Hi guys, thanks for all your advice on my previous threads. Once again I want to pick your brains - I'm leaning towards supercharging my 186 in my LJ Torana rather than turbo or putting in a V8. There is a place called TTT engineering in Dandenong run by Mark Connor (he used to work at Yella Terrra).They do supercharger conversions on old Holden 6's and use an Eaton M90 "Terracharger". Kustombitz in Croydon also have a similar supercharger. Does anyone have any advice/experience/workshops you can recommend?

I have one of Marks Terra Charger setups in my EH 202.

I have had it for several years and nearly 20,000 km's now, and all still very good.

All I can say is that his knowledge, experience and attention to detail are worth paying for.

Here is some info on my car

I was at the dyno day, but it was already booked full. I suppose that is one day where the numbers are out too, not just the looks?

I will try to get out on a run when I can.

Glad you posted in this thread Pete, I figured it was right up your alley!

Your beast has to be the neatest looking supercharged 6 I've ever seen. All under bonnet too is awesome :)

I like this side-on shot, it shows the height nicely....

I have changed the oil cap and air filter since that shot though.

I still have never had it on a dyno since the new cam. Umm that was about 4 years ago.
