Open the boot, put the engine in, and close the boot.

And the ruddy thing fits with no problem whatsoever, with little room for movement.

And it is below the carrying rate!!

Hi Robert.
What's it doing in there?
Hmmm... A dual engined 3 series,interesting...But very silly.
Surely it belongs in the front of your GD....Or is this a different one?

No, I have pulled the engine out of my GD to take up to Ken at EDA, as I have changed the pulleys on the s'charger for more boost, and it needs jetting properly as I am getting good top end, and a fluffy bottom (ooeer).

Ken is also going to pull apart the s'charger and hopefully make it a lot quieter.

Hi Robert.
I bet your engine bay looks quite busy with all that lot squeezed in,do you have a picture that you could post so I/we who haven't see it in the flesh could take a look?I assume that your blower is not the Hot rod variety that pops out of the bonnet...or is it?:-)

Rob My good man,

where did you get the blower from?

might think about one later on and wasjust researching options, cannot find much about it on the web. Seen a couple of twin turbos :7 , but after 3 yrs of turbo lag (although only 1/2 sec or so :( ) in my T4, would prefer something different!!

Cheers

I don't really take any pictures of my car, but when I put the engine back in, I will take one then and post it up.

It is a centrifugal blower from Procharger. I could have gone with a quieter vortech, but the vortech wouldn't spin up to 60,000rpm, and you need boost retard units etc, but with the Procharger, all you need is an intercooler for proper hp gains and no messing with timing etc.

I am about 8 miles from Wellingborough, and when I get the engine back, you are more than welcome to pop round, as I did do a whole raft of research,

Best Regards

Robert
