Can you tell us more about your supercharger plans?

Is there a kit that enables your supercharger to be mounted up?

Hey Nathan 

there's no kit that i know of, i was going to use the jag xjr supercharger as there was a kit in the states that would mount it up.

But couldn't seal the deal on that so went with the AMG charger. 

I'm just going to set it up the same way as the jag one. Get some custom intake adapter plates made from bmw  to charger. Then will try and use the Bmw fuel lines and injectors, the Charger has an intercooler integrated into the bottom of the charger itself so would "hopefully" sit in the bmw valley pan area. plump it up and either chip the ecu or go aftermarket worst case. 

Thats the rough idea at the moment for it.

check this build out, this is what got me on to the idea.

Ah this is great. I was thinking about doing something similar with the ute, but i haven't managed to track down a charger yet. Where did you get yours?

Hi Francois

I purchased mine off euro1 auto spares. But had a jag one lined up, it was from trade me. But couldn't come to an agreement with the seller

If you keep a look out for any jag xjr model that is getting wrecked, it should have the charger like the one above.

Thanks

So went to try and put the PMC adapter plate on the box but realized its made for left hand drive for the starter motor. so angled grind the right side to match the left hopefully its fit.

Hi Team 

another small update

so have spent the last week just modifying the adapter plate to fit. 

I had to grind out the holes that bolt to the motor, grind a bit of the box to allow the bolts and starter motor to fit. 

But know she fits perfectly. 

few pictures of the flywheel clutch and adapter plate.

almost there.

Did you dial in the adapter plate on the engine after making the adapter plate modifications ?

Hey Glenn

Wasn't sure what you meant so i googled It :) 

No i didn't dial it in. However the holes that i did make didn't effect the position of the adapter plates itself when bolted to the box or motor. So hopefully the company that made it dialed in.

So just another small update, doesn't look much but spent a few hours on my back putting it in.

Now i can officially say it has three pedals :) 

Best part was i didn't have to take the steering colum off which i read online that i was going to have to do.

master cylinder and clutch lines all put in and ready to go.

Another update Team

This was a couple of weekends work, Can almost see the finish line.

So motor is now mounted, had a couple little hiccups as you do. 

Had to remove the gearbox to get the motor in, had a few rear axle bolts give us grief so smashed them off and had to be replaced. 

New belts put on and asc+t throttle plate removed, new sway bar stabilizer arms and rebuilt Diff from Kayne Barrie with 3.15 LSD

So tried the factory 525i diff but was slightly too long, will need to get it shorten by 27mm.

Left to do. Reattach the rest of the front end. 

                   Secure electric fan onto Radiator

                   Sort wiring out, reverse lights, car to read in neutral and jump starter motor relay.

                   Refit exhaust

And thats about it. 

Can't wait!

Evening Team

So the day has come finally and we have got the M60b44 with 5 speed swap up and running.

Long time coming but was worth it. shifts really smoothly, sounds great alot quicker that the auto box.

Took her for a few test runs, gave all the helpers a go at drive her too. 

So just small things to sort out now. tidy up electric fan wiring, get a bracket for the clutch fluid reservoir, Gear knob, put bonnet back on and get a final tune.

One question for you guys if you can help out in any way. 

5th gear keeps popping out, it won't even stay in position at all. any ideas of what could be the problem?

Thanks Richard
