    Hey toolman, I'm trying to find your email in your information but it will not take me to the page. I'm interested in your supercharger setup. Would like to put it in my E30

    @toolman2, have you tried fitting on E38 yet? I am really interested in conservative boost (like around 5-8 lbs of boost) for reliability.

    DeafM5 I haven't personally but a few others have. The only obstacle is getting around the right side cabin filter.

    PROJECT UPDATE; I've joined the twin disc club after my phase 2 M5 clutch passed away. 20180802_163347.jpg20180725_093758.jpg
    UUC has a very nice kit, a bit more pedal effort and you get the trans rattle but ohh how it holds...

    holy shit toolman lives
    i guess that was his two posts for the year, back to hibernation
    Looking for an e39 Touring black carpet set, including the rear cargo cubbies and side sections!
    ALSO looking for 540i 6speed manual transmission sets (2001+ pedals with switches, driveshaft, gearbox), for the 6speed swap! Probably not for a while....

    Ha HA, Ya I'll see if can get on here more this year...Sooo at 13# boost and the new clutch it's truly a blast to drive and fights for traction through 3rd gear. This spring the only thing to do is crank up the boost to 15 or so and see how it likes it.

    Toolman is back!! Keep up with the updates! Crank up that boost! I also went the UUC twin route. Holds whatever I throw at it. Nice kit. I do get some engagement squeal here and there on aggressive starts though, but its not that big of a deal. Totally fine as a daily driving clutch.

    Good Evening! I hope you are doing great and thawing out!
    I have a '97 540i m62 build date 3/97. Already have m112 sc and coolers from a Jag 4.0l.
    How much is the adapter setup that you fabricate?
    All The Best,
    Frank

    Philly I'm getting that same squeel every now and then... sounds like tires squeeling. wonder if this is characteristic of the twin disc ??

    Frank pm'd you. This works well with the earlier engines but adds some complexity to the install as you will need to use the jag throttle body (or aftermarket)and adapt the air-idle.

    Just picked up a black/black E38 740i sport and at 151,000 miles as I'm looking to do the timing chain and guides,... Supercharger time

    Any chance the machined pieces are still available for this?
    What would I need to provide?

    Thanks in advance!

    I guess if money wasn’t important you would go with a Whipple, then you can get the correct front inlet.

    Easily said, but without a cast intake intercooler system it's not feasible, But by all means give it a try.
