Well, this project has changed slightly. Might as well upgrade from the m90 whilst I am at it.

Who wants to play guess the donor car?

Yup robo got it. 1999 Jaguar XKR. M112 supercharger and two honking huge intercoolers. And yes, its an Eaton blower.

The ford m90 can go on something else. I'm sure I'll find something that "needs" a supercharger on it.

The main reason I got it is that it's intercooler tank configuration is pretty much exactly what I was going to fabricate. I wouldn't have been able to get the raw IC cores for the price of everything here. Plus its already got the water tanks and such ready to go. Might as well not reinvent the wheel.

Since I was resigned to custom making a LIM, or heavily modifying one so the SC is more recessed, Its not much different to make it so the m112 fits as opposed to the m90. This one is going to be close though. I might have to cowl it if it sticks up too high. Also the TB is rotated and points straight up, which I think I'm going to have integrate with a filter and hood exit/scoop. No sense in trying to bring it back to the CAI. I might also relocate the alternator to the air conditioner compressor spot. Partly for room up top, and partly to make the blower and tanks the focus when looking at the engine. The blower will get new bearings, coupler, and the normal porting. And its going to need a pretty big pulley at first. I did some mocking up while doing some engine work last weekend and its looking really promising. Once the car is together, this might just become a front burner project.

Changed 'slightly', ha-haha. That is quite the bad-ass set-up, Andrew. I like how well it seems to fit on top of the engine. "V8" is a nice touch, lol. 90% of people would probably assume it is, without counting plug wires or exhaust outlets.

Am I seeing it right? The ICs are staged before the blower compresses the air charge?

The V8 will get ground off when I polish everything. The blower fires "up", then the air charge is split into the two IC cores, and then down into the intake runners. Since there are 4 runners on each side and they are sized for a 4 liter engine(4 liters divided by 8 runners = smaller area each runner than I need), I'll probably run them into a small common plenum on each side, and then into 6 runners for the engine. Its gonna be fun!

That's freakin' awesome. I should have known they'd have tried something ingenious like that. Can we call this the "Gen VI" blower? Or maybe the M112JAG mod.

Yeah, only thing is its a Gen 4 m112. But considering those intercooler tanks were good enough for the V8 running its engine coolant through it, it should blow pretty cold in a closed loop system. I'm hoping for a nice cold air charge with minimal parasitic drag. I like M112JAG mod though!

I'm diggin that! twisted
Does the blower discharge out the top like the ford m90? If so, how does it pass into the lower intake.

smile Top discharge, the inlet is actually where I have a stock TB sitting in the pics. I'll prob use a N* TB since its lower profile and matches the inlet perfectly. The boost dump hoses looks cool, to dump in before each IC core.

No updates really on the m112 front. Spent a bunch of time doing Z-type's blower, and now I'm focusing on getting together everything I need to rebuild the low KM spare engine I have. Add to that I need to do a custom output plate for a GenV SC on the wife's 98, and do 1.9 rockers on it as well, and mock up modifying S2 headers on the S1 engine(on a stand). The m112 is still sitting on the way back burner here.
