Default using the supercharger as a stove

how hot is a M62? i know it runs fairly hot after a few wot runs, but how hot at idle?


mine seems too hot to hold my hand on so i am guessing like 140 perhaps at


reason I ask is that I want to make pancake on top of it or fry some eggs.

I am curious why does the supercharger get so hot on these cars?? The nose of the supercharger is so hot somethimes that it will actually burn your fingers. Why is that part of the supercharger so hot?

Check your nosedrive oil level, and consider changing it (procedure in Techinfo) if you haven't ever done it before.

If the oil is ok, don't worry about it. It'* constantly spinning, creating heat from friction, absorbing heat from the LIM, and from compressing air.

If you want a point of comparison, take the temperature. We can compare yours to some of ours.
