    Whaaaattt...? Michigan roads in winter suck? I'm so shocked! Are they all moon-crater potholed or is that just in and around Detroit?

    I volunteer Thad to drive over and tune it with you. Then have a boost-off.

    Haha, yeah, my 540 is clean and sitting currently too, thanks to the ridiculous conditions.

    But assuming I own it long enough to get the next clutch installed in it, BOOST-OFF for sure! That part about owning it long enough is a question mark at this point, since I've been discussing with another forum member possibly selling it to him. We shall see.

    Ha Ha, no you don't it's a curse! Can''t leave anything alone... but it think that applies to everyone here on this site. It is running very well! There's a nice coat of rubber all over the back of my car...

    I have recently found our that the jaguar m112 will fit with modified intake plates and found a donor supercharger in the junk yard this past weekend. Does anyone know where I can find the adapter mount plate and intake spacers?

    Hey guys. I had Steve (Toolman) build a set of manifold adapters for me and machine the supercharger casing. I was gearing up to do the install but I found an M5 and this side-lined the supercharger project for now.

    I have all the Jag parts required and of course the stuff from Steve up for sale. I also have another set of the Jag parts if someone else is having trouble sourcing those parts. Normally I'd start a for sale ad in the correct forum but this stuff is specific to this thread.

    Let me know if your interested.

    Thanks! Eric
