    Thumbs Up Mk4 van with C20XE and a supercharger with Mk4 GSI interior/wheels and a coup T front

    A bit of a mix and match project going on here:

    Well got my red top on sat to wolfie for lending me his engine crane.







    Thought i would fit the engine just to make sure all fits fine and i could fit the super charger under the bonnet without to much trouble.

    Swapped the f20 gearbox for a f18.

    Made i quick engine mount to mount the engine on the mk4 supports made out of a wide belt eco tec engine mount some 10mm steel plate and a mk4 gearbox rubber mount still need finishing though



    Few pics of the engine in the engine bay









    And a few possible locations for the supercharger

    Above the gearbox





    For this idea i will need to get a shaft machined up to run off the the v belt then in turn move the supercharger at the other end or weld a pulley to the driveshaft and run the charger from that (same as a rs turbo abs pump)

    Another idea which is the one ill prob use is to mount it on the left hand size of the engine where the air box shood be and get the pulley on the charger machined to accept a v belt instead of a multi-v belt and also will need to mod the inner wing a bit.

    few pic on the left hand side of the engine bay









    Just need to make some mounts for the charger now then rip the whole lot out again and strip it before the final fitting

    Few more pics

    Nice project, always good to see something a bit different. Would have thought the supercharger would be better off mounted on the drivers inner wing as in the second location shown as theres more room on that side, and that area is basically wasted space anyway.
