Sweet jebus.

Yes, what he's doing is kick ass, but...

you drive an EVO!!

Seriously BP, how much of a "bolt-on" project this will be is critical info. The more details of that the better.

I'm happy to report that both the side accessory bracket fits AND the alternator fits! The bracket had to be hacked up in a couple places to both clear the intake and the JRSC. The alternator had to be swung out about 2.75" in order to clear the JRSC. I will need to make a bracket/spacer to hold the alternator out and for the new idler pulley. Here are some pics of what I did...

Mounted properly, the alternator hits the bottom of the JRSC. I rotated it out in order to clear.


The bracket had to be notched to clear the intake.


Here it is on the motor with the intake mounted.


Here's a shot of the top of the bracket. I had to cut both the engine lifting bracket and top of the bracket.


Motor lift bracket chopped.


Here's the side view of the top of the bracket. I cut just next to the top alternator mounting point.


I had to round off the lower outside alternator mounting point. The alternator wouldn't rotate out without removing that bump.


All of the removed pieces.


Here you can see that there is almost no clearance between the stock 3.6" JRSC pulley and the passenger side motor mount. Fortunately, I'm going to be using a much smaller pulley. (I'm keeping my crank UDP on so my JRSC pulley size starts at 2.9" and goes down from there.) You can also see in this pic how the top of the bracket now clears the snout of the JRSC.


I'm thinking about welding a box into the manifold opening and cutting a 3" hole in the bottom. I'd then weld a 3" elbow to the bottom of the manifold. That way I could route the blower output through my water-air intercooler. I was just sizing up a 3" hole in this pic...



WOW, that was a b!tch of a post to type. I hope that all of the pics make sense.

Very true. Without Hector proving that is could be done, I'd still be in uncharted territory.

He was also doing the same thing that I am... He stumbled onto a great deal on a JRSC and decided to make it work. The M45's were much more plentiful than the (then brand new) M62 superchargers.

After seeing Hector's install, the Mondeo guys, and now my own install... If I were a 98+ Zetec guy, I'd go buy a friggin' Powerworks intercooled M62. It's practically a bolt on with incredible intercooled goodness.

They just dropped the price AGAIN to $3350. 98+ guys, you should really check this out.
