  • Eaton Clutched M62 Bolt On Supercharger Kit "Almost Fruition"

    Here are some PICS of the SC Kit I'm working on, plumbing is almost done, Thanks to everyone for their patience in this process.

    The Green Car Drives Again!

    Nestled snuggly under the alternator, almost looks OE

    blurred shot, but nice clearance on radiator

    Shot #1 of outlet piping This will be an aluminum elbow for cost constraints, silicon 90's are like $60 each.

    Shot #2 of outlet plumbing, straight up into a "hotshot or equivalent" intake

    intake box redesign, the plumbing will run side by side and air filter will reside under battery, so no worries about water ingestion

    stainless steel headers my ass


    At this point I have actually driven the car under boost, and it feels great, the car pulls very nicely, and it really opens up above 4K.

    I am looking into a microswitch to put in the kit for WOT only operation, but the car doesn't like the switch from no boost to boost......so it might be better to wire this thing to operate all the time in run, and offer a BOV within the package.

                .......................

                Don't take it the wrong way, but I don't think I'm going to keep her.

                If she does live on, it will not be in this state......

                I might have to go LUNDBERG On her.....

                    2.5" piping, no problems on clearance,

                    Even with my car, lowered with coil overs

                      those SS headers look like they have been sittin around in a tub of water!

                      even SS can get a little bit of rust.. you have to clean it with some steelwool double 00

                        Nice for not having to mod the X member, but having the pipe being the lowest point on the car will cause it to scrape. I had my old turbo piping running the same way. It was OK for the entire year, you just have to be constantly aware of it. Not much more different than say a Lip or a body kit.

                        One thing you might want to consider travis is some form of safety wire for that pipe. If for whatever that pipe blows off (like if u hit it on a parking curb earlier in the day and then go boost) it will impact the ground and become a vacuum for dirt. Perhaps even a little bracket that attaches somewhere on the lower frame.
                        I believe in moderation and that includes moderation.

                          Very nice design Travis. Looks to be about the same thing Nick (MPIF) was doing on one of his previous setups.

                            wow that looks unbelievably simple amazing work almost makes me want to consider supercharging instead of turbo hmmmm

                            only concern is my crossmember is already so low, I cant even fit a jack under it when the car is down, so I wonder how 2.5 inch pipe would fit in.

                            Also I know nothing about superchargers, do those require an oiling setup like turbo feed and drain? if so looks like drain would be kind of iffy being almost as low as the pan but i dont know, really.
