Default LS400 Supercharger Project

I just received my Richwood manifold and I must say it is a work of art!!! I will be going with the M90 setup of a thunderbird to hopefully get somewhere near 250 RWHP. If any of you guys are interested in what it will take to pull this off, just give me a holler.

What Year? M90 setup? That will be a hell of a project man. Don't think it'll just bolt up dude, you've got alot of things to think about.

actually, most of it should, especially since it seems like he had richwood include the M90 spec top plate

wish i could do something like this for my LS without having to build the motor (stupid VVTi skinny rods )

oh wells, il have a new 1uz project car within the next year


good luck man, make sure u keep us updated and toss up a link to a thread on lextreme if uve already (very likely) made one there

Are you kidding? Of course we're all interested.

Also check with ScottURNot in the SC forum--he put a ported M90 in his 1UZ...not sure he's got it fully tuned yet. He also has plans for a smaller pulley, I believe.

He had to fab some pulleys and stuff that the semi-kit from Richwood didn't fit--I hope that's not the case with your situation.

^ x2. I badly want to fit a supercharger under the hood to go along with some planned exterior mods. Gotta have the power to back up the beauty.

Keep us posted!

The Manifold clears the starter and emission pump for California 1UZFE's
I had a little trouble fitting it over the bypass pipe, so I had to grind some areas down. Scotturnot also had the same experience.

Everything is looking good thus far, I decided to go with the Aeromotive Fuel pressure regulator just to be safe. More to come soon....
