Little update ----

After planning and researching what SC I would use I went back to my roots no pun intended and selected a 5th gen M62 Eaton SC from a 2005 Cobalt SS to take care of the low end Its size and power potential is right on for the 2.5-2.7L. Very nice unit with the bypass valve integrated.



Well yesterday I got lucky and found one very very low mileage for very cheap with the bypass valve included.

Plan is to fabricate the SC holder on the stand by measuring everything and without disrupting anything so far it looks really good. I measured it on the stand and engine bay.


On the way is the used again very cheap M50 engine crank pulley (5 rib system). Using a 2:1 ratio the crank pulley being 4 inch 7/8 with a 2.6 inch pulley (modular system from ZZPERFORMANCE.com) will give me a good non intercooled 6-8 PSI The cooler will be on the turbo side then going into the inlet of the SC for a twincharge setup.

The car is running really well... took it up to 6K today and its making some good power and torque. Once I get my gauge holder I will start tuning with my innovate wideband.

Later.....

My guess is they were trashed and made their way to the trash.

LOL... damn trash! Ah well....

Little update ---

Today I received my M50 crank pulley and it fits like a glove on the M20



10$ from bavarian recyclers looks like new.


Removed the alternator and will move it on the back (in place of the A/C which I got rid of dont need it )


Also modular pulley is on the way from ZZP I ordered a 2.6" and a 3" idler pulley as well should be good for 5-8 PSI.

Got a pipe and coupler ready that will fit but first thing is first start working on the brakets to mount alternator in the back and holding brackets for the blower.

later... baby steps...baby steps...

wow!! you can hear the crickets in here....... lol

update ---

Well I started the mockup design with cardboard just to see how things would fit. Then I will transfer to MDF board and then get it made in Mildsteel plate with spacers. Alternator relocation



Base plate will also use spacers.. and the tensionner braket



shot from the front...



more coming soon.... I have to admit its very very involved but its a LOT of fun...

later..
