    Wow, this thread seems too good to be true!!! Bmckelvey, I have a small mill in my garage and have thought extensively about trying to make my own manifold for the M122 supercharger, this thread is a huge inspiration and confirmation that I'm not entirely mad. Would you be willing to share any of your blueprints or cad files? I feel confident enough to measure for myself, but the thought of tearing apart my daily driver for that long scares me. I don't really have the time to undertake this project at the moment, but would like to start gathering the pieces to make it a reality down the road. I would like to build the manifold myself, but even if I have to buy one from you, it means that I could pursue the forced induction dream later in life. Any help, ideas, or encouragement are appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Conner

    Hi Connor, I enjoy making all my own fittings, right up to making the complete manifold. And, with the M122 I even machined the base of the supercharger to provide a flat surface to mount it to the manifold. I used a multi-axis CNC machine with a CAD program that creates the control file for the CNC mill. I also have a lathe and mill machine in my garage but it is a little small for milling out a huge chunk of aluminum required for the supercharger and manifold. I am happy to share the info I have on how to do this. Send me a PM with your email or just contact me at [email protected].

    Send him an email, it's listed above and see if he has any, my understanding is he stopped making them but may have a few I'm not sure?

    I have a 2009 4.0 v6 mustang I have a kn&n cai and in the beginning of 2017 I am buying pypes mid x pipes dual exhaust system and bama tuner. My next upgrade after that will be turbo kit. I found out the 4.0 v6 is a cast iron block so it can handle a lot of pressure so I could run a turbo kit at 7 to 9 psi without changing my internals.

    Hi everyone, I am looking to get about 2" drop to eliminate the wheel gap and wondering if the lowering springs will do the job or should I save money for coilovers. I was reading somewhere that shock absorbers don't work properly with shorter springs and therefore don't provide good damping. Is that true?

    So I did some homework and decided not to go with short springs and save for the coilovers a little more This article was pretty helpful so if you had the same question just check it out Coilovers Are Pricey - Why Would I Spend My Money For Them?. I really like the fact that coilovers are adjustable

    When are you experiencing wheel hop? What tires are you rolling on?

    There are so many mods to choose from. It's so hard which one to choose.

    I would start on any bolt ons really. Thats what i did and i noticed a difference in every part i bought if you want to notice a big difference i would suggest a tuner i have a bama tune 91 octane and wow that really woke up my 09 4.0 v6 stang
    My auto shifting pulls hard feels good a lot of people think i have a manual.
    Gears ring and pinions also is a big difference and of course a power adder like a supercharger or turbo there are so many difference with each set up and different styles for different things you would like to do overall they are all good options and you will get the hp your looking for.i choosed to go with a rear mount turbo system for many reasons. My 4.0 is my daily driver and soon a complete replica of the transformers saleen cop car.

    Thank you for the info.
    a bama tune 91 octane how does this work? Is it something I could install myself or do?
    I’m in California and here are bound by the scourge of emissions. Would I still be able to pass smog every 2 years? Could I enab/disable it for this reason?
    Now is this a service that you are providing? How much? I know lots of questions I hope you don’t mind. Thank you

    Well i bought mine through americanmuscle.com bama tuner for your year of mustang.
    I bought the one with lifetime tunes cost me about $400.00 but its worth it
    After you buy it you have to submit information to bama and let them know what you would like to do with your car.
    I had told them faster shifting points
    My car is an auto so it lags between shifting so this helps out a lot and removes my limiter so i have no limiter
    I ask for a racing tune 91 octane because gas here in the west coast i am only able to find 91 premium i also have a stock tune just incase.
    Now once you get your tuner then you will have directions to plug that in to your obd then turn your car on where there is power like the radio on so do not turn the key over.
    Then its easy to navigate to your tune then upload after 45 minutes your car turns into a whole other car faster aggressive and fun to drive that helps get the most out of your car and any additional parts that require a tune. Now the smog emissions test i have never had a problem passing with my 91 octane tune so i never have to tune back to stock. I only plug it in to my computer for upgraded parts that i install which i have to do that soon i just bought 4 extra parts aome are performance parts.
