The supercharger itself is tucked away underneath all the pipework, the only picture I have showing it was taken when we were sorting out the mountings.

Jason's car is a phase 2R so it is running Riley 1.5 all round. The front has been modified (I think) to run coil overs, and the rear radius arms have had our rose joint conversion fitted. Apart from ...
