I would focus on putting a bigger blower on personally.. more potential, the M62 can only flow so much, and can only go so small on the pulley.

A bigger blower would be alot more work. Different belt paths would require going around a motor mount not designed for this purpose, custom brackets, etc. I've already looked into the feasability.

To make it worse (the icing on the cake) you would need a custom Lower Intake Manifold. Think about the logistics of that one.

For an intake for a different blower, do this. Two sets of holes in a plate. One set with counterbores in the pattern of the LIM, the other set threaded in the pattern of the other blower offset so that the SC outlet and the LIM inlet line up. Make the plate into an intercooler. Tada. Sounds easy right?

Sounds good, but in reality, when you look at the outlet location on the M62 and the M90, you've got a problem with the nosedrive 'reach'. The outlet of the M90 must line up with the stock LIM hole for your idea to work. Now how do you get a belt on? They make different lengths of nosedrives, but they're expensive, and getting JUST the right length is a trick, if even possible. Now we're into at least $2500, not including the adapter plate. This is a $4000 upgrade by the time you're done.

Sell the 93 and spend the extra money on the S2 if you're going that far.

Ha.....Easy? That would be a machine shops nightmare if you ask me......Not to flame or anything.....but there is A LOT of work involved into something like that

The whole prob. with throwing a M90 on a S1 is the diameter of the M90 and how the injectors are angled into the LIM. This is also the problem with making a thick IC for an S1. It is possible but for the cost it would be inpractical.

eventually you are going to be looking at an M90 with a custom snout.
Nope, M90 rotors are a bigger diameter then M62'*. So sorry your not going to see a M62 Hybrid. As for the rotors two companies make supercharger kits based off the eaton M62 that use different rotors other then the '94-'95 teflon coated ones. So I'd be looking at a M62 with lets say Gen 4 rotors. Only problem is that to get the rotors you would have to buy a whole supercharger kit for over 4G'*.

Ryan is good friends with a few people at performance coating shop that have said there are coatings that they have used on positive displacement blowers that are better then teflon to inprove efficence. Ryan actually got a whole RC car motor coated all the way down to a ceramic coated header from them.
