I've been keeping a eye on this project. I am a big fan of e30 Bimmers, but I just could not afford to fix my front end, otherwise I would have one as a second car. Preferrably a 87+ 325is with a stick.

I prefer the 89+ but '87s are cheap.

Friends with machine shops FTW, he hooked me up nice.

Cool!

I hope my assumptions are right and that when you fire it up with the TB PRE blower it should run like butter.

If it does, this may respark my desires to blow my xb again ... Keep posting, lots are watching

Remember, take it easy and watch your boost gauge on the test drive. You can calculate all you want but it may boost far more than your expecting.

OH, if your TB has an idle air control in it, make sure not to block the passage with your adapters!!

I actually cut my supercharger in half to by-pass that and make more room.

how much space did you leave between the needle bearings and where you cut?
