Supercharged Camira..

Craig and Adam\’s attempt at adding an SC12 to a JE Camira wagon

Reason for the JE Camira option..

Posted by superchargedcamira on June 20, 2006

Initially I thought of getting an old bunky of a Corolla and converting a carby engine to run the Delco management. We basically just wanted a cheap car to test all this on. We opted out of converting a carby car as we thought it might be too much of a steep learning curve and we wanted to stay interested in the project and not put it in the “too hard basket” after a few weeks. So we decided on just getting the last Camira released (the JE model) and going from there. We had no intentions of some grand car with pearl paint and 18s. We wanted something simple and cheap and seeing as the Camira comes with that ECU we thought it would do fine. Seeing as we are both programmers, the whole thing was more of an exercise in re-mapping the ECU rather than mechanically engineering things here and there (which we still wont be immune to). But we figured we’d try and make it as simple as we could for ourselves initially. I did a bit of research and found the JE Camira wasn’t actually that bad a car and many individual reports from some owners having quite good runs out of theirs.
