Nice work! I think that would be a nice combo with my P & P M62 that is sitting in the trunk. So the real question here is when are you going to do mine? I don't want to be stock forever!

P/P an M62? That'* not going to be good for much more than 1-2 hp at best. There are differing opinions on it, but Eaton and Magnusson both back that up, and I have yet to see dyno or flow numbers to show that it'* worth the effort.

You got pics showing what approach you made with it?

And I've gotten about 6 too many requests for TB porting......

haha mine doesn't have that. Looks awesome, Bill. I know the feeling about worrying about ******* something up.. if it makes you feel better, I feel like that everytime I pick up my rotary tool with my heads.

I talked to Zoomer about this subject and he said that Eaton said the same thing to him. Zoom has a "SC dyno" and I'm sure that he has done flow tests and temp test on ported vs. stock. Zoom still swares by them after all of that and almost everyone else in the eaton - roots blower community also.

I didn't do the P&P myself, I sent it out to a shop that does P&P for tons of M112'* on Cobra'* and such. Besides P&P and filling in a few holes, they also did a few things to the outlet to stiffen up the case itself because of the high RPM.

All I have is the case and the snout. The vains are out getting a special coating on them as we speek and soon the case and snout are getting sent out to get a nice coating also. Pics will follow after whole thing is together and a nice 1/4 pass is established.

Other then that, I don't want to take over your topic so if anyone has any more ?'* just PM or IM me.

The TB doesn't have that part at either end of it. The air just has to go around it, slowing it down and jumbling it around.
im gonna have to disagree with you on this. The TB (and anything else) will only flow as much as its smallest part. If you were to cut the TB up into cross sections and find out where that is you could find the max air he is drawing in. He effectivly increased the size of his TB. I think he will find a 5-10hp difference across the ENTIRE RPM band. Ill bet $5 on it.

Not until the performance is proven and the project debugged. Damemorder and I both have these now. Until then, this is an 'I dunno'.

Will it push me outside the range of my MAF detectability causing me to have to use an AFC controller? I hope not.

Too many unknowns for the time being.
