As most of you know, I've worked over a couple SC'* for myself. One is currently running on the Zilla, and that one replaced my first, which is now running on driverjohn'* SSEi.
This winter, I'm taking on a few big tasks. Among them, another IMPROVED Gen3 M62 for the Zilla, which will turn it into a hybrid of the GenV. How am I doing this?
I'm learning from a Gen3 M90 (harofreak/Andrew) and a Gen5 M90 (2000Silverbullet/Paul)
These other two Superchargers will be mildly ported and polished for gauranteed gain, with zero risk. The difference between them is that Paul'* will be running with no EGR, so it opens an opportunity to improve his flow in the inlet by filling the port for the EGR.
Follow along with me as these 3 superchargers transform over the next couple weeks.
Work area #1. This is the 'prep' or 'clean' area. Dining room table. Polishing will happen in the garage:
In this pic, you can see the GenV case on the table with the Gen3 M90 (haro) nosedrive on it.
This is what happens when someone strips a nosedrive plug on an M62:
Then the aftermath from using a hammer and centerpunch to work the plug out:
And off to the Barf Bucket to drain:
That about wraps up the M62 Gen3 for now. More on that later.
Harofreak'* Gen3 M90 is an interesting case. It looks like a manufacturing defect:
After casting, Eaton bores the inlet. This isn't an opening after the casting process.
They 'missed'. This will be fixed before Andrew sees his supercharger again. This is
Paul'* GenV is being worked over as well. I filled the EGR port, and while that dries, it gives me the chance to get the two Gen3'* to the same point (clean and ready to port).
(Paul, your needle bearings are sealed off in all pics from here on).
The plug patch applied so the epoxy filler stays put:
Inside view before filling (this EGR port is tapered towards the inlet of the SC, so the plug
will naturally stay where it should):
Magic sauce diaper:
All three are moving quickly at this point. Keep tabs on me, and ask questions if you like.
