Hey GAVIN. You still breathing?!

It's May the 2nd. No one has bothered you for well over a month officially and it's my turn to be a PITA. Is the project scraped or still in limbo? It's getting to crunch time for my long term plan for this platform and I'd like to know where you stand.

Sorry for being an ass but I'm sure I'm not the only one here that is feeling left in the dark right now.

this may be indicative of the fact that there are greater challenges to tuning operational FI than many have previously thought. Or worse, the possibility that the aluminum sleeved magnesium block is not up to the task

Still optimistic about an eventual breakthrough.

Leave him alone, he is busy losing weight! Keep up the hard work Gavin.
We all are still waiting for S/C news. How about a little tease.

It can be tuned. Arma supercharged the N52 and made power with it. There has to be something else holding him up at this point. The only reason nobody bought the Arma was price and availability. I personally hope that gavin chooses a roots style supercharger over a centrifugal.

sorry to be a newbie but I got two questions about the S/C in the making...
about how much would it cost in USD?
how big is the availability for it?
most importantly, how much HP and tourque are expected to be gained?

Pricing will be under $7k

When ready, will be available for any N52 powered vehicle

We are shooting for 300-320Hp and 290-300Tq

Under $7K. That's reassuring since you were giving us a pretty wide $6K-$8K range before.

Thanks for the update.

Its still a centrifugal, a Vortech unit, so if you want to swap a pulley - go ahead. But do note that if you swap a pulley out and "pop" your car - MMW is not responsible for that

I guess most importantly, when do we get final results or a date?

i think that asking this question will just lead to more disappointment. if anything, those interested should be asking if updates will be routinely given
