    I’m ready to get on this S/c bandwagon. Have an m60 in the car now and a pair of m62’s ready for a rebuild in the shop.

    Btw, if anyone has a good source for a supercharger and other needed parts it would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind of odd for a first and only post but guessing you bought from him?

    Yeah I did just place an order for one.
    1st post but I think I've read every post twice on this kit here and elsewhere.

    Not as simple as he makes out to fit. Lots of fettling, including grinding down certain areas of the block. Also had a massive issue with routing the belt. The belt he suggested was not right for my application, and as it stands, im 6 belts, a custom tensioner and counting.
    Also, when fitting, you put the chargecooler 'ears' on, then slide the charger in. Then spend the next 5 hours trying to do up the bolts underneath to secure the charger. HOLY $#@!.

    Sounds like a ton of work to make it fit but how do you like it overall?

    The sound is amazing. Not had it mapped yet. Its had to have a custom ECU. I had a tonne of problems with the charger not seating properly onto the custom plate from toolman, hence why certain bits of the block had to be ground down. I had airleaks everywhere.

    It's at the stage now where I needed to buy the boost recirculator from a second hand jag and fit that otherwise the charger was stalling the belt. Makes sense really, i didn't know i needed that bit until doing a bit of googling.

    Specs are as follows:
    M60B40 BMW V8 engine
    Jaguar eaton supercharger
    custom pulley
    EMU ECU
    stock injectors (couldnt get upgraded ones to fit with the setup) (also had a total nightmare trying to get information from jaguar on the injector voltage for mapping, it's "proprietary information" and therefore classified. GAH)
    fuel pressure regulator
    upgraded gaskets
    custom throttle body (from a 1JZ engine)
    custom chargecooler radiator setup and water pump
    lambda sensors (AEM wideband)
    map sensors
    throttle position sensor
    air temp sensor
    all of the new stress on the other parts of the engine meant new water pump pulley, new power steering pump
    custom belt tensioner fabricated
    android tablet for ECU display
    340lph high flow fuel pump
    injector ring seals
    outlet duct gasket seal


    And this is just the bits i had to add/upgrade for the supercharger conversion. For those of you thinking about this conversion, and how simple it might be because the charger was only 300, I'm at nearly 6k just on the charger build.

    I think this will be the only M60B40 with a Jaguar Eton charger, in a Nissan 200SX in Europe. Maybe the world.

    Next time im slapping a turbo on.

    How are you getting on with yours?

    I have most of the components just waiting for time to have the car down to do it.
    I have to cut the supercharger mount on the bottom off still but that's the only big hurdle I'm a little nervous of.
    I have about $3,000CAD into my setup so far.

    I notice you have yours mounted to the m60b40 is that the cause of the air leaks? Toolman has an m62tub44 in both of his cars (unless yours was made to fit those heads)

    Toolman said it was fine. I asked multiple times.

    Update on this:
    It went for mapping. Chucks the belt off at 5000rpm. Absolutely every $#@!ing time.
    Installed a custom tensioner in to make the belt tighter. Still chucks the belt at 5000 rpm under load.

    So I'm now going for a custom front pulley on the front of the supercharger that links down to the crank directly with a custom pulley on the front of the crank and will be running a gator toothed 2 inch belt. This means I can run the standard belt for all the ancilliaries and the charger will have it's own belt.

    These bits are being fabricated at the moment. I'll post an update soon.

    If anyone's interested in buying a complete and running setup using toolmans kit let me know. I'm based in the UK unfortunately though.

    You might of already changed this but your charge coolers are plumbed up wrong. You need to split an inlet and and outlet so that you get the coldest water possible to each side. Look at my picture to give you the idea

    good spot - and great point - will get the plumbing adjusted for optimum charge cooling - thanks!
