DNT ships there first kit.

WRSport - Pardon the poor wording about the DNT kit.

As far as the Cobb situation, it IS nearly 2 years in the planning... I remember when they first opened, them saying things about making an SC kit for the 2.5. How is that bagging on them?

Hehe... I made a cardboard model of the Eaton I was planning on using and found that it was DAMN hard to fit in that engine bay without a lot of tweaking. To be honest though, the kit I was working on was exactly as how the Brat's setup was going to be in the past with a custom manifold with the SC under it and calling it a day. Casting molds = money though. :-/

Realistically, I think that DNT's doing the right thing with a centrifugal setup versus a roots setup just due to heat problems, etc. No idea what Cobb is really working on, though. *shrug*

I agree and to be clear I think DNT's system is looking very nice and well thought out. It will be an excellent performer.

At the same time I know Cobb's system will not disapoint.

I thought I finally decided last night that I'm going FULL NA monster yet here I am wandering around in this forum

Concerning Cobb superchargers

http://www.wrxforum.com/cgi-bin/ulti...c;f=4;t=000003


How safe can a SC setup be on an otherwise stock motor? Which is what Cobb wants to provide ...

supercharger kits are easy to put together....not may parts for it.....

supercharger
brackets
tubes
belt
pulley
filter
misc. nuts and bolts

that will give you a basic kit there....if im missing anything, just add to it...

if you want to go up on the kit, intercooler, BOV, injectors, retard timing unit, etc...the list can go on and on...depends on how much money you have

i was thinking of a vortech supercharger and working with that.....but im afraid of the size.....i order a procharger SC for my porsche and that unit is LARGE....it has to be modified so it can fit under the hood

Thanks,
space
