Supercharger Kit nears completion, need a little help.
Hello to all. I am new to this forum, let me introduce myself and tell you a little bit about a project we have been working on this last year.
My name is Carl Fausett, and I run a company that develops performance parts for certain Porsche and Ferrari models.
Our big-ticket item is supercharger kits. I have developed supercharger kits for the 16v Porsche 928 V8; the 32v Porsche 928 V8; the 4 cyl Porsche 968, the Ferrari Mondial V8; the 16v Ferrari 308 and the 32v Ferrari 328 models. A complete list of the kits I have engineered and produced are here: 928 Porsche® Superchargers and Supercharger Kits
Last year, I branched in to Mercedes-Benz models, specifically the SLK 320. Love that car.
We had one in our shop, and made serious in-roads on developing a supercharger kit for it. Pictures below.
We have the crank pulleys and brackets made, the fuel system mods designed, and our baseline dyno pulls done. The vehicle was on loan to us and we lost use of the vehicle before we could finish the kit.
What I have left to complete is to design the air filter system and a modified coolant reservoir (to make room for the air filter), and the final dyno pulls to get the before-and-after numbers.
As long as I am finishing this kit, I would like it to fit both the SLK 320 and the Chrysler Crossfire to broaden the possible market for this kit.
So... what I am looking for on this forum is a loaner car. Is there a member who would like his Chrysler Crossfire supercharged, and wouldn't mind being without it for about 60 days? In return for being the guinea pig for me to model parts on, he would receive an installed supercharger kit with zero labor and a discount on the parts.
Saying it again differently: the person that loans me their Crossfire will have the ability to buy the kit at less than what it will retail for, and there will be no charge for labor to install it. I will just leave it on the car when it drives away.
If you have questions, please ask. Happy to answer.
I hope our lengthy string of successful supercharger kits gives you confidence that we know what we are doing. I insist that our kits look clean and have a professional appearance.
Photos below show some of the work completed on the SLK, NOT the finished kit.
Thank you for your interest!
