Home made supercharger

I am working on a supercharger. Centrifugal flow.
I need to know a few things I cannot locate...
It is for an 86 supra i plan on making race worthy. Only problem is, I get the car for free and the owner doesn't know if its an 86 or an 86.5 model (different engines...)
well its either a 2.8 liter 160 sumthing hp or a 3 liter 200 hp...I believe if anyone else knows for sure please tell me.

Once iI know this I can continue, I have drawn out the plans but need to scale it and figure out gear rations...
It is based on a jet engine I made a few years back. I was going to modify the one for my jet into a supercharger for my lawnmower, but my parents wont let me touch it (they have a agdener now why do they need a 6 hp lawnmower?)

It is really quite simple as they both use the same principal. I cannot answer, though, which will flow more air...I am near positive the centifugal type for jets flows more air. The only difference is an added piece for the jet, the compressor wheels are the same the diffuser is added.

I can get some pics up of what the superchargers insides will look like, but it is near identical to what an over the counter (if that exists) supercharger is made up of...

guess you came to the wrong site for that car...

can you get the engine code?

7m-gte or 2jz-gte?

i'm guessing it's the 7m-gte which is the 2.8.

non turbo version might be 7m-ge.

all the old skule supras ive seen at the yards have the displacement stamped on the top of the motor...as in the valvecover.

Well here is a silly suggestion.....call a dealership with the VIN. I'm sure they can tell you everything you want to know about the car.

I think the original poster should use some gas leaf blowers. Rig 6 of them up with the throttle cable LOL I've always wanted to see somebody try that. Heck, enough leaf blowers and it might even make boost

it does work. There is a video with a guy on his little 4 banger and takes an electric leaf blower throttles it up in the intake tube and the car saw like 10HP increase. LOL funniest **** ever.

Why hasn't anyone ever welded a junkyard eaton onto a v8 manifold? It might be easier with the distributer in back. Then again it might cost the same as buying a new blower when your done but wouldn't run as well?

Well, you wouldn't want to weld a blower on. It would ruin it as the heat would warp everything.

You could modify an intake to accept an Eaton. This could easily be done with an adapter. I made my own for 3.8 throttle body to 5.0 throttle body conversions out of billets of aluminum. Hood clearance could be an issue.

The problem is the displacement. An M90 is a wee bit on the small side for a V8. Now a cobra M112 on the other hand might be an idea. They are currently being flogged on Ebay quite cheap.

I have also seen Eatons mounted on brackets in the engine bay and "plumbed" like centrifugal blowers. Where there is a will there is a way. Of course you would need to deal with extra fuel and exhaust as well as an ECM conversion etc.

Of course the blower would have to unbolt I guess that's like welding some custom headers on
