That is a M112, we have a M122 (from GT500) in stock now, will be on a 660 block this winter......want to do a comparison with a compound system. The Aussi's use superchargers a lot more frequently than we do.

Could not resist taking/posting pics.....:D

The block is a 660 casting filled with cement to the bottom of the water pump holes.....

Sorry about the picture quality, but Jeff crushed our other camera (sat on it.....LMAO), and still not getting good pics with this one....

I had looked at a Ford 3.8 supercharger the other day and thought..."that would be cool on the 6.2"!
Boost right out of the hole, no drive pressures.....:)

I have not worked my way up to understanding turbos yet. The drive pressure is what causes the blow off valve to release pressure?

The drive pressure is the exhaust gas pressure between the cylinder and the turbine wheel of the turbo. Usually it is measured in the exhaust manifold, and it is almost always higher than the air pressure that the turbo is pushing into the intake. This can be a cause of unnecessary stresses on the engine and promote higher exhaust gas temperatures. Terminology we like here is "things go boom"......."again"....LOL.

We looked at the Procharger kits, but like the Bullet and Marinediesel kits, not readily available used, and price of new was (is) too high for doing a test with. We also discussed trying to just use a compressor and re-gear it ourselves to spin fast enough to push the air needed to feed our motor. The M-122 should be able to be installed (including purchase) for under $2000.

IMO, the M90, is just a tad too small (considered two), with the M112 being adequate for our purposes, but any charger when loaded to its top end will begin to create extra heat and the power gains will begin to drop off.

We were fortunate to have stumbled (we do a lot of research....LOL) on a new take-off from a Mustang GT500, when getting the Shelby upgrades. We experienced something similar in 2009, when we bought our two VGT 351 turbo's, less than a year later, they had doubled in price.....:eek:.
