Default Giving up

We thought these would be useful, but after all the work creating a process to get a good part, there have been 0 sales. Mostly questions about "how much hp will I get?" and "does it bolt on to my Mustang?" Thinking of giving up on these adapters, going to do a ebay clearance sale and drop the whole idea...

Wait, please no! It'* just hard to get the superchargers working right. Most people simply can't bolt on superchargers because both of engine bay space and tuning limits. I'd say also that advertising may not have been as strong so far as it should have been.

Contact racing shops like Jegs and others, have a website with videos of cars running these, contact race shops with tuning abilities and the tooling to add superchargers to cars, etc.

I attended Beatersville 2012 and 2013:
Beatersville Car and Bike Show
It'* an event full of crazy car mods like supercharged longblock V8s in tiny one-seaters without floor boards. The people who shove their cars into this event surely would enjoy having access to reliable superchargers and a way to shove them on. Plus, supercharger relocation can be made to look pretty awesome (as these cars do).

Other possible setbacks are that there are newer and different superchargers that may be more desirable for which you haven't made adapters. No pressure.

Uh yea, how come no fanfare here on the forum about these adapters? This is the first update I've seen in awhile!

Default One Leftover Adapter

I don't work for that company anymore, but I've got one leftover M90 adapter and blower sitting on the shelf. I was saving it for a 4.0L jeep project, but I think I'm going to go diesel on that vehicle. If anyone wants it, I'm asking $450 for the blower and adapter, shoot me an offer on just the adapter if you already have a blower.
