That would be a Gen3 M62 Supercharger. But you should know that.

BTW, that may be a Floz, but I cannot confirm that.

Not a Gen 2. That'* a Gen3. And it'* a paperweight (commonly referred to as FLOZ).

Take the W out and search on FLOZ. There'* probably 100 topics.

No, it'* scrap. He had a bad reputation for modifying them and leaving debris in them, stripping coating, selling unrebuilt as rebuilt, and using sub-standard parts after his suppliers got wind of what he was up to, and cut him off.

I can't tell it'* modified.

I can tell you with 95% certainty it'* a FLOZ rebuild. He painted them all silver for a couple years.

got you....i just read the topics on Johns car....and about the acting The floz guy did on this forum...its a shame. I'd really like to believe it'* usable...cuz it looks pretty decent and the snout feels nice and tight....i have no experience with these superchargers so oh well..guess i'm out 75 bucks....better than putting together a motor...dropping it in and having the thing blow up on me..lol. Any possiblility i could send it to a gearhead and have it looked over?

I don't see proof of Flozing. Painted, yes. But the bolts are not painted, the outlet is untouched, the rotors look unmolested...

I don't know. What I would do with it is take the nose drive off and spin the pulley. If there is absolutly no catching in rotation or play in the shaft, I'd be tempted to leave it as is. But replace the needle bearings in the case because you have no idea how long they've been there and put a new coupler in it. The Floz guy once told me he takes the rotor coating off all the units he worked on. While you've got it apart, clean a spot on the rotors with ...Bill, help me out here... something. If it'* grey, they should be alright (and possibly free of any flozing at all). If it'* bear aluminum under the carbon build up, I would do a full rebuild before I took it anywhere near my car, including a set of recoated or otherwise properly coated rotors.

I could look it over very well. Shipping here and back might be a little steep for weight alone, though. Your choice.

i don't doubt bill but it feels so nice.i like whtat j wikoff said..and id have every intention of rebuilding it...it'* have to get a motor anyway...i just scrapped away with my finger nail....under the buildup on the rotors is a dark pewter color, if that helps. maybe there is a chance that this is one he came across with nothing wrong with it...painted it and resold it for double?
