Sorry now sold
First and most important thing is your supercharger. Has it been serviced within the last few years? If not, get that done (or do it yourself). They're prone to failure when not serviced and can basically destroy itself if it fails seriously.

You can get your charger ported to flow more air whilst being serviced.

You can put a smaller pulley on the charger to make it spin up faster so you have more boost, sooner.

You can also change the belt type that's used to driver the charger. The standard set up is twin vee belts. You can get 7pk ribbed belt conversions or (my preference) a toothed belt (cambelt) that reduces or removes belt slip, where the belt slackens off and doesn't drive the charger properly (same as a slack "fan belt" squeeling on the alternator/power steering on other cars).

I'd stick a cone filter on there (don't put a foam filter in there, it can degrade and fibres get into the charger). The performance gain is debatable but it sounds better and feels more responsive to me.

I'd do all that/ a combination of that and it'll be quite a lot more responsive and pokey.

Injectors run out of puff circa 160bhp, can't say I remember many people praising the use of a cam but could be wrong. Have a search on here, I think they only tend to be fitted when the car is being mapped as it'll alter timing and so on.

Exhaust manifold is another popular mod. I've been looking for about a year and can't find any, don't get the cheap shit eBay ones, they don't fit and the one by fk (search my username, I think I reviewed one on here) and so on is awful and will break before long. I had one and it was utter dogshit.

Cheers for the reply mate going to have a good look when I get a minute. But like you say I carnt see anything from the top. Will have to have a look from the side through wheel arch and do as you said Mark it then transfer up the pully.
I'm just in the process of finding a blue temp sensor for it as I think that is faulty as well tried a spurious one but that is wors then the one that was in it originally  cheers for the help mate
