    Default Supercharged DS

    I found these today, from a few years ago, for anyone looking to uprate, a little window...... An extra 25hp on tap! Interior gives away it's location if the number plate didn't. I know they manufacture supercharges in Melbourne..... Not sure for how much longer, can they survive this government, hell bent on crushing manufacturing, is anyones guess.

    That's the period DS supercharger isn't it ?? It's bloody enormous. I can't help but feel a small modern supercharger would work hugely better again There's a black DS with one fitted that's been on aussiefrogs recently.

    Very embarassing - I forgot to photograph under the bonnet. Much smaller supercharger than the one Shane has observed as being huge.

    Here's the car anyway!

    Cheers

    I know this car in the first post, it is Peet Rossouw's car here from south africa. The orinigal owner who did the conversion was an aeronautical engineer he passed away 2 months ago.

    I had the privelage to have a spin in this ds with a supercharger, she moves quite a bit! The previous owner bought this supercharger unit from citroen France. This car is still going strong!! The current owner received all the invoices that stat this supercharger comes from citroen in France..

    Cheers

    Not to hijack the thread, but I need a set of those body side moldings. I have some crummy ones. I need nice ones for the doors and front fenders only.

    Pretty cool car IMO.

    I can't find the thread, it must have been lost in the crash. Was it UFO that posted it It used a chopped down suspension cylinder as a blow off valve etc...

    UFO ?

    My first iD was supercharged. It was fitted with an Arnott blower and carby by the dealer at Kingston on Thames.

    I used to hear stories back in the good ol' days of a supercharged safari that used to tow a race car across the country (I think it was a D rally car)
    I heard talk about them cruising across to Perth at 160kph with all the gear and the rally car on the trailer.
    Don't know who or what happened to it, just one of those stories you hear about.

    About 20 years later I know someone who bought an old battered rally car that was a D special with 2.3 litre engine and close ratio 5 speed box. They were told it used to be part of some kind of round Australia rally team
