if the supercharger works and the car runs good, its worth every penny.

Many people here would die for that supercharger!

I have one. 300hp at the rear wheels. Bat out of hell! If it was closer I would buy it.

The kit is actually an old school Mosselman supercharger system. Sadly Mosselman is now defunct, but due to the massive cost of these kits brand new in the '80s and early '90s very few people could justify the cost of purchase, so "yes" they are very rare.

Forced induction is the way to go!

They work well but could definitely benefit from intercooling.

Is that the same kit that's on your car now, MagicBigDaddy?

If it was closer, I would buy it just to have my uncle reverse engineer the kit. He's an ex Westinghouse engineer who runs QC for a company that builds one off parts for aerospace prototypes. Would be cool to see what a limited run of these could be done for... there would be enough guys here that would buy them in a heart beat if priced correctly. Heck, I'd buy two or three myself.

Correct me if I am wrong, but this looks like the W126 oil cooler. A much better mounting position compared to the other I have seen mentioned here.

I know there's a few of us working on cams and fuel systems to squeeze out more horses. Why haven't turbochargers been looked at more heavily? Expense?

Mine is a one off copy of that system. Custom intake with a common U.S made blower. Plus a few other minor mods. Air cooled are the lowest cost. Bearings are critical on the air cooled versions.

I would love to have the casting for the hat.

You W126 people are lucky in that you have more room under the hood. Yes, I said "more room".

you should let people copy those parts, we can start our own run of supercharger kits!!!!!!!!

Pain in the ass i'd say. You'd need exhaust manifolds fabricated, then you'd have to find a place to wedge a pair of red hot snails, plumb oil pressure to them, then fabricate all the tubes to get the high pressure/hot air to an intercooler, then into the intake. Then depending on how much boost you can dial in, the stock CIS system can't provide the right amount of fuel to keep the mixture right at high rpm/boost levels.
A centrifugal supercharger like this is easy to add, smaller package. I wonder if it needs twin fuel pumps and bigger injectors? Probably just stock fuel delivery, I'm guessing.

I understand. I probably mixed up turbo and super chargers at one point. Thanks!

I know, and there's been a past thread or 2 on the same car. Some people just overlook or are selective on what they want to see;)
