Problem with the EBay ones are that they could be close if not already having a coupler problem which will make his parent'* think that the */C'* are crap all the way around make him ditch the car....

Its funny how before something is done it is classified as "impossible". I asked about a swap of an M90 onto a Series one a year or two ago and i was told there is no way. Now that someone has done it, it is classified as "illogical" or too expensive, or too much boost (is that possible?!?!?!)

Go with an M112. Imagine how fun it would be? And for the "too much boost" simply slap a bigger pulley on it until you want that extra power which will be available with much less KR due to the lower intake temps obtained by the m112 producing the same boost as a m62 but at a lower speed (less friction = less heat = denser air + less K.R.)

Haha i like that idea about boxing the old one, and rebuildling it then buying rockers and everything... Hmmm i think im going to be getting rockers soon

After hanging out with Randman for a couple days...Nothing is impossible. Give the guy some parts, some fiberglass or a sewing machine and you've got a new interior.

I'm scared now that he'* got the donor car.....scared...I'll just make sure there 3 feet between us when I'm helping wrench on that thing.

Hey Randy...Torches don't need electricity....

Wait a minute what am I missing here....did someone do an M90 on a SER1??? WHen did this happen? I want pics!!!! .....I would say too expensive...nothing is impossible, if I wanted a turbo N* I could do it but I dont have the $10000 to do it, and if I did I doubt I would drop it into my $5000 car.....the lower prices and age/milage of these cars is whats killing the aftermarket, we have to get performance parts from friggin Austrailia ferrcrissake!!

The problem isn't pushing more air at this point, it'* using what you have. Say you have 2 GTP'* same milage etc. Both slap on an intake, 3.4, pcm, and the other supporting mods. One guy has ported heads and exhaust headers, while the other one runs PEMs.

THe guy with heads/headers will have lower boost, because he'* flowing better, and making more power. 3800 heads aren't really designed for performance, they're designed for streetability, reliability, and old people... j/k

M62 isn't holding pack performance, I just wanna see someone open up a series I flow wise... Cams are a big part of this too. Realistically there are 2 cammed series I cars. One was sold for a Jr. Dragster, and Dr. Jay has a mild one if i'm not mistaken.

No, you're not mistaken. Nobody has done this to the best of our knowledge, unless Matt knows something we don't? No, Matt. Nothing is IMPOSSIBLE. But the sheer effort and expense of putting an M90 on a Series 1 would be sheer stupidity, when you could buy an SSEi with the M90, at least 5 years newer AND have money left over for all the supporting mods.

It'* fun to dream, but dreaming in a realistic manner would be cool. And slamming people for pointing out the obvious won't get you anywhere. If you want to be the first to do this, be my guest. I know very good and well what would be required to do this, and it'* not worth it for what I could do with the money it would cost, despite the fact that I'm quite a fabricator.

The fact that neither of us have, even though we have the ability (and the opportunity to work on it TOGETHER if we want) shows that it'* not really one of the most rational things you'd want to try. You'd get more satisfaction out of burning your money in a campfire.
