MP122, MP1900 & MP2300 Supercharger Kits.
22nd April, 2009


MP2300
The MP2300 Supercharger Kit is our largest, premium roots type supercharger kit for all 'LS' Engine V8 Commodores.

Magna Charger’s new MP2300 (140 cubic in) supercharger technology is the same used for the new LS9 Corvette. The four-lobe rotor design features a high-twist 160º helix that has improved efficiency (less power to drive), cooler discharge temperatures and is much quieter. Additional efficiency is the result of the unique bypass valve that reduces parasitic losses during normal driving. The Magna Charger also interfaces seamlessly with the GM Active Fuel Management system that cuts the engine to four cylinders at light throttle.

Systems come complete with a new aluminium intake manifold, integral water-to-air intercooler, and all necessary brackets, connectors, hardware and any needed specialized tools. The supercharger has a self-contained lubrication system that is maintenance-free. A full instruction manual with colour photos makes the step-by-step installation process easy to follow.

MP1900
The potential for real Super Car performance is as easy as bolting on a new MP1900 supercharger. This kit is available for all 'LS' Engine V8 Commodores.

The MP1900 (115 cubic in) supercharger uses the same technology as the MP2300. The Supercharger Kit provides a smaller displacement at a lower price point. This is a comprehensive kit as per the MP2300 supercharger kit.

MP122
Provides excellent value for money. Suitable for VT-VY LS-1 & VZ-VE HSV LS-2.

Systems come complete with a new aluminium intake manifold, integral water-to-air intercooler, and all necessary brackets, connectors, hardware and any needed specialized tools. The supercharger has a self-contained lubrication system that is maintenance-free. A full instruction manual with colour photos makes the step-by-step installation process easy to follow.

MP112
Available to suit VT-VZ LS-1 & HSV LS-2 Powered Vehicles, the MP112 Supercharger Kit is an entry level kit designed for low boost applications. This is a complete supercharger kit with water to air intercooler. You won’t find an Intercooled Eaton supercharger kit at a lower price for your LS-2.

Product Applications
VT-VY 5.7 Litre V8 (MP112, MP122, MP1900 and MP2300)
VZ LS-1 5.7L (MP112, MP1900 and MP2300)

CAPA Supercharged Sportwagon featured in February Motor Magazine
27th February, 2009

A recent comparison of Aussie Tuners, CSV (Equipped with CAPA’s VE Supercharger Kit), Walkinshaw Performance and Herrod Motorsport revealed some interesting results. Even though the Vortech Kit was 70kW down on WP’s kit, it was .1 of a second faster over 0-100km/h (5.0 vs 5.1 seconds) and the Quarter Mile (13.1 vs 13.2 seconds). The CAPA Supercharger kit was also cost less! Imagine if they tested our 500kW kit.

What Motor had to say:

“More consistent than the other two on the less-than-perfect surface, reeling off low-13s time and again. The Walky, meanwhile, only scored the one low-13 from a fluky launch, after a series of mid-13 runs where it just flat-out refused to hook up.”

“The big suprise was that the CSV Sportwagon was the quickest. And since it’s probably a full 70kW down on the Walky, the result raised more than a few eyebrows.”

“WP (Walkinshaw Performance) demands extra attention and ($36K) over CSV. Couldn’t nail the times, though.”

CAPA At the Clipsal 500

Check out FSF's Video of CAPA's Supercharged VE Ute Making 926 Horsepower at the Wheels at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, 2008. Note: Internet Explorer users, you may need to allow blocked content.


CAPA At the Clipsal 500
29th February, 2008

As sponsors of the KPM Holden vs Ford National Dyno Shootout, we were asked to bring our VE SS Ute for demonstration purposes throughout the event. We jumped at the chance to run the car again and on Friday, with 3 runs under our belt, we made 926.4HP at the Wheels. Other Cars with CAPA Supercharger Kits were also entered into the Dyno Competition. With vehicles producing over 325kW.

The CAPA VE Ute created a lot of attention over the weekend. We will be back to top the 1000hp mark at an upcoming event.

The CAPA Stunt Team was also out in force, performing stunts between races

A special thankyou to Dom, Peter and the Boys from Dyno Dynamics for looking after us and the car over the weekend.



























 
CAPA VE Ute Unveiled at Summernats 21
10th January, 2008

We started building our new project car, a VE SS Ute 3 weeks before Summernats. There were many late nights spent building an Engine, Strengthening the Driveline and Developing the Supercharger kit to where it is now.

The engine was stroked to 409 cubic inches, with a one off crank, rods and pistons installed to ensure the engine could withstand over 20psi of boost at 7200rpm. A Custom Camshaft and Ported Big Valve Heads were also used in the build. A custom supercharger kit was developed to allow a V7 YSi Supercharger to be driven off the crank with a 50mm gilmer pulley system. The supercharger kit install includes larger 3.5" pipework and a Custom 200mm thick intercooler with Mondo Bypass Valve mounted behind the front bumper. Exhaust Gasses leave the engine via CAPA 1 7/8" Tri-Y Extractors and a Twin 3" Exhaust.

With all the extra power up front, the drivetrain and brakes had to be upgraded accordingly, with a built T-56 gearbox, Twin Plate Clutch and Full Spool 3.45" installed. Touring Car inspired brakes help bring the Ute to a halt, with 365mm 6 Piston Front and 320mm 4 Piston Rear Brakes sitting behind 22" wheels wrapped in 245mm and 265mm wide rubber. The car sits lower to the ground using Bilstien Coil-overs specifically set up for this ute.

Additional fuel is supplied by an alloy fuel tank, 3 bosch motorsport pumps and a Vortech Super FMU.

We entered our ute in the Horsepower Heroes dyno competition, and it made 856.6 Horsepower at the wheels. The Ute is capable of producing more power, but we had some unfortunate issues with the Clutch slipping. We will be working with Xtreme to build a more powerful clutch before we run the ute up again, which should see the Ute produce over 1000 Horsepower at the wheels. We also took home the Top Super Tech Trophy, which was awarded to the best Street Car which features New Technology and High Levels of Innovation.
