M112 supercharger

My engine is stock, what do I need to do to go supercharged?
Do I need forged intervals and a cam?
What size fuel injectors?

Does anyone have this m112 supercharger?

Why would u have to give up the tuner and you would spend about the same amount for less power

Re: M112 supercharger

its been done many times on your car, you dont need anything other than fuel upgrades to run about 8psi, and get some good numbers, cant remember exactly where power level but probably 270-300. I think thats right~

the issue is its not intercooled due to you cant on your engine (no where to put intercooler). Heat will be the problem~ They make kits for it. I dont think any clears the stock hood so you can cut a hole in your hood or get a huge cowl hood.

Yeah, why would you have to give up your SCT?

Not to mention having to either cut up your stock hood or buying a new hood and having it painted to match. Also, being unable to run any kind of intercooler so you're just pushing hot compressed air into the motor asking for problems.

The m112 is a nice novelty idea, but, it's not the best way to go about getting supercharged. Sure, the blower itself can be had for 300-500...but, all of the rest of the parts you need like the adaptor plate (if anyone still makes them) are just going to run your cost up for at best the same power you could get from a vortech/procharger/etc.

Re: M112 supercharger

you can get the supercharger for 400 bucks~ with low miles but overall I would just do something else. I think the kit is like 2500 bucks~ not including hood

if you have that kind of money (say another 2k to get it all done) you can sell your car for something else (another option to consider)

Re: M112 supercharger

I think beyond gears and tuner, etc... on v6, why not just head into a used GT or something.

Re: M112 supercharger

Yah this idea has been beat, pushed and riddled with arguments and discussion throughout the mustang community.

I agree with others...it can be done, but for the money spent you can get a nice centri style charger or turbo and be intercooled and/or make more power. Roots blowers are cool but really don't mesh well on the v6.

Plus the fact that the adapter plate alone is 900 is rediculous (if it's even made still). It's pretty bad when you can buy the supercharger cheaper than an adapter plate.

I guess if you had some serious coin to spend, and planned on building the whole engine, you could do the m112, but I'd choose another FI route or get into a v8.

Again, probably more hassle than it's worth.

You basically need a complete donor car to do the swap right. Plus the drivetrain and suspension should be upgraded or at least brought up to stock specs with regards to the v8 being used. Ex. Don't put a 4v in and keep the stock 7.5" rear.

I've contemplated the swap in the past and have concluded that it'd be much easier to simply buy a v8 based car.

I, however, am like you, I have a lot of work, money and sentimentality in my v6 so I will wait until the current v6 goes out (hopefully won't be for a long time as mine has 63k right now), and I will either do a v8 swap or build up the v6...either way it will be a project, so I can do it at my own pace and won't rely on the car as a dd.

Well still gonna keep it. It's in fair condition and has 119,000 miles on it. And jus put an exhaust, new transmission, and a sct tuner. And it runs great.

Re: M112 supercharger

yea motor transplants lead to hassle, issues, problems, and lower resale value... not worth it and you usually come out ahead selling/buying something else in that case lol
