M112 5.0 Adapter

Anyone have any experience with these and know where to buy one? I see them all over youtube and may be something I think would be fun to mess around with. It's no fun without taking a few risks right!?

This piqued my curiosity.
Apparently, there is a now defunct website calla jdbmods.com that sold these adapter plates.

Apparently, the best way to do it is now DIY

Maybe i should have kept that m90 from one of the sc donors. It would have been a little undersized but the price would have been right.

I wouldn't really think of that as a reasonable DIY. If you look closely at his system you'll see that he's running that setup in an 80's Fox Body LTD II and he makes no mention of tuning. Having read through a lot of the thread I saw that he had detonation on a piston that messed it up pretty bad and plenty of other challenges. When you consider all of the work he had to do to make it fit then you begin to wonder if the results were worth the reward. I'm putting out more power NA than he was with that setup. His car just weighs less.

If you wanted to do a supercharger on a 5.0 MN12 then look for something that fits the 94-95 Mustang GT and you're most of the way there.
