::blows off dust:: cough cough...wooo its been a while since ive updated this. Boy Christmas drains yer time and funds pretty dang quick. Well its the slow season of year at my job so I finally have a bit more time to work with this (and some extra Cristmas cashola as well) SOOOO I found out there is only 2 guys locally that can really do custom CNC machining, and neither one wants to do it (so I dont want them too!!) I have talked to a few friends and they told me they take like 2 months to do a simple driveshaft on a lathe so WTF do I want them doing my stuff for? I have decided to risk doing the job myself, so I found a billet of aluminum on Ebay and purchased it today. I also purchased a new set of gaskets (2 I.M. gaskets ) and some tools that can cut and shape the metal. I spent about 400 bucks on a scroll saw drill press and bench grinder, and 80 for the aluminium plate. SOOO I will be cutting these (VERY CAREFULLY) with my scroll saw drilling the holes (VERY CAREFULLY) with my drill press and all other metal fab I can do at work. This intercooler thing will be sucessfully in my car and complete by the end of February guaranteed (come hell or high water) Whether there are still anyone interested of not, I will probably have the only one. (Maby DrJay will chip and and get one!!!) New pulleys already in my garage (2.2") so now I just gotta get off my lazy butt and "get er dun"

If anyone is still interested give me a holla!

What are you doing about the fuel rail?

more than likely a hack job and some braided hose, but im thinking about contacting Zooomer and seeing if his SER2 fuel injector spacers might work.

Your core is going to have to have a lot of machining if you use the stock fuel rail and it still might not even be possible. If you look at your fuel rail and injectors they are at an angle so they actually sits over the side of the supercharger.

keep in mind my design is 1.5" thick and so will space the SC 1.5" higher....although you are correct about the curvature of the fuel rails I can cut them low enough to the point when I will have plenty o clearance for the SC. There is already a small amount of space in there from the factory so I just need to add a little more....maby ill take a pict of my fuel rail on top of my SC with the plate sitting in after I get the plate in. that should give a good idea how much space will be needed. Also I dont know if there is much of a connection compatability issue with SER1 and SER2 L67 fuel injectors, if there isnt an issue there then one can get a FI spacer set from ZZP for like 250 bucks.

An additional $250 just drove the IC cost way up. What about the alternator bracket that'* attached to the nosedrive that is about to rise 1.5"? Have you worked out a solution for that?

thats just a matter of making a bracket....and the 250 is optional....as it is for the SER2 guys doing IC'* some hack the rails and put in hoses and some use new fuel logs or spacers......its not rocket science just fabrication.

no prob, just tryin to make it easier to do a "bolt on" SER1 with a bunch of horsepower.

BTW how did the oiling situation come out on yer rockers, I still havent gotten mine put in yet, but when I looked at them it looked as if they should oil exactly like the facory ones through the pushrod holes.

Cool. When you get that bracket figured out, post some drawings or pics. That'* actually a touchy part to the equation, so we don't eat belts.
