Almost done with Power brakes. It is quite the job as I had to remove the MC, redo the brake lines and redo the SC intake (still waiting on 3" flex to install)













Also had to weld brake pedal tab to connect brake

booster.



So I just have to finish the piping for the SC, adjust brake pedal.



I will probably mount the air filter in one of the kidneys and plumb it using the 3" flex I got in the mail. Should be better anyways for removing the air filter from the hot under hood temps.



When all this is done I move to the electric Power steering.

With Problem number 1 resolved: Power brakes installed.



Sooooo in order to safety my car in QC and keep my Supercharger system at the same time I had to find a solution for my problem number 2) Power Steering.



Well they want Power steering....well they will have it Great seller on ebay called pontiac442 made me a good deal on this used pump from europe, its in the mail, oh and its Electric all in one makes for a clean clean underhood.



Meanwhile I will get ready for this project I cant wait to get started... this is an amazing option for E30 owners. Stay tuned...










anybody else know of a good local place (ottawa) that can make me some not too expensive custom Power steering hose?

My google search gave me these guys : http://www.diotteshydraulics.on.ca so I will give them a try on monday...but looking for others shop to compare prices...

I'd try to stick to oem hoses, what is the pump off of? Look at the OEM hoses (realOEM)and see if they can patch into your rack. After that I'd go through other cars and see if any have hoses at whatever length you might need.

The only problem getting something custom I've had with BMW are line fittings, can't find them anywhere.

I guy in E30tech.com did the conversion and inspired me. he found fittings no problem.



I can go like this or custom banjo bolt setup M14x1.5 high pressure and M16x1.5 low pressure side(I got the original for reference anyways)

I even found pre made hoses at TSC store near me...I believe I got some options..

found a local shop to do my custom hydraulic hoses.

Diotte hydraulics Ottawa contact Marc or Sylvain for those interested.

Pump will be here this week I should have lots of pics of the whole process for anybody that would want to replicate it.

http://www.diotteshydraulics.on.ca/

and my OEM M50 crank pulley should be at Performance shop in the U.S tomorrow so Mark- machinist will build me a one of a kind 7" diameter and 6 Rib pulley to up my SC boost levels to 8-10 PSI in my M20 SC setup.

How did you go about choosing the pulley to put on the SC, as well as on the M20?

You mean what size diameter for crank and pulley? Not sure I understand the question.

Sometime Princess auto has hoses that they can make up, aswell as TSC store.

If your looking for AN hardware and other little bits of cool, good quality pieces like AN fitting. Look at www.aircraftspruce.ca

The ottawa Princess Auto can make custom hoses, and have JIC fittings which are very, very close to AN fittings (different thread cut but otherwise identical). I used JIC fittings everywhere on my turbo and saved myself 15% or more by switching to Geico.

Jay I scoured princess auto for the proper fittings and I could only muster up about half if what I wad looking for. Ended up ordering from http://www.siliconeintakes.com/index...e6dc7d687d3d31. Prices are descent.

As long as the owner pays his domain renewal fee
I've bought parts from there as well. Way cheaper prices than the local performance parts store.

LOL..

Problem is the fitting adapters from Metric to JIC. The hydraulic shop prices are very very similar and I can get everything at once and technical help too since I dont know anything about hydraulics...lol...

Still waiting for pump to arrive I will bring it with me...there on belfast 10 minutes from work.



"MAXBELL:
Hey dude;

I'm just wondering, for my own supercharger build coming up, about pulley sizing.

I have an Eaton M90, with a 3" pulley.

I'm hoping to run the A/C pulley, but I have no idea what sorta boost that will give. (or what size that pulley is)

Is there a calculation to see what psi different pulley sizes will give? I'm aiming for 9-12 psi.

I'm just starting to read about S/Cing, and man there sure is a ton of info. "

I tough I would post your question here so everybody that has the same question can see it.

The calculations are as follow (and also in my blog) I recommend you check out my blog. I see a lot of people going Roots type blowers and they are totally not prepared for it and have no idea of the amount of work it is involved... I recommend you also read Supercharged! by corky bell have a plan put it on paper, read everything you can, learn from others that have done it.

Here is my calculations:

Crank Pulley Circumferance = cm 12.446 - 4.9"
S/C Pulley Circumferance = cm -6.60 - 2.6"
Ratio = 1.885 / 1 = 1.885

@ 6500 rpm = 12,257 S/C rpm

(M90 outup is 1.5L)
M62 supercharger output capacity = 1 L/ rpm = 12,257 L
(LPM*.03531 = CFM) = 432 CFM of air


2.5 engine can inhale 252.6 CFM(not 100% sure here for M20) of air


Excess air = 432 – 252.6 = 180 “boosted” CFM


Boost = excess CFM / normal CFM * atmospheric pressure
180 / 252.6 * 14.7 = 10.5 PSI pounds boost


this is approximate (doesnt take account intercooler pressure drop, pipes, elevation, how freely you engine breaths, belt slip..etc..)

With my intercooler and freeflow headers/exhaust Its more like 5PSI, so that is why am getting a 7" diameter Crank wheel since my SC pulley is already 2.65" cant go any lower and am looking for a little more boost for my SC side plus I will go 6 rib instead of 5 at the same time since my SC pulley is 6 Rib.

Once I add the turbo I want a compounded Max boost of 15-17 PSI.

Good luck would be cool to see another roots type bmw around!!

That's awesome, I'm working backwards through the calculation to find my pulley size.

If I want to boost the engine to 10 psi, does that mean I want to have the S/C running at 20 psi? To account for the loss before it hits the motor?
