      Mine is up and running. (starter fluid and new gas) Hooking up wide band over the week then will be dynoing soon.

      sweet ... mine.. well.. more parts arrived in my apt.. new needle bearings for the m90.. new alternator & WP pulley for the engine.. block will be going to the machine shop this weekend *i hope*.. barring any other unforseen difficulties

      now, just need a fuel rail, maybe some new injectors... and some elbow grease & time...

      so far, the only charts that have been posted (that i've seen) were the old joezx6 kit ones w/the m62, and mine from last spring (i htink they're referenced in this thread.. maybe not), with an m90 & a poor setup

      I am working on finding a good shop to dyno. I am booking 2 1/2 hours for both my eaton and Vortech VR Looking like 2-3weeks MAX and I will have #'s up here.

      And in case it ever wants to blow up I am prepared with something else.

      just put the biggest snail you can fit (cut out the hood) on and worry about it later,plumb that big mama into the eaton inlet mang.

      who cares if the air filter is on top of the roof

      i wouldnt hold my breath... was just looking on ebay - some of those M90's have well over 100K on them.

      Here's a long awaited twincharged dyno plot

      Compare that plot to this one, when there was no m45 in series.
      Peak boost came in about 600-800 rpm sooner and peak power and torque are about the same with similar amounts of boost (peak at 17-18psi and degrading to roughly 15psi by the end of both pulls). It only partially shows the radical improvement in response under all normal driving conditions. We also threw a set of 440cc injectors in there to keep them from going static just before 6k as below.

      Man, your set up looks so similar to mine it's not funny, except that I didn't have to cut the G charger bracket and that my air intake is in the same place as the stock airbox was (I'm NOT using the stock airbox, but a mandrel bent pipe and a P flow).

      Beautiful work BTW. If you're ever in TN look me up, we'll compare notes....

      I just saw the PSI on those dynos... I was expecting a lil closer to 200WHP..

      No pics yet. A buddy of mine is wanting to throw one of my kits onto is 9A 16v, and I've already done the prelim research to do it. Not going to be hard at all, and the best part is that the alternator gets to stay in the front of the motor, not having to relocate it will be sweet indeed....

      No pics yet, I've actually got the set up out of the car making some fine tweaks (actually I'm reworking another fan shroud, just didn't like the old one). It's gotta be GQ or not at all. Once it's perfect, I'll be totally satisfied. The production kit will be easy, but this has been hard...

      Are you using the 2nd Gen M90? I came into work last weekend and made a special pulley for mine (actually 3 pulleys, 2x of the 3.3's, and 1x of my own design, a 3.55, to slow things down a bit). I had to use the CNC lathe at my work because of the serp profile, because we don't have a tracer on the manual lathe. Plus it's easier on a CNC anyways.

      All I'm waiting on now is a broach for the keyway I ordered, and the pulleys will be totally complete, and I hope that comes in before the weekend. The 3.55 pulley is something I'm going to start testing sometime in the next few weeks. Trying to slow the charger down a little to help low charge temps, I feel the set up will actually make more power, esp in the low end of the RPM range due to the fact that although the charger isn't making the boost it would with a smaller pulley, the boost won't be much less than with the smaller pulley, plus the charge will be a lot cooler. This is the thoery I've kind of speculated for a while now, and this larger 3.55 pluuey will either totally prove or disprove it. All I need before I throw the 3.55 pulley on is a trick set up to carefully measure boost temps and plot them against what the smaller pulley is doing.

      finally retuned mine so its not pinging when i look at the gas peddle and wound up having to take out like all the timing

      soon as i finish up some other projects i have going its time to swap the M90 out for the M62 with TB relocation


    27. 03-29-2007 10:44 AM #132
      Still runs way better at ~10psi than most any NA 8V setups .

      Word, and welcome to the club!

      G60_C, I've got the same prob with my pics too! If you figure it out, please let me know, I'll do the same. I've got my charger set up done and I'd like to show pics of it, but posting pics is a pain!

      I had to machine an alu pulley to the same specs as the Ford SC one (the 10% overdrive one, on the '94/'95 SC), except I one up-ed it and made it a 6 groove pulley, so the belt can't jump between the serps...

      I is, I is. using a 9A from a 91 passat that i picked up for uber-cheap

      got a set of shrick 268's going in.. running digi1 w/a custom sns chip (when i actually get everything together anyway)...

      set of wiseco 9:1 forged slugs going in.. arp blah blah blah... eaton m90...

      currently running a starion IC... think that's gotta be upsized *just a tad*.. but.. running out of $$ right now...

      we'll see how things work out... i'm not going for a huge-power setup... just a fun-driving, something new, setup.

      as for pics, i'm workin on it as we speak

      Hi everyone,

      I'm currently building an ABA 16V with a Merc M62. It'll have ~9.5:1 CR with 9A pistons, running Megasquirt II, a water-air cooler to keep the plumbing short, and a G60 T/B for recirc. Got a 50mm manifold to try too.

      I've modified the M62 to take a standard G60 pulley instead of the stoopid clutch thing, so I'll start with stock (78mm) and see where it takes me. That gives me a range of 10,500rpm @ 6000 engine rpm to 14k on a 60mm pulley.

      I'm building it for fun, as I have all the bits kicking about, and torque as I don't much like 16V screamers
      I'd be very interested in what sort of numbers you guys think this will make.......

      When it's all done I will post dyno results. There's one less than an hour from my house so it would be rude not to
