Talking F/I Eaton M90 Superchager

I am going to supercharge my 1988 325IS! I have purchased a complete supercharger setup form a 1993 Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe.

My plan is to remove my air conditioner, relocate my alternator to the Air conditioner compressor location. Install my super charger on the left side of my engine where my alternator was. I know I will have to fabricate the brackets, change my belt pulleys and belts, but this can be done with some patience.

I am going to install my inter cooler behind either me IS front Air dam or directly behind my kidney grills. I would prefer the location behind the kidney grills!

I plan on running my stock 8.8 to compression with 8 to 10 pounds supercharger boost. Increasing my fuel pressure, running at least 21 lb injectors and an aftermarket chip. This should produce approximately 302 rear wheel horse power

I already have stainless steel headers and and custom dual exhaust with no catalytic converters

I expect this to take a little while as it will be done in stages as I drive the car daily. I have this planned out into about 8 steps over the next few months time. I will post pictures and more details as they follow!

First step, this week

I have tried to break this build down into manageable parts. This car is my daily driver and I do not want to be without it for a long period of time. I am planning about ten steps, making it more manageable time wise and financially.

The first step, I hope to accomplish this week is removal of the air conditioning compressor, condenser, tubing, cooling coils. Relocate the alternator to where the AC compressor was on the right lower side of the motor and add to the wiring length as necessary.

I hope water and moisture will not be problem with my alternator the low. I do not drive my BMW through much water. No fording creeks or rivers!
