finally got a chance between the showers to give the car a road test today,
OMG what a totally different car now on the PLX set up, more responsive now and a lot smoother while driving
should of ditched the innovate last year when it started eating sensors, :x :x

Saw your car at classic Ford Santa Pod this year and hung about for a while, would have been nice to say hello!

Did you run it up the strip ?

was allowed to go for a birthday drive today lol.
car pulls poop loads smoother and harder from a standing start and its also more responsive on the PLX setup compared to the innovate,
cruising is also a lot smoother and no shunts like I was getting before,
looks like swapping to the PLX this moment in time was the best thing ive done

After spending most of Christmas and the week leading up to new years in bed ill,
Managed to get some time on the car new years day prior to going back to work

Rotrex Charger Off,
20190101_133235.jpg
Brackets Off,
20190101_134736.jpg
Procharger And Bracket In Place,
20190101_141510.jpg
Belt Fitment, Second Idler Needed Too,
20190101_144401.jpg
D1SC Charger,
20190101_144414.jpg
Off The Shelf Belt Too,
20190101_153648.jpg
Belt Fitted And Under Tension,
20190101_153701.jpg
Second Idler Now Fitted,
20190101_155238.jpg
20190101_155245.jpg
Boost Hose Installation,
20190101_162751.jpg
20190102_151221.jpg
Top Rad Hose Still Fits Too,
20190102_151241.jpg

The procharger sits under the bonnet a lot lower than the rotrex, 95% of the hoses seem to go back in the same place, need to source a couple though due to size difference in the two chargers,
And the charger inlet is slightly touching the rocker cover so the bracket is currently back with Allan being modified as we speak,
And also having a 3rd Idler gear fitted now down by the bottom pulley between it and the power steering pulley to put more wrap on the crank pulley to reduce any chance of the belt slipping,
