Getting the drive for a supercharger will be the hardest part IMO.

My R1 engine was turbo charged,just removed it all as converting to car engine.

Which R1 engine have you got?

5PW is 2002-2003 20 valve engine sane as the carbed R1?

Or if it's deffo 2006 it will probs be 5VY 16 valve?

I converted my carbed engine to FI running 8 injectors,running 7 psi of boost on standard compression engine it was 197bhp,went well.torque was massively improved

Yes you are probably right. I hadon't a rotrex Toyota engined striker that was mightily impressive hence haven't really looked at turbocharging. Pity I couldn't have seen your install.

I looked into this a bit. If a rotrex you're looking at a C15-60 from memory, that's what TTS base their kit around. As far as I know not so many people have forced induction on a 5PW, there seem to be more conversions done on the models either side so either the earlier carbed 4xv or 5jj or the later 5VY.

OK next question, how do I know which engine I have? Is there a marking with the relevant letters on. I do know car was built in 2006 new with injected engine.

You could still buy new 5PW engines in 2006 so year of build won't help much.

A 5PW will have 5PW stamped on it somewhere near the sight glass or sump, I can't remember!

You may also be able to work it out from the engine number with a bit of googling.

The 5PW has a number of parts in common with the earlier engines so you may also see 5JJ or 4XV on certain parts.
