New Supercharger on the block

This may be better in this section.

I won't say NTDWM, more a sort of family connection.

Its been a while since i have been on here I didn't know there was an Mx5 section.

Well here are a few pics of what i have been up to

















Basically i fancied supercharging my Mx5 and couldn't find anything i was happy with, so i took the plunge and made it all from scratch.

Awesome work! Casting that can't have been cheap.

I'm about to try to fit an M62 into this bay:



- think I might be putting it in place of the plenum!

That looks like fun. There is loads of room (sort of) on the mx5 but i still managed to fill it..

The castings were not cheap, i made the original prototypes but i sill had to have the tools made for casting. hopefully i will get some cash back by selling a few.

This looks like a class act. I am definitely in the market. Will be checking out ebay/facebook at once.

Just been out in the car. Now I'm not easily impressed but this did it for me.

Acceleration from 50 in 4th was rapid, but once we got to a suitable stretch of road
a 0 to 75 (ran out of road) was mind blowing.

For those building an MX5 Seven this has got to be a consideration.
