As many of you know, I started my heat research with regards to the M62 Back in August of 2002. This was nearly 2 years ago. Many conversations with Eaton, Magnusson, Pulley Boys, ADTR, Domestic Performance, members here, and tons of time on the internet and under my hood. Applying my own knowledge of physics with known constants and research.
My conclusions were reached about a year ago. They were:
1. Seperate (heat isolate) the bottom of the SC from the lower intake.
2. Seperate the coolant flow from the engine so that it isn't common to the SC/TB.
3. Provide a seperate radiator and coolant path dedicated to the SC/TB.
This would be accomplished by a 1" aluminum or phenolic spacer between the base of the SC and the lower intake. The plate would have an ECT bypass machined between the 2 coolant ports for the lower inake, and an opposing bypass in the upper face for the new path. The new coolant lines would be ported into the SC itself, and an electric pump would circulate the new path with ignition on.
Now for the big bomb........
I found THIS 3 months ago:
I take great comfort in the fact that I came to the same conclusions almost a year before they did. I suggest anyone with either the M62 or M90 read that link thoroghly. I can really relate to their work, as this is exactly what I do at work on an almost daily basis, including the 3D modelling. I have gone as far as preliminary design work on the spacer itself. I have the SC outlet gasket in 3D modelling already, which is really the basepoint for building the hardware. The only caveats are that the fuel rail may need to be extended, and you'd need 2 SC outlet gaskets, as well as a small motorcycle radiator and a 12v water pump.
I'm moving this down to Forced Induction, and making it sticky. This has become a VERY valuable topic.
Foghorn, I wish we lived closer. We could have alot of fun working on this. It would be invaluable to me to sit down, get drunk, and share what we've each researched.
