Don't want to call this a project but.... Sold the golf to my sister and picked up this '90 g60. Everything kinda works, except the super charger.... :D

Don't really have a plan yet. Swap, twin screw or turbo. It was cheap and I always wanted one so :bam!:

I don't see signs of shrapnel in the charge piping yet, but it must be close.... I'm only seeing 5lbs. of boost.

Is Kompressor Kanada still rebuilding those? Might be worth sending it out before you have to buy a new hood as well. :D

Don't think the exist anymore. The cheapest option is to attemp a rebuild myself. Next would be to send in to this guy on eBay who has rebuilt several and has excellent feedback. We're talking about $475.

To get bbm to rebuild it, I might as well save up an extra $500 and buy a used twin screw. But now were getting into money that would easily do an aeb or aba turbo swap...

Um, yes, much jealous!

Awesome get. It was between a g60 and the Vette way back when I was in Atlanta. Still want one at some point as a daily driver.

remove super charger, install turbo. continue to win.


btw I would take the charger off now.... run it n/a for now, not worth the risk.

Started to tear into the car mainly to take a look at the g-lader... Looky what I found :D I think those strips belong inside the charger. I'd like to send it out to BBM even to see if its good enough to rebuild.

Image

Rounded a allen bolt trying to remove the charger so naturally I pulled the engine...

Image

Then felt the engine bay was nasty and decided to clean it up a bit. Then felt there are too much un needed crap in there too. ABS, AC, PS all going in the trash. Then start filling some holes and smoothing things up a bit.

Before

Image

After

Image

Only real rust I found too which was nice.
