Hey all,

Thought I’d put up a picture of my supercharged 1275 Clubman for all to see.

Mind if I ask where you got the kit? Is it easy to fit?

using a weber is a better idea than the silly uphill pipe for the SU implementation - and it has a throttle pump

That's a very neat install! All seems to fit in very well.

Now that's just showing off. :lol:

Very nice and well thought out.

Is the green stuff coolant? What's it plumbed to and from?

No oil cooler required?
What is the compression ratio?

Very simple to fit.

Thanks very much, there is more room behind the charger then there ever was with twin su’s.
Having the clubman she’ll also helps.

Yes green stuff is coolant, runs from a temperature controlled pump/reservoir through a radiator mounted behind my grill then through a plate between the charger and the manifold.
Effectively a chargecooler

I have an oil cooler, not needed it yet.
Compression is 8.7:1, I’m running 98 octane fuel and will more then likely add a meth/water injection kit.
