Default Series I L67 Owners...50hp Bolt On!!!

Yeah...I'm sure. Just bolt it on for a 30-50hp gain.

I'd be interested to see where that actually ships from.

You are bidding on a new GM/EATON 3800 Series I supercharger, modified by Turbo Technology, for maximum performance and reliability.

WHICH series1? 92/93, or 94/95? MODIFIED? By a TURBO company?

-This supercharger has been completely ported and re-contoured for maximum flow.
Porting is minimal if not worthless. Eaton and Magnusson told me personally, and even ZZP agrees that it may do nothing.

-The rotors have been micro-polished to a chrome-like finish & then were cryogenically treated for durability.

Bad idea. The rotors are SMALLER now, and can compress less air.

-The inside of the supercharger housing has been completely micro polished to remove any machining defects & or imperfections. This also promotes flow.

See above, as this now DOUBLES the mismatch in compresson.

-The bearings were replaced with h/d units for longer life.

No such thing. There is only one supplier in the world for the needle bearings.

-The discharge side of supercharger has been completely reshaped & redesigned to flow air evenly to all cylinders.

BAD news. Floz tried this and screwed up numerous units.

-The discharge/base has also had a heavy duty girdle installed to reduce flex (which keeps rotors from hitting the inside of the supercharger housing at high rpm) this girdle also seals off the muffler holes (which will increase blower wine, but promotes flow).

Flex? LMFAO! I spin mine at 16000 rpm'*, and NEVER hit the casing with my rotors. If I did, I'd need a new hood.

-High Temp Cyramic Coating to keep it cool and looking great.

Looks like paint to me. Worst thing you can do to an Eaton SC. The paint they use allows heat to escape. Floz screwed this up on every unit they painted silver.

All the blue printing, porting, and polishing together reduces the air temp going into the engine because of less friction and turbulence, which = more horsepower. This supercharger was originally designed for 94-95 year vehicle and it is a 30-50 hp bolt on, but will work on other years with a few small modifications.

All BS. And he'* only sold 2 previous items? This guy bought a Floz SC, and regrets it. Sorry if you're a member, but we've had enough victims.

I'm not nor have I ever been known under the name FloZ.

I would never even tinker with a supercharger. I bought this from a racing company name Turbo-Technologies. They specialized in boosted applications of all kinds. They are no longer in business and were bought out by another company. I bought this item like 2 years ago. Its never been run.

If someone is located in Southeast Michigan, they are more than welcome to come see it.

I Agree that a 50 horsepower gain is out of bounds, I'm changing the description. I had no intention of misleading anyone. After looking into the limits of the M62 I realize that a 50 horsepower boost is far from out of reach.

It'* silver. You're hosed.

Send me your purchase information. Ebay unit? What was the sellers name? Tell me everything you remember (send me a PM, link below my reply here).

If there'* the slightest chance of it being a Floz Supercharger, you won't sell it here, which means you probably won't sell it.

Every claim in that Ebay auction is ridiculous. We don't blame you, that'* what was sold to you. But you probably won't sell it here.

Send it all to me. ALL the information. He may have bought it from Floz, or he may BE Floz.
