Project Ea Fairmont

It was sugested to me by jack that i make a post about this.... for the past 2 years i have been spending all my money and time (apart from drinkin time and money) on my ea fairmont. so far its a decent car but i just felt i had to do something different.

So what i decided to do was purchase a supercharger off a toyota v6 (not sure what car or engine) but i had seen that castlemain rod shop have a kit to fit these superchargers onto a commodore v6. Since then i had spent a few weeks talking to people about making the custom brackets etc. And the job is almost done now so follow the link below and check out the pictures and keep checking for new mods almost weekly

Re: Project Ea Fairmont

I don't want to burst your bubble too much but on a 1.4:1 drive ratio that blower will struggle to make more than 4psi. My friend had one on a 202 motor. He now has two of them and is putting them both on a 265. I know for a fact that two of these blowers on a worked 350 at the 1.4:1 drive ratio makes 10 psi.

Also spinning these things faster severely heats the air. I think their max speed is 12,000rpm which means 2:1 is max for you.

Re: Project Ea Fairmont

nice work TUFF EA6 - that blower install looks very neat, and even if it does only make 4 psi that should still be a pretty decent power up, considering the amount of money you would have spent? the blowers are cheap as if i recall correctly...

are you going to run the blower off the air conditioning drive section of the crank? what are you going to do about the computer side of things? the stock comp might handle it???

Re: Project Ea Fairmont

Hey TUFFEA

Good to see someone trying some new things instead of just getting the both on kit.
Did you get that blower from the Motor Shed in Geelong??

I looked into this exact same setup a little while ago, however, I ended up leaving it because he told me the blower was from a 2L.

I think the standard ECU will be fine with that blower.
Hope it works out well for ya.

Simon

Re: Project Ea Fairmont

On fordsix.com there is a guy with the toyota blower on a 4.1 crossflow in his cortina making 10psi, so it can be done.

Re: Project Ea Fairmont

Hey I just found out a little more info.
On a 3.8L V6, you can expect about 2.5-3 psi from that blower. However, with a smaller wheel you can run about 6-8psi. Castlemain Rod Shop can sell you the wheel.

Re: Project Ea Fairmont

tuffea.

great to see ur doing some good mods there.

with the blower... the sc12 (i presume thats what you have) is off a 2 lt mr2 toyota.

you may be able to bolt on a sc14 used on the 2.5-3lt toyota i6 from the cressida using ur existing brackets from ur sc12 at a later date. worth a look.

one thing to keep in mind....

the clutch pulley on these things are there for a reason.
the screw/rotor's in the blower can at times touch the casings, and they get very very hot internaly, causing problems with seals, and the teflon coating on the screws suffer premature wear.

hook up the clutch to a switched relay. and only turn it on when you need it. a good way to switch it is using a throttle switch. say 50% throttle the thing comes on.

good luck mate, keep up the good work, and keep us updated.

cheers.joe.
