hi

Is it possible to fit a G60 supercharger to a 1.9d? looking at pictures of how they mount on the golf engines, looks possible?

will it even work? will it be better than a turbo conversion? if it will fit, it would be a darn site easier than a turbo conversion, or a engine swap.

thanks

It wont fit on its original bracket,the fuel pump is where it would fit to.Also a diesel reaches max rpm at 4500 so it would only create half the boost a G-lader could create on a higher reving petrol engine.Turbocharging is much more effective and effficient on a diesel engine.

nice one!

Been looking at whats involved with a turbo conversion, with having to get the oil return back into the engine, might as well get a golf and swap engines/and or turbo etc. as the taping into the back of the block, assume would have to take the engine out anyway?

managed 70 out of the non 1.9d on motor way, but coming out of cornwall was doing 30 on the hills otherside of okhampton :( am going to turn the pump up a touch to see if that helps at all.

thanks
