BigBad..

Your car has the 92/93 supercharger on it. That is an M62 Gen 2.

The fins tell it all, you don't have a hybrid. No "hybrids" were ever produced. The mechanics would have done what they had to in order to get the motor working with the least effort possible for it to work correctly.

Look up your repair ticket.
Under gaskets, Lower intake, supercharger to lower intake and throttle body will be among the listing. If they had not changed the top end over to your 93 part, those gaskets would not be there.

Bigbad. As the other Bill stated above, if it looks like the one on the left, it'* a Gen2 92/93 supercharger as it should be. Period. End of story.

If you'd like to settle this once and for all, take pics of them and host them on www.photobucket.com then post the pics here.

Yes, Bill boost is correct, I did look at the ticket and they did replace the lower intake, all gaskets and even the TB with all sensors attached and thats why it cost me over 1200 dollars including labor which explains why mine has epoxy coated rotors. Thank you and everyone for all explanatory information and pics to guide me to what I need and also in ordering the correct intake manifold gasket and TB gasket to do my gasket replacements. One more question, sorry to be a pain in the arsh are the rotors for 92/93 and 94/95 interchangable to each other?

Yes they are. How do you know you have epoxy coated rotors?

. It looks like the rotors are black and the edges of the rotors are shiny silver almost chrome like, it doesnt look like carbon build up because the edges of the rotors are like a perfect line.

The epoxy is grey. I've seen both types and they both end up pretty dark.

okay and so the 92/93 and the 94/95 rotors can interchange between the 2 with the same cases with no rear bearing problems or height differences internally. Man ya all been very great in giving out information and directing us in the right direction. thank ya for all the troubles :

whoa....the I dont believe that you can change the rotors from year to year....the 92-93 DONT HAVE coated rotors, never did never will....the 94-95 DO have the coated rotors

the size of the case is different and the coated rotors are larger i believe....they will not fit into the 92-93 case

the rotors are black becasue the EGR is routed thru the SC for combustion temps...because the EGR stove pipe basically has exhaust going thru to makes the SC black on the inside.....

you have 92-93 non coated rotors in a 92-93 SC

Pat just nailed it BigBad. ALL rotors are dark after use. You have carbon buildup on stock rotors. NOt epoxy coating.

Who has tried the gen 3 rotors in the gen 2 case? I thought they would fit because the coating is gone off the tips anyway after a short while.
