Supercharger: Jaguar XKR supercharger (Eaton M112 internals) . Modified, cut off mounting brackets and shortened nosed drive to custom length and polished and installed meth injection port.


Ya a little custom LOL. Its not a true Roots straight lobe compressor, they screw comps, so are lower profile initially.

not really taller than the LT1 intake

To be honest, this is very inovative. Wonder how much help he has had to put all of this together? He has done a great job and the SC sounds great too! I was wondering though, does the water/meth conbination allow for cooling prior to being consumed by the engine? :B):

I believe that's exactly what it does Doc. My Dad added Methanol injection to his Power Stroke Diesel. It acts like a small shot of nitrous. He uses it mostly to keep his exhaust temps down when he's towing his 5th wheel. Usually only on steep grades.
