    Centrifugal Supercharger Oiling

    Luckily I found a similar ad from a few years ago from Turbo Technics, same unit was apparently rated for around 2.5L. Bit of luck that! Seller did say that it had been refurbished but when and what was put it is anyone’s guess. Ad confirmed as well that it’s fine to use engine oil to lubricate...

    Centrifugal Supercharger Oiling

    I spun the charger by hand today and it equates to 14 impeller turns per 1 pulley turn. The gent I bought it from also claimed that the boost capability of the unit was 1.5bar. Cheers.

    Centrifugal Supercharger Oiling

    Thanks mate, as I took a bit of a punt on this as cheap as it was, the guy didn’t seem to know what it was. “TT30037” is written on the housing of the unit but nothing else. Googling that code yields no results, sadly. I have measured a few things on it and these number are as follows...

    Centrifugal Supercharger Oiling

    Is there any major drawbacks to using engine oil to lubricate a Centrifugal Supercharger? I have managed to acquire a good unit but it doesn’t come with an Oil reservoir. I was thinking about tapping an oil feed and using a filter to work as a protective measure

    Turbo Oil Drain

    Thanks for your thoughts Gents. Pretty much confirmed everything I was thinking but thought it might be worth an ask |B

    Turbo Oil Drain

    Just something I've been thinking about; Most people have a separate Oil Drain attached to the oil pan but I was wondering if anyone has ever used the Sump Plug as an oil drain for the Turbo? Would the stock sump plug be too low to act as a sufficient drain? Cheers

    Intermittent Rough Acceleration

    My car has an Eaton M62 supercharger on it and occasionally suffers from a hesitation, jerkiness when accelerating. For example, if I have been following someone and manage to get round them, it jerks and pops and the revs don't climb. If I release the throttle and press slowly, that sometimes...

    No worries. Same problem?

    Supercharger Exhaust Setup Question

    Turns out the hesitation came from a failing coil pack. I thought it was strange that it was intermittent so I thought I could rule that out

    Supercharger Exhaust Setup Question

    Very true, might be worth just buying a brand new set seeing as they’re not very expensive

    Supercharger Exhaust Setup Question

    I have actually carried out 1 & 5, the injectors were bought second hand from a breaker and I was assured that they were checked before I got them. Thanks though, always worth doing the easy stuff first

    Supercharger Exhaust Setup Question

    Hi all, looking for a little input on something I have been thinking about recently. My car has the original exhaust setup, which is a twin pipe 2" exhaust from the headers to the backbox. I have fitted a supercharger and am running at approx. 0,4-0,6 bar of boost and have noticed an increase...

    E36 No Crank

    For anyone wondering, it appears it was a fault with the ACS/ABS system. Pulled the relay and the fuses and suddenly it started turning again!! Thanks to those who chipped in

    E36 No Crank

    I will certainly try that, thanks I’m at a loss as I said. When I fitted it at first, and before I fitted the intake manifold and ancillaries, it turned fine. It’s so odd for it to just stop.
