Exclamation MRT supercharger for EJ25

I was looking for the headers mentioned elsewhere, and I found this...

"SUPERCHARGER KITS now available for both 2000 2200 and 2500 cc 4 cylinder Subaru non turbo engines."

Find it <a href="http://www.mrtrally.com.au/performance/photosubaru.htm">here</a>, under Engine Parts.

That's Rimmer's early Eaton top-mount kit... isn't it?

That would be the early Rimmer kit that required the hood "blister".

MRT says they had supplier and quality issues. They want to find a new source for the superchargers. The kit would cost $4000-5000 AUD, which is a great price for forced induction.

You can probably guess who they're talking about when they say supplier and quality issues.

Unhappy

Sorry guys, I guess I should've looked a little harder. Oh, well. Better luck next time.

Isn't that the one that made you cut a hole in your hood to install ?

What a goofy setup.

not really goofy. It's all that could be done back then. It was for the 1998 (DOHC). The extra cam housing gets in the way. the only place left to mount a SC was in the rear of the motor. the sc's shaft was extended to the front (So the pulley can reach the belts). And still there wasnt enough room for the pulley. the only remedy was a hole in the hood. ah well.

Is there any way to install a giant "Roots" style blower on an RS???

hmmmmm.... 50psi of boost at 1500rpm....

There is a BMW hatchback that I have seen around Plano about 4 times. It started life as a 318ti I think, but it has a huge blower sticking out of the hood. That car is just MEAN.

I will get a snapshot of it next time I see him.
