    Wish you the best of luck. Paypal is great untill you need an issue resolved. I filed 2 claims several years ago, won them, and paypal banned me! Is there anyone that you can take it to to get re-welded? I know how you feel. I have spent the equal of a new s/c kit to make my fiasco drivable. Did I tell you when O blew up my engine on the dyno and said it was the fault of the OEM headgaket?

    So what in the world are you going to do?

    Damn it man why did you have to buy this thing.
    Paypal and ebay and even amazon have this great history of banning people who complain, removing valid arguments against vendors who sell a lot of stuff through them etc... there is so much dodgy sheet going on with ebay in fine jewelry it would make your head spin.. such as these dodgy people http://www.ebay.com/itm/121305520792...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    Paypal is like a dictator. There policies are crazy along with the way they treat people but can you do? I don't know why they are such pricks.

    Hey everyone, I'm new to the site but would like to give this a try also. I'm going to use as much of the jag setup as possible. Not sure about tuning yet. Does anybody know what boost the eBay setup is supposed to put out with bm pulley? Not sure if it's the same size as the jag one.

    Man I can't believe so many people are trying to get an Ebay kit re-using an Eaton blower from Jags to work on the M62. I mean, props, but clearly getting this thing to work isn't easy.

    I'd wait to see if @m5james can get it working.

    I'd rather you buy mine vs starting from scratch, but then again I wish I'd had stuck w/ 99% of the stock Jag setup as well. From talking w/ Jens, it runs about 6-8psi from what he's mentioned

    Can't get my money back...Jens is a thief and I don't trust sending it back to him. There is someone selling their kit on eBay who claims he created the ad so Jens would buy his back as well, but Jens has disappeared. In the meantime I've posted on every single video of his in hopes that people will read it and stop buying.

    Well looks like he is hoping to take advantage of people. Write a negative review on Ebay as that is all you can do.

    I hope it wasn't too much money. Someone is better off piecing together their own kit using the Eaton than this and it likely would come out cheaper considering that blower is everywhere and can be picked up secondhand for just a few dollars.

    I didn't buy the eBay kit. I'm going to do it on my own. That kit looks like trouble.

    It never felt right from the beginning. You are right to stay away.

    I can't leave feedback since myself and the other guy both bought directly through PayPal because we negotiated a "deal" for a price of $4200 vs $5500 that he's asked for now.

    I've priced the parts and everything he's selling could be bought for around $1500, rebuild the SC for $300 and then probably $500 for QUALITY adapters from the head to the Jaguar inlets.

    I saw multiple idling videos in different cars, I know that SC intimately so I got excited since I know what it's capable of. Then I saw new designs, so I figured "great, he's still developing so this means progress" and I jumped on his latest design...I couldn't have been anymore wrong.

    Hey man you live you learn. Crying over spilt milk won't do you any favors now. Brush it off and move on. Warning others is all you can do.

    I wish I would have more strongly advised you against it but it's too late for that as well.

    PayPal said to contact my bank, after two weeks of waiting my bank said to contact PayPal. I've since closed my Wells Fargo account and moved to a credit union.

    At $4200 I've got no real choice to make it work. It's a hugely flawed design, but the mounting kit could be made to work w/ some additional welding, fiberglass resin to fix the plenum cover, etc it's just all the plumbing and whatnot that escapes me.

    Has anyone got there kits up and running yet? I have the adapters made to bolt the jaguar intercoolers to my heads, intercoolers getting powder coated, and waiting on heat exchanger,pump, air-fuel gauge. The stock jag injectors are 34lb I believe so that should be in the ball park. Still haven't found a tuner yet.

    I still email this guy to hound him in an effort to let him know I'm not going away. Lately my questions have been as to why I can't get the mounting kit to line up with the stock heads, which his reply is that I need to change the bolts from an M8 to an M6.

    This weekend I'm going to borrow my friends engine hoist , stand and an M60 to start test fitting things. It's not a rush thing for me though because I'm still skeptical about how the SC is secured to the mounting kit/adapter. I've been working on my other supercharged beast, but if I can answer any questions on parts included in my kit (I've got tons of pics and his halfass instructions), feel free to all questions.

    What'd you end up paying to get those adapters made and can you upload pics?

    The intake studs are 7mm, idk how he expects you to use 6mm bolts. I made the adpters myself. I'll get some pics when it all comes back from powder coat.

    M8 Bolt ?????? You is not going to help what's going on with you? I have written M6 thread on the M7 bolts. Remove M7 bolts!! cut in the middle!! and on the side without thread cut M6 thread ..... Then that fits!!

    Dear first-class1990,

    Explain to me how removing bolts from the block and installing M8 bolts is going to make the holes line up? You've seen my pics of their misalignment...I don't see how that can be fixed by changing bolts when the bolts will be going into the same holes.

    This is a copy and paste directly from my eBay emails. It looks like he's changing the bolts due to the stock bolts having so much shank to them.

    Why didn't he just use 7mm? I know they're an oddball size but you can get them.
