Default Supercharged B230F 2006-21 bump

I'm getting another 240 from 1990 soon and want to supercharge this one. Has anybody done this before, and would someone be willing to write up some sort of document about how one would go about doing this?

Good starting point would be to use a turbocharged motor, as then the stock management would all work. Just with low boost.

Centrigiful superchargers can run quite high boost actually.

It's definately been done before. It can work pretty well actually, and it's something I'd consider one day.

A guy in the VCOV has done this with a Toyota SC in a 1988 B230F 240 with an M47.
It uses largely Volvo 740T and Saab 9000T plumbing and elbows, etc and runs a RRFPR on stock ecu.
3-4psi of boost, set conservatively, and gives a reliable 50% increase in power at the rear wheels.

I think I have some pics.
email me or PM if interested. My webspace with my ISP is full and I cant upload anymore.

+1. Mechanically, it still hasn't changed (yet).

I have an Eaton M90 from a Supercoupe Thunderbird available in fair conditon. It has the solid coupler, not the floppy rubber thing that needs replacing. The Eaton website has some good details.

I broke my camera, but I can probably hit my housemate up for his tomorow. I think incl. UPS ground(about a week) shiping to MD, about 170. TB special

the charger spins free, has its own oil sump with oil that aint bad in it, and you will need to fab a new lid or get one of the screwy F0rd connector pipes...most likely custom will work best from a plumbing standpoint.

it is about like this one:

OK, here are the pics of the supercharged 240, as promised. They're not ideal, but you get the idea.

If my memory serves me right, someone was trying to do that on a marine B230. Don't think that particular user ever posted images of the finished project.

It's certainly doable, but there's obviously no off-the-shelf intakes to make that conversion work.

I put a bunch of thought into where I would put an M45 or M62 supercharger in a 240 engine bay. The best spot is where the AC compressor sits (you have to remove the bracket). I also ended up with some difficulty fitting a power steering pump. It would have to move to the opposite side of the engine above the exhaust or you would have to convert to electric power or manual steering.

I also tried to figure out how to mount it on the exhaust side. The slant of the engine doesn't give enough room without making the tubing going into the supercharger rather low profile. It would also be necessary to get the belts right. My biggest concern was either converting to a serpentine belt or how to get enough belt wrap with a V belt to minimize losses to slipping.

Would be easier on a B20.

I am actually trying to figure out how to do it with my B20. It probably wouldn't be hard to mount it in the same spot as the factory AC compressor and either use a draw through setup with the stock FI manifold and an intercooler in the front or beef up a Weber DGV for blow through.

Like so?



Relating to the B230 space issue, I think you could probably get away with making super long runners that go over the valve cover, and putting the supercharger on the left side of the engine.

Looks like an SC14 off a Previa. That is a good idea. You could make an adapter plate and bolt a DCOE straight to the inlet on the supercharger. You could also do a single HIF44 like the MGB people do.
